Veazey's in Louisiana

I come from the Pecan Island, Louisiana Veazey's. My father is James Glen Veazey. My grandfather is Jacob Glen Veazey. My great-grandfather was Ulysse Veazey. My great-great grandfather was Theodore Andre Veazey. It was strange to read about so many Veazey's - it's not a common name down here!

Veazey in Louisiana


I stumbled across your site and am very interested to see if you have a connection to my great-great grandmother. Her name was Mathilde Eugenia Veazey from St. Martinsville, Louisiana. She married David John Reid in 1845 and ended up in Lake Charles. Any information about her family would be appreciated.

Hoping to find a link?

I have just begun the search into my family lineage, and I was so pleased (I actually clapped!) to find the Veazey-Veasey website! I couldn't believe I could be so lucky. My link to the Veasey name is through my grandfather, Wallace Vandergriff Veasey who resided in Alabama. His siblings were Charles, Harry (or Harold), and Imogene. I am at a loss as to who my great-grandparents were, as he never spoke of them. I am particulary interested in the Vandergriff connection, but would love to trace the Veasey line as well.
Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Nancy Veazey & John Hamilton

My Great-great-grandparents, John Hamilton & Nancy Veazey were married in Saline Co. Arkansas, near Sheridan, Arkansas on July 27, 1853. The 1860 Saline Co. census shows John Veazy, age 65, living with John & Nancy Hamilton. I have much information on some of the children, but nothing more on Nancy Veazey. Thank you for providing this site.

I was just visiting and you have worked extremely hard and the reward is outstanding for the work and what pride. This is such a pleasing site to see. I have connections with the Veazey family in St. Amant, Louisiana; my step-mom. They are such a wonderful family, warm and made my family of four feel like we were always in the fold. Wish all the families in the world could be so friendly. I know now that it was an honor for me to meet and get to love this special family in Louisiana, and I am very thankful.

Alnwick Castle, County of Northumberland, England

Well, my family and I did indeed visit Alnwick Castle in Northumberland, England on our vacation to the British Isles........Oh my, what an imposing structure, it actually took my breath away, just knowing that in our past, this place could have very well been awarded to an ancestor of ours. It is pronounced "Ahnick" by the residents that live in the delightful village that surrounds the castle. We took numerous pictures and anyone that's interested in seeing what it looks like, I will scan them too you. We drove (on the wrong side of the road!) about 1200 miles in 7 short days including visits to Scotland, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Wales and a very large portion of England. We had a wonderful time and I would encourage any and all to visit "our" roots and see for yourselves.

Hi Ann - My mother received one of your newsletters and passed it on to me. What a nice surprise! Mom & Dad, Charles Veazey, divorced when I was only 5 and I had little contact with the Veazey family early on but became very close the last few years of his life.

The Warwickshire (England) Veaseys

Hello Ann,
I'm seriously impressed with this vast number of American "cousins" and the fascinating story of the American line. I am directly descended from John Vesey, a miller, of Peatling Magna, Leicestershire, England, who produced four sons, amongst them my 7xGreat grandfather, Abraham,(bapt.1660) who married Sarah Snow in Harborough Magna, Warwickshire, in 1687. I too have a huge database on the Warwickshire/Leics Veaseys,and the name generally, and I wonder if you have any inkling where the American branch sprang from originally.
Did you know that there was a Bishop Veasey in Warwickshire in the 15th century? His name was actually Harmon, but apparently he took on his mother's family name.
Best wishes,
Diane Lindsay

Hello. I am grandson of Steven Logan Veasey of Wake Co., NC formerly of Durham and Granville Co. Currently I live in Bear, DE so I guess I have taken the family back almost to its U.S. roots of Cecil Co. MD. Oddly enough, my grandfather Clifton Slaughter was from Stem, NC and later moved to Wake Co. where my parents met. My grandfathers did not know one another earlier, but had in fact lived in the same house in Granville county at different times! The Slaughters are of the Jacob Slaughter crowd formerly of Gemantown (Philadelphia) PA. Funny how one keeps stumbling over bones!
Thanks for the nice web page.

Margaret Veazey Beasley

My grandmother was Margaret S. Veazey, born July 3, 1885, married Frank Beasley (9/15/1878 - 6/2/1957) of Granville Co. NC and moved to Richmond VA in early 1900s. She had sons Clifford M., FrankJr., Eugene, and Leonard C. Beasley. She returned to NC in 1918 to nurse her mother, who was sick with the great post-war influenza epidemic, contracted the flu herself, died Jan. 7, 1919, and was buried in Oakwood Cemetery, Richmond. I believe her mother died about that time as well.

Unfortunately, that's all I know about my Veazey ancestry, but I'm hoping to learn much more.

Finally found my Veazey Roots

My Grandmother, Wilmoth Lee Golay Nagle started the search for our family roots about 20 years ago. She was never able to find the names of her grandmother's parents. Her grandmother was Samantha B. Veazey who married Henry Newton Alexander in August of 1867. She was still searching for their names when she died in 1993. It was one of the saddest days of my life as my grandmother and I were very close. I promised her then that I would carry on the search for our family heritage. I was able to trace the Alexander side of the family back to the 800's AD in Scotland and all the relations to the royal families of Europe. I wish she could have been alive to see all of this coming together.
I came across this web site purely by accident while searching other sites for Veazey's. There were so few leads to be followed that I was beginning to lose hope of ever finding Samantha's parents and the rest of her ancestors.

