Parker N Young married Marietta Vroom 24 August 1870

Parker N Young was born 15 October 1840 (according to his Find-A-Grave memorial) in Nova Scotia.  I was not able to find a birth record or parents for him.  I also was not able to find him in any census, US or Canada, until 1870, when as PN Young, he was living in Madison, Ohio, and working as a bridge carpenter.

Marietta Vroom was born 28 November 1847 in Middleton, Nova Scotia, the second of seven children of Jeremiah Vroom and Henrietta Randolph.  Jeremiah took his family to Massachusetts, and in 1860, the lived in Marblehead, where Jeremiah worked as a ship carpenter.  His property was valued at $700. 

Jeremiah moved his family west, and in 1870, they lived in Falls, in Muskingum, Ohio.  Jeremiah was listed as a bridge carpenter.  Perhaps he and Parker worked on projects together. 

Parker Young married Marietta Vroom on 24 August, 1870, in Muskingum county (probably in Falls).  The marriage index does not show addresses, occupations, or parents. 

Parker and Marietta had a son, Joseph B Young, born 27 September 1876.  In 1880, they all lived in Zanesville, OH.  Parker was listed as a carpenter. 

Parker died 13 October 1894 in Falls, at age 54. This record lists him as a farmer, but again, doesn’t name his parents.     

In 1900, Marietta was living with (or at least in the same building with) her widowed brother Daniel Vroom, in Falls.  Her son was with her, employed as a clerk in the railroad shop, but this is the last record I have of him.   This record says that Marietta had two children, one still living.  I hadn’t identified any other children for her until I checked Find-A-Grave.  Looking in the same cemetery as her father – Woodlawn, I found an Alice, born 17 April 1873, died 21 April 1874, daughter of PN and M Young.  Since she was in the same cemetery section as Parker, I’m sure she is Marietta’s daughter.

In 1910, Marietta was living with her younger sister Emeline Vroom  on Dusden  Road in Falls.  This census says that she had four children, only one living.   It appears that they lived in the same place in 1920. 

In 1928, both Emma and Marietta received $500 each as heirs of Elizabeth Oldham.  I don’t know how they were related.

It was hard to find Marietta in the 1930 census.  I try to use filters like age and birth place along with names.  She had been indexed as Mariella Young born in Czechoslovakia living with Emiline Broom.  Ancestry has a way to send corrections or alternate information for the records.  I try to correct as I find them, so that the next person will more easily find their family.

Marietta died 27 March 1934.  Her home address as 1922 Dresden road, occupation housewife, widowed, but no cause of death was listed.  She was buried at Greenwood cemetery in Zanesville.
