580. Olive D.8 Wallingford (Henry7, Garland6, John5, John4, John3, John2, Nicholas1) was born probably in Lebanon, Maine in 1843.(3035) (Place is from 1860 census, which agrees with date. Date from gravestone.) Olive died in 1920. She was buried in the Orchard Grove Cemetery in Kittery, Maine.(3036)

She married Samuel Augustus Jackson, 7 February 1865, in Somersworth, Strafford County, New Hampshire.(3037) He was from Kittery and she was from Lebanon, Maine.(3038)

Samuel was born in November 1844, in Maine. (Based on the 1900 census. Gravestone says 1844.)

Samuel died in 1919. He was buried in the Orchard Grove Cemetery in Kittery, Maine.(3039)

Shackford was uncertain of her parentage. There is no Olive living with Henry and Alice Wallingford in the 1850 census of Lebanon, even though she would have been only 7 years old at the time. There is a 13-year Olive Wallingford in the 1850 census of Lebanon living with a Ford family.(3040) This may be the same person with the incorrect age. She is with her parents in 1860, however, aged 17.(3041) There is also an Olive Wallingford, age 17, a "carder" born in Maine and living in Abigail Andrews' boarding house in Somersworth in 1860 along with several other young men and women.(3042) This may be a different Olive entirely or else the same person was enumerated twice. Given that Olive married in Somersworth five years later it seems likely that they are the same person. In the 1880 census Samuel and Olive, a 5-year-old daughter Albertina, and an unnamed 2 month old son were living in Kittery, Maine. Samuel was employed as a carpenter(3043). Who this two month old son was is uncertain, as their son Samuel was born in 1879 according to his gravestone. Also their daughter Albertina was already deceased and it was Augusta who was age five. This is according to published cemetery records, so either the census had the wrong name, the published cemetery records are wrong, or they renamed Augusta to Albertina by the time of the census. In January of 1920, the year she died, she was a widow living in Kittery, Maine with her adopted daughter Linnie and her husband William F. Rowe(3044). Olive and and her husband Samuel Jackson adopted at least four of of Olive's brother Jonathan's children. In the 1900 census of Kittery, Maine Samuel and Olive were living with Linnea, Rosa, Clara and Henry Wallingford, all listed as adopted children. Samuel's occupation is difficult to read, but appears to be "wood turner". They had been married for 32 years, and Olive was said to be the mother of three children, none of whom were then living.(3045) They appear to have had four, however, as there are four children buried with them in Kittery. Shackford states that they had a daughter Augusta who died at the age of 12, which sounds like it came from someone's memory so probably pertains to the Augusta who died at the age of 19.

Olive D. Wallingford and Samuel Augustus Jackson had the following children:

child 724 i. Albertina A.9 Jackson was born in 1866. (Gravestone) Albertina died in 1867. She was buried in the Orchard Grove Cemetery in Kittery, Maine.(3046)

child 725 ii. William H. Jackson was born in 1872. (Gravestone) William died in 1875. He was buried in the Orchard Grove Cemetery in Kittery, Maine.(3047)

child 726 iii. Augusta A. Jackson was born in 1875. (Gravestone) Augusta died in 1894. She was buried in the Orchard Grove Cemetery in Kittery, Maine.(3048)

child 727 iv. Samuel A. Jackson was born in 1879. (Gravestone) Samuel died in 1880. He was buried in the Orchard Grove Cemetery in Kittery, Maine.(3049)
