Larry, it never occurred to me that the third possibility regarding Rochester might be an Englishman with no connection to the Kentucky Churchills. Randolph Churchill, Lord Randolph, was of the Duke of Marlborough family of English Churchills. He and Jennie Jerome were the parents of English Prime Minister Winston Churchill. There is no connection between Randolph Churchill and the Kentucky Churchills. Indeed, although many American Churchills have incorrectly tried to claim a connection with the Winston Churchills, if there was a common ancestor it was in England several centuries ago.
