Family of Eli VEAZIE and Polly CRAWFORD

Married853 1802 Apr 20 at Boston, MA. Eli indexed as Veazio

Polly CRAWFORD b. 1778~1755 at Boston, MA4358. d. 1823 May 121755 at 21 Charter St., Boston, MA1755.

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 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."
