I came across this posting and another page of yours at this address
In fact Josiah B. Vrooman/Vroman and wife Susannah died and are buried in Waukesha County, Wisconsin at LaBelle Cemetery. The DAR listing which is quite antiquated was done years ago and is incorrect. (OR there were 2 Josiah B. Vrooman's with a wife named Susannah. In any case, that particular Susannah unknown Meyer is buried in Wisconsin) Does your Coon line have any relationship to Asa Coon born early 1800's and died about 1835 in Potter Co PA. His wife Julia Ann Reed then married a John Monroe - John dying in MN and Julia Ann in WI.

Thanks so much for your update and correction. I always try to source my work so I can verify it.

I also found the correct burial information when I was able to obtain the book, Josiah B Vrooman (Vroman): His Ancestors and Descendants by Randall and Houghton.

I have not found any connection between my Coon families and Asa Coon.

Do you have a connection to the Vroman family?

My mother was Veora Caroline Vroman dau of William Henry Vroman, Josiah B's great grand son (Veora, William Henry, James Myers, Henry, Josiah B. I later found some postings of your work and see that you have the corrections. Some of the DAR work early on was wrong but with the repetition of names, it's no surprise. Diana
