Family of John VEAZIE and Sarah E PAGE

Married1838 1850~ at prob Yates Co., NY.

The 1850 census1838 lists John and Sarah Veazie in the household of Thomas Veazie. The obituary3143 for Henry Page mentions a surviving sister, Mrs John Veazie of Havana, NY. That obituary mentions Henry's parents (and therefore Mrs John Veazie's parents) as Cyrus and Nancy Hillborn Page of Connecticut. The 1880 census3144 for Havana, NY, lists Sarah Veazie, wife of John Veazie, parents both born in Connecticut. The marriage date is a guess based on the appearance of John and Sarah in the 1850 census, and the birth of their son Henry about 1853. The 1855 census3145 lists both John and Sarah as resident in Yates Co., NY, for 20 and 28 years respectively. It is therefore likely they married in that county.

John's obituary3142 mentions his birthplace and date, his surviving brother Thomas of Elmira (previous owner of the Veazie House in Geneva), a surviving (no name given) widow, a son (no name), and a sister, Mrs Hayden, all of Havana. John is listed1838 3145 as a wagonmaker in 1850 and 1855. In 1860, he was1838 a bar tender. In 18702824 and 18803144, he was an hotel clerk. John died3142 of paralysis at his home in Havana, NY.

in 1865, Nancy Page, "moth-in-law," resided{\supr 4353} in the household of John, Sarah and Henry Veazie, in Havana, NY.

The 1889 obituary3143 of Sarah's brother Henry Page states that, with his death, the only surviving child of Cyrus and Nancy Hilborn Page was Mrs John Veazie, of Havana, NY. That obituary further states that Henry was born at Litchfield, Conn., one of ten children. Early in 1818, the family moved from Connecticut to Western New York, a four day journey by wagon over rough roads, finally setting at Dresden, NY, on Seneca Lake.

Child 1. Henry

Various records list Henry's middle initial as J, P and S. In 1870, Henry's occupation was an apprendice in a machine shop. In 1880, he was listed as a (locomotive) fireman. In 1900, Henry's birthdate is listed as Sep 1856, and his occupation as "Engineer, Salt Pt." His 1918 obituary3148 states he was for many years a locomotive engineer, but for the previous fourteen years had been employed at Salt Point (NY). He was unmarried.
