Affidavit of Mary White, wife of Daniel White, to be used in an application for the distribution of the personal estate of Joseph Veazie, late of Providence, Rhode Island, dec’d.
Mary White, being duly sworn, on oath deposes and says:
I reside in Weymouth, in the county of Norfolk and Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and am the wife of Daniel White, of said Weymouth. My age is seventy three years. I am the daughter of Silas Veazie formerly of Braintree in said County, who died Nov. 19, 1826 aged seventy-four years, and was the sixth child of Benjamin and Mary Veazie, formerly of Braintree aforesaid. I used to visit often when a child at my grandfather’s house, and remember him and my grandmother very distinctly. He died on the seventh of March A.D. 1802, and she on the twenty fifth of January A.D. 1806. Their children, my uncles and aunts, whom I knew and remember, were as follows: Lemuel, Benjamin, Sarah, John, Mary, Joseph and Susan. There was also, as I have benn told, a son Henry, who died young and unmarried. My Aunts Mary and Susan both died unmarried and without children, the former in the year 1826, and the latter in the year 1805?. The others were married and all left surviving children. My uncle Benjamin went to Providence, R. I. when a young man, at about the time of the Revolutionary War, where he spent the remainder of his life. His son, the late Joseph Veazie, of Providence, during the latter part of his life, occasionally visited his and my relatives in Braintree and Quincy in this State, and, a few years before his desease, caused to be erected at his own expense in the old churchyard of the First Parish in Braintree five monumental slabs, in memory of his and my grandfatherBenjamin Veazie, and grandmother Mary Veazie, our Aunts Mary and Susan Veazie, and our Uncle Joseph.
My uncle Joseph married and left children. His only next of kin at the present time, to my best knowledge and belief, are a son and two daughters, viz: Benjamin, now living in said Braintree, Betsey living in Weymouth aforesaid, and Susan, residing in Walpole, in the State of New Hampshire. Benjamin and Betsey have never been married.
My uncle Lemuel lived and died in Braintree, and his descendants now reside in that place and vicinity.
Uncle John left Braintree when a young man, at about the same time that Uncle Benjamin left, lived and did business for a while in Boston, and afterwards, as I have been informed, removed to North Adams in this State, where he spent the rest of his life.
Aunt Sarah married Gaius Thayer, of Braintree, and died in Boston, leaving descendants now living.
My Father, Silas Veazie, married Abigail Walker. Their children were Lydia W., Abigail, Sarah and myself.
My sister Lydia W. married Joshua T. Ford, of Duxbury, in this State, and deceased in the year 1866, leaving one son now living.
Sister Abigail married and left three children now living, viz: Maria Keene, wife of William Keene, of Marshfield, Marsha Parry, wife of John T. Parry, of Pembroke, and Abigail S? Magoon, wife of Martin Magoon, of said Pembroke, and all in this State.
Sister Sarah married, and had three children, two of whom survived her and are now living, viz: Luther Thayer, and Susanna, wife of Tho’s. Fogg, both of said Braintree. Her daughter Sarah died young and unmarried.
