Family of Frederick Melvin VEAZIE and Alice NORMAN
Married77 c. 1880261. GSV Chart - ch Alice, George S.
Alice NORMAN b. 1854~3003. d. 1889 Apr~3003 at Elmira?, NY3003. bd. Caton, NY3003.
Melvin is listed as single190 in 1880 and a widower193 in 1900. He was married sometime after June 1880 to Alice Norman, with whom he had two children: Alice and George. Wife Alice died3003 in April, 1889, at the age of 35 years. Daughter Alice died ~1890. Son George lived in the Elmira area, and was an architect. Melvin lived with his parents early in his life. In 1870, he is listed in Oil Creek, Pennsylvania, residing with his sister Eva (Veazie) Cram and Eva's husband Henry. Both men were engaged as "oil miners." By 1880, Melvin had returned to Caton and resided with his parents, now a machinist. Still in Caton in 1900, residing with his mother and his son George, Melvin had married, his wife Alice had died, and he was then a day laborer. In 1910, he resided in Elmira with son George and was a house painter. He boarded in Elmira with Fred and Anna Knapp, in 1920 as a factory foreman, and in 1930, age 78, no occupation listed.
A genealogical chart77 prepared by George S Veazie, the son of Melvin and Alice Norman Veazie, lists Alice Norman as his mother. That chart lists her death date as 1890. However, she apparently died3003 in mid-April of 1889. The Corning Journal, Apr 25, 1889 reports: "The Elmira Star mentions the death of Alice Norman, wife of F. M. Veazie, aged thirty-five. She leaves a son. The burial was at Caton." Her birthplace is listed variously as New York193, Pennsylvania207 and Virginia261.
As no records regarding Alice Norman's parentage have, at this time, been found, the most likely candidates for her parents, based solely on Alice's birth year3003 calcluated from her date at death, and guessing that Alice lived in the Steuben county area prior to her marriage to Melvin Veazie, are George M Norman and Amanda C Knott. Alice (AKA "Allace') appears with George and Amanda/Maude Norman in 1860 (Big Flats, Chemung Co.), and 1870 and 1880 in Elmira. Amanda's maiden name is assumed from the 1880 census, Elmira, in which Robert H Knott, brother-in-law, is listed in the household. An 1850 census for Elmira lists Amanda and Robert Knott (of appropriate ages to match mentioned census records) in the household of Alvin and Sabiney Knott.
Child 1. Alice
The genealogical chart77 prepared by George S Veazie lists Alice Veazie, daughter of Melvin and Alice Veazie, born 1880, died 1890. It's likely that Alice was born a bit later than 1880 as father Melvin Veazie was listed as single in the 1880 census (Caton, NY) enumerated June 12.
Child 2. George
George was an architect (Ingham-Veazie, Architects) and lived in Steuben County his whole life. He never married.
