Father Michael Thomas Roach was born in Mara Township, Ontario, on July 27, 1 872, the son of Thomas Roach and Cecilia McGrath. He died at Toronto, Ontario, on September 27, 1936.

Father Roach began his education in a local school. His parents later moved to Toronto to afford their children the advantages of a Catholic education. He entered St. Michael's College in 1889 and six years later went to St. Basil's Novitiate, Toronto, where he was received as a novice on September 9, 1895.

After first profession he continued his studies at St. Michael's College, 1896-98; Assumption College in Windsor, Ontario, 1899-1900; and St. Basil's Seminary in Toronto, 1898-19 and 1900-01. He was ordained priest on July 28, 1901.

After ordination Father Thomas Roach taught mathematics at St. Michael's College until 1907 when he was sent to Kalamazoo, Michigan, to open Gibbons Hall. Two years later the Congregation withdrew from this high school and Father Roach was appointed to St. Thomas High School in Houston, Texas. When the Congregation took over the direction of St. Thomas College, Chatham, New Brunswick in 1910 he was sent there as treasurer. Four years later he went to St. Basil's College in Waco, Texas. When this institution was closed in 1915 he was appointed to Assumption College. In 1916 he was named pastor of St. Mary's of the Assumption Parish in Owen Sound, Ontario. After nine fruitful years there he moved to Assumption Parish, Windsor, as assistant. He was treasurer of St. Basil's Novitiate in 192728, then in 1928 received his last appointment, to St. Anne's Parish in Detroit, Michigan. In 1933 he was found to be suffering from diabetes and at the time of his death in 1936 was being treated in Toronto for cancer. He was buried in the Basilian plot, Mount Hope Cemetery, Toronto.

Father "Tom" Roach was a good financial man who served as treasurer in every house to which he was appointed. The partiality he had for concrete floors, walks, verandas were expressive of his physique and personality -- rugged, strong, enduring. In his younger days he was a fine athlete. The Basilian Centennial Volume, St. Mary's of the Assumption Parish noted his continuing love for the outdoors, "Father Roach still maintained an enthusiasm for outdoor life, especially hunting. Year after year he took his holidays during the deer season, and usually brought back a supply of venison."

In parish work, Father Roach was a wonderful preacher whose sermons were filled with practical advice suited to the needs of his congregation. He was tremendously popular with country people. In Owen Sound he published the Golden Jubilee Volume of 1921.

From an email from Dan on 11 Oct 2005 : . By 1885 William P. Corrigan, who had married Suzanne Boyle, in Mara was also in Dakota Territory. William and Suzanne settled a few miles away from Cornelius Boyle and Thomas McGrath. This Corrigan family located in Springer Township, Ransom County, Dakota Territory. They lived there from about 1883 until after 1903. (In 1889 Dakota Territory was divided into the states of North Dakota and South Dakota. Ransom county is in North Dakota.) Some of their children are buried in the Catholic cemetery in Lisbon, North Dakota. (Suzanne's sister, Elizabeth also came out to Dakota. She married Patrick Falvey and lived out her life in Dakota.) William and Suzanne moved to British Columbia (according to her father's 1914 will.) I believe they eventually moved to Oregon and died there in Clackmas County.

from an email from Dan on 12 Oct 2005 : I checked a few references on the William P. Corrigan experience in Dakota. He filed his first papers for naturalization (citizenship) in Lisbon, Dakota Territory on July, 5, 1884. He got a patent on government land (160 acres in section 28 of Springer Township, Ransom County, now North Dakota on Jan. 30, 1891. Usually the patent came five years after first settlement on the land.

INCH, Jean Alexander (nee Crowther) R N - It is with profound sadness that our family announces the peaceful passing of our beloved mom and grandma, Jean Inch. Mom was born in Shawinigan Falls to Sara Alexander and Cole Crowther. Beloved sister of Nora Kitchen, Willard and David Crowther all predeceased, and Heather Dupuis. Wife of the late Ben Inch. Mother of Barbara predeceased and Dr. John Weatherston, Michael and Jackie Inch, Penny and Ron Wood, and Suzanne Huften.

She was looking forward to three great grandchildren who are due within three months. Grandma was very proud that she served in the Navy in WWII from 1944-1946 as a WREN. In spite of her service, she was never recognized as a veteran. She recently celebrated 60 years as a graduate of OSMH and was always actively involved in the nurse's alumni. She was a lifetime member of St. Paul's United Church, and actively involved in the UCW. She was a keen card player, and played with the same bridge group for over 50 years. The friendships she shared with the “bridge girls“ were very dear to her. She was the best mom and grandma that a family could ever dream of having. Our memories will be a comforting part of our lives forever. We'll miss you G-ma! As per mum's wishes, cremation has taken place. The family asks that you join them in “Celebration of her life“ at the Leacock Care Center, 25 Museum Drive, in Orillia from 1-3 p.m. on Saturday, June 26th, 2010.
