Family of Joseph Washburn MORTON and Lucy Jane VEAZIE
Joseph Washburn MORTON b. 1825~490 at Maine490. d. bef 1870?.
Lucy Jane VEAZIE b. 1834 Dec 101711 at Rockport, ME1711. d. 1903 Feb 171774 at Worcester, MA1774. bd. Rockland, ME1774.
Married2317 1851 Apr 112317 at Rockport, ME2317.
Maine Marriages2317 also lists the same marriage 6 Apr 1851. The Apr 6 date may be the intention.
Joseph's middle is assumed from the marriage record4009 of Josephine Morton to James A Lyons. Her parents are listed as "Washburn Morton" and Lucy Veazie. He is, in several records, otherwise listed as "Joseph W" Morton. He is likely the Joseph Morton, age 26, listed in the household of Thomas and Nancy Morton, in Camden, 1850. Joseph likely died before 1870, as wife Lucy and children appeared in Rockland without his apparent presence.
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.
Child 3. Herbert
In 1860, Herbert W, age 2, is listed with Joseph and Lucy. In 1870, Westerly H, age 11, is listed in the household of Lucy J Martin (now widowed?) and other children. In 1900, W "Harvey" Morton, born Aug 1858 and single, a stonecutter, was a boarder in an hotel run by Charles Haskell in Troy, NH. Herbert, a stonecutter, died of pulmonary tuberculosis at the age of 46y 1m 2d. His birthdate is calculated from that information. As the undertaker in that record was in Vinalhaven, it is assumed Herbert was buried there. There appears to be no indication that he married.
