Family of Leonard A CROSSE and Mary Etta VEAZIE
Leonard A CROSSE
Mary Etta VEAZIE b. 1908~593 at New Jersey593.
The 1930 census595 lists Maryetta Veazie with son Gayne Veazie in the household of her parents Wildes and Mary (Morgan) Veazie. In 1940, Maryetta Lakin (wife of George Lakin) is listed with son Gayne, stepson to George Lakin.
Leonard's marriage to Maryetta Veazie is inferred as follows: the Oregon DAR roster of ancestors1736 lists Mary Morgan Beazie [sic], wife of Wildes W, as a descendant of Thomas Herrick Cole. Under Mary's listing is "Mayreta Veazie Crosse (L. A.)" A general search for L A Crosse results in a Portland, OR, city directory entry1735 for Leonard A Crosse, wife Mayreta. From this it is assumed that Maryetta married Leonard A Crosse prior to 1930 and they had a son William Gayne Veazie. Perhaps following a divorce, Maryetta kept the name Veazie for herself and her son.
Mayreta is listed variously in references as Mary E, Marietta, May E, Mayreta and Maryetta. Her mother's obituary2984 mentions daughter Mrs Phil Allen of Menlo Park, CA. A headstone840 in Hillside Memorial Park, Redlands, CA, has "Mayreta V Allen 1909 - (blank)" on the same stone with "Phillip N Allen 1907 - (blank)." The California Death Index527 has Phillip Northrup Allen, b 3 Nov 1907; d 4 July 1981, San Mateo, CA.
