Family of Charles VEAZIE and Mary Ann TITUS
Married2865 1819 Mar 22865 at Troy, NY2865.
Charles and Mary Ann were married by Rev Sommers. Hillman800 has date 7 March, based on newspaper VRs, 1850. The death notice2861 for Mary Ann Veazie in Troy, NY, has her the wife of Charles Veazie, and the daughter of Platt Titus. That Charles Veazie is the son of John and Martha (Hopkins) Veazie is circumstantial, but considered probable from census records locating Charles in the Albany/Troy, NY, area.
The Albany (NY) Daily Evening Times reported2863 , Jul 5, 1872, the death ("yesterday") of Charles Veazie, in Troy, aged 78, a resident for forty years. Hillman800 has deathdate as July 3. The Troy (NY) Daily Times, in Dec 1872, recapping the news for the year, lists July 3, "Death of Charles Veazie."
Hillman800 has minor differences in the birthdates of Charles' and Mary Ann's children from those given herein. Perhaps using the same original source, this author's reference and Hillman's reference may both be subject to transcription errors.
The publication "Troy's One Hundred Years, 1789-1889" by Arthur James Weise, Troy, NY, 1891, provides an interesting insight into Charles Veazie. In May, 1818, Charles established a coach-factory on the corner of Second and Albany streets, Troy, NY, following the vocation of many of his relatives. In 1830, Charles Veazie and Orsamus Easton turned out fifty post coaches, used on various stage lines in Rensselaer county. In 1832, a franchise was granted and articles of incorporation were written4319 for the Renssellaer & Saratoga railroad. Shortly thereafter, the coach company turned to the manufacture of rail coaches, and the first cars used on the mentioned railroad were made by Gilbert, Veazie & Eaton, "famous Troy car builders." The 24 passenger cars provided were considered "marvels of beauty." The cars were 24 feet long, 8 feet wide and just over 6 feet in height inside. Conveniences included crimson morocco leather seats and moveable panels, affording open or closed carriages. By 1841, the firm was known as Eaton & Gilbert.
In a 1865 affidavit4831, Charles stated he was the son of John Veazie of Braintree and Adams, MA, and listed his siblings, comprised of six sons and two daughters. In that affidavit, he stated that he was the only surviving child of John Veazie.
Mary Ann (Titus) Veazie died2866 at the age of 50y 10m 3d. Her birthdate is calculated from that information.
Child 3. Aurtis
Whether this child is male or female isn't clear. The cemetery records2866 for Oakwood list (transcribed) mother Mary Ann's parents names as Platt Titus and Austis Titus. It is assumed this child was name for Mary Ann's mother.
