This is My Story

John Oram has 12 siblings; 5 brothers and 6 sisters. Once the Oram family settled in Detroit John took on several different jobs; varying from selling 8-track and cassette tapes, Big Boys, purchasing his own family liquor store that he spent 12hrs/day at for 7 days/week and for Chrysler. He also swept floors at a local car dealership on Woodward Avenue in Ferndale where he said one day he would own the building.
