445. Ann7 Wallingford (Aaron6, John5, John4, John3, John2, Nicholas1) was born in Berwick, York County, Maine about 1818.(2566) (Approximate date of birth from 1850 census. Place of birth from Milton, NH Town Report record of her son Aaron's death.)
She married first, Samuel Randall, 18 November 1838, (date of marriage intention) in Berwick, York County, Maine.(2567) They were both living in Lebanon when they got married. They filed their marriage intention there on 29 September 1838. At that time Samuel was said to be of Berwick and Ann of Lebanon.(2568)
Samuel was born about 1818, in Berwick, York County, Maine. (Approximate date of birth is from 1850 census. Place of birth from Milton, NH Town Report record of his son Aaron's death.)
Samuel died about 1853.(2569)
In the 1850 census of Somersworth, N.H. Samuel Randall is a 32-year old manufacturer, born in Maine and Ann is also 32, born in Maine. With them are three children: Patience, 5, Lydia, 4, and Sarah J., 2, all born in N.H. Their children Aaron and Ann who should have been with the family aren't present in the census. Also with them are Giles and Malinda Wallingford as well as a Martha J. Wallingford.(2570) Giles and Malinda were husband and wife, and Malinda was daughter of Ann's cousin Jonathan, son of Garland. Giles' placement in the family is presently unknown. There is much confusion over the identify of this Martha J., as there appear no less than 3 women by this exact name in various 1850 censuses of the area.
Ann married second, her first cousin once removed John Wallingford (William B., Garland, John, John, John, Nicholas). See his family for a continuation of that line.
Ann Wallingford and Samuel Randall had the following children:
604 i. Aaron W.8 Randall was born in Somersworth, N.H.? about January 1839.(2571) The Milton, NH Town Report record of his death states that he was born in Berwick, Maine, and the Rochester, NH Town Report record of his son Walter's death gives Aaron's birth place as Milton Mills, NH. It is the NH Register of Civil War soldiers that states he was born in Somersworth, and since that is the earliest record we will assume it to be the most reliable. He was 57y, 9m of age when he died. Aaron died of heart failure, 3 or 31 October 1896, in Milton, Strafford County, New Hampshire.(2572) (Source gives 3d from Milton Town report source and 31st from gravestone) He married Emily S. Colomy, 13 June 1864.(2573) He was of Berwick and she was of Newfield, Maine at the time of their marriage.
Emily was born 30 September 1844, in Dover, Strafford County, New Hampshire.(2574) (The Rochester, NH Town Report record of her son Walter's death gives Emily's birth place as Newfield, Maine.) Emily was the daughter of Isaac Colomy and Lydia Smith.
Emily died 28 September 1913, in Milton, Strafford County, New Hampshire.(2575) Aaron was a soldier during the Civil War. He enlisted in Company F of the 4th NH Regiment on 31 July 1861 at Concord, N.H., and was mustered in on 10 September as a private. He transferred to Company B of the 1st Artillery on 21 January 1863 and on 27 February 1864 was discharged on disability at Fort Independence in Boston Harbor.(2576)
605 ii. Ann J. Randall was born in Berwick, York County, Maine 3 January 1843.(2577) (Date from gravestone) Ann died 21 June 1918, in Milton, Strafford County, New Hampshire.(2578) She was buried in the Prospect Hill Cemetery in Lebanon, Maine. She married Unknown Jenness. (She was the widow Jenness at the time she died.)
607 iv. Lydia Randall was born in New Hampshire about 1846. (Based on the 1850 census) She married a cousin, Amos Wallingford, son of Jonathan Wallingford and Rachel Nock. See his record for a continuation of her line.
609 vi. Minerva I. Randall was born 2 August 1853. (Calculated from age on gravestone) Shackford has a puzzling note after her name that reads, "abt. 1853 after her husband's death by a colored barber - Hill." The date is presumably Minerva's birthdate, and "her husband" presumably is referring to Minerva's parents. My guess is that he meant to say that Minerva was born after Samuel Randall's death and was the daughter of the widow Ann and a black barber named Hill. One of Shackford's sources was Mrs. Laura A. Wallingford who was from another Lebanon family that wasn't closely related to this one. Perhaps it was local tradition and if so is unlikely to be verifiable now. Minerva died 20 June 1881, in Berwick, York County, Maine.(2579) She was buried in the Evergreen Cemetery in Berwick, Maine.(2580) She married her distant cousin Andrew J. Wallingford, son of George and Almyra (Wallingford) Wallingford. See his record for a continuation of her line.
