Family Tree Edit
|William Vanderboom||Aldous Vanderboom||Unknown sibling¹|
|Mary Vanderboom²||James Vanderboom|
|A magical flower³||Emma Vanderboom||Samuel Vanderboom||Ida Vanderboom²||Albert Vanderboom|
|Frank Vanderboom||Leonard Vanderboom||Rose Vanderboom|
1 James Vanderboom is the nephew of William Vanderboom, but his parentage is unspecified. It is possible he is either the son of Aldous Vanderboom or an unnamed third sibling to the brothers.
2 Mary and Ida are only Vanderbooms by marriage but their maiden names are unknown.
3 Frank's father (a flower) is not technically a Vanderboom due to not being married to Emma.
- William most likely has no children of his own, as his nephew James is named as his only heir after his death. This also suggests that William may be older than Aldous, as he was the original owner of the house.
