Description
Civil War-era photograph album, Miller & Burlock, Philadelphia, retailed by McAllister Brother, 728 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, highlights include: Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln, Lieutenant General Ulysses S. Grant, Major General William Tecumseh Sherman, Rev. John C. Backus, along with other family photographs, worn binding, cover detached but present, lacking spine cover, approx 5.75"h, 4"w, 1.5"d, 0.75lbs *Provenance: The Veazey family was a prominent fixture of the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The initial immigrant ancestor was John Veazey, who settled on two tracts of land in Cecil County in the late seventeenth century. Thomas Ward Veazey was born on January 31, 1774 at the family estate Cherry Grove to Edward (c.1730-1784) and Elizabeth [nee de Coursey] (c.1730-1791) Veazey. Thomas was orphaned at a young age, and would receive his education at Washington College, where he graduated in 1795. Thomas married three times to Sarah Worrell (Kent County, Maryland, d.1795), Mary Veazey (d.1810), and Mary Wallace (Elkton, Maryland, 1789-1867). He fathered eleven children. His political career began in 1808 when he served as a presidential elector for James Madison. He later served in the Maryland House of Delegates from 1811 to 1812, relinquishing his seat in the General Assembly to participate in the War of 1812. During the conflict, he commanded militia forces defending Fredericktown in Cecil County, where the town was destroyed by fire during a British raid. After the war, he returned to Cherry Grove as a gentleman planter until in 1833, when he was chosen as a member of the Governor’s Council. In 1835, he was nominated as a candidate for governor, receiving fifty-three out of the seventy-six ballots cast. He was sworn in as the 24th Governor of Maryland on January 14, 1836 and would serve until 1839. His governorship weathered the constitutional crisis of 1837 and is remembered for its successful solution to the reapportionment crisis. His term would represent the last Whig Party administration to hold the Maryland governor’s office. He died on July 1, 1842 at Cherry Grove. This collection of historic items is offered through our consignor from the estate of Katherine Hartley Grauer [nee Craycroft] (1908-1997), great-granddaughter of Col. Thomas Ward Veazey.* Start Price: $40.00
