Biography

[Profile Manager's Note: There are records under both the Buhrman and Poorman surnames. Source [1] states that Buhrman was the original German spelling of the surname, but that English speaking clerks at the port of entry wrote it as Poorman, leading to widespread use of that spelling in America. Most family members eventually went back to the original spelling. Poorman is the surname inscribed on John's tombstone, however.]

Interred at Mount Bethel Cemetery, Garfield, Frederick County, MD [1].

Tombstone inscription:

JOHN POORMAN, BORN IN GERMANY
CAME TO AMERICA 1767 - DIED SPRING 1826
CATHARINA (ILLEN) MARTIN, HIS WIFE
ANNA, THEIR DAUGHTER, DIED 1809
ALL REINTERRED HERE FROM HOME FARM
ON MANAHAN ROAD NEAR FOXVILLE, MD
THIS MEMORIAL BY THEIR DESCENDANTS
THE BUHRMAN CLAN 1971

[Profile Manager's Note: Source [2] has additional biographical information and states, among other things, that the family farm where John, Catharina, and daughter Anna were originally buried became part of Catoctin Mountain Park in the 1930s. The source credits the information to that researcher's great aunt, Betty Byers Cooper, who developed a notebook of genealogy data.]

Immigrated through the port of Philadelphia on 10 Nov 1767 on the ship Sally.

Introductory text in the applicable List of Arrivals [7]:

"[List 269C] At the Court House, Novemr 10, 1767. "Present: John Gibson, Esquire. "The Foreigners whose names are underwritten, imported in the Ship Sally, Patrick Brown, Master, from Rotterdam, but last from Cowes, did this day take and subscribe the usual Qualifications. 62 whole Freights. 36 in the List. Consign'd to Mr Jno Ross, Mercht. pd 23 Novem. 1767.

"[Entry 30]: Johannes Burman."

[Profile Manager's Note: At the time John came to Philadelphia, arriving male immigrants over the age of 16 were required to take an oath of allegiance to King George the Second of Great Britain and the Province of Pennsylvania. Sources [6] and [7] confirm the immigration data and the information about the oath.]

Date of marriage is an estimate based on John's arrival in the U.S. in 1767 and the birth of John and Catharina's son Henry in 1769.
