There are no known descendents, but there should be descendents of
ancestors of the settlers who may have participated in DNA studies.

I hate to be always negative, but there are no known descendants of the
Roanoke colony. We don't even know if there were any survivors.
The so-called "Lumbee Indians" of North Carolina claim Roanoke colony
survivors among their ancestors; but "George" is not a surname among

An 8% NA MLE from DNAPrint is way too low to assume you have any NA
ancestry, at all. Only good old-fashioned standard genealogical
research will be capable of answering your questions, in my opinion.
