Family of George VEAZIE and Mary C PLATTS
George VEAZIE b. 1790 Aug 15944 at (bapt) First Church, Braintree, MA944. d. 1873 Jun 162613 at Quincy, MA2613.
Mary C PLATTS b. 1788 Jul~1774 at Methuen, MA1774. d. 1854 Nov 261774 at Quincy, MA1774.
Married4009 1851 Oct 194009 at Christ Church, Quincy, MA4009. Hillman800 has year 1852, perhaps a typo. George Veazie and Mary Platts were married4009 by Rev J T Burrell, Miniister of Christ Church, Quincy, MA. That record has George, age 61, a carpenter, resident of Quincy, born Quincy, second marriage; Mary, age 63, resident of Boston, born Vermont, first marriage.
AVB2786 has George's birthdate as Aug 6, 1790, which closely matches his calculated birthdate from age at death: 82y 10m, possibly AVB's source.
In 1830, John Quincy Adams, ex-president, was renovating5286 5287 his house. On Dec 29, 1830, George Veazie, "the Carpenter of Quincy who came in to see about the Posts which Mr Beale and I were talking," was consulted to do some of the work. Charles Francis Adams "discussed with him [George Veazie] many points in relation to the old House, and concluded by asking him to provide estimates for the Stone, after which [Adams] would talk with him." On Mar 26, 1831, Charles Adams went to Quincy to "find Mr Veazie and talked with him in regard to the Work to be done."
On Apr 8, "Mr. G. Veazie, the Carpenter came from Quincy and presented his Accounts for repairs made upon the House, which after consideration and discussion [Charles Adams] paid. [Those repairs had] been made in the most expesive way owing to [Charles Adams'] Father's trusting it entirely to the Workmen." Charles Adams recorded immediately after that entry that he had come to the conclusion that his father (John Quincy Adams) would have done better to have simply built a house.
Apparently the repairs were, indeed, extensive, as two years later, John Quincy Adams, on Jul 22, 1833, recorded5287 that his first visitor that day "was Mr George Veazie, with whom" he settled an account.
In 1860, George860 was a farmer, with value of real estate $6000, and $200 value of personal estate. In 1865 and 1870, George was listed as a carpenter.
George, married and a carpenter, died2613 of old age, at the age of 82y 10m.
Mary C Veazie died944 1774 (prob) at home, of cancer1774 about 12 AM, at the age1774 of 66y 4m, after a severe illness of more than a year. Her death record1774 has her place of birth as Methuen, NH. Today (2016) Methuen is in Massachusetts, adjacent to the border with New Hampshire.
