GALLOWAY – Siblings Charles Roesch and Alice Roesch Johnson said they saw a picture in the 2011 Images of America Series book by Joseph Federico, Matthew McHenry that had the identification wrong.

Recently, they read in The Current about an open house at the Galloway Historical Society Museum, part of the Municipal Complex on Jimmie Leeds Road, and they decided to correct the notion that a picture of them was the married couple, Jake and Ethel Roesch.

Jake Roesch died in the 1960s, according to Johnson. His wife died more recently when she was in her 90s.
