According to records, John Roach m: Elizabeth Adams 14 Nov. 1837 in Greene Co., IN, had daughter Artela M. Roach, 1 Apr. 1840. We have researched Roach families in Indiana and so far found no John, wife Elizabeth, or Artela. Artela m: Peter Cowan 30 Aug. 1855 in Daviess Co., IN, and was my 2nd great grandmother. We are researching the Roach families in Davies and Greene Co. and so far no connections found, and are ready to try other counties. We did find Peter Cowan, wife ATTILLA, in 1870 Daviess Co., with my great grandmother America Missouri Cowan. Missouri married Thomas J. Myers.
In our research we found Roach families from VA and TN, with children born in TN and IN. If anyone can help with our John Roach, we would greatly appreciate the information. We have nothing other than the marriage date, and birth record for Artela.
