357. Elizabeth6 Wallingford (Amos5, Ebenezer4, Col. Thomas3, John2, Nicholas1) was born in Somersworth, Strafford County, New Hampshire 9 October 1789. (IGI) Betsy died 5 January 1879.(2151)

She married Nathaniel Green Pike, 18 October 1814, in Rochester, Strafford County, New Hampshire.(2152) They were both of Somersworth at the time of their marriage.

Nathaniel was born 13 January 1783, probably in Somersworth, New Hampshire.(2153) Nathaniel was the son of John Pike and Martha Trevitt. Nathaniel died 9 May 1858.(2154) He was the grandson of the Rev. James Pike of Somersworth and lived in his old house near Salmon Falls (now Rollinsford), N.H., on the old road to Dover via the old Somersworth meeting house, which was destroyed by fire in the mid 1800s.(2155)

When the 1860 and 1870 censuses were taken she was living with her son Amos and his family in Rollinsford, N.H.(2156) A recently published (1995) Pike Genealogy(2157) assigns to this couple two additional children: Phebe Pike (1824-1833) and Joseph Trevitt Pike, born 22 November 1785. This additional "son" was only two years younger than his purported father! Needless to say he doesn't belong to this family, and in fact is Daniel's brother(2158). Phebe could possibly belong here so has been added.

Elizabeth Wallingford and Nathaniel Green Pike had the following children:

child 478 i. Martha C.7 Pike was born in New Hampshire 1 January 1816.(2159) (Place is from 1860 and 1870 censuses) Martha died in 1891.(2160) She was buried in the Salmon Falls old town cemetery in Rollinsford, N.H.

She was living with her brother Amos and his family in Rollinsford in 1860 and 1870.(2161) She is called Martha Pike on her gravestone, which means she probably never married.

child 479 ii. John Gilman Pike was born in Somersworth, Strafford County, New Hampshire 17 August 1817.(2162) Pike Genealogy says he was born at "Rollinsford Junction...in the house which was built by his great-grandfather, Reverend James Pike". It also calls him John Gordon Pike while the Wentworth Genealogy calls him John Gilman Pike. The latter source being the more reliable it will be believed.(2163) John died in 1907, in Dover, Strafford County, New Hampshire.(2164) He married twice. He married first, Mary Yetton Cressey, 15 July 1847.(2165) Mary was born about 1820. (Based on her age at death)

Mary died 23 May 1866.(2166) He married second, Alice W. Ham, after May 1866.(2167) She was married once before to a man named Horne. The Wentworth Genealogy calls her "Alice W. (Ham) Horne(2168) while the Pike Genealogy calls her "Mrs. Alice (Horn) Waterhouse".(2169) John was a physician, receiving his M.D. at Bowdoin College in 1847. He practiced in Durham, Dover and Rollinsford, N.H., as well as in Boston, Mass., and was also a town clerk in Rollinsford. He was blind during the last ten years of his life. He had three children by his first wife.(2170)

child 480 iii. Amos Wallingford Pike was born in Somersworth, Strafford County, New Hampshire 15 December 1819.(2171) The Rollinsford Town Report record of his death stated that he was born in Rollinsford, but as it wasn't a town at that point we'll assume he was actually born in Somersworth, part of which later became Rollinsford. Amos died of Bright's Disease, 30 December 1898, probably in Rollinsford, N.H..(2172) He was buried in the Salmon Falls old town cemetery in Rollinsford, N.H.(2173) He married Elizabeth M. Chadbourne, 20 May 1844.(2174)

Elizabeth was born about 1821, in Maine. (Based on the 1860 and 1870 censuses) Elizabeth was the daughter of James Chadbourne and Susanna McIntire.

Elizabeth graduated from Berwick Academy in 1832.(2175)

In 1860 and 1870 the family was living in Rollinsford, N.H. Amos's mother Betsy and aunt Polly Wallingford were living with them. Amos was a farmer.(2176) One of his sons, Robert Gordon Pike, 1851-1917, was a Chief Justice of the Superior Court of N.H.(2177) He administered his father-in-law's will in 1852, and his mother-in-law died at their home in Somersworth, leaving Elizabeth $600 and some real estate.(2178) They had three children in all.Elizabeth Chadbourne was from South Berwick, Maine.(2179) The Pike Genealogy, an unreliable source, states that he married second, Mrs. Julia (Hubbard) Shaw.(2180)

child 481 iv. Phebe Pike was born in 1824.(2181) Phebe died in 1833.(2182)
