I think Benjamin Roach may have been born in 1852 TN. The family believes that he was a physician. There's a family legend that he was kidnapped, taken blindfolded and forced to treat Jesse James who had been shot. I can't find any verification of this.
Ben married Jessie Jones (Abner's daughter) on 24 Apr 1893 in Medina, TX. Ben and Jessie had 6 children that I know of: Kyle, John, Benjamin, Nita, Abbie, and Elsie.
He was married previously, but I do not know his 1st wife's name. They had 2 children: Lavelle and Horace.
The family legends are that Abner immigrated from Wales. He was born about 1850. (note that he was only 2 years older than his son-in-law, Ben.
That's about all I know.
