313. Amos P.6 Wallingford (Jacob5, Peter4, John3, John2, Nicholas1) was born about 1794. (Calculated from age on gravestone of 31y.) Amos died 21 August 1825.(2128) He is buried in the Haven Hill Cemetery in Rochester, N.H.
He married Rhoda Blaisdell, 11 February 1819, in Lebanon, York County, Maine.(2129) He was of Rochester and she was of Lebanon at the time of their marriage. They were married the same day, and by the same person, as William B. Wallingford and Joanna Pierce, but at present there appears no close relationship between Amos and William.
Rhoda was born 2 March 1800, in New Hampshire. (Date calculated from age on gravestone, and place from 1850 census.)
Rhoda died 9 August 1863.(2130) She is buried in the Haven Hill Cemetery in Rochester, N.H. under the name Wallingford beside her first husband Amos.
An Amos Wallingford served in the military during the War of 1812, enlisting in Capt. John Haven's Co. 12 September 1814 and being discharged 29 September 1814.(2131) It may or may not be this Amos. War of 1812 muster rolls on ancestry.com show a Private Amos Wallingford as a part of Waldron's Command, New Hampshrie Militia. Genealogist Winthrop Alexander(2132) speculates that he is also the father of the Amos Wallingford, b. 1815 in Farmington, who moved to Fitzwilliam, N.H. and married an Abigail Merrifield. This Amos is currently listed as unconnected in this genealogy. A Greely Genealogy reportedly says the Fitzwilliam Amos was son of Amos Wallingford and Hannah Horne, so perhaps Amos P. Wallingford was married once before to Hannah Horne?
