About Elizabeth (Stanford) Rook (c.1760-c.1797)

Elizabeth Stanford (a) was born around 1760 in Maryland, daughter of Jonathan Stanford (born 1720, died before 1792) and Elender Stanford (born 1725, died after 1792).

Around 1775, she married Hezekiah Rook in Worcester County, Maryland. They had 6 children born into the Rook family including Aaron (circa 1775), James (circa 1779), Elizabeth Katherine (circa 1780), Hezekiah, Jr. (circa 1882), Jonathan (1785) and Levin Lewis Rook (1793).

Soon after 1783 (b), the Rook family moved to Chatham County, North Carolina.

Around 1797, Elizabeth (Stanford) Rook died in Chatham County, North Carolina.

Footnotes: (a) Research has led to some confusion whether Jonathan and Elender had a daughter named Mary Elizabeth or 2 daughters named Mary and Elizabeth. Records, location and dates seem to support the existence of 2 daughters, though it is not for certain.
