Then Cousin Link put us in touch with Cousin Eleanor Mayfarth (2551), whose ancestor, Rev. James Veazey (152), came through Pope County, Arkansas. We have a new email cousin who is descended from his daughter, Lucretia Ann Veazey (403), who we hope will join us for this reunion.
And then there is another Abner Veasey, whom we believe is a descendant of the James Veazey, Jr. and Ann Johnson, who shows up in Drew County, Arkansas. He and his descendants are mentioned frequently in the Drew County History. And there is the J. C. Veazey family of Cotton Plant, who migrated from Tate County, MS.
I hope I haven't overlooked a group, but if so, let me know about it. I need help from descendants of all of these groups to give me some of the background on those families to use in the reunion booklet. We will give these ancestors some historical perspective!
