443. John7 Wallingford (Aaron6, John5, John4, John3, John2, Nicholas1) was born in Maine say 1802. (He was 50 in the 1850 census of Lebanon, Maine, implying birth in 1800, but as his probable parents didn't marry until at least 1801, we will assume that to be incorrect. He may also belong to another Wallingford family entirely, of course.)

He married Susan, by 1824. (Based on the age of their oldest child in the 1850 census of Lebanon.)

Susan was born about 1797, in Maine. (Based on the 1850 census of Lebanon.)

Shackford says the son of Aaron was John O. Wallingford and says that he died in Farmington, N.H. on 26 February 1888. I believe that this is probably a different John, who was enumerated in the 1850-70 censuses of Farmington as John D. Wallingford, with wife Susan. Later censuses haven't been checked yet. It would be a simple error to read John D. as John O. Confusion arises because there are two John and Susan Wallingford couples at the same time in two diffreent towns. In the 1850 census of Lebanon, Maine a John and Susan Wallingford, aged 50 and 53 respectively, appear next door to Aaron. John was a farmer and included no real estate value so he may very well have been living with Aaron yet enumerated as the head of his own household.(2545) This is likely to be the son of Aaron, but with so many Wallingford families in this part of Lebanon it could very well be someone else. For the time being it will be assumed that this is the son of Aaron. The John D./John O. Wallingford appears in the 1850 census of Farmington, N.H., also with a wife Susan, but he is ten years younger than the Lebanon John, and his wife Susan 11 years younger than the Lebanon Susan.(2546) They appear together in the next two censuses of Farmington as well, while the Lebanon John and Susan don't again appear in Lebanon in either of the next two censuses.

John Wallingford and Susan had the following children:

child 590 i. Marion8 Wallingford was born in Maine in 1825. (Based on the 1850 census of Lebanon, Maine.)

child 591 ii. Martha J. Wallingford was born in Maine about 1830. (Based on the 1850 census of Lebanon.) She may be the Martha J. Wallingford of Lebanon, Maine who married on 18 May 1851 in Farmington, N.H., John E. Keniston or Kennerson of Alton, N.H.(2547) It may also be the "other" Martha J., daughter of the "other" John and Susan Wallingford. There is much confusion in these two families due to their various appearances in census records, and they may, in fact, be the same family. There is even another Martha J. Wallingford, this time in the 1850 census of Somersworth, aged 16, born in Maine and living with the family of Samuel and Ann (Wallingford) Randall.(2548)

child 592 iii. Olive Wallingford was born in Maine about 1832. (Based on the 1850 census of Lebanon, Maine.)
