Rothrock Family

First Generation

Johannes Rothrock was born in 1684 in Leiselheim, near Worms, Germany, son of Michel Rothrock (1639-1702) and his wife Agnes (1643-1701). He married Anna Margaretha, surname unknown. Some treatments of this family have given Anna Margaretha's surname as Krieling, but this appears to be confusion with the wife of their son Johannes. Johannes Sr. immigrated to Pennsylvania in 1736 on the Harle, with his younger children. Anna Margaretha apparently died before he left Germany, as she is not listed on the ship's passenger list; however she does appear in a Leiselheim census of 1730. The two oldest sons, Philip Jacob and Johannes, had immigrated on the pink "Mary" in 1733.

Second Generation

Children of Johannes and Anna Margaretha Rothrock
Philip Jacob Rothrock (1713-1803), m. 1) Catharina Kuntz (1720-1777); 2) Eleanor Galatin, a widow
Johannes Rothrock (1716-1794), m. Maria Krieling (1728-1810), settled Northampton Co. PA (or Bucks Co.?)
Anna Margaretha Rothrock (1718-?), m. Johann Heinrich Schultz, lived York Co. PA
Johann Georg Rothrock (1721-1806), m. Elizabeth Roemig, settled Northampton Co. PA (or Bucks Co.?)
Ludwig Rothrock (1723-1797), m. Catherine ?,
Charitas Rothrock (1727-?), may have died in childhood
Andrew Rothrock (1730-1804)

The two youngest brothers, Ludwig and Andrew, moved from Pennsylvania to Maryland, then to Hampshire Co. VA (now West Virginia). Descendants of both became known as RODRUCK or RODERICK. Some of Ludwig's descendants moved on to Coshocton Co. OH, and as it happens are my husband's ancestors. If you have information to share on this family, please write me, Elizabeth Harris.

RODERICK family DNA project, Family Tree DNA

This project is focusing on Roderick families of Welsh origin, but includes Rothrock and other variant names. As of September 2007, three samples are listed with German origin, one of them a Rothrock, but each DNA profile is distinctive. It would be nice to have a North Carolina Rothrock to compare.

Third Generation

Philip Jacob Rothrock was born in 1713 in Leiselheim, Germany, and immigrated to PA in 1733 on the "Mary" with his brother Johannes. He settled in York Co. PA. He was for a time U.S. Commissioner of Printing and Engraving at Philadelphia, after the Revolutionary War. He made several extended trips to NC, but returned to PA in his old age, and died there in 1803. His first wife, mother of all his children, was Catharina Kuntz, who died in 1777. His second marriage is recorded in York Moravian Church, 1781, to "Elenora Galatin, widow of Manheim."

Fourth Generation

The twins Peter and Philip Rothrock were born in 1746 in Yorktown PA. Both came to North Carolina, as did their younger brother Valentine. Some of the other Rothrock brothers were probably in NC transiently, but so far as we know, these three are the ancestors of the modern Rothrock descendants there.

In 1887 he wrote in his diary, "Wednesday, September 14, 1887: Celebrated Today our Golden Wedding. Many friends were present. Received many golden gifts and congratulations. Brother ADAM came from Oregon to see us." A contemporary account of the celebration states that "the dinner was a sumptuous feast, both in its variety and its delicacies." Details of his ministry are available in the volumes Life Sketches of Lutheran Ministers and American Lutheran Biographies. A collection of of his diaries was published by the Lutheran Church in North Carolina.
