- All children are listed under John and his first wife, Hannah Middleton Dollins Wroe, but I feel more than likely the only daughter they had together was Hannah and that after the death of his wife he remarried 2) Betty Lamkin, prior to 1867 and the other children probably belongs to this marriage. The eldest son is listed as being Peter and Betty's father's name was Peter.

It is not proven that this is the correct John Wroe that married Betty Lamkin, but circumstantial information leads to this being a good possibility of being correct.
Betty's brother Matthew Lamkin, married unknown Middleton, dau of Capt. Benedict Middleton. Another daughter of Capt. Benedict Middleton, Jane Middleton married George Wroe, brother of John Wroe that was first married to Hannah Middleton Dollins Wroe. Also it is a good possibility that Sally Rust Lamkin, sister of this Betty Lamkin married William Wroe, brother of the above mentioned John Wroe. After the death of John Wroe d. 1794, daughter Sarah A. Wroe is listed as having guardian Sary Rus Wroe whenever she married Samuel King, 1802, Richmond County, Virginia. John's brother, William is listed with wife Salley in birth records of Northumberland County, Virginia.
