Family of Eli VEAZIE and Polly (Mary) CRAWFORD
Eli VEAZIE b. 1776 Apr 28937 at Braintree, MA937. d. 1853 Mar 282613 at Chelsea, MA2613.
Polly (Mary) CRAWFORD b. 1778~1755 at Boston, MA4358. d. 1823 May 125488 at 21 Charter St., Boston, MA5488.
Married853 1802 Apr 20 at Boston, MA. Eli indexed as Veazio
Shortly after his birth (src 937 2:30), "Eli son of Elijah Vesie Junr" was baptized on May 19 (src 944:2485). In 1850, Eli Veazie, age 74, a trader, is living in the household of his son George A Veazie. Polly Veazie doesn't appear there. In 1853, at the age of 77, Eli, widower and trader, died2613 of "disease of heart."
Sprague841 has Polly's maiden name "Croxford," as does the transcribed Mass. Marriages853. Those two references appear to be the only reference to a Polly "Croxford." The death record1774 for daughter Ann (Veazie) Hardwick lists Polly's (handwritten) maiden name as "Crawford" and Polly's birthplace as Boston. The death record1790 of Mary W Bliss, widow of "Eli C," lists her parents as Eli Veazie and Mary Crawford. The informant for that information isn't indicated. A possible clue to Polly's parentage may be the Sarah (AKA Sally) Crawford who, age 79 in 18554358 and age 82 in 18601759, resided in the household of Eli and Mary W (Veazie) Bliss in Chelsea. Could Sarah be Polly's sister?
Polly's Boston death record1755 lists her age at death 45, "family" Eli Veazie, 21 Charter St. She is listed as dying in "childbed." Her death notice was published in the Boston Daily Advertiser (www.genealogybank.com), Tue, May 13, 1823, p 2: "In this city, yesterday morning, Mrs Polly Veazie, wife of Mr Eli Veazie, aged 45. Funeral this afternoon, at 4 o'clock, from his dwelling house, Richmond street. The friends and relations are requested to atten without a more particular invitation."
Child 8. Stephen
Stephen W Veazie died5488 Sep 3, 1821, Boston, MA, at the age of 3 of measles. His death record lists his family as "Elijah Veazie" and place of interment as "21 Charter St." From his approximate birthdate and being of the family "Elijah Veazie," it is assumed he was a son of Elijah and Polly (Crawford) Veazie.
