In the 1920 Jackson County, AL census Henry H. Rochester is shown living with his wife Willie S. (Family bible shows them as Elmer and Willie Jane Garner) Children are Pearlina, Molly E., Willie C., Maimie N., George C., Harley W. (this should have been Harvey) and Lonnie B. (Later children would be named Elmer and Paulina)
Living next door are George W. and Sarah A. Rochester.(Family bible confirms that these are Henry/Elmer's parents) George W. Rochester married Sarah A.M. Loard in Fayette Co, GA 21 Dec 1871.Sarah is the daughter of Jordon Lord and Sarah Lewis.
The family says they are descended from the Rochester who founded Rochester, NY.I'm sure this is true, but I have been unable to verify who George's father is. Also, I would like to know if anyone knows who Sarah Lewis' parents were. Would appreciate any help with George's father.Thanks.
