The missing Roanoke residents is now known as the Lost Colony. One early speculation was that the Spanish had raided the settlement but no records could prove this. It was possible that the Native Americans could have sitll been mad at the Lane colony and killed all the colonist. The whites had never found any evidence to prove this either. They moved to live with the Croatonas. Near the 1700's white settlers were startled to find that Native Americans living on the Lumber had blue eyes, built houses, and had English names. According to a record found in the British record offfice in London, Powhatan miserably slaughtered men, women, and shildren of the first plantatrion at Roanoke.
