    • Rudolph Rorer and Elizabeth Rorer, twins, were born in 1797 on Sunday, 8th day of October, under
      the planet LUNA. He apparently owned slaves. In the Pittsylvania County, VA death records there is a record of a slave named Eliza Rorer, owned by Rudolph, who died of cancer at age 39 in June 1861. Rorer's Harpen Creek Mill Rudolph Rorer received title to this forty-one acres as a gift. The Rorers were millers and Abraham Sr. and Abraham Jr. both owned sawmills in the county. The elder was a son-in-law of Harmon Cook, who owned at least two mills. Cook built one of these on Tomahawk Creek, and the other he bought from George Jefferson on Turkey Cock Creek.
