170. Isabelle5 Wallingford (Amos4, Amos3 Walllingford, Unconnected2 Families, Unconnected1 Wallingfords) was born in Royalston, Worcester County, Massachusetts 22 July 1857.(784) Her name was Susanna on her birth record. Her marriage record states that she was born in Fitzwilliam, N.H., but the Mass. vital records show her birth in Royalston, Mass. Bell died 3 June 1927.(785)
She married Samuel Fisher Gleason, 5 September 1876, in Westminster, Worcester County, Massachusetts.(786) Their marriage was recorded in both Fitchburg (where they resided) and Westminster, Mass. where the man who married them -- the Rev. Joseph Barber -- was pastor of the Baptist Church. Shackford states that they were married in Westminster, having gotten some of his information from Isabelle herself, so it seems probable that they were married in Westminster and the record was recorded in Fitchburg because they lived there. At the time Samuel was a merchant.
Samuel was born 31 August 1852, in Princeton, Worcester County, Massachusetts.(787) Samuel was the son of Phineas Merrill Gleason and Sally White Rawson. Samuel died 22 January 1913, in Princeton, Worcester County, Massachusetts.(788) Cause of death was listed as chronic myocarditis with general dropsy as a contributing factor. He was buried in the South Cemetery on January 24th. His death certificate gives the year of death as 1913 while the family Bible reportedly reads 1912. They lived in Princeton, Mass.(789) where, according to his death record, Samuel was a farmer.
Isabelle Wallingford and Samuel Fisher Gleason had the following child:
276 i. Roger Albert6 Gleason was born in Princeton, Worcester County, Massachusetts 22 May 1881.(790) He married Jessie Robinson, 19 September 1904.(791) Information sent by descendant Curtis Gleason of Templeton, Mass. in 1999 calls her "Jesse Mae Burdick? Burdet? Gleason" while the Gleason Family Bible in Curtis Gleason's possession shows her name just as "Jessie Robinson". The latter appears to be an original Bible record, while the former are the notes of Curtis Gleason.
