Rothrocks in Germany

The Rothrocks originated in a village called Leiselheim, which is located near Worms, Germany. Johannes Rothrock who immigrated in 1736 is the ancestor of most American Rothrocks. Another Rothrock, Johann Peter Rothrock who immigranted in 1767, also has US descendants. The Rothrocks who stayed in Germany were descended from Johann Valtin Rothrock born in 1628. One of Johann Valtin Rothrocks descendants, Freidel Rothrock 1902-1986 lived in the Rothrock house built in 1729 with a wine cellar that was built in 1728. Here is one of Freidel's wine labels and a photo of the house and the emblem on the door.
