I am a desc of Anna Rolfe, but we could never get an exact tree. We keep getting an Anne in England. Thomas Rolfe married first Elizabeth Washington at the age of 17. She died in childbirth in 1633 giving birth to a daughter named Anne. This child was raised by cousin Anthony Rolfe.
Then there is an Anna born 1656, but we don't know her mother. There seems to be an Indian marriage and a child named Thomas Powhatan Rolfe, called Powhatan. He married a Miss Penn and down the line had a Wayland desc. A Ruth Dunnington of Florida was a Wyland Desc, and had the history back to Powhatan. I have not been able to locate her records and she is dead now. There is a relationship to a Rolph family of Ky, and cousin Rolfe Barbour of Union, Ohio, near Cleveland. One of the best books ever writen about Pocahontas was by Phillip Barbour, so that family seems to know more than the rest of us. At anyrate, I would like to know where Anna fits in. I have been looking for over 49 years I I hope to know before I die. I am 77 now.
