Family of Henry H VEAZIE and Lydia Ann HAYDEN
Henry H VEAZIE b. 1815 Sep 17840 at New York1901. d. 1852 Dec 19840. bd. Rome Cem., Rome, NY840.
Lydia Ann HAYDEN b. 1818 Sep 18840 at Oneida Co., NY3140. d. 1896 Apr 12840 at at her residence, North James St., Rome, NY4406. bd. Rome Cem., Rome, NY840.
Henry Veazie and wife Lydia A Hayden Veazie are listed on the same headstone840 in Rome Cem., Rome, NY. Their marriage date is estimated from the age of daughter Helen (ae 12) in the 1850 census1901 for Rome, NY.
Hillman800 has Henry Veazie born early 1814; married 1) Jane M ---, 2) Frances M ---, and 3) Mary W ---; and died after 1880 when that Henry Veazie last appeared in census records. Hillman concludes that that Henry was the son of Thomas and Mary (Polly) Havens based on his birthplace and ages listed in census records, which does fit well with birth dates and places for the other children of Thomas Veazie. However, that Henry Veazie was the son of Thomas' brother Benjamin Veazie, and Benjamin's wife, Polly (nee Darling.)
Thomas Veazie did, in fact, have a son Henry (H?) Veazie, as described in this profile. Hillman does not have this Henry Veazie, his wife or children.
An 1865 affidavit4515 by Mary J (Veazie) Hayden (Henry's sister), provides confirmation that Henry Veazie, whose wife was "Lydia A.," was the son of Thomas Veazie. In that 1865 affidavit, Mary J Hayden, identifying herself as the daughter of Thomas Veazie "formerly of Geneva [New York]," listed her siblings ( among them Henry), stating "all are now dead …" Mary Hayden stated further, regarding her brother Henry: "Henry died leaving a widow surviving him Lydia A. now of Rome NY and three children viz Helen Jane, Charles Henry and Louise Adelaide, all living of age except Louise Adelaide are all unmarried."
H H Veazie, age 35, merchant tailor, appears1901 in 1850 in Rome, NY. In that household are listed Lydia (ae 32), Helen Jane (ae 12), Charles H (ae 6) and Louise (ae 1) Veazie, along with 2 other individuals, Hetta Bake (ae 15) and George Budd (ae 15). George Budd is listed as a tailor, possibly Henry's employee. Several advertisements appear in the Rome (NY) Roman Citizen for Henry Veazie, tailor.
The image of the headstone840 in Rome, NY, for Henry Veazie (shared with his wife Lydia A Hayden) lists his death as Dec 19, 1852, at the age of 37y 3m 2d. His birthdate is calculated from that information.
Lydia Ann (Hayden) Veazie is identified as the daughter of Orange Hayden in Lydia's obituary4406. That obituary mentions surviving sister Mrs Mary White of Western, NY. The obituary4920 of Mrs Mary E White, Western, NY, states Mary was the daughter of Orange and Polly Hayden. Obituaries4517 4917 for Mrs Polly Hayden state she was the wife of Orange Hayden. Though circumstantial, it appears that Lydia's mother was the Polly Hayden mentioned in those obituaries.
Child 1. Helen
Helen's middle name is provided in an 1865 affidavit4515 by Mary (Veazie) Hayden, Helen's aunt. That document mentions Mary's brother Henry, wife Lydia, and the full names for their three children. In 1860, Helen Veazie, age 22, resided in the household of her uncle Thomas Veazie and his wife Julia. No further information.
Child 4. Richard
Richard's headstone840 reads: "Richard Hayden / Son of / Henry & Lydia Ann Veazie / Died May 3, 1853 / Aged 2 Years 1 month / & 21 Days."
