Sarah Childs Veeder raised my g-grandfather (Dr. Major Alber Veeder) and then lived with him and his family after her husband died. M A Veeder was a physician in Lyons NY, and Sarah was technicially his great-aunt. After M A Veeder was born in 1848 his mother died shortly thereafter and M A was moved to his great-uncle's (Gerrit Veeder's) house. In the 1850 census Gerrit Veeder, 58, is head of the household with his wife Mary, 50, and Major A Veeder age 2 and Sarah Childs age 24 in residence. She might have been a nurse or nanny. Mary Veeder died 2 years later and Gerrit married Sarah Childs. In the 1860 census Gerrit is 68 and Sarah Veeder is 34 and M A Veeder is 11. Gerrit is spelled incorrectly in that census, so search on Major Veeder to find it. I am not aware of any children of Gerrit and Sarah. In the 1900 census Sarah Veeder is 73 and living in Lyons, NY with Major A Veeder and his family, including my grandfather. Feel free to e-mail at
