     Carrie Vrooman was born on 8 July 1869 at Harrisburg, Brant County, Ontario.1 She was the daughter of George W. Vrooman and Ruth Smith.1 She married Leslie Edward Woodsend on 16 June 1892 at Brantford, Brant County, Ontario.1 She married Richard Bunting in 1915.1 1503-92 Leslie E. WOODSEND, 24, merchant, Galt Ont., Norfolk VirginiaUSA, s/o Charles & Maria, married Carrie VROOMAN, 22, Harrisburg Ont., same, d/o George & Ruth, witn: Mrs. MOIR of Brantford, 16 June 1892at Brantford

Leslie goes by Edward in the 1900 census taken at Washington Twp., inNorfolk, Virginia. I have taken the birth years from this census. Charles is with them in this census. Edward is said to be a machinist. Iwonder if a careful examination of the marriage registration would say that he was a machinist rather than a merchant?

It appears that Leslie and Carrie parted. In the 1910 census, Leslie is in Denver and claims to be single. Carrie is still in Norfolk with her son Charles, who is 16. She has taken lodgers. She says she is married, but also that she is head of the house. By 1920, she is married to Richard Bunting of Norfolk Virginia and Charles Woodsend is listed as stepson. She and Richard are still married at the time of the 1930 census and still in Norfolk. Leslie appears to be in California by the1930 census and remarried. I haven't found Charles in the 1930 census.

The year that Carrie emigrated to the U.S. appears to 1892, the year of her marriage. The writing on this point isn't too legible.

The marriage year that I have entered for Carrie and Richard is taken to force Family Tree Maker to enter Carrie's husbands in the correct order. Given that the information will be in Virginia's vital statistics, I won't likely find the correct year.1
