The story of Edward J. Roye, former president of Liberia, continues from the Wednesday edition of The Advocate. His story will run throughout the weekend. During the spring of 1832, Edward J. Roye attended the Ohio University at Athens until the end of the fall term in 1835. Roye went on to teach in Chillicothe in 1836 but did not remain there. He returned to his hometown in the summer of 1837.

In the fall of that same year, Roye traveled west, following in his father's footsteps to "find the lands left him in Illinois by his father."

Yet, Roye never reached his destination. Instead, he settled in Terre Haute, Ind., where his father also had lived for a period of time. By the beginning of 1840, Roye had established himself in Indiana and in partnership with a white man, purchased a half lot near the county courthouse.
