Lost Colony of Roanoke

This may be a really dumb question, and apologies if that is the case, but I feel like I’m missing something.

Reading about the Roanoke Colony on Wikipedia it says this:

β€˜Upon White’s return he found the settlement fortified but abandoned. The cryptic word, "CROATOAN," was found carved into the palisade, which White interpreted to mean the colonists had relocated to Croatoan Island. Before he could follow this lead, rough seas and a lost anchor forced the rescue mission to return to England.’

So, the message the colonists left was β€˜Croatoan’, therefore it would be logical to conclude that they went to Croatoan Island. And no one checked Croatoan Island. So, surely, we can assume that’s where they went? They had lived there before, they had relationships with the native people there, no one ever confirmed that they weren’t there, and their own clue suggests they went there.

Why is this considered a massive mystery, when it seems completely logical to conclude they were at Croatoan Island?

The Lost Colony of America/ Roanoke Mystery - Possibly Solved

My first write-up here; apologies if there’s formatting errors, or if I did this incorrectly! ETA: I didn’t know this was a well-known theory; mods please let me know if I should delete this post, as everyone seems to be dreading this post and write-up....

For those here in the U.S., I’m almost certain this was briefly touched upon in grade school history classes. The story drew some inspiration for American Horror Story. It’s been covered or referenced in Batman comics, Superman comics, and Stephen King’s Storm of the Century. The mystery of what could have happened to the colony of British settlers that attempted to settle off the coast of Roanoke Island, North Carolina, in a settlement founded by Captain John White. In 1587, some settlers, led by Captain John White, sailed to England restock supplies. Upon returning in 1590, they found a desolate island with no sign of the settler colony. Homes looked empty, but it seemed as though settlers had left mid-daily routine. No bodies were found. One tree had a word carved into it, β€œCROATOAN.” The missing settlers were never found. The first English baby born in America, White’s granddaughter who was aptly named Virginia after the Raleigh colony, was also among the vanished. Approximately 100 settlers disappeared completely. Now, there’s a possible update, in a book written by historian Scott Dawson. Dawson confirms what was always the most likely story: that the settlers went to go live with the friendly Indigenous tribe of people on the nearby Hatteras island. If his theory is true, the mysterious, eerie clue left on a single tree turned out to be no mystery at all: the tribe was called the Croatoans.

Anyone here remember this story from grade school, or otherwise? Anyone remember any other theories that have come up? Any thoughts on Dawson’s (and the most widely-accepted) explanation?

Personally, I believe that, of any given set of explanations for an event or happening, the simplest explanation is most likely the correct one - Occam’s razor.

Colony of Roanoke Site X excavations and questions about old colonial forts

Through some googling I have not been able to find a map of where they have been excavating at Site X in search of clues about the colony. I have found that they did some digging north of Salmon Creek, and found some artifacts confirming the presence of Europeans in the specific time period.

What was the architecture of English colonial forts in 1500-1600? From looking at Jamestown I see they have palisades that meet to form a circle. Was it common to have two rows of palisades (how far apart usually), multiple circles (how big are the circles usually), and what shape were these forts generally?

Interesting update on the β€œlost colony” at Roanoke

I love Josh and Chuck’s episodes about any kind of mystery, so it wasn’t too long ago that I relistened to their June 4, 2013 episode, What happened to the lost colony at Roanoke?

Today I stumbled across this article with what I found to be a pretty satisfying update. Enjoy!

Was the theory that the Lost Colony of Roanoke assimilated with the nearby Native American tribe a popular theory before the last decade?

I recently read an article that there is evidence suggesting that the Roanoke Colony simply just assimilated into the nearby tribe, but whenever I have watched documentaries, read about the Lost Colony, or learned about it in school, the theories are always much more deadly (disease, murder, and so on). I have only seen this idea suggested in the past decade. There was no evidence of brutality or a reason for them to leave, and it's completely logical that they would end up with the people who knew the land they were on and how to survive off of it. Was it just the assumption that colonists would have never tried to get along with the Native Americans?

The Lost Colony of Roanoke

Mass Disappearance: What happened at Roanoke

Quite possibly one of the strangest and most mysterious mass disappearances is the case of the lost colony of Roanoke! It was John White an Englishman that brought more than 100 men, women and children to the island of Roanoke in North Carolina in 1587.

This was one of the first attempts by the English to achieve a presence in the new world. It was Sir Walter Raleigh that dispatched White, the original plan was for White and the colonist to be dropped off in the Chesapeake Bay area and establish a colony there. But, on route they stopped by Roanoke on the 15 men that were left there to maintain English presence. However, when white got there the 15 men were nowhere to be seen. it was then decided that the Colonist should stay at Roanoke!

After a while the supplies began to at Roanoke began to run out. So, pressure was put onto White to go back to England and ask to assistance. Reluctantly White set sail back to England. White left behind 115 colonists including his wife, his daughter and his granddaughter. After a while White set back to Roanoke with the much-needed supplies and a new crew, White made it back to Roanoke on august 18th 1590. But, when White and the new crew got there not a single person could be found! Plus, it was apparent that every structure had been taking down, carefully and not in a rush. Plus, there was no sign that anything had been destroyed forcefully.

There was no sign that the colonist had been forced out or had been under attack. But, yet all 115 colonists were nowhere to be seen! The only thing White found that was out of the ordinary was the word Croatoan that had been etched into one of the trees!

The name Croatoan was the name of one of the local Indian tribes, however this tribe was friendly towards the colonists White never managed to find out if the colonists stayed with the Croatoans and with bad weather white was forced to go back to England. White never came back to Roanoke and subsequently never found out what happened to the colonists and what happened to his own family!

Even to this date no one knows what happened to the colonists. Some theories have been put forward. The strongest theory is that they assimilated with the local Croatoan tribe or perhaps were massacred by a local tribe. However, no evidence has ever been found to support this theory. The thing is with Roanoke mystery is, no one really knows what happened to the col

Why didn't the Salem coven attempt to subdue the Roanoke colony?

Both Cordelia's coven and the supernatural goings-on at the former Roanoke colony became widely known thanks to TV at the end of their seasons.
Since the brutality of the ghosts was captured on film multiple times and the end of Roanoke implies things were going to get worse, I wonder why the witches didn't intervene?
North Carolina is only a few states over from Louisiana and Cordelia seemingly has jurisdiction over the entire US (maybe the world?). I know we never really see the witches in either Coven or Apocalypse going out of their way to help others but surely an enormous and well-documented supernatural bloodbath would be cause to at least investigate.
Some of their powers don't work against ghosts but they seem to have the power to banish them (Behold started to with Beau), bind them to more confined spaces (like Behold threatened with Moira), make them human and then kill them again (like with the Axe Man) or even release them on to the afterlife (like Madison did with Moira). Even if the Butcher didn't want to go, they could release the majority of the colony and trap the Butcher in a closet somewhere.
I guess the only reason I can think of (besides the writers don't care) is that they wouldn't want to/couldn't fuck with ScΓ‘thach, being their first Supreme and all but surely Cordelia as the current, living Supreme is more powerful than a ghost witch?
