249. Joseph L.5 Wallingford (Tristram4, Thomas3, Unconnected2 Families, Unconnected1 Wallingfords) was born in Maine about June 1845. (Calculated from age on gravestone. Place from 1850 census.) Joseph died 6 April 1878, probably in Lebanon, Maine.(847) His remains were among those removed to Cold Spring cemetery in East Rochester, N.H.
He married Laura Augusta Gove, 25 or 26 June 1870, in Lebanon, York County, Maine.(848) Her name was Augusta L. Stevens on this marriage record. The original Town of Lebanon records give the date as June 25th while the published version has it incorrectly as the 15th. Shackford, having used the published record and seeing the 15th, mentions this, but still gives the 26th as the date, presumably from Laura herself.
Laura was born 27 February 1849, in Somersworth, Strafford County, New Hampshire.(849) Laura was the daughter of James A. Gove and Clarissa Knox. Laura died in 1943. She is buried in the Pine Hill Cemetery in Dover, N.H.(850) Her name is Laura Gove Stevens Wallingford on her gravestone. After divorcing her fourth husband she changed her last name back to Wallingford. She gave much information to Shackford in the preparation of his genealogy of the Wallingfords.(851) Buried with her was her daughter Lucinda, Luther M. Caverly, 1839-1909, and his two wives Anna P. Berry, 1847-1878 and Georgie M. Stevens, 1865-1962.(852) Georgie was Laura's daughter by her first husband.
Joseph L. Wallingford and Laura Augusta Gove had the following children:
291 i. Clara Augusta6 Wallingford was born in Berwick, York County, Maine 14 December 1872.(854) She married twice. She married first, Oscar Charles Littlefield, 17 June 1891, in Rochester, Strafford County, New Hampshire.(855) Their marriage ended in divorce.
She married second, Charles Albert Boswell, 22 March 1913, in Dover, Strafford County, New Hampshire.(856) Charles was born about 1866.(857) Charles was the son of Charles M. Boswell and Addie L.. When Shackford wrote his genealogy in 1928 they were living childless in Newton, N.H.(858)
292 ii. Lucinda Ann Wallingford was born in Berwick, York County, Maine 13 March 1874.(859) Cynda died 30 April 1921, in Lawrence, Essex County, Massachusetts.(860) She is buried in the Pine Hill Cemetery in Dover, N.H. Her name is "Gynda" on the gravestone according to the source, but should probably read "Cynda".(861) She married Walter Edward Parker, 29 November 1919, in Lawrence, Essex County, Massachusetts.(862) This was Walter's fourth marriage, and he came to this marriage as a widower. It was Cynda's first marriage. He was a manufacturer living at 217 Haverhill St. in Lawrence and she was living in Newton, N.H. at the time.
Walter was born about 1847, in Princeton, Worcester County, Massachusetts. (Parentage and birth info are based on his marriage record) Walter was the son of George Parker and Emily R. Coller. She had no children.(863)
