Mrs Emma Veal(e) died at her residence, 17 Princes Street, St Just on Sunday, February 11, 1906. Amongst her mourners were her son, James, her sister, Mrs W. Hutchens, nieces, Misses C. and M. Hutchens, and nephew, Mr F. Hutchens. Two sons, Rd. Veal and W. Veal were living in Tamarack, Michigan, U.S.A. Now I believe that Emma’s husband was James Veal(e) born 16 Jan 1857 at Kelynack, Cornwall and baptised 31 Oct 1858 at St Just in Penwith; F: William Veal; M: Mary Jane Harvey. In the 1880 US Census James (23) and Emma Veal (17) and their one-year-old son, James are living with her parents, George (31) and Anna Maria (33) Perrow, and siblings Richard, Annie, Freddie and Minnie Perrow. Note: the father George seems a bit young to be Emma’s biological father. In the 1891 England Census, Emma Veal is living at Princes Street, St Just with her three sons: James (10), Richard (9) and William (7) who were all born in Colorado. Emma is given as born at Liskeard, Cornwall and is aged 27. Her sister, Annie Payne (17) and her son, Freddy Payne (2) are also living with her: Annie Payne listed as born in Colorado and Freddy born in St Just. In the 1900 US Census, James (38) and Emma (36) Veal are living at Cripple Creek, Teller, Colorado with their three sons: James (17), Richard (14), and William T Veal (13). James is stated to be born in England, but Emma and her three sons are listed as born in Colorado. The 1901 England Census has Emma Veal (37) living at 6 Bosorn Road, St Just, with sons, Richard (19) and William T. (17) and nephew, Frederick Payne (12). Emma is shown as born at Liskeard, her sons born in Colorado and her nephew at St Just. To make things more confusing, on young Richard Veale’s marriage certificate his parents are listed as James and Emma Veale and Emma’s maiden name is given as Payne (not Perrow). Richard married Anna Moriarty at Butte, Silver Bow, Montana on 15 Apr 1907. Now Emma’s supposed parents are George and Hannah/Anna Maria Warmington and I have found a marriage for them on 5 Sep 1872 in St Gluvius, Penryn, Cornwall, but that’s well after the birth of both Emma and her brother Richard (born abt. 1867). Note: George is stated to be a bachelor and Hannah is stated to be a spinster. So are Emma and Richard the children of Anna/ Hanna Maria and someone other than George Perrow? George was born at Phillack about 1849 to George Perrow and Elizabeth Corin. And Hannah Maria Warmington was baptised 4 Mar 1842 at St Gluvias, her parents being Richard Warmington and Sarah Grimaldi. I cannot find a baptism for an Emma Perrow but I have found one for an Emma Payne bap 8 Nov 1864 at Menheniot; F: Richard Payne; M: Anna Maria Goldsworthy. Menheniot is 3.2 miles from Lisekard. In addition, the same parents baptised a Richard Payne at Menheniot on 18 Mar 1867. I am totally confused and confusicated. What is going on with this lot?
