Family of Samuel VEAZIE and Rebecca HARRINGTON
Samuel VEAZIE b. 1780 Aug 20989 at (bapt) Hollis St Ch., Boston, MA989. d. 1848 Jun 202023 at North Adams, MA2023.
Rebecca HARRINGTON b. 1779~2023. d. 1845 Nov 172023.
Samuel joined2023 the First Baptist Church of North Adams, MA, in 1808 and left the same year.
Hillman800 has two children of Samuel and Rebecca (Harrington) Veazie: Samuel, born 1808 in Schoharie Co., NY; and possibly a daughter (based on the 1820 census for North Adams, MA), born ~1813, who perhaps died young. Hillman correctly questions the older child Samuel's birth date (1808) and place (Schoharie Co., NY), as the elder Samuel joined the First Baptist Church of North Adams, MA, in 1808, and left the church the same year.
An 1865 deposition4513 by the younger Samuel Veazie clarifies that situation, as it state that his (the younger Samuel) parents were, in fact, Mary Veazie (the elder Samuel's sister) and John Murphy of Schoharie (County), New York. His father died soon thereafter and his mother remarried. Following his mother's second marriage, the younger Samuel was adopted by his uncle Samuel and lived with him in North Adams during his younger years. The younger Samuel also states that his adoptive parents had no children of their own.
North Adams First Baptist Church records2023 list Rebecca's death, Nov 17, 1845, aged 67 yrs. She joined that church in 1809 by letter from Stamford, Vt.
