29. Thomas3 Wallingford (Unconnected2 Families, Unconnected1 Wallingfords) was born in Maine about 1795. (Based on age of 56 in 1850 census and 72 on gravestone.) Thomas died 7 July 1867.(269) He was buried in a private cemetery on the north side of Pine Hill Road in Berwick, Maine.

He married Anna McCrillis, 22 October 1815, in Lebanon, York County, Maine.(270) Her name was spelled Anne McRelas on their marriage record.

Anna was born about 1793, in Lebanon, York County, Maine.(271) (Date is based on age of 57 in 1850 census and 72 on gravestone.) Anna(272) was the daughter of John McCrillis and Lydia Shorey.

Anna died 27 October 1866.(273) She was buried in a private cemetery on the north side of Pine Hill Road in Berwick, Maine.

Thomas is presently unconnected. The fact that he married in Lebanon would suggest that he is a member of the muddied Lebanon branch of the family, but there is the possibility that he is the Thomas Ricker Wallingford, son of Thomas and Hannah (Lyman) Wallingford whom Shackford suggests died in 1811.(276) Shackford, however, does not provide any ancestry for the Thomas who married Anne McCrillis.(277) Charles Wallingford does consider them to be the same person.(278) In 1850 Thomas and family were living in Berwick, Maine. Thomas was a farmer on a piece of land valued at $200. Living next door was the family of his son Tristram.(279) He was not listed in the 1860 census of Berwick, despite being buried there seven years later.

Thomas Wallingford and Anna McCrillis had the following children:

child + 121 i. Lydia4 Wallingford was born about 1816.

child + 122 ii. Moses Wallingford was born 18 July 1818.

child + 123 iii. Elizabeth Wallingford was born about 1820.

child + 124 iv. Tristram Wallingford was born 8 March 1824.

child + 125 v. Lenora Wallingford was born 12 May 1831.

child 126 vi. Rebecca Wallingford was born in Maine about December 1833. (Based on age of 22 yrs. 4 mos. on gravestone. Place from 1850 census.) Rebecca died 13 April 1856.(280) She was buried in a private cemetery on the north side of Pine Hill Road in Berwick, Maine.

The Wallingford Genealogy, p.88, says she married 12 April 1856, but doesn't name a spouse. It probably meant to say she died on that date, even though the gravestone reads the 13th.

child 127 vii. Abigail Wallingford was born in Maine about 1835. (Based on the 1850 census of Berwick.) Abigail died 28 July 1860. The cemetery inscription is clear that Abby, wife of John Stearns, Jr., died on that date, but we have only Shackford for evidence that she was Abigail Wallingford, daughter of Thomas. She was buried in a small private cemetery on the north side of Pine Hill Road in Berwick, Maine.(282) She married John Stearns Jr.(283)

child 128 viii. Lucinda Wallingford was born in Maine 27 January 1838. (Place from 1850 census of Berwick, date calculated from age at death on gravestone) Lucinda died 29 November 1862. She was buried in a private cemetery with her parents and some sisters on the north side of Pine Hill Road in Berwick, Maine. The secondary source that records this gravestone reads "Ham, Luenda, wieo [sic] George W." Whether that should be "wife" or "widow" is unknown, but given that it was only three years after they married it is probably "wife".(285) She married George W. Ham, 10 May 1858, in Somersworth, Strafford County, New Hampshire.(286) She was "of Berwick" at the time of her marriage.

Shackford says she married a Charles Ham, and this is apparently based on the word of Mrs. Laura A. Wallingford, wife of Lucinda's brother Tristram's son Joseph. Given the fact that "Luenda" Ham is buried in the family plot it would seem that Mrs. Laura Wallingford got the name wrong. Not surprising given that Lucinda died in 1862 after being married only a few years and Shackford was working on his book in the 1920s. Shackford also leaves room for two children for this couple, again apparently based on the word of Mrs. Laura Wallingford.(288)

child + 129 ix. Jane Wallingford was born about 1839.

child 130 x. George Wallingford was born in Maine about 1842. (Based on the 1850 census of Berwick.) His place in this family is doubtful. The 1850 census lists a George in the family, aged 8, but his mother would have been 49 years old when he was born. He may be a nephew or something. Shackford puts a question mark after his name.
