474. Jacob B.7 Wallingford (Amos P.6, Jacob5, Peter4, John3, John2, Nicholas1) was born in New Hampshire about 1824. (Based on 1850 census.) Jacob died before 18 August 1856, in Rochester, Strafford County, New Hampshire.(2787) (date of newspaper)
He married Lydia R. Horne, 9 February 1846, in Rochester, Strafford County, New Hampshire.(2788) Lydia was born about 1825, in New Hampshire. (Date and place from census records.)
He was a Representative from Rochester in 1856.(2789) In the 1850 census the family was living in Rochester. Jacob was a farmer with a farm worth $4000, a fairly large amount for the time. His age was given as 26, born in N.H., and his wife Lydia R., age 25 was also born N.H. Their daughter Martha [A.?], was age 3, also born in N.H. Living with them were Rhoda R. Hodgdon, 52, born N.H., Abigail Wallingford, 78, born N.H. and deaf, and Betsey Hurd, 76, born N.H(2790). Rhoda is likely Jacob's mother, and Abigail is very probably his grandmother. Betsey Hurd is possibly another older female relative. In 1860, after Jacob's death, Lydia R. Wallingford, age 34, born N.H., was living in Rochester with Martha A., age 13, Charles W., age 8, and Ella M., age 5, all born N.H. Also in the household was Lorenzo M. Fall, a 23-year old shoemaker born in N.H.(2791) In 1870 Lydia, now married to Philander Gale, gives her age, probably incorrectly, as 37. Philander, born in Mass. is 38, and Ellen M. Wallingford is 15. Also with them are John H. Nutter, 27, Abbie Nutter, 22, and a two month old unnamed baby Nutter (born in April) all born in N.H(2792). Abbie Nutter may be a daughter of Philander Gale.
Jacob B. Wallingford and Lydia R. Horne had the following children:
+ 664 i. Martha A.8 Wallingford was born 1 May 1847.
666 iii. Ella M. Wallingford was born probably in Rochester, N.H. about 1855. (Based on the 1860 and 1870 censuses.) Despite her name clearly being Ella M. in the 1860 and Ellen M. in the 1870 censuses of Rochester, Charles Wallingford calls her Mary E. He also says that she married Joseph Villards and had a son Lewis, but he says the same thing about another Mary E. Wallingford, daughter of Lewis and Abigail (Merrow) Wallingford.(2793) Shackford agrees with the "Villards" marriage being to the other Mary, and also calls our "Ella" or "Ellen" M. Mary E, but gives no further info on her.(2794) She may be the Miss Ella Wallingford of Berwick who married William J. Champion in Berwick on 10 June 1887.(2795)
