Danish Roche in India

Found this site on the Landmark Family Genealogy.

It lists an Antonette Augusta de Créqui la Roche whose 2nd husband Claus Voigt died 1701-05 at Trankebar, India. That was probably Tranquebar. Her first husband was Lambert Dideriksen.

I wonder if Claus worked for the Danish East India Company - which was founded in 1616 and was dissolved in 1669 ... now wait a minute, maybe not since he dies 30 years later ... anyway you could read more on the Danish East India Company online.

Here are some of the other Roche mentioned on this site:
