I recently went to a family reunion on my mothers side and it made me realize how little I new about my fathers side of the family. If anyone has or knows about the Roche family from Jacmel, Haiti I would appreciate any information.

My grandfather was Christian Roche b.March 27, 1902 (Jacmel); d.April 19, 1969 (NY, USA). His father's name is George Roche and his mother is Celuta Busquet (or possibly Busket).

My grandmother was Carmie Dabady b.July 24, 1908 (Jacmel); d.October 5, 1993 (NY, USA). Her father's name is Cuvier Dabady and her mother is Celia Naar.

This is all the information I have on them.

I am new at this so any information would be very much appreciated. I have information on my mother's side which I will be happy to share. The surnames I have on my mother's side are de Madet, Pomie, Pradel, Lindor, Noel, De la Tour, Bertoni, Allien.

I am also looking for any information on my maternal grandfather Theophile Felix de Madet, gr. grandfather Massillon Pomie, and gr. grandmother Emilie Clesca.

Thank you in advance for your help.
