Jane has apparently hit the nail on the head. Eli Sanford Rothrock was a
Church of the Brethren minister and Elder. Elder Michael Forney's wife was
Rachel Horner who was a sister of Sally Horner Beeghly. The plot thickens.
Michael was a son of John Forney and Susanna Beeghly. Sally's husband
Josiah Beeghly was a s/o Michael Keagy Beeghly & Margaret Arnold and
grandson of Joseph Beeghly & Mary Keagy. Joseph and Susanna were brother
and sister of Michael Beeghly Jr. who wed Susanna Kimmel.
