"ROBERT ROTHROCK, one of the pioneers of this county, was born in Mifflin County, Pennsylvania, February 19, 1807, and died in White County, Indiana February 17, 1882, a member of long standing in the Christian Church. He came to what is now White County when it was all a wilderness, and entered from the government the land on which Monticello now stands. In the fall of 1832, he married ELIZA MEANS, who died in the fall of the following year, leaving no children. In 1837, he married CATHERINE McKEE, who bore him seven children - ROBERT McK., WILLIAM M., MARY H., ORPAH S., HERVEY P., JOHN A. and JOSEPH T. The mother died August 20, 1855, and in 1856 MR. ROTHROCK married ELIZABETH MOWRER, who has borne him three children, of who two are living - KATE V., now MRS. JOHN R. COWGER, and LIZZIE, now MRS. JAMES WORTHINGTON. JAMES was the second born to this union, but died in infancy. Of the seven children born to MR. R's second marriage, three are married, viz: ROBERT, MARY (MRS. H. W. SANDERSON), and ORPAH (MRS. JAMES L. GOODWIN)."
