449. Ira7 Wallingford (Samuel6, David5, Peter4, John3, John2, Nicholas1) was born in Milton, Strafford County, New Hampshire 13 or 18 November 1823.(2622) (His gravestone says he died in 1853 aged 30, and Shackford says he died in November on his 30th birthday.(2623) Ira's son Thomas was one of Shackford's informants, so this information is probably true.) Ira died 13 or 18 November 1853, probably in Milton, N.H..(2624) He was buried in the Plummer-Jones-Palmer Cemetery on Plummer's Ridge in Milton, N.H.

He married Delania D. Thompson, 13 May 1848, in Dover, Strafford County, New Hampshire.(2625) They were married by the Rev. J.G. Forman, and were both from Dover.

Delaney was born about 1826, in Sandwich, Strafford County, New Hampshire.(2626) (Gravestone, which also gives names of her parents, except for her mother's maiden name which comes from Shackford.) Delaney was the daughter of Samuel Thompson and Betsey Seavey.

Delaney died 28 January 1860, probably in Milton, N.H..(2627) She was buried in the Plummer-Jones-Palmer Cemetery on Plummer's Ridge in Milton, N.H.

Her name was spelled Delana on her tombstone and Delane on that of her son Frank. Is she the Delany Wallingford of Milton who married in Sanford, Maine, 8 June 1856, Albert Mason of Sandwich?(2628) This may explain where the family was in the 1860 census if they had gone to Sandwich to live with Albert Mason.

In the 1850 census of Milton Ira is a 26-year old farmer, born N.H., with a farm worth $1000, which seems to be a little better than average for its time. With him is his wife "Delana", age 24 born N.H., and son Thomas C., age 2, born N.H. His brother David and family are living on the same farm.(2629) Both Ira and Delania died before the next census in 1860, and their children have not been located in that census in N.H.

Ira Wallingford and Delania D. Thompson had the following children:

child + 618 i. Thomas Calvin Neal8 Wallingford was born 23 July 1848.

child 619 ii. Frank Edwin Wallingford was born in Milton, Strafford County, New Hampshire in June 1851.(2630) Frank died of general paresis, 28 March 1914, at Boston State Hospital, in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts.(2631) He was buried in the Plummer-Jones-Palmer Cemetery on Plummer's Ridge in Milton, N.H.(2632) He married twice.

He married first, Louisa F. Webster, 25 March 1875, in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts.(2633) At the time of their marriage Frank was a livery stable keeper and they were both living in Boston.

Louisa was born about 1854/55, in New York, New York. Her birth info and parentage comes from her marriage record. Louisa was the daughter of George Webster and Mary.

Louisa died in England.(2634) He married second, Ellen F. Hennessey, 4 May 1910, in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts.(2635) At the time of their marriage Frank was a horse dealer living at "Merrimac House" in Boston and Ellen was living at 88 High St. in Boston.

Ellen was born about 1871/72, in Ireland. Birth place and parentage are from her marriage records, in which she was aged 38 (in 1910) and 44 (in 1917). Ellen was the daughter of William Hennessey and Ellen Daley.

After he was orphaned in 1860 he went to live on the farm of Charles Jones of Milton, a rather prosperous individual who in 1860 had a farm worth $16,000 and in 1870 worth $33,000, according to the censuses. Frank was listed in the Jones household in both years, the second time as an 18-year old farm labourer, born in N.H.(2637) Charles Jones may be a relation, given that Frank's uncle David Wallingford married a Susan A. Jones. Frank lived in Newton and Brighton, Mass. and was a dealer in horses for a "Mr. Snow". He may have married a second time. He had no children.(2638) His death record gave his occupation as horse dealer, and his father's name was given as Calvin Wallingford. This is probably confused with his brother Calvin.

child 620 iii. Ira Wallingford was born in Milton, Strafford County, New Hampshire 4 August 1853.(2639) His marriage record says he was born in Dover. Ira died 28 September 1909, in Milton, Strafford County, New Hampshire.(2640) He was buried in the Plummer-Jones-Palmer Cemetery on Plummer's Ridge in Milton.(2641) He married Georgietta Tainter, 13 January 1897, in Watertown, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.(2642) When they were married Ira was a carriage agent living in Boston and Georgietta was living in Watertown.

Georgietta was born 24 October 1850, in Watertown, Middlesex County, Massachusetts. Shackford says her maiden name was Tainton and her mother's maiden name was Langer.(2643) On her marriage record these appear to be Tainter and Sanger. A check of her family in the 1860 census of Watertown, Mass. shows it clearly to be Tainter, and there is a Sanger living in the family as well.(2644) Georgietta was the daughter of George Tainter and Abigail Sanger.

The last letter of her surname is difficult to read in Shackford's book because it has been written over. It may be "r".

After he was orphaned in 1860 he went to live with his uncle Zimri Wallingford in Dover, where he appears on the 1860 census.(2645) Ira was a Carriage Agent for the Armstrong Company in Boston. They had no children.(2646)
