Youtube . . . A beautiful little video about Eleanor Dare
As I just wrote Marilyn Rae personally, it never would have been possible for me to figure out the 28 authentic Eleanor Dare stones found the the Chattahoochee River Valley had not she contacted me in mid-2013 about a book she had found in the “Fastansy-Utopia” bin at the Carter Brown Memorial Library. The 356 year-old book by the Rev. Charles de Rochefort was filled with descriptions of the Southeast in the 1600s that were radically different than what all textbooks taught. While investigating Rochefort’s book, I splurged and purchased the last copy of An Archaeological Survey of Northern Georgia by Robert Wauchope. The rest is history.
A big thank you to all POOF members out there, who are constantly feeding me new information. I think that you will find Part Two of our series on the Roanoke Colony, fascinating.
