Family of Guy L VESEY and Marie (Mary) NETH
Married1523 1904 Jul 181523 at St Joseph, Berrien Co., MI1523. Guy and Marie were married by M. Weber, Justice of the Peace. Witnesses were Hattie Neth, res Chicago, Ill., and David Hunter, res St Joseph, Mich.
Guy's middle initial appears on his headstone840. The Benton Harbor News-Pallidium (newspapers.com), in several articles, relates that, on January 12, 1898, one of Guy's legs was amputated due to complications from a gunshot wound he received while hunting with friends. Blood poisoning had set in. In 1900, Guy resided4450 with his parents and sister Grace in St Joseph Township, MI. On Jul 18, 1904, Guy (a resident of Chicago, IL) married1523 in St Joseph, MI, Marie Neth, the daughter of August Neth. Guy and Marie had a daughter4455 Marie in 1905. Shortly following daughter Marie's birth, in July, 1905, Guy became seriously ill, as reported in the News-Palladium (Benton Harbor, MI, newspapers.com), Jul 14, 1905: "Mr and Mrs L L Vesey were called to Chicago last night by a telegram announcing that their son Guy was seriously ill." He had contracted typhoid fever4458 from which he later recovered physically. However, the fever had affected his mind and he became violent. He was examined for mental instability, was jailed, and eventually admitted to the Kalamazoo State Hospital (for the insame). He resdied there for the rest of his life. His World War I draft registration221, dated 1918, indicates he resided at the State Hospital, and was disqualified for reasons of mental deficiency.
Sometime following his admission to the Kalamazoo Hospital, Guy and Marie were divorced. Marie apparently remarried, as the 1934 obituary4448 for Guy's father Lucius mentions a surviving daughter-in-law, Mrs Mary Hunt. Marie Hunt appears in the 1920 census in Chicago2113 as the daughter of Gustie Neth. Mary's daughters Marie (nee Vesey), age 14, and Madeline, age 7, resided with her.
In 1930, Mary Hunt was head of household1389 in Chicago, Illinois. Residing with her were her daughter Madelyn, son-in-law Paul K Hurd, and daughter Marie Hurd.
In 19402114, Chicago, Illinois, Marie Hunt, head of household, had residing with her, daughter Marie Herring, grandson Paul Herring, daughter Madeline Har(d)ned, Madeline's husband Robert, and granddaughter Carol Har(d)ned.
