He married PURRIER, Hannah. John Roe; or Rowe as the name is also spelled was the American Immigrant. Although traditional says he came from Ireland, he was of the English religion and of English ancestry and settled in an English colony. He was born about 1628. He located in Dromad Meadow, now Jefferson, NY, in 1667. Re-came to America, however, as early as 1655, and was for a time at Southampton, Long Island.

"Roe: The name is of Norse orgian, and came into Normandy with the Norseman, where the spelling became ( Roe, Rou, Rous, andLeRoux ). One of the Chiefs of William the Conquerer bore the name (Rou). The name became common in England as a surname after the custom of bearing surnames was adopted, and the spelling had generally been Roe. The English Roes trace their ancestry to Turehil Rufus, or LeRoux who came with the Conquerer and held lands in country Norfolk. The Earis of Stanbroke are of this family. The Irish Roe family is a branch of the English stock. In 1620 Donnel Roe was a hief of the Irish house of McCarthy. In 1384 the last of the O'Connor King of Connaught died and the common inheritance was divided between the O'Connor Don and the O'Connor Roe. In 1480 the Earldoms of Ormond were held by a Roe.
