Family of George VEAZIE and Mary R VANNETT
George VEAZIE b. 1848 Sep1909 at Monroe Co., NY2811. d. 1921 Sep 61904 at Maple View (Mexico), NY1904. bd. Mapleview Cem., Mexico, NY840.
Mary R VANNETT b. 1867 Aug 175263 at Scotland1909. d. 1953840. bd. Maple View Cem., Mexico, NY840.
Married1909 1899~1912 at probably Maine, Minnesota1912.
In the 1900 census1909 George and Mary are both listed as married 12 years. However, Mary's children (step-children to George), surnames "Nurse," were born from 1889 to 1898, so it is unlikely George and Mary were married prior to 1898. In the 1905 census1909 George and Mary have a daughter Esther, age 4. As they were married by the time of the 1900 census, their marriage date is an informed guess.
In 1870, George was a farm laborer. For the rest of his life, he was a farmer. George died1904 at the age of 73 years.
Mary immigrated1909, prob from Scotland, in 1880. She married first, perhaps around 1887, Jerome A Nurse. Following Jerome's death in 1898, she married second around 1899, George Veazie. Several years following George's death, Mary married third Oct 10, 1931, Harvey Spafford of Mexico, NY, she being at that time of Cleveland. Harvey Spafford's obituary ( Mexico NY Independent, April 18, 1935) states he was born in Lindquist, Ontario, Oct 23, 1863. He died April 12, 1935 at his home in Prattham.
Mary's maiden name is not clearly known. The obituary of her son George J Veazie states he was the son of the late George and Mary Lamb Veazie. The marriage records1916 for her daughter Esther Jane Veazie list her mother as Mary Vanet or Vanett. Unfortunately, a census search for appropriate ages and locations yields a Mary Vanette, age 17, born Scotland, in 1885 in Glyndon, MN, as well as a Mary Lamb, age 19 in Barnesville, born Scotland, the same year. Interestingly, that Mary Lamb is listed in the residence of David Vannett, born Scotland. However, several of the children of David Vannett were born in Minnesota from 1876 to 1880. As Mary Lamb/Varnett immigrated in 1880, that associaton is tenuous.
Somewhat strangely, considering her marriage to Harvey Spafford after George Veazie's death, "Mary R 1868 - 1953" appears on the same stone and just below George Veazie's inscription.
