David Allen Roach wrote his diary so that his children "may know something off your ancestors long ago and through it all would say we find them honorable." If he is writing to give his daughters "something of their ancestors", I don't think he "made up" a story about a Littleberry Roach just to mislead them. I'm sure there was a Littleberry somewhere in his ancestery. He may have made mistakes in recording the order of relationships, but why would he have gone to such effort to fantasize the details like "Littleberry was a native of Ireland but emigrated to Virginia from that country because he was not satisfied with the Catholic religion. He was a Baptist minister and by trade a wheelright. The Roaches were of a religious turn of mind, most of them being indentified with the Baptist Church." Would he have made up that story just to mislead his daughters for some reason? I can't believe he did. There was a Littleberry Roach who came to VA. But just how he related to the Roaches of Virginia, I don't know and probably will never know.
"She" may believe it is not true if "She" wants to; but I believe it is in part, at least, true. And because of so many uncertainties, I don't list him as one of my ancestors either.
I reply to this item only so that the readers of the Roach-L list may know another view of the Littleberry Roach matter-----among other views.

No rumor at all. The lady, who was a very careful researcher, doesn't say that "her Henry was the son of Littleberry" but she says she has a copy of the diary of the great grandson of the FIRST Henry in which he says that "HENRY was the son of Littleberry." Then she goes on to say that " there is a SLIM chance that my Henry is the son of John and Sarah" of New Kent County. VA. No proof of error in this. The "first Henry" referred to and her Henry were not the same Henry. The first Henry and John, father of her Henry, were believed to have been brothers.
Family legend is recognized as a valid primary(proof) source of research information by the DAR. Is it not for the rest of us? A diary written by a great grandson of the first Henry Roach in the 1840's would likely be considered a "family legend." Surely it would carry the weight of proof. I would at least give it serious consideration. -----Original Message----- From: email@example.com <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: ROACH-L@rootsweb.com <ROACH-L@rootsweb.com> Date: Friday, December 10, 1999 5:24 PM Subject: Littleberry Roach
I would like some one to show we one piece of evidence that there
fact a Littlberry Roach born before 1700 and came to this county......does any one have a
list, death record, Will ,Baptism record for any of his kids.....anything???
I'm afraid this rumor was started by a lady back in the 1980's that
diary, that says her Henry Roach was son of a LittleBerry Roach, which has proven in
Henry Roach descends from John and Sarah Roach, of New Kent, VA.....Thanks, Sharon
