Erwin was baptized2023 in the First Bapt Church, North Adams, 1857. That record lists his deathdate. It has mentions "aged about 60 years moved to Cleveland Ohio, was a widower age 77 yrs in 1918 at Cleveland."

Child 1. Bernard
Bernard is rather elusive with respect to record references. Although he appears in several city directories, some of which are referenced for his locations, he was found only in the 1920 and 1930 censuses. In 1912, he resided1735 at 219 W 8th Av in Cincinnti, OH. He is listed as "supt n w c," at Highland Av and Dorchester Av. In 1920, he was in Beaver Falls, PA, working as a machinist at a steel mill. He lists himself as married then, but no wife is in evidence. In 1922, "Bernhard" Veazie, of 234 Oregon Av, "Ph," PA, was the informant for the death certificate3306 of his father, Erwin T Veazie. In 1930, he is living with the Horace Kegg family as a lodger, and working as a carpenter. In 1921, Bernard and two other men received a patent2036 for a collapsible seat (appears to be intended to be constructed of wood). In 1950, he visited2037 his cousins Charles and Clifford Veazie of 36 State Street (North Adams) and returned to "his home in Pittsburgh."
Bernard died of a cerebral vascular accident at the age of 85. At the time of his death, he resided at 208 Comrie Ave, Braddock, PA, his occupation: "Pres. Associated Lumber." His death certificate states he was married, but the Spouse field of the certificate contains only a question mark.
It appears that he married sometime before Jul 1950 as The North Adams (MA) Transcript, Jul 5, 1950 (newspapers.com), under "Personal Paragraphs": Mrs Bernard S Veazie of Pittsburgh, Penn., is the guest of Mrs Mae Bean of 111 Main St. The same newspaper reported, Jun 27, 1949, under the same heading, that Bernard visited Mrs Mae Bean at the same address. Mary F (Mae) (Veazie) Bean was Bernard's first cousin.
