Family of Isaac VEAZIE and Lydia KNOWLES

Isaac VEAZIE b. 1806 Nov 5103 at prob Islesboro, ME. d. after 1880100 at prob Corinna, ME.
Lydia KNOWLES b. 1805 Oct 1299 at prob Corinna, ME99. d. 1839 Jul 599 at Corinna, ME99.

Married 1829 Apr 1699 at Corinna, Somerset (now Penobscot), ME99.

It might appear that Isaac married his housekeeper, Sabury E Cole who appears in his household in 1860 as "domestic"; in 1870, Sabrah C Veazie appears in the household with Isaac and Isaac's son Laban, listed as "keeping house." However, in 1880, a Sabra Cole, age 75 and listed as "widowed," is a pauper inmate in the poorhouse run by David Dearborn in Corinna. Unless Isaac had divorced Sabra, it appears that the 1870 enumeration is misleading and Isaac and Sabrah were never married. Lucinda and Mary Ann may have died before 1850 as Lucinda, who would have been age 15, and Mary Ann, who would have been age 12, do not appear in the 1850 census for Corinna. Isaac is listed as a widower in the 1880 census. In any case, Sabrah may be the Miss Sabrah Cowan whose intent to marry Jonathan Cole was published 1824 Jan 26 in Corinna; a Sabra Cowen is also listed in Maine Marriages ( marrying Ichabod Cole in Corinna, 10 Feb 1824.

Child 6. has a listing in "Changes in Name by Special Acts of the Legistlature of Maine, 1820-1895" for: "VEAZIE, Mary Ann, of Corina [sic], ch. surname to Knowles, 1854." Whether that Mary Ann and Mary Ann, the daughter of Isaac and Lydia Knowles Veazie, are the same is not known at this time.
