Martha HOPKINS d. at Herkimer, NY4513.
Ralph Hillman800 thinks it likely that John is the John Veazie, died February 1813, as transcribed from a headstone in the North Adams (MA) cemetery. Ralph's assumption is confirmed by an 1865 affidavit4513 by John's grandson Samuel Veazie (nee Murphy) [son of John Murphy and John Veazie's daughter Mary]. Samuel relates that his grandfather John Veazie, was "formerly of Braintree, and who came to this place [North Adams?] from Boston, Mass, when a young man about the time of the Revolutionary War." Samuel also said that John was a cabinetmaker by trade, a business he pursued until his death, "which occurred here [North Adams?] in February A..D. 1813." Although Samuel was young at the time of John's death, he had a lasting impression of his grandfather whom he had seen "in his last lickings," as John had rheumatism "from which he suffered so intensely."
Samuel Veazie also relates4513 that, when he was quite young, all of his mother's brothers and sisters, with the exception of his uncle Samuel Veazie, removed to the state of New York.
Unabashedly, this auther cites Hillman's Veazie Genealogy800 for much of the information for John and Martha's children. In particular, Ralph uncovered a document in a Boston Athenaeum collection that might otherwise have remained undiscovered with regard to the Veazie family. Duplication or examination of his references is difficult, unavailable (due to travel), extensive and expensive. As no discrepancies or significant disagreements have been noted, with the exception of James H Veazie, son of John Veazie and Mindwell Brown, this author includes this information on the family of John and Martha rather than leaving a significant branch of the Veazie family out of this work.
An 1865 affidavit4513 by grandson Samuel Veazie (nee Murphy) states that, following John Veazie's death in February, 1813, Martha left Massachusetts and went to live with her daughter, Martha, who was then living in Herkimer, NY. Samuel relates that "as I have been informed & believe," his grandmother died there. Martha's granddaughter Frances (Talcott) Richardson stated4514 that her grandmother, Martha Hopkins Veazie, following the death of Frances' grandfather John Veazie, removed from Adams, Mass, and lived with Frances' mother in Rome, NY, where she died. Herkimer and Rome are ~25 miles apart.
Child 7. Patty
Hillman has Patty probably died young, as she cannot be accounted for in the 1790 and 1800 census records.