Veasey/veazey family

I am a decendent of the Veasey family, as yet not thoroughly documented. The name Veazey (Veasy) has carried through the maternal side of my father's family for many generations. My father is Melville Wayne Cummins. His grandfather was Robert Veasy Alexander Jr.. R.V. Alexander, Sr. and Andrew Alexander (both buried in Sullivan County, MO are further ancestors.) We believe that Andrew's father was Robert Veasy, son of Andrew Alexander, who was a son of Robert Alexander who married Lucy Veazey of Cecil County, Md.

We are now researching this Veazey line. Andrew Alexander, (father of R.V. Sr.) married Phoebe LaRue in Virginia. The family migrated to Coles County, ILL, Sullivan County, MO and on to Washington State.

message from Ann Drown about Ezekiel L. Veazey and Jesse Veazey-Attala County, MS

Thank you for the information you provided Ann Drown. Can you tell me if Ezekiel is a direct descedant of John Veazey from Essex, England? I am interested in tracing the lineage and want to know if I'm on the right track. Any other information concerning this family would be appreciated.

Great site Ann,
I am a second generation Texan. My dad was James
Sidney Veazey, born in Salina, Texas in 1914. His
dad was Jefferson Spencer Veazey, born either in
Oklahoma or Arkansas. My dad always told me that
our decendents came out of Alabama. I am just now
starting my own search. Thanks.

Article you sent Miriam (Jo) Hall

Great tribute and linkage to roots. Can we either link to it or put it on the Vanessa Louise Hall Memorial Scholarship website under McMannen. Thanks for all that you do with the history of the Veazey family.

Hi, Ann. Enjoyed your webpage!

The book Kyle Kendrick mentioned is "COSSART OR
COZART", by Mary Ethel TILLEY.

There is, also, a compilation by Norene Cox BROWN:
1985. This family is connected to the NC family.

I do research in Granville, Caswell, Orange, & Person Cos., NC. Some of the family names are:

Are you aware of Gloria (ODOM) TROMMLER, who did

Veazey/Veasey Reunion

Thank you for finding my e-mail address. I just married into the Veazey family September 20, 1997. The family I married into is rather large and I am sure that they would love to know more about the Veazey history.

Great page. I am working on my Davis side. Have "we" tied your Davis family
with my Davis family from Warren County other than through Mary Exxum Burt Veazey and
Ruth Anne Fisher Veazey?

Hello cousin,
Received the book you sent, today. I found it very interesting. I haven't read to much of it yet. The military keeps me very busy so most of my free time is spent with the family. I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the book.
I'm so glad dad found you on the net. It's the only thing he talks about these days. The fact that he found you has perked him up alot. I guess he told you his health is not all that good. Well need to stop yacking and get to work. Thanks again for the book.

Hello and thanks!

Dear Ann,

My dad, Haywood Daniel Veasey, was the genealogist in my branch of the family for many years. He's now in his eighty's and unable to do much anymore. I'm truly glad to learn about your book and the work that it represents and I'm sure dad will be too.

How can I get a copy of the book?

Thanks again,

Bill Veasey (a name that I used to think was fairly unique!)

Hello Ann

It's great to hear of this site. It's really neat. Sorry I haven't been able to come to too many reunions since moving to Texas, but I'm keeping up with the information. Keep up the good work. By the way, there is an addition to my immediate family. Our son, Gary L., Jr (b.1/10/74) married Leigh Anne Smith (b.4/27/74 in Charlotte, NC). They were married in Charlotte on 9/23/95. Her parents, Larry and Brenda Smith are from Abermarle, NC, and now reside in Charlotte. Gary, Jr. graduated from UNCC in May 1997 with a BA in Graphic Design & Illustration. Leigh Anne graduated from CCC in May 1995 with a diploma in Dential Hygiene.

That's about all the new news. Hope to keep in touch.

Love, Gary (Link's eldest)

Well Ann, you made it to the NET...


You finnally made it to the Net and I must say that you have made a "GRAND" entrance. This is a very nice WEB Page. I really believe that some of the mysteries will begin to be solved because of this NET presence. It's been ages since we talked. I am one of the lost Veazey's, probably descended from the Pennsylvania clan. Have been in contact with Dennis A. and was unable to come up with any connections. You already have all of my family research in your files. We are currently living in Texas. Please E'mail me whenever you have any kind of info that might be helpful in my research...

Thanks for all you've done & continue to do,

Looking forward to meeting you in person in TN in '98

I have met some new PRICE/VEAZEY descendants who came out of Tallapoosa Co., AL. Will bring copies to TN in June for your perusal. The oldest is John Henry Veazey b 1876 and m. Emma Jane Thomas. Do you already have this information?
I like your web site and look forward to meeting more VEAZEY/ VEASEYs.

First time visitor

Your web site is very comprehensive, Ann. I first heard of you last year when a gentleman who was passing through Denver ( I've forgotten his name, but his last name was a Veazey) called me out of the blue. He said that whenever he visited a new city he would call all of the Veazey's in the phone book just to check if they were related or not. He told me about the reunion each year and gave me your address. I have just begun my research into my family background. I'm just at the beginning of a long journey. Its nice to meet other "travelers" along the way.
