Simon, son of Jan Vrooman and Geesie Veeder, married Eytje, daughter of Jacob Delamont.

In 1710 he bought of Willem Appel for 48 pounds [$120], the lot lying on the west side of the canal extending from State to Liberty streets, now the property of the estate of Peter Rowe. This lot originally had a front on State street extending from the lot of Samuel Myers to that of Robert Ellis, the larger portion of which is now occupied by the canal.

From his father he inherited a parcel of land bounded by Jefferson and Pine streets now in the occupation of the Schenectady elevator company, and Messrs. Vedder and Van Voast.

By his will made in 1752, his son Jacob inherited his house and lot above mentioned, and his son Johannes the "tan pits" near the Church mill on Mill lane.
