Can somebody please confirm that Mariah Ballenger, born ca 1812, is the daughter of Edward and Charlotte Ballenger of Rush County, Indiana?

Mariah married John Zimmerlee in Rush County in 1832.
Mariah and John named their first child Edward J. Zimmerlee. Since John's ancestry doesn't carry the given name Edward, then I thought it would be after her father, Edward Ballenger.
Also, the 1830 Rush County census shows that Edward Ballenger had three daughters, one of which was 10-15, the other two, 15-20. Mariah would fit one of the girls being 15-20.
Can a Ballenger descendant please provide assistance?
I am a Miller descendant. John Zimmerlee's sister, Annie Zimmerlee, married Jacob Miller..I descend down through the Miller line.
