Jordan Groman, Quakertown Jitney Driver
Posted by: Robert B. Croman Date: January 31, 2001 at 14:34:39
  of 2288

Can anyone give me more details about Jordan C. Groman. Here is what I have so far. I have his death certificate which says he was born Nov. 19, 1872 in Pennsburg, Montgomery Co to Wm. (very difficult to read) Groman and Sarah (can't make out the last name). He died in Quakertown, Bucks Co. Feb 15, 1926. His occupation is listed as Jitney Driver (so he may have been a bus driver on the Levi Transit from Trumbauersville to Quakertown to Richlandtown). In the 1880 census he is listed living in the household of David Beiler (age 66) and Sophia Beiler (age 67) in Milford Twp. However his relationship (he was 8 years old then) is not given. Were David and Sophia Beiler his maternal grandparents?
Jordan died of Pneumonia and left a widow but her name is not given except as Mrs. Jordan C. Groman. He was buried from Treffinger's in Quakertown and is probably buried in Union Cemetery. He did leave a Will which was filed in Doylestown in 1926.
I suspect that William his father is one of the following: 1) the grandson of George Grohmann of Milford Twp. 2) The orphan of Conrad Croman of Richland Twp or 3) William the orphan of Michael Jr. of Richland Twp. I am most interested in nailing this down. The fact that Jordan was born in Pennsburg suggests that he is part of the Milford Groman's given that William Groman the son of George Grohmann and Elis. Pfaff eventually ended up in Pennsburg and did have a son by the name of William born in 1843. But then also William the son of Conrad Croman ended up being buried in Old Goshenhoppen Church over in Woxall. And to make matters worse neither of them seems to have had a wife named Sarah. The wife of William son of Conrad was Malara Roshong. The wife of William grandson of George and Eliz Grohmann appears to have been Maria ? with children Cora and Harrison.
Again any help would be appreciated.
