    ~1800 - Somewhere in Ireland:

    My great-great-great grandfather, Mathew Roche [aka Roach], was born somewhere in Ireland around 1805. He may have immigrated to America before 1830. At the time of the 1830 Census a Mathew Roach of approximately the right age was living [and working] at the US Navy Yard in Brooklyn, New York. Mathew married an Irish immigrant named Catherine around 1835 and settled, for a while at least, in New York, probably in West Chester Township, Westchester County, just across the Hudson River from northern New Jersey. He may have immigrated with a brother or cousin and shared living quarters for several years after their arrival in this country. In the 1840 census there was a Mathew Roach of the right age with a wife of the correct age sharing a home with another couple in the same age group in West Chester.

    In April, 1836, Mathew and Catharine’s daughter, Maria [Marie?] Roche, was born in New York. They also had at least one other child, Catharine Roche, who was born in New York about 1842. They may also have had several children who died.

    Sometime between 1842 and 1850 the Roche’s moved across the Hudson River and settled in the town of Harrison in Hudson County, New Jersey, just a short distance north of Newark. Mathew worked as a gardener in Harrison.

    It is possible that Mathew Roche and his family joined the increasing number of hardy souls heading west for cheap land and an, eventually, better life style, but it seems more likely that they remained in the Newark area for the rest of their lives. I have not been able to locate them in any census after 1850, so Mathew, at least, may have died young. It is possible that his wife, Catherine, survived him but remarried before 1860.

  • Notes 

    • [information from Johanna Myatt & Nancy Burns] {verbal info from Alice Roddy~Jones]


      Catherine Burns~Roddy married Joseph Myatt on 5 December, 1881, sometime after Charles Francis Roddy died/deserted her.
      I understand from Aunt Alice Roddy~Jones that the family lived in Denver,Colorado . [The LDS Ancestral File shows that Catherine Burns died in Denver in 1915, and married James Napper subsequent to her marriage to Joseph.]
      According to Uncle Bob (Robert E. L. Roddy) one of his Myatt uncles was a railroad engineer and offered to "adopt" him. The accuracy of this information is questionable due to the apparent complete lack of contact beween the Roddy's and Myatts between about 1906 and 1932 at which time Uncle Bob had already run away from home. [However, Kit Roddy~Barnett remembers having Thanksgiving Dinner with Clyde Myatt and his family in El Segundo, California when Bob was a boy].

    • [from Caitlynn Balding data base on Ancestry.Com]

      Joseph Peter Myatt was born in South Bend, St. Joseph, Indiana in 1857 (making him two years younger than Kate Burns).
      Joseph died at an undisclosed location in 1908.
