182. Jacob5 Wallingford (Peter4, John3, John2, Nicholas1) was born probably in Rochester, N.H. by September 1766. He was baptized in Rochetser in September 1766.(1480) Jacob died 1 January 1840.(1481) He is buried in the Haven Hill Cemetery in Rochester, N.H.

He married Abigail Clark, 24 October 1793, in Rochester, Strafford County, New Hampshire. They were married by the Rev. Joseph Haven.(1482) They were both of Rochester at the time they were married.

Abigail was born about May-June 1771, in New Hampshire. (Based on 1850 census and age on gravestone of 81y, 10m.)

Abigail died 8 April 1853, in Rochester, Strafford County, New Hampshire.(1483) She is buried in the Haven Hill Cemetery in Rochester, N.H.

In 1850 she was 78, born in N.H., and living with her grandson Jacob Wallingford in Rochester. It also stated that she was deaf.(1484)

In 1800 his family was enumerated in the census of Rochester with one male under 10, one male between 26 and 45, one female between 26 and 45, and one female aged over 45.(1485) These are Jacob and Abigail, their son Amos, and an older woman who may be the mother of either Jacob or Abigail.

Administration of his estate was granted to Edward Tebbets of Rochester on 25 March 1840. He gave bond with Ebenezer Tebbets and Elizabeth G.Wallingford, both of Rochester.(1486) An inventory was turned in on 4 April showing a homestead farm of 60 acres in Rochester, a field on the main road which was part of the Wentworth farm, and a five acre wood lot in Whitehall Swamp in Rochester.(1487) The widow Abigail was allowed $150 from the estate on 11 April 1840.(1488)

Administration of the estate of Abigail Wallingford late of Milton was granted to David Wallingford of Milton on the first Tuesday of December 1854. David gave bond with Stephen M. Mathes and Cyrus F. Sanborn, both of Rochester.(1489) This Abigail is likely Jacob's widow, and David is probably Jacob's nephew, son of his brother David. If so, this would indicate that Abigail moved in with her nephew in Milton at some point. The inventory of her estate was taken on 6 March 1855.(1490)

Jacob Wallingford and Abigail Clark had the following children:

child + 313 i. Amos P.6 Wallingford was born about 1794.

child 314 ii. Elizabeth G. Wallingford was born about October 1803. (Based on age on gravestone of 77y, 3m.) Elizabeth died 22 January 1881.(1491) She is buried in the Haven Hill Cemetery in Rochester, N.H. She married Jonathan Horne, 3 January 1843, in Rochester, Strafford County, New Hampshire.(1492)

Jonathan was born in 1790.(1493) Jonathan was the son of Moses Horne and Mary Wingate. Jonathan died in 1870.(1494) His parentage comes from the record of his second marriage in Shackford, taken from NHVR. It is not proven that he is the same Jonathan who married Elizabeth Main in 1815. Elizabeth G. Wallingford, daughter of Jacob was baptized in Rochester on 5 September 1824.(1495) "Elizabeth G.W., widow of Jonathan Horne" is buried in the same plot as Jacob and Abigail (Clark) Wallingford so she is assumed to be their daughter. Also in that plot is Amos P. Wallingford, Jacob and Abigail's son, and his wife Rhoda. Her marriage date and place to Jonathan Horne is taken from Shackford, who lists her as an unconnected Wallingford by the name of Eliza. It seems very likely that that marriage applies to this Elizabeth, especially given that Jonathan's first wife died in 1841.
