Someone went to Childers Cemetery in Arkansas Co AR, to look for the stones of John L Roach and his wife,Clarissa "Clara" Foreman Roach. She was my great grandfather's sister. Their stones were not found, but they sent pictures of two stones. One said "James E Roach 1875-1921". The other said "James E Roach 1875-1921 This monument place here in memory of our father buried in an unknown grave by Johnnie and Alice". I am wondering if there were two men by the name of James E Roach, living in this area. This is the one I am looking for. 1880 Point De Luce, Arkansas, ArkansasPage Number 36A John ROACH Self M Male W 28 AR Farmer AL AL Clara ROACH Wife M Female W 24 IL Keeping House IL IL Malissie ROACH Dau S Female W 8 AR AR IL Johny ROACH Son S Male W 5 AR AR IL James ROACH Son S Male W 3 AR AR IL

I found this obituary, I have abbreviated, this is evidently the son Johnny, who with his sister, Alice, erected the monument to their father. Greenville SC online news Johnnie William Roach Sr., 83, of 1718 Saluda Dam Road, Easley, departed this earth June 24, 2001, at the home he shared with his wife of 57 years, Pearl Louise Kelley Roach. Mr. Roach was born Jan. 21, 1918, in DesArk, Ark. He was the son of the late James Elsworth Roach and the late Addie Holt Roach. Surviving are his wife, Pearl "Doll" Roach, of the home; two sisters, Lilly T. Horvath and Alice Sams, of Arkansas;
He was predeceased by three brothers, Thomas L., Delbert and Lloyd Roach; and two sisters, Emma Deljunco and Ruby Shirman.
Is this his brother, Loyd? LOYD ROACH 15 Nov 1931 Jul 1981 72042 (De Witt, Arkansas, ARArkansas I did find another one, Thomas Roach, but I think he is from the family of William Roach and Dolly Downey Roach. If James E Roach died in 1921, when did he father all these children? I am thinking there were two James E Roachs, one born May 1878, and one 3 Sep 1877. I just can't find two different ones in the same year census.
