522. Arthur Augustus8 Wallingford (E. Gilbert7, David6, David5, Jonathan4, Nicholas3, Nicholas2, Nicholas1) was born in Stanstead, Quebec, Canada about 1844/45. His marriage record states that he was age 30 on May 12, 1875, implying birth between 11 May 1844 and 12 May 1845. His father's first wife died 21 July 1845 so if his age at marriage is correct he would be the son of his father's first wife Emeline, despite the fact that he listed his mother as Minerva on his marriage record. Arthur died of phthisis, 21 April 1877, in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts.(2840)
He married Nancy S. McGovern, 12 May 1875, in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts.(2841) Arthur was a police officer and they were both living in Boston at the time of their marriage. It was Nancy's second marriage.
Nancy was born about 1844/45, in Milford, Worcester County, Massachusetts. Her own death record and the death record of her daughter Ella states that she was born in Holliston, Mass., but her own marriage record to Arthur Wallingford states that she was born in Milford, Mass., aged 30. Parentage comes from her death record, which states that she was aged 90 and that her parents were born in Ireland. No record of her birth can be found in the Mass. Vital Records birth indexes. Nancy was the daughter of James McGovern and Sarah Leach.
Nancy died 7 June 1935, at home, 24 Central St., in Milford, Worcester County, Massachusetts.(2842) Her death was caused by myocarditis of the left front femur, caused when she stumbled on a door-sill and fell. She was buried on June 10th in St. Mary's cemetery in Milford. They were living at 12 Washington St. in Boston when their daughter Ella died in June 1877. Arthur was a policeman living at 28 Langdon St. in Boston when he died in April 1877. When Nancy died in 1935 she was living at 24 Central St. in Milford, and had been living in Milford for the past twenty years. Her occupation was listed as housewife, and it stated that she last worked at this occupation in March of 1925, having done it for 60 years. The informant on her death certificate was J. Edward Neelon of the same address, who was called her son, presumably by her first marriage to James Kneeland.
