Hugh Roan is not a known relative, but he has connections to several of my ancestors. His will in Campbell County, Ga., signed 18 Aug. 1845, was witnessed by my ancestor Basset Northen; Basset's father-in-law (also my ancestor) Benjamin Lassetter was executor of Hugh Roan's will. Campbell County deeds show that Benjamin Lassiter (Lassetter) was executor of Hugh "Rowin's" estate on 24 July 1852 (Deed Book E, p. 492), which included plats to land no. 57, 58, 60 and 90 in District 3 of Carroll, "now" (in 1852) Campbell County, Ga.; Sarah Rowin was guardian for Elizabeth, Hugh and Thomas "Rowin." (This land is presently in extreme southwest Fulton County, Ga., near Carroll County.)
Deed Book D, p. 164, shows the deed of 26 Feb. 1840 of "a negro man Ben, about 40 years," for $500 to Elizabeth Bonner of LaFayette County Miss.; George M. Bonner, witness.
The marriage of Eliza "Rowen" to A.J. Tanner is recorded in Campbell County, 21 Jan. 1856. The 1860 census of Carrollton District, Carroll County, no. 173, shows what may be the same family: A.J. Tanner 35 SC, Eliza 20 Ga, Eldorado 5, Andrew J. 3.
