My great grandmother was Maria Anna Vroom (1855-1934) she married Henry David Smith (1848-1918) on staten Island. Maria's mother was Elizabeth Taylor (the niece of Pres. Zachary Taylor) who Married George Vroom. I am not positive his name was George, but could this be the SAME George b. 1823? AND, I have record that George's parents were Christopher (?) Vroom and Maria who may have died in 1879. Do you think this is the same family? I hope so! It would be a huge breakthrough for me.
I remember grandpa mentioning a George Washington Vroom. Not sure the relation, but it could be his grandfather (grandpa died in 1984 so I do not remember what he said).
All the information matches..
George (?) and Elizabeth Taylor Vroom's children are as follows:
Maria (pronouced Mariah) Lenorab. 1857 Lyde b. 1861 Washington b. 1864 (M. Addie ?) Helen Amanda b. 1866 Ida Emily b. 1869 boy vroom who died at age 7.
Do you have additional information on this line of the Vrooms?? Let me know if you do. Robert Hoadley (firstname.lastname@example.org
