I can't remember if I ever asked you or not. Are you kin to the Las Vegas Lambs? How about the Arkansas Lambs and Merle Haggard?
To be FFV, your ancestors needed to have been in Virginia before 1650.

If you're interested in Roanoke Island, I highly recommend the book by Lee Miller about it, written about 5 years ago. Even if you don't buy into everything she says, her research is extensive and fascinating. She believes the lost colony was sabotaged from the outset and she treats her investigation like a murder story. She is also a descendent of Native Americans and has some personal knowledge of events that were mentioned in period diaries. She believes that we must look find what was happening in England to understand what was happening at Roanoke. I couldn't put the book down after I started it.
