Message (#568):Hello: I've hit a wall on my end researching my genealogy tracing back to my last known Roach ancestor who was Henry Roach, born in 1710, New Kent County, Virginia, US. I know I'm a Roach based on DNA and have contributed to 23andme.com so would be interested if anyone in Ireland/UK of the Roach lineage would also be interested in submitting DNA to this site in hopes of narrowing down my research to a link in Ireland or UK.

Message (#564):Very nice website. I was wondering how easy it is to search family history prior to the early 1800s. Shortly after 1800 William Roach took a ship from Wexford Ireland and sailed to New Brunswick Canada. He married Mary Mooney from Kildare Ireland in 1826. I have quite a substantial family tree from then forward but their life in Ireland and earlier is difficult to search online. I have no doubt we are all of the same family but how far back to find the connection could be very interesting.

Message (#563):I have been trying to research my family tree and I've gotten a few bits of information and been told I'm a descendant of this family line. My father, Michael Dale Roach (b.1956) is originally from Oregon. His father Hubert James Roach (July 22, 1918-February 13, 1976) is buried in Oregon and served in WWII in the army. Hubert's mother's name is Celita Roach (February 19, 1983-Octoer 22, 1962). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Message (#562):Hi -- Great website -- gives me hope that I'll find my Grandfather's birthplace. WILLIAM P. ROCHE, born 1866. Left Ireland at age 16. His dad was a traveling baker, making bread in stone ovens. Heard that there was a fire in their church and all baptismal records were lost, but that the baptismal font survived. Was told this might be Mitchelstown, Ireland. Any thoughts or info would be so greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mary

Message (#561):Hi I am searching for some insight into roots. I was adopted in 1951 from the New York Foundling Hospital. Original name was Michael John Roche. Date of birth was supposedly May 21, 1951. My adoptive parents told me about a large Irish family that could not afford to maintain any more kids. I wonder if that tale strains credulity. If any on this site have any leads please let me know. Thanks.

Message (#552):Re: my message of earlier this evening. I checked ancestry.com and Lawrence Roche was in fact born to Thomas Roche; the dates coincide. So I need to know now where in Ireland Thomas was born! Will send Mr. Hobbes an email. Thanks for any assistance.

Message (#551):I'm replying to John Hobbes and asking a question. Apparently my Roche family, like John's, had some roots in Scranton, PA. My great-grandfather, Lawrence (or Laurence) Roche was born 21 Apr 1867 in Scranton. I do not know his parents' names. The only death info. I have is that he died before 1930. Lawrence married Catherine Liebau; they lived in the Pittsburgh, PA, area. I assume he died there. The couple had 4 children: Lawrence, Selma (my paternal grandmother, who married James Walker Wilkinson), Augusta, and Joseph. Any information on Lawrence's parents would be welcome! Thanks.

Message (#550):This is in reply to Deborah Horan's message, she's grand-daughter of Maria ("Marie") Philomena Roche, born in Dublin. Your grandmother is actually my dad's first cousin. Her mother was Josephine Kavanagh from Tomgarrow, Co. Wexford, and her father was Michael Roche, born just outside Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford. There was 7 children born, Catherine (married Patrick Jordan) Michael, (Married Josephine Kavanagh) Mary (married Bill Donovan), Patrick (married Mrs Kavanagh) John, my grandfather (married Joanna Frayne), James (died aged 22 in 1922), and Ellen or Nellie, (married John Joe Sinnott). I've sent email to your email address but no reply, so hopefully you or your family pop back here to watch messages. Would love to hear from you, or anyone related to this strain of Roche's.

Message (#549):New to this site....My brother pointed me to it. My name is also Michael Roche. I/my family knows we originate from county cork and came to the states in the early 1800's by way of St. John's. Not sure if that was St. John's Newfoundland or New Brunswick. I believe that was John Raphael Roche but would have to firm up the details to see how closely the lineage is. I will have to enlist other family mamebers to get the details and back track as close as is know to us. Was told of an interesting blood relation, Father Philip Roche of the Emerald Isle, a rebel whom had his head placed upon a pike alongside the bridge leading into town during the troubles. Not sure of the date. I will attempt to vist your site again but wanted to introduce myself on behalf of my extended states-side family. Cheers to all! :)
