Maine Marriages2317 lists "George Leary" married to Lucy Jane Morton. The death record for Lucy (Veazie), daughter of Jason Veazie and Jane Barns, lists her as married, the wife of George O'Leary. Maine Marriage Records809 lists George and Lucy Jane as married by Edward McSweeney.
George's middle initial is listed in Lucy J O'Leary's death record2204. That record also indicates that Lucy was married at the time of her death, her spouse George D O'Leary. In 1880, George "Olary," age 45, granite cutter, and wife Lucy, age 44, lived in Vinalhaven, Maine, a town on an island off the coast opposite Rockport and Camden. Although they are both listed as born Ireland, both parents born Ireland, it is likely Lucy is Lucy Jane Veazie. The 1900 census2485 lists George, a granite quarryman born in Canada, as immigrating in 1868. That record lists his age as 53, born May 1847. Lucy, his wife, is listed as age 59, born Dec 1840, born in Maine and both parents born Maine. In spite of the discrepancies in birthdates, it is likely Lucy is Lucy Jane Veazie as they are listed as married 28 years, which matches the referenced marriage record, and George's occupations in 1880 and 1900 are so similar. In 1920, a George O'Leary, a widower aged 80, born Ireland, is listed in Sharon, Massachusetts, having immigrated in 1868, naturalized in 1874.
In 1850, Lucy J Veazie resided430 in the household of Herbert and (her mother) Jane Hewett. Herbert was her mother's second husband.
In 1860, apparently following the death of her husband, Lucy and her children are living in Rockland. In 1880, Following her marriage to George O'Leary, she and George are living in Vinalhaven, none of her children in the household. In 1900, Lucy is listed as the mother of 5, 4 then living. The child who was not living may well be Augusta as no other records for her can be found.
