Family of Samuel F VEAZIE and Sophie BURGESS
Married2317 1876 Jul 222317 at Rockland, ME2317.
Samuel worked as a shipyard carpenter in 1870. He married in Rockland, ME, in 1876, Miss Sophia Burgess. The marriage apparently did not last long as Hillman800 references a quitclaim dated Nov, 1877, in which Sophia uses her maiden name. Samuel married Mar 6, 1880, Frances C Carleton, and, in 1880, Samuel appears married in the household of Isabella Carleton with Fannie C Veazie, age 23. That marriage did not last, either, as Fannie married in Camden, ME, Jun 22, 1893, Mason K St Clair. In 1900, Samuel, divorced and now a master mariner, resided in Rockport, ME, in the household of Alonzo and Millie Rankin. In 1910, Samuel, then 62 years of age, (still) divorced, was a ship's carpenter in a shipyard, resided in Rockport with Millie Rankin, widowed, now his housekeeper. Hillman800 mentions Samuel's will, dated Aug 9, 1913, in which Samuel leaves his entire estate to Permelia Rankin.
In the marriage record2204 for Samuel F Veazie to Sophia Burgess, the only information recorded regarding Sophia is that her name is prefixed by "Miss" and she was a resident of Camden, ME.
