Family of Peter VEAZIE and Nancy Anna BOWMAN

Married886 1775 Sep 18886 at Haverhill, MA886.

Nancy Anna BOWMAN b. 1755~1723. d. 1830 Dec 251723 at Boston, MA1723. bd. No 68, Granary Burying Grounds, Boston, MA1723.

Peter's death date is assumed solely from a Boston City Directory, 1816, which lists Nancy Veazie, living at the end of Union Street, as a widow.

The information concerning the family of Peter Veazie is rather circumstantial. He certainly was a son989 of Joseph and Jerusha (Boylston) Veazie. A Peter Vesey married886 Anna Bowman in Havervill, MA. It is only assumed that that Peter Vesey was the son of Joseph and Jerusha due to the lack (perhaps undiscovered) of other candidates. Rebecca and Joseph were children of Peter and Nancy Veazie, according to their death records1781. A "Nancy Veazie" died1723 in Boston, "of the family of" Joseph Veazie, possibly her son. That Nancy Veazie was born ~1755, appropriate for the wife of Peter. A Nancy Veazie, widow, resided1735 in Boston in 1816. A genealogy for John Bridge1786 lists Rachel Flagg Bridge married to Joseph, "son of Peter and Nancy (Bowman) Veazie of Boston." As the author provides no references, it may be that author made the same assumptions as this author. With the circumstances as stated above, it is assumed that Peter Veazie married Anna Nancy Bowman and had (at least) 2 children by her.

Nancy's birthdate is estimated from her age at death1723: 75.

Child 2. Rebecca

Rebecca, single, died of phthisis[sic]. Her death record1781 lists her parents as Peter and Nancy, both of Boston.
