Family of Horace M VESEY and Mary A VESEY
The marriage date is a guess from the birthyear of their oldest child.
Mary A VESEY b. 1822~2906 at Connecticut2906.
H M Vesey (as he appears in most references) was an hotel keeper. He removed to Michigan sometime before 1850, perhaps as early as 1833. From the Detroit, MI, Democratic Free Press (newspapers.com): his name appears in the list of left letters, Apr 3, 1833; he may be the "Henry M. Vesey" appointed by the governor apparently as a county or state officer for St. Joseph county, Mar 1, 1845; Horace M. Vesey was nominated for St. Jospeh county clerk, Oct 3, 1846 (reported Oct 13.) He resided4439 in Sturgis (mistranscibed as "St. Urges") township, St. Joseph Co., in 1845.
Horace was a miller and distiller2906 in 1850 in Michigan. He is likely the "W. M. Vesey" nominated by the Democratic party as a delegate for St. Joseph county in 1851 (Detroit Free Press, Sep 26, 1851; newspapers.com.) Horace then removed to California sometime in the 1850s and ran an hotel2908 in Washington Twp, CA, in 1860. By 1867, he was in Nevada2910, running Vesey's Hotel in Gold Hill. In 1875, he ran an hotel2909 in Douglas County, Nevada. The Daily Nevada State Journal (Reno), Nov 20, 1875, reports that Col. Vesey was having the Lake House (which he had leased) repainted and refitted, and "The Colonel will (soon) have things in apple pie order." His obituary2907 states he was personable and reputatble and a "true and noble gentleman." His body was removed to Virginia City and services would by held by the Gold Hill Masonic Lodge. The Knight Templars would escort remains to the grave.
