I believe Arch died in Oklahoma, maybe Grady Co. where the family was living in 1930. Oklahoma doesn't publish their vital record dates which makes finding info more difficult. I looked through the indexed cemeteries and obituaries online, but didn't find him.
There was a Less Roach died June 9, 1930 and buried in Rose Hill Cemetery. I did notice on one family tree that his name was listed as L Archer Roach. Maybe him?
There was a Roach buried in the same cemetery with no first name listed. That person died May/June 1937 with the burial 1 June, block 12, lot 13 with a T. W. Roach b. 29 Dec 1851 and d. 30 May 1910.
You can request a copy of his death certificate from Oklahoma State Dept. Health, www.ok.gov/health/Birth_and_Death_Certificates/ but they have restrictions.
