Re: Ninian Veatch and more
I hope this book passage helps. I found it while trying to connect a grandmother, Massa Veatch as daughter to Jemima's brother Solomon Veatch (1761-).
From American Guthrie & Allie Families by Lawrence Guthrie 1933 Book IV page 605.
"Ninian Veatch, Jr. was a member of the old St. Georges Parish, of the Episcopal Church, was a land and slave owner, and was engaged in growing tobacco.In his will he said -- "I also give to my son John, all my Smith's tools," from which it is inferred that both he and his son, John, plyed the blacksmith's trade.He married Elizabeth ________(maiden name may have been Fraim, that being the middle name of her only daughter).Elizabeth appears to have been deceased at the time he made his will, which was dated May 10, 1785; proved May 5, 1798. (Montgomery Co., MD Wills, liber D. folio 17).The census of Frederick County 1776, gives the names and ages of the members of his family as follows:
"John19"(Maryland Records, by Brumbaugh)
Only John, Solomon and Jemima Fraim Veatch are mentioned in the father's will."
