In 1930 Richard's wife Mary Agnes is living with their son, Grady. And Richard is in Lincoln Co, TN listed as R. A. Vield. He is age 65 and married to Mary age 53. This Mary should be the one Richard's grandchildren called Grandma Bunch. In 1932 his grandson, Hoyt N. Frasier, wrote a letter to his Grandma Stone and mentioned that he was helping his grandpa Veal farm. He also said Grandma Bunch was running a cafe. The 1930 census does not mention a cafe. Richard is a farmer.

Doc1050 - Richmon Veal received 160.7 acres for homestead farm in Franklin County, AL on May 14, 1906.

One source says Richard is buried at Fairview Cemetery, Marshall Co, AL. But I've not been able to find him there.

Thomas Nathaniel Frasier was born to Thomas Nathaniel and Mary Magdeline (Slaton) Frasier on November 4, 1887, in Albertville, Marshall County, Alabama. Although his father's death is listed as 1888, his mother said he was born a few months after his fathers death from typhoid. T.N. had only one eye. When he was 12 years old he put fire crackers in a hollow log and closed it up. He lit the fuse which was not quite long enough and the log exploded and a piece hit his eye and destroyed it.

He loved fox hunting although his daughter in law, Louise Weir Frasier said he didn't really hunt. He only went out into the woods to get away from Mollie for awhile.  He made moonshine for his own use and he always made sure Molly had a small bottle in the kitchen for "medicinal purposes".

He married Mollie Belle Veal in 1909 in Franklin County, Alabama. He lived on land left to him by his father until his stepfather bought it and he bought a farm in DeKalb County, Alabama (Rainsville) in 1936.
