Jim, do you have a Daniel ROOF in this family? My Grandmother's best friend was Kittie Carson (ROOF) BROOKS, b. 24 May 1877 (Nevada, I think), d. 4 Jan 1961 in Jackson Co., MO. Her parents were Daniel ROOF - d. 8 July 1911 and Lucy ____? - d. 23 May 1911, both in Jackson Co., MO. I don't know birth dates on the parents, but mid 1800's, I'm sure. Kittie had one cousin who lived in Logansport, Cass Co., IN in the early 1900's. Kittie had no children of her own, so our family was her family in her later years. Her Dad was supposedly a friend of Kit Carson, for whom Kittie was named. Would love to know more about her ancestry. Thanks!
