Massa Mary Veatch 1782-1854 Hardy Co, WV Parents
I have a Hardy County marriage record dated 24 March 1805 of my ancestor Thomas Bryan 1782-1840 to Massa Veatch 1782-1854 (dates from Springfield WV cemetery stone). Census records have them in Hardy Co 1830, Harrison Co 1840 and as a widow Mary in Hampshire Co 1850 with her daughters. A Hardy Co deed book Vol 2 has a 21 May 1791 entry for” 100 acres to Hanson Veatch on the South Branch Manor for 20 shillings per acre per year. Farmlet to said Hanson and daughters Mary Veatch and Nancy Veatch” which puts Hanson in the area at the right time. This could be the Hanson Veatch 1764-1835, son of Thomas 1736-1817. Is there someone who would be able to help me find who Massa Mary Veatch parents might be? Thank you for any assistance.
