      Z. VESEY

      Son of John and Elizabeth Vesey was born in Pickaway Township, Pickaway County, Ohio, November 30, 1923. His parents emigrated from Sussex County, Delaware, and settled on the lower plains of the above named township and died there - the mother in 1831 and the father in 1836. After the death of his parents, the subject of this sketch went to live with his uncle, Gideon Vesey in Fayette County, Ohio, with whom he remained about three years. He then removed to Illinois with his brother-in-law, Hamilton Waples, but remained only a year, when he returned to his native township and commenced working for Abraham Swisher, whose daughter - then Mrs. Catharine Frame - he married, August 11, 1842. He resided in Pickaway about a year after his marriage, when he removed to Franklin County, and located on a farm in Truro township. He soon, however, returned to Pickaway and remained two years, when he again settled in Truro on the same farm on which he had previously located and resided there for sixteen or seventeen years. During the war he resided in Columbus, after which he returned to Truro, where he carried on farming extensively for seven years. In the fall of 1874 he purchased for twenty-four thousand dollars the farm and elegant mansion, at Groveport, of John S. Rarey, the famous horse trainer, to which he removed in the spring of 1875, and in 1891 he moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he died in 1892.

      Mr. Vesey started in business for himself with the fixed purpose of "doing something" to use his own words, and not, Micawber like, of waiting for something to "turn up." He had but sixty-five dollars in money but he possessed what was much more valuable and indispensable to him [illegible] a clear head and ample stock of what may be termed clear grit. He received potential aid from his father-in-law, who helped him, with his name, to obtain whatever credit he desired; but by promptly meeting every obligation contracted, he was soon enabled to dispense with such assistance. During the first four years of his business career he was unable to accumulate any property, but during the next ten years his gains aggregated over forty thousand dollars. From that time forward his accumulation of property was rapid. He owned at one time two thousand acres of land. During the period mentioned, however - years of general business disaster - Mr. Vesey, like almost every man who has been engaged in business on a large scale, has suffered an occasional reverse of fortune. Mr. Vesey was a large stockholder in the old Central Bank, of Columbus, and was elected Vice President of the institution in December 1875. On the death of Captain Nathaniel Merion, in 1877, he was elected his successor, as President of the Bank, which position he filled until April 1, 1879, when the bank was re-organized as the Fourth National. His wife died January 15, 1878, and on September 3rd, the next year he married Mrs. Lizzie Mason, of Fairfield county. Mr. Vesey was the father of five children, all by his first wife, viz: Mary Ellen; Abigail; Irene Sherman: Snyder A; and Laura L., who is dead.
