Did you have ancestors in Roanoke, Virginia in 1902?

+7 votes

I've just started transferring my family tree with citations to Wikitree, hopefully clearing up a lot of the misinformation that has been attached to it by others on Familysearch. In the process of looking for information on my Fox lines I ran across the following notice in what I think is a Ronoake, Virginia newspaper. I will provide a link and a list of the names in the notice below. I don't think any of them connect to my lines but they may be helpful to others. There are a lot that are Fox but there are a few other surnames.

Thanks for sharing this Sandra.

More people are likely to find this if you edit your original post and change the question title to something like:

Did you have ancestors in Roanoke, Virginia in 1902?
Thank you for the suggestion. As I said, I am just starting to use this site and thrilled that it gives me the opportunity to pass on stuff that I run across in my searches that don't exactly pertain to me but might help others.
