298. Aaron6 Wallingford (John5, John4, John3, John2, Nicholas1) was born in Lebanon, York County, Maine about 1775-78.(2021) He was 75 in the 1850 census, and was reportedly 80 when he died in 1858. Aaron died 27 December 1858, in Lebanon, York County, Maine.(2022)
He married Betsey Downs, after 24 October 1801, probably in Lebanon, Maine.(2023) This was the date of their marriage intention, filed in Lebanon.
Betsey was born about 1775, in Maine. She was 75 in the 1850 census.
She was living in 1850.(2024)
His name shows that he drew school money in District No. 1, in South Lebanon in 1812. He was taxed $36.44 in June 1825. They lived in Wallingford "City" about one and one half miles east from the public highway in South Lebanon.(2025) In the 1850 census of Lebanon Judith and John Colomy, both aged 30, were living with Aaron and Betsey. Aaron was a farmer on a plot of land worth $600.(2026)
He was apparently a member of the local Baptist Society because in August or September 1820 an undated list of the names of the Society that had filed certificates in the Lebanon Town Clerk's Office appears in the town records. Aaron is on that list, as are Moses, Garland and Levi Wallingford, presumably his brothers.(2027)
His children aren't well-accounted for and there is much confusion amongst the members of this generation. Those listed below may well belong to other families, and other children assigned to his brothers may belong to him. Take nothing for proven here. In the 1850 census where Aaron and "Betty" are 75 years old, no children are living in their household, unless Judith and John Colomy, both aged 30 are grandchildren or Judith is a daughter and John her husband. Next door is a John Wallingford, aged 50, then a Henry, aged 35, and next a Stephen aged 40. Stephen is placed here as the son of Aaron, as is the first John, but Henry appears to be son of Aaron's brother Garland due to the fact that living with him is Betsy Wallingford, aged 70, who is probably wife of Garland. For more on this see Henry's record. Why the daughter Ann is placed in this family by the Wallingford Genealogy is presently unknown.

+ 443 i. John7 Wallingford was born say 1802.
+ 444 ii. Stephen Wallingford was born about 1809.
