Charles was born1711 in Mt Vernon, Maine.
Soon after his birth, his parents and siblings, along with several uncles, aunts and cousins emigrated to Caton, New York.
Early in life, Charles was a farmer, later becoming a successful merchant running a general store in Coopers Plains (now known as Erwin), NY. C H Veazie built a general merchandise store in Coopers in 1880. He ran the store for about 20 years, after which it was handled by several men including Arthur Bideler [cousin to his wife Alice] and D W Barkley [the father of son Max Veazie's wife, Hyla]. C H's son Fay became proprietor in 1914 and continued the business until 1949, when Fay sold the property to Maynard Watkins of Riverside, NY. The store housed the Coopers Plains Post Office starting in the early 1900s. Charles and his brother Stephen G. Veazie were executors369 of their father's will. C H, in his older years, apparently had heart trouble1693 and passed away in the morning while doing his chores. His family plot in Coopers Plains Cem (Erwin, NY) has a large monument on the reverse of which are listed the names of his wife and children. Headstones for several members of the family are arrayed to the left and right of that monument.
Alice was born1063 Sep 9, 1848 (her obit3007 has Sep 10), in Coopers Plains, NY, to David and Anna (Matteson) Bideler. She lived in Coopers her entire life. She was devoted to her family and active in the Coopers Plains Baptist Church.
