Roma Family in Portland, Maine originally from Halifax,NS, Canada

Hello. My Grandfather was John Elmer Roma born 13 Mar 1919 in Portland, Maine. His mother was Ethel Jane Stiles Roma originally of Pictou, NS,Canada. She arrived in the US in 1915. She married John Philip Roma soon after. He died in the influenzae outbreak either 1919 or 1920 in South Portland ,Maine. I know that John the father came from a very large family, about 21 children. He had an older sister, Irene who also died of influenzae at the same time. Family Search has him born about 1889. I am looking for any connection to him or his family He doesn't appear in any Census, Canada or US. All I have is his name on my Grandfather's birth certificate and a couple of addresses where he lived in Portland,Maine. No marriage or death certificates. Any help would be appreciated. Susan
