Welcome to the Boorem family forum.
My name is Jeffrey L. Thomas and I have been researching the Boorem family of Monroe County Pennsylvania for several years. The immigrant patriarch of the family was John Boorem (1771-1810) who settled in Nazareth, Northampton County Pa. in the 1790s. He married Elizabeth Fry (1774-1850). Their son John Boorem (ca.1798-ca.1844) was an early settler of Paradise Valley in Monroe County, Pa. He and his wife Elizabeth Nauman had 11 children, Joseph, Eleanor, Jacob, Sarah, Mary, Susan, John (my ancestor), Francis, Elizabeth, Samuel, and Lydia. Most of these children raised large families of their own and today the family has many descendants spread throughout the country, including teenage movie actress Mika Boorem.
I wrote a genealogy of the Boorem family in 1989 and have updated the book three times since, and I would be happy to share this information with other interested family members and researchers.
I look forward to hearing from you!
