Birth: Apr. 12, 1854
Randolph County

Death: Sep. 17, 1931

Eld. J. B. Roach was a useful preacher in Randolph County for many years. Like several others of his day he was converted and joined a United Baptist Church at first but left that church because of its anti-missionary beliefs. We regret that we could not learn very much about this servant of God but we give here the few facts we did find: He had a brother, Frank, who was a preacher, and a brother-in-law, D. A. Pressley who was a preacher. He lived part of his life in Missouri but spent the last years in Randolph County near Shiloh where he died. He was pastor of Rocky Point Church (Mo.) in 1888. He preached the sermon for State Line Association in 1883, 1886, and 1897 and was elected moderator in 1886. He served as missionary for State Line at one time. He was buried in the Roach Cemetery.
