I believe you will find that Ellen Maria Riker was the d/o Henry Riker and Rachel Van Houten. They were married in 1807 in NJ. I don't have a source in front of me so you will have to find it on your own :-)

Rachel was the d/o John Van Houten and Ann/Hannah Roome according to http://www.familysearch.org/

You will find that the Van Houten side eventually goes back to my POST family of NJ (Capt. Adriaen Post who m Clara Moockers, was in Recife Brazil pre 1654, then New Amsterdam which is now NY City, then NJ)

For details and sources see http://olivetreegenealogy.com/nn/surnames/post.shtml

I think you should subscribe to my New Netherland mailing list on Rootsweb, and post a query for ancestors of Henry Riker and Rachel Van Houten.

This list is for historical and genealogical discussion of New Netherland Colony. The first European settlements in the States of Connecticut, Delaware, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania were built by the Dutch beginning in 1624 and formed the Dutch colony of New Netherland, or Nieuw Nederlandt. New Netherland was settled in 1624 by the Dutch but was a multi-cultural colony. Anyone with an interest in,or ancestors from, New Netherland is welcome. See http://olivetreegenealogy.com/nn/nnmail.shtml

You can make contacts with others, and have the help of very knowledgeable people on this list.

I can't help you with Alexander Peer, as I don't have my files with me.

Be sure to also see my section on New Netherland surnames at http://olivetreegenealogy.com/nn/surnames/

You should also read "The Descendants of Peter Willemse Roome" for your Roome ancestors and "Descendants of Roelof Van Houten" for your Van Houten.
