Re: George Roche missing
You are right. These are two different George Roches. I realized that after I sent the message.
Also I am afraid that our William M. Roches are different persons also. William Moneypenny Roche was born in Zanesville Ohio abt.1859-60. He married Virginia Clifford (born abt 1862-3) They had three children, Arthur (my grandfather and the oldest) George (the one that went missing) and Margaret. William died when his children were young, prior to 1900 but I'm not sure where, possibly in Columbus Ohio where my grandfather was born. So this William M Roche spent most of his life in Ohio. His father, also William Roche is even more illusive. I thought I had found him on a census, showing he came from Virginia, but I'm not at all sure thats him.
So I will keep searching. Good luck in your search. who knows our paths may cross again.Thanks for your letter.
