Elizabeth (went by Lizzie) A. Rothrock was the youngest of four known children of Philip Rothrock (1785-1825) and Susannah Hege Rothrock (1800-1822), who married 31 Jan 1814 at Friedberg, Stokes (now Forsyth) County, North Carolina.

Lizzie married her second cousin, Martin Rothrock (1814-1878) on 22 Jun 1842 at Edwards County, Illinois. So both her maiden name and married name was Rothrock. Lizzie and Martin and Lizzie were the parents of eight known children, namely:

1. William Henry Rothrock (1845-1865)
2. Mary Ann Rothrock Brown Ahlfield (1846-1932)
3. Eli Sanford Rothrock (1849-1926)
4. Jonas Rothrock (1851-1937)
5. Sarah Ellen Rothrock Obenchain (1854-1923)
6. Martha L. Rothrock Vanarsdall (1856-1944)
7. Jesse E. Rothrock (1862-???)
8. George Franklin Rothrock (1865-1918)

It is thought that all eight children lived to maturity, though very little is known of the son Jesse E. Rothrock (b. 29 May 1862 at Edwards County, Illinois) who was living with his widowed mother Lizzie, in Edwards County, Illinois in 1880. Was this the Jesse E. Rathrock (sic) (age 67, born Illinois, parents born NC) who was living in a public almshouse at Atlantic County, New Jersey in 1930?
