Roche Family County Mayo
« on: Friday 18 May 18 22:21 BST (UK) »
I am looking for information regarding relatives of my grandmother, Norah Roche. She was born in 1893 in County Mayo. According to the 1901 and 1911 Census, she lived at Knockatober, Caraum in Mayo before immigrating to the US. According to census records, her father was John Roche and her mother was Mary Roche. Her siblings were:
Maggie Roche
Lizzie Roche
Thomas Roche
Patt Roche
John Roche
Sarah Roche
She had another sibling, Helen Roche, who lived with her when she immigrated to Savannah, GA and died before my father was born.

Any information regarding the history of the family in Mayo would be appreciated.  My grandmother died when my father was young and very little is known of her family in Mayo.  I will be in Ireland in a week and hope to meet with someone familiar with the family to get updates on what became of of my aunts and uncles who I believe remained in Ireland.
