The VROOM Family: LINEAGE CHART                      
 
Orville Corson devoted several chapters to the Vroom family in volume one of "Three Hundred Years with the Corson Families in America".  
Based on his work, the Vroom family is understood to descend from Cors Pietersen,  
and is therefore a branch of what we identify as the Corsons of Staten Island, New Jersey (Division III).  
 
Recent developments, however, call for further research.  
 
The Vroom Lineage Chart that follows is offered as a research tool. Data have been extracted exclusively from Orville Corson's narrative (except as noted).
Please use the chart with caution and discretion because it has not been checked and could contain gross errors.  
All data and identification numbering (using the Henry system) is subject to change.  
Do not incorporate this information into your files for any purpose other than further research.  
 
Those who work with the chart are encouraged to notify Gale Corson of any error, omissions, or other changes they discover.  
 
The lineage chart that begins on page 207, volume 1, of Orville Corson's two-volume book  
Three Hundred Years with the Corson Families in America  
provides data only for the descendants of Captain Cornelis Corssen, eldest son of Cors Pietersen  
"Cornelis Corssen was the first of the family to use the name Corson  
and the only child of Cors Pietersen to leave descendants using the name Corson"  
However, Cors Pietersen is credited with having five children:  
 
  baptised Lineage Chart  
Elsje * 7 Jun 1643  
Cornelis 23 Apr 1645 see p.207  
Grietje * 25 May 1648  
Pieter 5 Mar 1651 Series P  
Hendrick 30 Nov 1653 Series V  
 
* (p.41)  "As no mention is found in the records of the daughters of Cors Pietersen, Elsje and Grietje,  
it may be assumed that they had died before the death of their father in 1655."  
 
Orville's narrative does provide certain information about the families of Pieter and Hendrick,  
summarized in the two lineage charts the follow: Series P and Series V, respectively  
 
Series P:  Lineage chart for Pieter Corssen, the second son of Cors Pietersen and Tryntje Hendricks  
  P1 Pieter Corssen m:(19 Oct 1679) Catherina Van Der Beek [Breuckelen]  
  (p.52) From this we must infer that Pieter Corssen's wife was, at this time (1698), dead,  
  and that he had no surviving children."

  From Orville:  
  "So ends the story, in this work, of Hendrick Corssen and his descendants.  
  It is to be hoped that someone in this family may write a complete history of their descendants."
