I am looking for my Roche family, begining with Edward Roche who was born in Ireland on June 2, 1798. He married a woman named Maria (maiden name unknown). Edward died in Brooklyn in August of 1858 and is buried in the Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn, NY. This Roche family has a family burial plot in Greenwood Cemetery containing 22 plots. I am not sure what year they immigrated to America, but some of their children were born in Ireland and Some in New York. Their children were:
