406. Lyman J.7 Wallingford (David6, David5, Jonathan4, Nicholas3, Nicholas2, Nicholas1) was born in Stanstead, Quebec, Canada 3 April 1825.(2333) The 1850 census says he was born in N.H. but his death certificate says Canada. It also said he was aged 62-6-12 when he died, which calculates to the birth date given here. Lyman died of pneumonia, 15 October 1887, in Lowell, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.(2334)
He married Lucy Ann Shepard, 23 September 1849, in Lowell, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.(2335) At the time of their marriage they were both living in Lowell, and he was employed as a tinplate worker.
Lucy was born 28 October 1823, in Raymond, Rockingham County, New Hampshire. Her date of birth is calculated from her age at death of 82y, 0m, 29d. Her place of birth comes from her marriage and death records. Lucy was the daughter of Jesse Shepard and Mary Robey.
Lucy died of an intestinal obstruction, 26 November 1905, at 6 Osgood St., in Lowell, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, at 82 years of age.(2336) She was buried in Edson Cemetery in Lowell on November 28th.
There is no mention of Lucy Ann as being a child of Jesse and Mary (Robey) Shepard in the 1994 book "Robey Roby Robie : the family history from early England to America" by William Grafton Robey, Jr. On her marriage record it says she was the daughter of Jesse and Mary Shepard, and her death record gives her mother's maiden name as Robey.
Lyman and Lucy were listed in the 1850 census of Lowell, Mass. His occupation was difficult to read and may have read "lensmelter". Another researcher found this so I haven't had a chance to verify it.(2337)
Lyman J. Wallingford and Lucy Ann Shepard had the following child:
528 i. Adeline8 Wallingford.(2338) An Addie Wallingford was the informant on Lucy Ann (Shepard) Wallingford's death certificate in 1905, but no relationship was given. This may be the only evidence that Shackford has for there being a daughter Adeline in this family.
