~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.
[From LDS Ancestral File Number 12NV-C5Q].
Patrick was born at an undisclosed place in Ireland on 15 Aug 1818.
He emigrated to America and settled in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He probably met Maria Roche in Milwaukee (or possibly New York] and married her there.
Their daughter, Catherine "Kate", was born about a year after their marriage.
Patrick was Maria's senior by about 18 years, so it is possible she may have been his second wife.
Patrick died on 5 April, 1904 and is buried in Calvary Cemetery in Milwaukee. [Kim shows he died on 5 Jan 1904].
