603. William L.8 Wallingford (Stephen7, Aaron6, John5, John4, John3, John2, Nicholas1) was born in Lebanon, York County, Maine 25 September 1857.(3147) Date of birth is on gravestone.

He married Sophia H. Thompson, 26 December 1881, in Douglas, Worcester County, Massachusetts.(3149) At the time they were married William was a farmer and they were both living in Douglas, Mass.
Sophia was born about 1853, in Berwick, York County, Maine.(3150) Her marriage record states that she was aged 28, born in Berwick to Edward and Mary E. Thompson. The 1930 census record for her son Charles said she was born in N.H. but this doesn't seem as likely. Sophia was the daughter of Edward Thompson and Mary E..
His gravestone gives his birthdate and the 1860 census of Stephen Wallingford's family says their son William was 3 at the time, but this is the only evidence at present tying the William who died in 1892 with the son of Stephen who was 3 in the 1860 census -- their similarity in ages. His age in the 1870 census was 12, which is consistent.
William L. Wallingford and Sophia H. Thompson had the following child:
