     George W. Vrooman was born on 24 May 1846 at Harrisburg, Brant County, Ontario.1 He was the son of Admiral Nelson Vrooman and Rachel Coleman.1 He married Ruth Smith on 9 October 1862 at Brant County, Ontario. (notes: The marriage record reads: Vrooman, George, 19, Harrisburgh, Canada, s/o Nelson and Rachel, m. 9 Oct. 1862. Ruth Smith, 21, Ancaster, Canada d/o Mathias and Elizabeth.

The record does not state the place of marriage, but does appear in the Brant County marriage records.
See MS248 reel 5.).1
George and Ruth appear in the 1881 census at South Dumfries, Brant County. George is said to be a farmer. Children Frank, Carrie, Charles and Josephine are with them. George and Ruth do not appear in the 1901 census, nor can I find them in U.S. census years.

It should be mentioned that there is a problem with the transcriptionof a census district for South Dumfries. The transcriber of the online transcription has confused the abbreviation for Ontario with that of Quebec. The show the family as being from Quebec, and nearly every other family in the census district. This is incorrect.
