Thomas Roach 1809 - 1882

Surnames: ROACH EDDINS
I am trying to determine whether the Thomas Roach (1809-1882), who is buried in Pyles Cemetery is the same person, who married Elizabeth M. Eddins on 8/14/1833 in Wilson Co., TN. Elizabeth was b. 5/10/1816 Wilson Co., TN. In 1840 there was only one Thomas Roach listed in the entire TN census index and he was living in ?Wilson Co (age listed 20-30). In 1850 Dyer Co., TN, Thomas Roach, age 41 KY Gunsmith, with wife E.M. age 34 TN, sons: S. D. age 14, M.W. age 12, and J. R. age 10.

1860 Lamar Co., TX Pct. 2
Thomas Roach 42 TN Farmer, wife Elizabeth 44 TN, William 22 TN, Jas Riley 20, Elizabeth McLure 22 TN Domestic, Louisa McLure 16 TN Domestic

On 12/12/1861 Elizabeth McClure married Jas R. Roach in Lamar Co., TX.

1870 Lamar Co., TX Beat 5
Thos Roach 61 KY Farmer, E. M. female 54 TN, R. M. male age 7 TN

1880 Lamar Co., TX 5th Pct.
Thos Roach 71 KY Gunsmith, L. (?) 45 wife TN, Charles 5 TX, Ed 3 TX.

J. R. Roach and S. D. Roach both served in the 29th TX Cavalry. There is a J. R. Roach (1840-1918) buried in Pyles Cemetery as well.

All of this looks like the same family, with Elizabeth dying sometime between 1870-1875. She is not listed in the cemetery records posted online.

I would greatly appreciate any information that pertains to this family, in hopes of proving it is the correct family.
