I'm not a member of this family, nor am I researching this surname, but I found information on a Hans Rooks in the newspaper "The Hillsboro Argus," March 2, 1911, page 1, col. 2. I think this may help you. It is as follows:
Hans Rooks, of beyond Glencoe, died at St. Vincent's Hospital, Friday, Feb. 24, 1911, after an illness covering several weeks. He was born in North Carolina, 47 years ago, and was one of the early settlers on the ridge. He leaves a brother, J. T. Rooks, residing in upper Vinelands. The funeral took place Sunday, at the Arcade burial ground. Rooks was a bachelor.
