John H. Roseboom
His father died in 1754 and John H. became head of their second ward household. During the 1760s, "John H. and mother," "John and sister," and Elsje Roseboom were listed as the owners of second ward properties that were accorded substantial assessments.
One of a number of same-named individuals, this John H. Roseboom does not seem to have married and cannot be connected definitively to existing church information for "John Roseboom."
In 1750, he was appointed constable for the second ward. In 1756 and 1763, he was named firemaster for the second ward. In December 1770, he was identified as a baker and was recommended to be "inspector of flour."
For much of the second half of the eighteenth century, imprecise references warn us away from developing this profile further.
