Family of George J BURT and Anna H VEAZIE

Married1853.

His death notice in the Wellsboro (PA) Agitator reads, in part: "His widow will be remembered as Miss Anna Veazie, formerly a resident of this borough (Wellsboro, PA)."

Reliable identification of George's father is a bit of a mystery. His obituary1854 says his widowed mother married as his second wife ex-Governor (of NY) Lucius Robinson. Lucius Robinson in the 1870 census for Southport, Chemung Co., NY, documented elsewhere as his retirement location, lists his wife as Ellen, age 42, born (~1828) in Connecticut. The 1860 census for Albany1855 has in the household of Ellen Burt, age 28??, born in Connecticut, George J Burt, age 8. In 1850 in Albany1856, before George's birth, are James and Ellin Burt of the appropriate ages. Anna is listed1735 in 1891, after George's death, as the "widow of George, jr." If George's middle name is James, that 1850 census may list his parents. In any case, it seems likely that his mother was Ellen, born ~1825 in Connecticut.

George must've been somewhat athletic, as the New York Times© reports, August 12, 1883, of the Watkins Regatta that George J Burt was entered in amateur races: double-scull race, George J Burt and John Galligan, of Elmira, NY; and senior single (George J Burt, of Elmira, NY). John Galligan was entered in the junior singles. The Elmira (NY) Morning Telegram, 1907, in a "25 Years Ago" column, reported that George Burt and Ben Andrews were to row a boat race on the Chemung, Sept 5, 1882. Characterized as a "man of much promise" by the Corning Journal1854, George is stated to have ended his life through "the use of cocaine and other stimulants."

In the Elmira city directory1735 in 1891, Anna is listed as "Burt, Anna H., widow George, jr." at 119 Penna Ave, the address at which George appeared in previous directories. In 1900, Anna, a widow, and son George J Burt resided380 in Elmira in the household of Sarah H Havens, Anna's sister, the widow of Samuel Havens. Anna was a dressmaker.

In 1910, Anna and son George resided4518 in Ithaca, NY, where Anna ran a boarding house. In 1920, Anna resided4572 with son George, his wife Sarah, and their son John, in Naperville, IL. In 1925, Anna resided4519 in son George's household in Rochester, with George's wife Sarah, and their son John. A 1926 newspaper article4520 mentions that George Burt, son John, and Mrs Anna Burt, of Rochester, were spending a few days with Mr and Mrs T J Havens (Anna's nephew Thomas Jabez Havens) of Elmira Heights, and that Anna would spend the summer there.

The obituary4571 for Aura (Veazie) Burt mentions a surviving son, George J Burt, at whose home in Rochester she died.
