I'm looking for information on Edward Vezeau who died in East St. Louis, Illinois around 1945. During his life, he lived near Sandusky, OH, Hammond, IN, and then E. St. Louis, IL. His wife was Suzette who died in Hammond, IN around 1933. They had two children - Kenneth Fredrick and Donald Edward. I am Kenneth's grandson.

I just let you know that Edward Vezeau was born in St. Clair Co. Illinois around 1880. He was married to Catherine Koelker in 11-24-1904,they had four children: three daughters and a son. Edward Vezeau died in 1955, his wife, Catherine died in 1970. I am researching on my husband's Vezeau family.

Chris I don't believe Kim Mark Compton's Edward Vezeau is YOUR Edward. I went to library in Belleville, IL on research and found East St. Louis Journal Obituary list for Vezeau. I copied my info but only wrote down their other names for future reference. They have an Edward Vezeau, died age 53 yrs., obits in p.3 col.2 01OCT1940 in p.3 col.7 01OCT1940. That would make him born @ 1887. I also have notes for a Kenneth Vezeau from SSDI. Born 05DEC1911 DIED 02SEP1992. Social security issued in IN, last zip 46323. Also included in his notes are parents Edward Vezeau and Suzanne Elizabeth Perry, supposedly related to Admiral Perry. Can't remember who sent me that tidbit of info....sorry. I have a hunch that this Kenneth and this Edward are father son and they belong to you. Let me know what you find out. I like to keep notes on other Vezeau lines so I don't get them confused with mine...(lol)

Apparently there were two different people with the name of Edward Vezeau. My GreatGrandfater, Edward Vezeau, had two sons, one of which was my Grandfather, Kenneth Vezeau.

My GreatGrandmother was Suzette Perry. She died in Hammond, Indiana. My Great Grandfather then moved to St. Louis where he later died. I'm sure he had family down there, but I have yet to connect it.

Very cool!!! Thanks for the info. I did not know my greatgrandmother's middle name. I appreciate your help and will get back with you once I get back into the "mode" of tracing genealogy again. Thanks! Feel free to drop a line.

I have a proof that there is Census of 1930 mentioned Edward Vezeau has wife named Catherine and children: Oliver and Florence. They were related to my husband, Mark Compton's family. Edward Vezeau was Mark's great grandfather. He was born 1880 in Cahokia, Illinois. He died on 1955 in East St. Louis, Illinois.
Please check on Census
Thanks, KImberly Compton
