124. Tristram4 Wallingford (Thomas3, Unconnected2 Families, Unconnected1 Wallingfords) was born in Berwick, York County, Maine 8 March 1824.(678) (Date taken from gravestone.) Tristram died of pneumonia, 7 February 1905, in Rochester, Strafford County, New Hampshire, at 80 years of age.(679) He was buried in Cold Spring Cemetery, East Rochester, NH.(680)
He married Susan Brock, 23 March 1845, in Berwick, York County, Maine.(681) They were both living in Berwick when they got married.
Susan was born 6 May 1824.(682) (Gravestone record)
Susan was the daughter of Nathaniel Brock and Betsey (Garland, John, John, John, Nicholas) Wallingford. Shackford calls her daughter of "Samuel (Nathaniel?) & Betsy (Walling ) Brock".(686) I suspect there was some conflicting information on her death record at NHVR, which this author hasn't checked yet. It is on this confusing statement that her parentage is based, but we do know that Nathaniel and Betsey (Wallingford) Brock did have a daughter Susan born about the right time.
Shackford spells his name Trustrum. In 1850 Tristram and family were living next door to his father in Berwick, Maine. He was a farmer on a piece of land worth less than $1000. The number was illegible, but did consist of three digits. Living with him was his sister Lenora Gove and her husband and first child.(688)
Tristram Wallingford and Susan Brock had the following children:
+ 249 i. Joseph L.5 Wallingford was born about June 1845.
250 ii. Mark Freeman Wallingford was born in Maine 29 September 1846.(689) Mark died 18 February 1920, in North Berwick, York County, Maine.(690) He married Mary A. Worcester, 10 November 1866, in Rochester, Strafford County, New Hampshire.(691) Mary was born 1 March 1844, in Lebanon, York County, Maine.(692) Mary was the daughter of Lemuel Worcester and Margaret Pray.
Mark F. Wallingford, a farmer, and his wife Mary (Worster) were listed in the 1905 North Berwick, Maine directory.(694) They still lived in North Berwick around 1914.(695) After Mark's death his widow lived in Rochester around 1928. They had no natural children but did have an adopted son. One of Shackford's notes says that he was a shoemaker and farmer, and was in "Co. D. 57 Mass.", which seems to indicate that he was a Civil War soldier.(696) When Charles Wallingford was working on his 1942 Wallingford Genealogy he communicated with a Mark F. Wallingford of Rochester.(697)
+ 251 iii. Edgar Wallingford was born 1 April 1850.
+ 252 iv. Cyrus Wallingford was born 22 January 1854.
+ 253 v. Harvey B. or D. Wallingford was born about 1863.
254 vi. Mahala Wallingford.(698) Shackford says she died aged 6 months, but gives no dates. He does assign her to the sixth position in the family, between Harvey and Etta, suggesting a birth around 1865. One of his sources for this family was Mrs. Mark F. Wallingford, wife of Mahala's brother, so perhaps she knew that a child died at the age of six months but knew no dates.
+ 255 vii. Etta S. Wallingford was born 6 April 1867.
