Wayne County, NY Biographies





Vrooman, W. R., D.D.S., was born in Dixon, Ill., December 5, 1858, where his father, S. A. Vrooman, was engaged in the mercantile business. He is a direct descendant of the old Knickerbocker stock, amongst whom were the several Vrooman brothers who came from Holland to the United States and settled in the Mohawk Valley about 1760. At an early age he removed to Canada where he was educated at St Catharine's Collegiate Institute and Toronto University; and, graduating from Toronto Normal School, taught for a number of years in Ontario successfully, also a graduate of the Dental Department of Toronto University, member of the Royal College of Dental Surgeons and honor graduate of the Pennsylvania College Dental Surgery, receiving the honors of his class of 300 members. In 1888 he came to Clyde and established himself in his profession in which he is actively engaged. At the age of thirty two he married Jessie B., daughter of the late Hon. J. S. L'Amoreaux, of Clyde. They are the parents of one daughter, Marjorie Roselle. Thoroughly scientific in his attainments, he employs nothing but the latest and most scientific methods in his profession. A close student and lover of science, he is now pursuing a course of medical studies in Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia, from which institution he expects to graduate at an early date. He is prominently identified with the Masonic order, being a member of Clyde Lodge, F. & A. M., Griswold Chapter, R. A. M., and Zenobia Commandery Knights Templar of Palmyra. N. Y.
