Orpha Dee CRAWFORD b. 1893 Aug 214200 at Verango Co., PA4200. d. 1925 bef4999.
Married1331 1917 Jul 214996 at Franklin, PA4996. The 1917 wedding announcement4996 for Orpha Dee Crawford, dau of Ralph W Crawford (of Salt Lake city), to Walter B Veazie, mentions that the couple were married at the home of Orpha's uncle, Thomas J Barr, in Franklin, PA.
In 1900 and 1910, Walter was living with his parents. Walter's full name is given in his 1914 passport645 application. At the time, his residence was New York City and he was a student. In June, 1917, he was single, still in New York and a teacher221 at Columbia University.
Walter married4996 Orpha Dee Crawford, Jul 21, 1917, in Franklin, PA. The next year, Walter, of 530 W 123 St, NY, NY, was inducted4204 into the U S Army, NY Div 135, Mar 18, 1918, at the age of 25, became a Corporal on Jun 5, 1918, and was transferred to Camp Hancock, GA, where he was honorably discharged Nov 6, 1918.
In 1919, Walter Broad Veazie is listed2396 as a Second Lieutenant in the Officers' Reserve Corp of the US Army, address New York University, NY. In 1920, he, Orpha and his 3 sons were living in Queens and he was an assistant professor of natural history.
Walter married Hazel M Milner in 1925. Walter and Hazel M Veazie were divorced4202, Jan 3, 1930, Boulder, CO.
In 1930, he is listed2394 in the census (enumerated April 18) as a widower, living in North Boulder, CO, a professor at the University of Colorado.
www.e-yearbook.com, University of Colorado (Boulder, CO), Class of 1944, lists Walter B Veazie, Head of the Department of Philosophy, "erudite in many fields of the arts and sciences." That reference states he had been of the University faculty since 1923, received both his B.A. and Ph.L. from the University of Columbia. In 1940, still a university professor residing in North Boulder, he was married to Eunice, and 2 of his sons, Walter and Ralph, and daughter Enid, are residing there. Unsourced cemetery information840 has Walter and Eunice married in June, 1929. That seems unlikely as Eunice didn't appear in the 1930 census, and Walter is listed that year as widowed. The Review of Metaphysics, Vol 16, Iss 3, Mar 1963, lists (secure.pdcnet.org) Walter as Professor Emeritus of Philosophy of the University of Colorado, retired in 1961. A general search, both publications and newspapers, will yield several references to his rather eclectic academic career and publications in the field of philosophy.
In 1900, Orpha Dee Crawford resided4201 with her parents, Ralph and Ada A Crawford, in Franklin, PA. By 1910, the family had moved to Salt Lake, and Orpha resided there2383 with her parents.
In 1917, Orpha D Crawford is listed1735 in the Salt Lake City directory as a teacher at South Jordan School, boarding at 3 Hebaus Flats. That directory also lists Ralph W Crawford, residence 3 Hebaus Flat.
Orpha's maiden name appears in a 1917 marriage announcement4996 for her marriage to Walter B Veazie "of New York city." That announcement stated "Miss Orpha Dee Crawford, daughter of Mr Ralph W Crawford of this city [Salt Lake]," to Walter B Veazie took place Sat, July 21, at the home of Opha's uncle, Mr Thomas J Barr, at Franklin, PA.
James Thomas Barr appears in the 1880 census for Phillipsburg, PA, in the household of James and Serepta Barr, along with Aldie A Barr, his sister. In 1920, J Thomas Barr appears in the census for Franklin, PA. He appears variously in records as Thomas J, James Thomas, and J Thomas Barr.
Another newspaper clipping4182, Sep 5, 1917, Westfield, NY, relates that "Miss Hewitt" had received an announcement of the marriage of Doctor Walter B Veazei of Columbia University, New York, to Miss Orpha D "Mitchel"(sic) of Franklin, Pa.
It appears Orpha died before 1925, as husband Walter B Veazie married Hazel L Milner in June of 1925.
