Family of George Augustus VEAZIE and Hannah Bradley KOWSE
Married1755 1835 Oct 81755 at Boston, MA1755.
Hillman800 has death month "Jun," probably a typo. The Boston Death Index1755 lists the death of two children: Sarah C, age 21 days, and William Henry, age 5 months, "family" of George A Veazie, 21 Charter St. As other records indicate George's parents. Eli and Polly Veazie, lived about that time at 21 Charter St., it is assumed George is living at the time with his father, and George and Hannah are the parents of those children. Their births also account for a relatively long period between the births of George Jr in 1836 and Adaline in 1841. In the 1847 Chelsea City Directory1735, George A Veazie was a shoe dealer, 136 Hanover B, home Chesnut (near? Cary's Farm). He is listed in 1850 as a "dealer." After that date, his occupation was a shoe dealer. He died2756 in 1893, having suffered from an attack of "grip," from which he never recovered. He engaged in the shoe business as a young man with his father. Although his obituary mentions his ten children, in fact, he and Hannah had twelve children, two of whom (William Henry and Sarah C) died in infancy of the croup.
Hannah's parents Thomas, b Denmark, and Mary (Bliss), b Boston, Couse are given in her death record855, 456:519. Her birthdate is estimated from her age at death, 77y 1m 18d. A birth record1767 lists son Philander's mother as "Hannah B Wellman." She died of "valv. Dis. Of heart."
Child 2. William
William Henry died of croup1755 at the age of 5 months.
Child 4. Sarah
Sarah C, the older of that name, died1755 of hooping cough at the age of 21 days.
Child 7. William
William's death record1790 lists him as single, age 18y 11m. His birthdate would be Oct 5, 1845, calculated from that information. Other records indicate a birthyear of 1846 may be more correct. That death record also lists his occupation as "Clerk, Vol." In fact, William enlisted1993 as a clerk with Company E, Massachusetts 4th Cavalry Regiment on 18 Feb 1864. He is listied as "mustered out" on 5 Sep 1864, David's Island, NY Harbor. As indicated by his death record, he died of chronic diarrhea on that date. David's Island was the location of De Camp General Hospital, the Union Army's largest during the Civil War. His father's obituary2756 mentions that one of George's children preceded him in death, having given up his life "in the service of his country."
