Mr. I. Clifford Roll, who is a member of the Historical and Philosophical Society, is very proud of the unusual distinction of having three generations of Rolls in the American Revolution as patriots, and he is also proud of the truly American line which goes back to the daughter of a Mohawk chief. He is a member of the Lafayette Chapter, Sons of the American Revolution, in Akron, Ohio, which he has served in various offices and as secretary. He is one of few living members of the organization who could become a member on the record of a great grandfather.
