After spending just over an hour looking up Ella Roach on familysearch.org, ancestry.com, fold3.com, and heritagequest.com, I’ve only been able to find out a few things about this girl. Based on the color of her skin, it is believed that she has ancestors in Europe that may have traveled to America before her time. Also based on the old picture and how it was taken, I can assume the picture was taken was probably sometime between 1860 and 1900. Sadly, due to the fact that I lack some very important details about her, I was unable to match her with anyone on any of the previously stated sites. Though I do have it narrowed down to about 1000 results.
I am a grrandchild of Ralph Leroy Roach, he was born in Akron, Colo December 23, 1932, he died October 18, 1961. He married Martha Riggs and had 3 children. I believe he was killed by a train. Not sure how or why. I would like to know more about his death and his short 28 years of life. Also would like to know of other family members, his sibilings, parents and where Roach originated from. Thank you for reading.
