142. Walter B.4 Wallingford (William Tarbox3, Unconnected2 Families, Unconnected1 Wallingfords) was born in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts about 1846/47. He was aged 32, born in Boston to William and Susan F. Wallingford, on his first marriage record. A search was made of the Mass. vital records indexes for the 1840s and the only possibility found was an unnamed male Tarbox born in Charlestown, Mass. on 23 Jan 1846 to William [K.?] and Eliza A. Tarbox.(721)

He married twice. He married first, Mary E. Currier, 25 May 1879, in Bradford, Essex County, Massachusetts.(722) At the time of their marriage Walter was a sail maker living in Malden, Mass. and Mary was living in Bradford, Mass. The marriage was recorded in both towns and neither record stated where it took place so it could have been either, but most likely it was in the bride's home town of Bradford.

Mary was born 3 February 1849, in Haverhill, Essex County, Massachusetts.(723) Mary was the daughter of Walter W. Currier and Elizabeth L.. Mary died of phthisis, 19 February 1886, in Malden, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.(724) He married Maria Pillsbury Green, 12 October 1887, in Malden, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.(725) This was the second marriage for both of them. Walter was a sail maker living in Malden, Mass. and Maria was living in Castine, Maine.

Maria was born 11 February 1857, in Castine, Hancock County, Maine. Date is calculated from her age at death of 66-10-1. Her death and marriage records said she was born in Castine, Maine to Leonard and Lydia (Perkins) Green. The marriage record called her "Hatch, Maria P. Green" and it was her second marriage, so one name is her maiden name and the other is the name of her first husband. The 1860 census of Castine, Maine, however, clearly shows Maria P. in the household of Leonard and Lydia Green. She was aged 3 in this census taken June 5th.(726) Maria was the daughter of Leonard Green and Lydia Anne Perkins.

Maria died of arterio sclerosis, 12 December 1923, at home, 15 Waite St., in Malden, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.(727) She was buried on December 14th in Forestdale Cemetery in Malden.

They were living in Malden, Mass. when their infant daughter Ruth died in 1891. When the 1900 census was taken on June 7th, the family was at 15 Waite St. in Malden. Walter was still employed as a sailmaker.(728) In 1910, on April 20th, they were at the same address and Walter was the proprietor of a canvas manufacturing business.(729) In 1920 their address is now 9 Waite St. in Malden and Walter is said to be a manufacturer of canvas goods.(730) When Maria died in 1923 the address was back to 15 Waite St..

Walter B. Wallingford and Maria Pillsbury Green had the following children:

child 261 i. Louise5 Wallingford was born in Malden, Middlesex County, Massachusetts 24 August 1888.(731) The 1880 census gave her month and year of birth as August 1888. She was unmarried and living with family in Malden in the 1900 through 1930 censuses.

child 262 ii. Ruth Wallingford was born in Malden, Middlesex County, Massachusetts 29 January 1891.(732) Ruth died of cyanosis, 6 February 1891, in Malden, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, aged 8 days.(733)

child 263 iii. Beulah Wallingford was born in Malden, Middlesex County, Massachusetts 30 July 1892.(734) Her first name comes from the 1900 census, which shows her as born in July 1892. She married Gaius A. Morrill Jr., 20 January 1915, in Malden, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.(735) When they married Gaius was an accountant and Beulah was a stenographer and they were both living in Malden.

Gaius was born about 1892, in Buckfield, Oxford County, Maine. His birthplace and parentage come from his January 1915 marriage record, in which he was aged 22. He was aged 37 in the 1930 census. His name may have been spelled Gains, but the difference between the u and the n in the old records is hard to determine. Gaius seems a more likely name. Gaius was the son of Gaius A. Morrill and Alice A. Pratt.

When the 1920 census was taken on January 2nd, Gains and Beulah were living at 47 Webster St. in Malden.(736) In 1930 they were at 15 Waite St. in Malden, probably her parents former home. No children were enumerated with them in either census.(737)

child 264 iv. Marjorie Wallingford was born in Malden, Middlesex County, Massachusetts 19 March 1895.(738) Shackford calls her Marion, but she is Marjorie in the 1900, 1910 and 1920 censuses. She was unmarried and living with family in Malden in the 1900 through 1930 censuses.
