I am currently researching the following family line from Cork, Ireland:
1. John Roche (from Glanworth) married Ellen Doyle (from Ballyhea) in 1788 at Charleville.One of their sons was Garret Roche who was born in 1798 at Mitchelstown.They also had a daughter Catherine, born in 1794 at Mitchelstown.
2. Garret Roche married Johanna Battam (Bottom) in 1830 at Shandrum.They had 4 children, all born in Shandrum: John (1831), Jeremiah (1833), Mary (1835), and Ellen (1838).
3. Jeremiah Roche migrated to Australia in 1864 and settled in Whorouly, Victoria.He married Mary Durnan in 1865 in Beechworth, Victoria.They had 6 children: John, Garret, Patrick, Jeremiah, Ann, and Lawrence.
Lawrence Roche was my grandfather.
If anyone has a connection or any information on this family line, please feel free to contact me.
