County Cork, Ireland
|Death: ||Nov. 12, 1867|
Wife of Edward
Catherine COLLINS was born about 1793 in in Ballyhooly, County Cork, Ireland. She married Edmond DeROCHE, Jr. (born in 1790 in Cork, County Cork, Ireland; died 1850 in Iowa; the son of Edmond DeROCHE, Sr. and Mary (CONNELL) DeROCHE). At some point in time Edmond, Jr. changed his surname from DeROCHE to ROACH. It is somewhat likely that this action took place when he arrived with his family in the USA on July 8, 1850. The date of Catherine's marriage to Edmond is unknown but presumably was about 1820 since their oldest child was born in 1822.
There were 5 children born from this marriage, presumably all born in Ireland: Michael ROACH (1822-unknown), Thomas ROACH (1823-1903), Patrick ROACH (1828-1908, Ellen ROACH (1834-1921), and Catherine ROACH (1840-unknown).
Catherine (the elder) died on November 12, 1867 in Mount Pleasant, Henry County, Iowa at the age of 74.
NOTE: Irishtown Cemetery, where Catherine is buried, is also known by the alternative names of Woodlawn and Old Catholic.
