Looking for info on Rock family:
Louis Rock born February 1867 in Waldwick, Germany d. 1948 m. Nettie L. (Cox) Gordon was born August 24, 1877 in Noble County, Minnesota d. August 05, 1908 - m. 1894.

It is said that he second m. Lillie Long; she died in 1948.

Louis and Nettie had 3 chn:
i.       Christian ‘Chris’ William Rock born December 18, 1895 in Elmer Twp, Pipestone County, Minnesota and died May 16, 1976 m. Anna W. Sindt born April 09, 1896 in Minnesota
died March 01, 1984 - m. March 31, 1920.
ii.       Elsie L. Rock born November 1896 in Minnesota; married first Grant Flakne born August 06, 1893 and died December 1966 at about age 73 years in Carrollton, Carroll County, Missouri – they had 5 children.
Elsie second married Fred Henning born 1883 and died 1955.
Elsie third married Ed Brockmeier born 1886 and died 1963.
iii.       Marvel Ella Rock born March 11, 1899 and died May 17, 1982 m. Lester James Gilliland born February 26, 1898 in Minnesota and died January 13, 1983. They had 2 children.

In 1930 Louis lived with his widowed sister, Maggie Molitor, and her son John.

Wondering who the parents of Louis Rock were. Some say Mattias ‘Matthew’ Rock born about 1829; he married Anna born about 1834 – both born in Germany.

Any further help with this family is appreciated,
