Family of Alden VEAZIE and Elizabeth LORD
Married2317 1846 Jan 152317 at Limington, ME2317.
The intention was filed Dec 28, 1845, in Limington, ME.
In 1851, Alden and Elizabeth, newly married, emigrated to Caton, NY, along with his brothers Stephen and Laban, and his sisters Martha and Mary Jane. Although Alden's occupation in 1865 is listed as jeweler, other indications are that he spent his life farming. Some time between 1865 and 1870, perhaps due to the death of Elizabeth's father between 1860 and 1870, Alden and his family moved to Limington, ME, where they lived probably until their deaths. Elizabeth's mother was living with them in Limington, Maine, 1870 and 1880. Sadly, in 1880, Olive Lord is listed as "blind." The enumerator for the 1900 Limington, ME, census entered the town of birth (if born in Maine) for each indivdual and their parents. Alden and Elizabeth had 3 children, though only 2 can be accounted for. In 1900, the census for Limington lists Elizabeth Veazie, age 82, mother of 3, 2 still living (prob George and Herbert), as a widow in the household of her son, Herbert. In 1910, she is listed as the mother of 3, only 1 still living (Herbert). Elizabeth probably died before 1920, as Herbert is listed as a head of household in Cornish, ME, with no other family members.
The Annual report of the municipal officers of the town of Limington, 1911-1912 reports the death Mar. 20, 1911, of Elizabeth Veazie, aged 83 yrs., 2 mos, 28 days.
Child 2. HerbertIn 1930, Herbert, age 74 and single, was a boarder in the household of Ralph Smillie.
