I have been wanting to find more information on the LaRoche family (from the Sav. area,) since I discovered they are part of my heritage. 6th generation grandfather was James LaRoche born in Isle de Re, Charente,France and moved to St. Thomas, St Denis Parrish, Berkeley, S.C. so my 5th generation grandmother was Mary (Princess) LaRouche also in St Phillips Parrish, S.C., then my 4th generation grandmother was Mary Butler from Chatham,Ga. I have often wondered if the street in Sav. was named after the family and if so why. My great,great grandfather Algernon Solomon Richard Milton, was born in Burke County Ga. and had Padam Arum Plantation,then his son, my great grandfather William Riley Milton was born in Appling, Ga. and joined the confederacy war, was in the (Whirlwind Brigade)name they were named due to an article in the Savannah paper. he was stationed in Fl. were he met his wife and settled and had my grandfather, which I never met. Its a small world after all. Strange how we come back to our heritage.Hope this helps you.I recieved this information from my cousin which search out our heritage.
