Historical Sketches of the Campbell, Pilcher, and Kindred Families
The following is copied from the historical archives of Dauphin County, Pennsylvania:
"Archibald Roan, the son of Andrew Roan and Margaret Walker, was a native of Derry Township, Lancaster County (now Dauphin County), Pennsylvania, where he was born about 1760. His father dying about 1768, he was placed in care of his uncle, the Rev. John Roan. In the will of the latter, this mention is made: 'I allow to my nephew, Archibald Roan (in case the above persons, the Rev. George Duffield, and my executors apprehend him religiously disposed), twenty pounds towards his college expenses.' He studied law and removed to Tennessee, where he obtained a license to practice that profession; he was shortly afterwards appointed District Attorney General; and in 1796 was honored with the position of Judge of the Supreme Court of Tennessee. From 1801 to 1804 he was Governor of that State, and afterwards held a number of prominent offices. He was a gentleman of education, a leading jurist, and an honored citizen of the State of his adoption. Tennessee gave his name to one of her counties."
