ROCHE family from parish of ABBEYKNOCKMOY, Galway

My ROCHE family have been living in FEAGH, MOYNE since the early 1800s and maybe before that.

FEAGH is in the parish of ABBEYKNOCKMOY or ABBEY for short.

My Grandfather JOHN had a sister KATE that married a Pat COEN and stayed in Galway.

There were another 4 ROCHE siblings that emigrated to New York between 1903 and 1910 - I have no idea what happened to them after that.

Their names were MARY, PATRICK, MARTIN and DELIA.

There was also a cousin DELIA that emigrated to New York in 1915.

The first one to emigrate was MARY in 1903, she was travelling with her cousins the MULLIN/S family - and they were going to another cousin Michael MULLIN/S in New York.

The MULLIN/S family were from TUAM but I don't know the family connection.

If they were first cousins then it is likely a sister of my g-grandfather BRIAN married a MULLIN/S from TUAM.

My g-grandfather married a Kate QUINN in 1880, who I think was from BALLYNAKILLA in ABBEYKNOCKMOY.

My grandfather married an Ellen WILLIAMS from FEAGH in 1910.
