DESPERATE to find someone!

We are looking for ANY information on a John Roth. He owned 160 acres of land at Sadie. He died about 1890. He was a veteran from the Civil War and was wounded in the right leg. If you know of any Roth's in the area, I would like to contact them to see if they are related. We have DNA to compare.
Thanks for the help.

There are Roth in Glendive and in Williston that I know of.I will not give out the first names of the people I know but I am sure it gives you someplace to look.I am just chuckling here.Was your Roth an upstanding citizen or a scoundrel and a horse thief.Follow my lead and you are going to find some of each.I do not know the lineage but the ones I know are pretty intelligent and talented.You know intelligent and talented like an upstanding citizen or intelligent and talented like a scoundrel and horse thief.

He may be both!!! I found reference to him in the paper receiving money from the Chamber as a janitor until 15 dec 1893. I also found where he and Martha J Patterson were licensed to be wed on 9 dec 1887 in Miles City. Please keep looking!!!

The reason you have had trouble locating John Roth's death date in Montana is because he did not die in Montana...he died in Massachusetts in 1943.
