Some records show her as Mary Alice Rothrock. Mary was the second of eight known children of Martin Rothrock (1814-1878) and Elizabeth A. Rothrock Rothrock (1822-1886), who married 22 Jun 1842 at Edwards County, Illinois. Martin and Elizabeth were second cousins.

Mary married first to George Brown (1825-???) on 20 Nov 1863 at Edwards County, Illinois. Mary and George were the parents of four known children, namely:

1. William Henry Brown (1866-1937)
2. Susan Jane Brown Curtis (1869-1953)
3. Elizabeth Henrietta Brown Knodell (1872-1937)
4. Martin Brown (1877-???)

Did Mary marry a Mr. Byford (name hard to read) after George died? In the 1900 census she seems to be listed as a widow, Mary Byford. After George died Mary remarried to William Fredrick Ahlfeld (1825-1910) on 29 Sep 1906 at Richland County, Illinois. Mary and William did not have any children together.

Links to Mary's parents, her second (or third?) husband, three of her four known children and six of her seven known siblings are included below.
