Family of John VEAZIE and Mindwell BROWN
Married3031 1801 Apr 13031 at North Adams, MA3031.
The referenced newspaper article states (apparently directly from Mindwell) that she had been living in North Adams, MA, for two years when she married John Veazie, a native of Boston and nine years her senior.
The family of John Veazie and Mindwell Brown is described in an article "A Life of Ninety-Seven Years" in the Rochester (NY) Daily Union & Advertiser, Feb 24, 1882. That article celebrates Mindwell Veazie's long life and history and provides the names, birth- and death-dates of John and Mindwell's children (as of 1882). Hillman800 refers to a document written by Hattie Davis Veazie, the wife of Clark Henry Veazie, a grand-nephew of this John Veazie, for information regarding John and Mindwell's children. The referenced newspaper article provides more accurate information of the life of John, Mindwell, and their children.
In 1870, daughter Martha and Martha's husband Cyrus Allen are living in her household. In 1880, Mindwell Veasey was living1823 in the household of "Sias" and Martha Allen. The obituary2807 for Mrs Mindwell Brown Veazie states that she was one of the oldest residents of Rochester, aged ninety-eight years. Further: she was a granddaughter of the "three Browns" who came over in the Mayflower. She was born in North Adams, Mass., Feb. 26, 1785, and removed to Rochester in 1816.
Mindwell's life is nicely documented in an article entitied "A Life of Ninety-Seven Years," which appeared3031 in the Rochester (NY) Daily Union & Advertiser, Feb 24, 1882, just one year plus a day before Mindwell passed away. That article, largely narrated by Mindwell herself, and referring to a family Bible in her possession, mentions all seven children and the years of their birth and, for those who died prior to the article's printing, the years of their death. Of primary significance is the mention of son James H Veazie, who emigrated to Mississippi.
