Family of Walter Broad VEAZIE and Orpha D MITCHEL
Walter and Orpha have a 2 year old son in 1920. The marriage date is a guess.
Orpha D MITCHEL b. 1894~1331 at Pennsylvania1331. d. 1930 bef2394.
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 residience 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 was inducted into the U S Army, NY Div 135, Mar 18, 1918, at the age of 25, and was transferred to Camp Hancock, GA. He became a Corporal, June 5, 1918, and was honorably discharged Nov 6, 1918.
Soon after that, he married Orpha Crawford. 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. In 1930, he is 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 a Professor Emeritus of Philosophy of the University of Colorado, retired in 1961. A general search will yield several references to his academic career and publications in the field of philosophy.
Orpha's maiden name appears in a Sep 5, 1917, newspaper clipping4182 which 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 of Franklin, Pa. It appears Orpha died before 1930 as husband Walter B Veazie is listed2394 that year as widowed.

Walter's middle name is listed840 on his headstone. Walter was a veteran of World War II. He enlisted1681 in the Army 13 Mar 1942 and was released 7 Jan 1946 as a sergeant.
