Married2778 18342778 at Rome, NY2778.
Alpheus' obituary mentions that, following his apprenticeship in the carriage trade, he returned in 1834 to Rome and married there then. Alpheus and Sarah L, "his wife," appear on the same headstone.
Alpheus' headstone has deathdate Aug 22, 1873. His obituary2778 states he died "Friday, last, .." which would indicate Aug 29, 1873. However, that obituary was printed Monday, Sept 1, and was from information received from another newspaper. It may be that the original information was received on or prior to Aug 29, and Aug 22 would, therefore, be the "previous" Friday.
Alpheus' obituary2778 mentions that Alpheus was born in Williamstown, Mass. When he was 3 or 4 yrs of age, his parents moved to Rome, NY. In 1824, at the age of 15, he went to Rochester to learn the carriage making trade and was an apprentice there for 7 years. He returned to Rome in 1834 and married Sarah. In 1840, he moved to Dresden (NY) and engaged in carriage manufacturing. He later moved to Mount Morris and worked in carriage making until 1862, when he moved to Brockport. (in an 1865 affidavit4515, his sister Mary J Hayden mentions her brother Alpheus as living in Brockport) "There he worked alone and with his brother Charles in carriage making until 1870, when he retired on account of ill health. He died of inflammatory rheumatism. That obituary mentions survivors his wife and his children: Mrs Erastus Aldridge, Brockport; H H Veazie, Grand Rapids; C D Veazie, Titusville, PA; A Veazie, Jr, Milwaukee; and Clark H Veazie, Chicago, Illinois.
Sarah's maiden name comes from an obituary1843 which mentions her surviving brothers John and Charles G Hinckley. Another obituary4826 mentions that she died of heart trouble. The latter obituary mentions surviving sons: Clark B and Charles B of Brockport; Alpheus of Minneapolis, and Harry of Washington. Also, a surviving daughter, Mrs E Aldridge of Brockport.
Child 4. Alpheus
The 1873 obituary2778 of Alpheus Veazie (senior) mentions "A. Veazie, Jr., Milwaukee" among surviving children. He may be the Alpheus Veazie, trav. (traveling?) agent1735, in St Paul, MN, 1875.
In 1899, the remains of "Albert" Veazie were found4327 on October 29, in a dry streambed near Holstein, Iowa, by a man (John McLaughlin) who had been hunting. He testified that the remains had not been there six weeks prior, when he had been hunting the same ground. McLaughlin further stated that four days before the remains were found, he saw a team with some men drive on a run to the spot where the body was found, and, after a few minutes, drove away on a run. Other evidence indicated that "the said Albert Veazie" was in Chicago on August 5 and pawned a ring there. Word was received from "Mrs C H Veazie, Brockport, NY, a sister-in-law," to hold the body until her husband came. The referenced article did not mention whether the remains were identified as Alpheus Veazie, C H Veazie's brother.
Child 5. Thomas
A grave record2796 for Evergreen Cem, Dresden, NY, has "Thos. G. Veazie Son of Alphus Veazie [died] 8/24/1849 [age] 1 yr 3 mo. The father's name, the location, and the birth date among the birth dates for Alpheus Veazie's children indicate Thomas was likely Alpheus' son.
