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.
All I can tell you is that Roach is also one of my family names. We started from Rockingham County VA.. My first Roach is listed as the brother of Samuel Roach then to Jeremiah Roach who married Elizabeth Null they had Rueben (b.1798 Monroe County VA.) he married Elizabeth Day and they had mygg grandmother Jane. And I think the original Roach I have listed....mother was Elizabeth Rodabaugh. Rodabaughs are from Rotterelam Netherlands. Christian Rodabaugh arrived on the ship Betsy Aug. 27, 1739. I hope these are the correct Roaches'.
