Fifth Generation

170. Jemima5 Wallingford (Jonathan4, Nicholas3, Nicholas2, Nicholas1) was born in Bradford, Essex County, Massachusetts 25 December 1742.(1343) Jemima died 28 August 1792, in Haverhill, Essex County, Massachusetts.(1344)

She married John Edwards III, 2 April 1761, in Haverhill, Essex County, Massachusetts.(1345) She was "of Bradford" at the time of their marriage.

John was born 28 October 1738, in Haverhill, Essex County, Massachusetts.(1346) John was the son of John Edwards and Elizabeth Crockett. John died in 1789.(1347) He was likely alive on 6 January 1789 when a John Edwards, yeoman, of Haverhill, gave bond for David Wallingford, yeoman, of Hollis, N.H., for the administration of the estate of Martha Wallingford of Haverhill, widow, deceased intestate.(1348) David was presumably his brother in law, and Martha his mother-in-law. He was certainly deceased by 1792 because Jemima is called "widow" on her death record in that year. He was a cooper in Haverhill, Mass.(1349)

Jemima Wallingford and John Edwards III had the following children:

child 265 i. Elizabeth6 Edwards was born in Haverhill, Essex County, Massachusetts 28 April 1762.(1350) She may be the Elizabeth Edwards who married William Burk in Haverhill on 29 December 1786.(1351)

child 266 ii. John Edwards IV was born in Bradford, Essex County, Massachusetts 14 April 1764.(1352) The Haverhill vital records state that he was born "at Bradford".

child 267 iii. Jonathan Edwards was born in Haverhill, Essex County, Massachusetts 14 July 1766.(1353)

child 268 iv. William Edwards was born in Haverhill, Essex County, Massachusetts 15 September 1768.(1354) He may be the William Edwards who married Ruth Gile in Haverhill on 26 November 1790.(1355)

child 269 v. David Edwards was born in Haverhill, Essex County, Massachusetts 5 November 1770.(1356)

child 270 vi. Timothy Edwards was born in Haverhill, Essex County, Massachusetts 15 May 1773.(1357)

child 275 xi. Ebenezer Blodgett Edwards was born in Haverhill, Essex County, Massachusetts 30 November 1784.(1363) The published Haverhill vital records state that a copy of the town records had his name written as "Elemy", which probably explains why Shackford has this child as a female named "Elemay Blodgett".

child 276 xii. Ebenezer Edwards was born in Haverhill, Essex County, Massachusetts 23 December 1788.(1364)
