      Have you checked old court records for Tarrant Co, TX with your dad's name?

      (Jean Roach)

      You can go online and check property records through the assessor's office, check the voter registration records, and check district court records.  Also check prison databases like or

      If he has had any child support orders or liens there will be records.  Same with traffic tickets.

      Do you know what line of business he might have been in?  Check with unions. 

      Good luck.  There are some Thomas Roach names on the assessor site.  I just checked.

      One other thing---find out if the County Sheriff will do a background check for you on his name.  It might cost about $10 and usually is done in a week.
