Message (#590):Hello I learned not long ago that my grandfather, James A. Roche, was born in southern Ireland, likely County Cork. I believe that he was born in 1885. He married Josephine A. Manser, whom I believe was born (likely in southern England)in 1888. They had three children, Denis Brian Roche(August 13, 1919, Salford, Lancashire - my father, Eileen D. Roche (June 1921, West Derby, Lancashire) and Kathleen E. Roche (June 1922, Salford, Lancashire). My grandfather and Kathleen died in June, 1941, in the London bombing. I have only managed to find a little bit of information from English records but could find nothing going back from the birth records of my father and two aunts for either my grandfather or grandmother. My mother once mentioned that she though my grandfather came from somewhere near Limerick. I am wondering if you might be able to help me in my search. Thank you so much.

Message (#585):My paternal ancestry comes from Glanworth, Cork, Ireland. My great-great-grandfather was Francis Everard Roche (sometimes with an Allen in there, too!). He had 5 children with his first wife, Annie. She did not come with him from Ireland. He married again in Utah. Her name was Caroline. His son, Francis Allen Everard Roche was my great-grandfather. He married Sarah Bradford. They had 10 sons. The second was my grandfather, Francis Vernon Roche. He was born in Box Elder, Utah and died in 1979. My father was Vernon Roche. Anyone out there have any information about Francis and Annie Roche?

Message (#584):Hi everyone. I am looking for information on Edward Roche and/or his son John. Edward was a bootmaker and ladies show importer in Cork city from about 1813 to is death in 1847. He owned (or had a lease on) first 31 Patrick Street then 94 Patrick Street. His wife Eliza and his son John took over the business at that time but Eliza retired in 1853 (the article says they were in business for 40 years!). John ran it until he either immigrated to Boston with his wife Mary Anne Scully Roche and his kids or he died around 1868-1875. John is never found in any records here in the U.S. and my family lore is that he was driven out of town for some reason (maybe for defying the union workers that made the shoes/boots). Is anyone out there related?

Message (#577):My maternal ancestor left County Cork in about 1780-90, according to family tradition, to "get away from THEM." His name was Edward, his surname was spelled Rook(e) when he arrived in England, and he was a gambler who opened a disreputable pub in West Bromwich. He and his brother had sold their farm in County Cork, indicating that they were probably Protestants since most Catholics were tenant farmers. His son Joseph got married in an Anglican church in England. I read that Rook was ananglicisation of Rourke. The spelling of names in old records varies - my own also appears in Ireland as Lemon, Lennon, Leamon and Leman but was probably originally Lamont or Lehman. I have been unable to find any trace of any Edward Rourke/O'Rourke/Rorke/Ruark etc circa 1780 in the Cork records online. This morning however I found Edward Roche, a Freeman of the City of Cork, admitted 10/1/1777 and another Edward Roche admitted 28/4/1790.Nobody from the Rourke/O'Rourke/Rorke/Ruark families appears in the list. Maybe my ancestor was a Roche not a Rourke. Any comments are welcomed. I will visit Ireland for the first time next July.

Message (#576):I am seeking the origins of the Michael Roach/Roche (spellings interchangeable in the mid-1800s) who lived in McKeesport PA from mid-1880s until his death in 1917. Michael immigrated from Ireland about 1870-1875, depending on the data source, but no location of origin within Ireland has been found. He was born in Ireland May 1848 (Death Cert), or Apr 1845 (1900 U.S. Census), or Abt 1850 (1880 U.S. Census). Father's name was possibly William Roche (b. 1833). Married Annie McGinty (1848-1898) in the U.S., but no record found. The 1880 U.S. Census shows this family under the name Roach in Bunker Hill, Westmoreland, PA with children: Annie E. (age 7), Thomas J. (age 5), John (age 3), and Michael F. (7m). Per marriage record, Annie married Charles Conkling at McKeesport, PA on 02 Jan 1894, Michael Roach consents to the marriage, and marriage record indicates she was born at Wheeling WV on 03 Feb 1873, but no birth record in WV files that I can find. Thus Michael's immigration and marriage probably before Feb 1873 but the 1900 U.S. Census gives 1875 as the immigration year. Michael Roach is listed in the 1893 McKeesport PA city directory as a laborer. The 1897 McKeesport directory lists Michael Roche (laborer) plus sons Frank L (laborer), John A. (plumber), and Thomas J. (painter) at the same address. John A. Roche (1877-1914) married Anna Martha Chisholm and established a plumbing business in McKeesport. Joseph T. (name order switch) Roche (1875-1910) established a painting and decorating business in McKeesport, married Margaret Hester, and became President of the McKeesport Common Council. Annie McGinty Roche died in 1898 in McKeesport (by this time the family name is Roche), and was a member of St. Peter's Roman Catholic Church of McKeesport. Michael and Frank are listed in the household of daughter/sister Annie and her husband Charles Conkling in the 1900 U.S. Census. I believe DNA testing will eventually lead us to an answer for Michael Roach/Roche's origin, and I encourage all Roche/Roach males to participate in the FamilyTreeDNA Roache/Roach/Roche Project.
