John S Conroy, Sr. was a self-made man who evolved from being a crane driver to successfully owning and operating a popular corner bar at 200 E. Broad St. in Burlington, N.J. He accomplished this by purchasing a small hotel for his growing family (who lived on the second floor of the hotel) This bar later became a drug store during the years of prohibition, and James Conroy, his son, was the pharmacist who filled the prescriptions for the majority of the families in Burlington, and his other son, John S Conroy Jr. was a prominent and popular family doctor in the community who delivered the majority of the children born in that time period.
John Sr. also owned a working farm in Glouscester, N.J. and also owned many rental properties in Burlington City. He was a very proud, persevering man and a successful leader and task master who inspired his children.
John Sr. and Elizabeth had 11 children, (several died before the age of 2 from diptheria.) I recall my mother's stories of the older boy's antics when they were growing up and remembering them always makes me smile.
Elizabeth was a devoted and loving mother who worked ceaselessly to take care of her family's needs. She enjoyed needlework, especially tatting, and was an excellent cook who excelled at canning and making homemade jams and jellies for her family. In her later life, Emma Jones became their live-in housekeeper and cook, and remained with the family until it was necessary for her to go to a nursing home, when she became too ill to live at home.
