Family of Edwin A VESEY and Mary DRINKWINE
Edwin A VESEY b. 1843~2906 at Michigan2906. d. 1904 Mar 95229 at S H Hospital, Spokane, WA5229. bd. Greenwood Cem., Spokane, WA5229.
Mary DRINKWINE b. 1855 Nov2392 at New York2392. d. 1916 May 45353 at Spokane, WA5353.
Married2392 1882~2392. Edwin and Mary Vesey appear as husband and wife in the 1900 census2392 for Spokane, WA. They had been married 18 years.
Edwin appears in some records as "Edward."
At the time of his death, Edwin's residence5229 was 326 S Monroe St, Spokane, WA, and his marital status was "married." The Spokane (WA) Press, Jan 3, 1905 (www.newspapers.com), in an article about lightning strikes in Spokane, reported that "Mrs E A Vesey, at Monroe street and fourth avenue," while standing on the porch, was knocked down and rendered unconscious when lightning struck a tin pan in her hand.
As Edwin's children were born in Montana, it appears that he was living in or near Butte, Montana, in the 1880s. Edwin A Vesey, "of Butte," purchased land5359 in section 15 of township 20 from the Northern Pacific railyway about Nov 1875. In 1884, among "overland passenger" arrivals5356 in Carlin, CA, is mentioned "Mrs M A Vesey, Butte City, Mont." That is likely Edwin's mother, having visited Edwin.
In 1891, it was reported5361 that "Eeward" Vesey, "of the Combination gambling house" became the father of twins, a boy and a girl. In 1893, the inquest5362 for George Hunter, who had committed suicide at a boarding house, was reported on. Among the witnesses was E A Vesey, "manager of the Combination gambling house," who identified the body and Hunter's handwriting.
In 1898, a court case in the District Court at Missoula, MT, was reported5360 as the "case of Vesey vs Drinkwine." Niether the litigants or the subject of the session was mentioned.
An obituary5352 for Edwin A Vesey mentions his address as 326 S Monroe, Spokane, WA, and that a wife and two grown children survived him.
In 1900, Mary Vesey was listed2392 as the mother of 4, 3 living. As "Eaward" Vesey was the father of twins, a boy and a girl, born Nov 2, 1891, it is assumed that son Patrick, elsewhere identified as born Nov 2, 1891, in Butte, Montana, was a twin, and a daughter died in infancy.
In 1910, Mary, now widowed, resided with her son Edward, son Paul, and daughter Sadie Flatt.
