Harry Vrooman and Nettie Bement married on 2 March, 1892, at Toledo, Lucas Co., Ohio.
Some sources show Nettie's name as Benoit, but the evidence contradicts this.

The 1870 US census, shows the Bement family in Genesee Township, Genesee County, Michigan. They are all shown as being born in Vermont. Nettie is age 1 and her parents are shown as James H. Bement, age 23, a merchant. Her mother is Ella, age 21. Also present is an older sister, Hattie, age 3.
Nettie's place of birth is shown as Vermont per the 1910 census taken at Detroit on the 23rd of April on page 53A.
By the 1920 census taken at Detroit, page 154A, Nettie's husband isn't present. The writing for her status is difficult, but it looks as though she is divorced at this point. She has quite a housefull of lodgers. Their name is written as Vroman, and it's obvious that this is the same woman, for her birthplace is given as Vermont. Her son is present, listed as H. Vroman and her daughter and son-in-law are present. They are shown as Eloise and Fred Platz. She is 20 and he 21. They were both born in Michigan.
