Family of Hylas Leon VESEY and Julia Bell VESEY
In 1900, Hylas and Bell had been married 6 years. The informant for Bell's death certificate was H L Vesey, who was also listed as her husband. Her parents where listed as Reed Vesey and Marion Glines. A bit of investigation reveals that Hylas and Bell were cousins.
In 1900, Hylas is listed as a farmer. The 1900 census lists his birthdate as Apr 1867. His death certificate, for whom the informant was Blake Brewster (his son-in-law), has his birthdate as Apr 27, 1868. 1867 is more likley correct. From 1910 to 1930, he is listed as mail carrier and postmaster for the US Government. In 1940 no occupation is listed. His death certificate1475 lists his occupation as Post Master. His death notice2149 states he was a member of the National Walking Club and, on his 75th birthday, walked 20 miles in six hours. That notice also mentioned his full name.
In 1910, Bell is listed as the mother of 3, 2 now living. Those 2 are (obviously) Julian and Marion, listed in that record. It is assumed that Julie, twin sister to Julian died some time before 1910.
Child 1. Julian
Julie's birthdate is listed2144 as July 1897 in the 1900 census. The headstone840 of Julian H Vesey reads "1897-1917." Thus, if the census and the headstone are correct, Julie and Julian must have been twins (i.e., with the same birthdate). The reason Julian is not listed in the 1900 census is unknown.
Child 2. Julie
Julie's birthdate is given as the same as that for Julian, her twin brother, as listed in Julian's death1475 certificate.
