     Melissa Vrooman was born on 29 September 1837.1 She was the daughter of Admiral Nelson Vrooman and Rachel Coleman.1 She married James Campbell on 27 July 1859 at Probably Harrisburg, Brant County, Ontario. (notes: Brant County Marriage Register:

James Campbell, 24, Montreal, Lancaster CE, s/o Arthur, married 27 July 1859 Melissa Vrooman, 22, S. Dumfries, d/o Admiral Nelson and Rachel Vrooman).1
Here is Melissa and James marriage record:

(Fraser and Unger are witnesses.)

I have not been able to find James or Melissa in the 1881 census, the1901 census, nor in various census years in the U.S.A.
With this one piece of information, they seem to drop off the map.1
