Mary D or W VEAZIE b. 1823~ at Westchester Co., NY. d. 1887 Apr 204804 at Albion, NY5272. bd. Mt Albion Cem., Maple View section, Albion, NY4804.
Married4803 1874~4804 at (prob) Albion, NY. Mary appears as the wife of Henry in the 1875 and 1880 censuses4803 1899 for Albion, NY. An Albion cemetery inscription4804 lists Mary W Veazie as the wife of Henry.
Hillman800 supposed this Henry Veazie to be the son of Thomas and Mary "Polly" (Havens) Veazie, based on Henry's age given in various records, and his birthplace listed as Massachusetts in some records. However, the probate records4509 for Joseph Veazie of Rhode Island, contain several affidavits which provide information not found elsewhere, identifying this Henry Veazie as the son of Thomas' brother Benjamin, and Benjamin's wife, Polly.
One of those affidavits4508, most important to this profile, was deposed in 1865 by Polly Veazie of Parma, NY, "widow of Benj. Veazie." She provides the birth date for her son Henry Veazie. Of their three children, excepting Martha "who died prior to 1860 without issue," states they survived her husband Benjamin.
Another affidavit4504, deposed in 1866 by John V Efner of Parma, the son of Mary (Veazie) Efner, also states that his mother's brother Benjamin left a widow, also of Parma, with one surviving child, Henry Veazie. Henry's sister, Caroline (Veazie) Smith, mentioned as alive in 1865 by Polly Veazie, died several months before Efner's deposition. Various cemetery inscriptions1822 in Parma Corners Cem., Parma, NY, coincide with other information to provide information for Henry Veazie, son of Benjamin and Polly (Darling) Veazie.
Henry's occupations were: 1850 - carpenter; 1855, 1860, 1865, 1870, 1875,1880 -pump maker. Henry's birthplace is listed in 2 census records as New York. In the majority of records that list his birthplace, it's listed as Massachusetts. The information an 1888 census1900 of inmates in almhouses and poorhouses, Erie Co., NY, for a Henry Veazie, fits exactly this son of Benjamin Veazie. Sadly, his reason for dependence is listed as "destitution."
In a 1865 affidavit4515 deposed by Mary J (Veazie) Hayden, daughter of Thomas Veazie, Mary states her brother Henry died leaving a widow "Lydia A." of Rome, NY, and three children, giving their full names. That Henry H Veazie, son of Thomas Veazie is profiled elsewhere.
