States: Kentucky: Letcher
Looking for any info on William Allen Roach, born Feb. 1861, marriage certificate states; Lester Co. Ky. As his place of birth. As there is no "Lester Co." in Ky. maybe, as he had signed his "marriage Licenes" with an "X" that he was unable to read/write. as " Lester" may have been mistaken for "Letcher Co." This was my great-grandfather, parents, brothers and sisters unknown. He did marry a "Mary" last name unknown in Portsmouth, Oh. date unknown. Then moved to Illinois where "Mary" died and he married the 2nd. time to Anna Cook (my g. grandmother) in Iroquois Co.Ill. in 1906. When Anna died he married for a 3rd. time abt. 1921 to Ruth Beavins, Milford, Ill. William Roach died in Watseka, Ill. 1931.
He did have several children from his first marriage, and one child from his second marriage (my grandmothr)Nellie Cook Rader.Anyone with any info would be greatly appreciated.
