This marriage record lists Henry's father as William and mother's maiden name as Harper.

Henry does not seem to appear in the 1860 or 1870 census records. It may be he is the Henry Vesey of the 11th Regiment of the Indiana Cavalry, serving during the Civil War.

In 1880, Henry, wife Mary and children Florence, Melvin, Ina and Myrtle, resided in Elkhart, IN, where he was a laborer. In 1900, Henry, a day laborer, resided with his son Melvin and Melvin's family. In 1910, Henry, then a retired farmer, had married Fanny and they resided in Goshen Twp, Elkhart Co., IN, with several of Fanny's children by her former marriage. In 1920, he, no occupation listed, and Fannie still resided in Goshen.

Henry C Vesey, a retired farmer, died4633 in 1929 at the age of 80y 10m 26d, of arterio sclerosis.

Fanny married first, in 1882, Edgar J Vesey. Fannie filed suit4599 for divorce from Edgar, on grounds of cruel and inhuman treatment, and violation of marriage vows. Fannie and Edgar had separated on Nov 1, and, on Nov 11, 1904, Fannie was granted a divorce4598 from Edgar. She married second1523, in 1906, Edgar's brother Henry C Vesey. In Oct, 1915, Edgar Vesey filed a petition4598 for the release from divorce payments to Fannie, on the grounds that their oldest child was then 16 years of age, and his only source of income was as "city marshal," which term would expire on Jan 1.

In 1910, Fannie is listed2090 as the mother of 10, 6 now living. Only eight of those ten can be identified.

Interestingly, a marriage listing2072 has Fannie Vesey (fath John E Reist, moth Sophia Wagner) married 26 Nov 1922 in Elkhart Co., Indiana, Simon W Cripe, b 2 Dec 1861, the son of David B Cripe and Barbara Weaver.
