I'm descended from Jane Eliza Rooker (b.1831), sister of John Dayton Rooker and sister-in-law of your Mary Elizabeth Kerr Rooker. Jane Eliza Rooker's story is noteworthy: She married physician and surgeon David Wesley Ballard (see Wikipedia) and took the Oregon Trail in 1852 with him, bore him 8 children, he became an Oregon Senator and the 3rd territorial governor of Idaho while handling Indian affairs for 7 years, including establishing reservations for the Shoshone and Bannock tribes. I'm at this for a short time: if I find the information you seek, I'll pass it along ... cousin. ; )
