Family of Edwin (Edward) VESEY and Angeline MERRIMAN
Edwin (Edward) VESEY b. 1823 Mar 26840 at Perry, OH4613. d. 1900 Mar 111475 at Springfield, Lucas Co., OH1475. bd. Ravine Cem., Sylvania, OH840.
Angeline MERRIMAN b. 1830 May 311520 at Ohio1520. d. 1895 Jun 31520 at Whiteford, MI1520. bd. Ravine Cem., Sylvania, OH840.
Married2033 1847 Aug 122033 at Lake Co., OH2033.
Edwin appears in some records as "Edward." E.g., Painseville Telegraph, Wed, Aug 18, 1847, "Married Painesville last Thursday, Edward Vesey, of Perry, and Miss Angeline Merriman, of Painesville."
Edwin's birthplace is provided4613 by his granddaughter Hattie (Trombly) Shaner. Hattie was the informant for Rosaline (Vesey) Trombly's death certificate, which lists Rosaline's parents and their birthplaces.
Edwin doesn't appear in censuses until 1850. The determination of Edwin's parents is an assumption made from his location in that year's census, his age, birthplace, and the birthplaces of his parents as listed in the 1880 census2184. I.e., he lived in Painseville, adjacent to Perry, OH, where Jonathan and Sophia raised their family. He was born ~1822; he was born in Ohio, his father was born Vermont, and his mother Connecticut. His birthdate fits well between the date of Jonathan and Sophia's marriage and their son Salmon's birthdate. Jonathan was born in Vermont and Sophia in Connecticut.
Edwin served800 in the 24th Michigan Infantry Regiment during the Civil War. That unit fought in Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, and other sites, and was selected as escort at the funeral of Abraham Lincoln.
