I am also descended from the Roques/De Roques family from the St. Louis area.
My g-grandfather was Ernest Edwin Roques born 1893 in Leclede Co., MO
His parents were Rev. Benjamin F. Roques born 1869 in Jefferson Co., MO and Cora Ida Detwiler.They are buried in Dent County, MO.
His parents were Jean Tolbert Chambers Roques born 1824 in MO.Not sure where.He married Rebecca McCauley and Elizabeth Turner.
His parents were John De Roques born 1783, (not sure where) and Margaretta Bedwell.
I do not know who his parents were yet, but I suspect his father was a Jacques Emanuel Roques.
Jacques had a brother William De Roques who I believe is buried at Jefferson-Barracks in St. Louis but I do not have any other info on him except a birth year of 1784.
I have some siblings of John Roques also.I do not know of a Catherine but if you would like to email me email@example.com, I would be happy to share what I know with you.
