150. Nathaniel4 Wallingford (James3, James2, Nicholas1) was born in Bradford, Essex County, Massachusetts 26 September 1742.(1297) Nathaniel died 17 September 1776, in Bradford, Essex County, Massachusetts.(1298) The church record of his death describes him as "a young married man". He was described as "deceased" in his father's will of 3 December 1776.(1299)
He married Abigail Savory, 8 September 1768, in Bradford, Essex County, Massachusetts.(1300) Abigail was born 7 November 1748. (Ancestral File) Abigail was the daughter of Chase Savory and Priscilla Hardy.
It is likely the widow Abigail who is enumerated in the 1790 census of Bradford as Abigall Walingsford, living right next door to her mother-in-law Martha. She had been granted one half of the homestead in the estate of her father-in-law. One other female was living with her at the time, perhaps her unmarried daughter Hannah.(1301)
Nathaniel Wallingford and Abigail Savory had the following children:
+ 257 i. Hannah5 Wallingford was born 18 July 1769.
258 ii. Daniel Wallingford was born 19 May 1771.(1302) He was baptized 2 June 1771 in Bradford, Essex County, Massachusetts.(1303) The published Bradford VRs show a death for Daniel, son of Nathaniel, on 19 May 1771. (p.367) Given the date of baptism a few weeks later, could this be an error for a birth record instead? Shackford claims this date as his birth date, so perhaps he checked the original record. Both the "death" record and the baptism come from records of the Bradford Second Congregational Church at East Bradford, afterwards Groveland. He may have been deceased by the time his grandfather James Wallingford wrote his will on 3 December 1776 because his brother Nathaniel was a beneficiary of this will but Daniel was not. On the other hand, neither was his sister Hannah, who apparently was still alive to be married later. This may throw into question, however, the marriage of Hannah. Perhaps she was deceased by this time as well?
+ 259 iii. Nathaniel Wallingford was born 16 February 1776.
