Sunday’s Obituary – Mercy (Rose) (Shackford) Newell (1795-1875) “OUR MOTHER” (Blog 474)

Mercy Rose, the daughter of Eber and Elizabeth (Green) Rose and my third great grandmother was born on January 24, 1795 in Newburyport.  She was their second daughter named Mercy – the first Mercy was born in 1792 and died in 1793.

Mercy was 17 when she married William Shackford, son of Levi and Tampson (Greenleaf) Shackford.  They had ten children, nine living ranging in ages from 1 to 19 when William, a mason, died of pleurisy on May 15, 1831.  We don’t know how Mercy supported her large family after William died — this may be why on January 18, 1834, she married Joseph Newell who was thirty years her senior.  In 1850 Joseph, age 84 was head of household with Mercy and children Abner and Emeline in the home but by 1855 Mercy was living in her son Abner’s home with son Thomas.  Joseph died shortly thereafter in Boston at the age of 89 of old age in Brookline, Massachusetts on October 31, 1856.

After Joseph’s death, Mercy lived with her son-in-law Edward Cushing and her daughter Louise in Weymouth.  In 1865 she was living with her son-in-law Joel Whittemore and daughter Caroline along with son Abner.  Death Record Mercy Rose Shackford Newell

Sunday’s Obituary – “When the young are called hence” John S Shackford (1875-1900)of Farmington, NH (Blog 472)

John S Shackford the son of Amasa William and Clara (Lougee) Shackford was born on April 10, 1875 in Barnstead, New Hampshire.   John studied for a short time in New Hampton, New Hampshire.  He married Lena Frances Whitehouse, the daughter of Warren and Emma A (York) Whitehouse on November 24, 1897.  The newly married couple lived with John’s parents as he began to work for his father who was a well known photographer.  Sadly at the age of 25, John died of tuberculosis on June 28, 1900.  He was buried in the Farmington Village Cemetery.

John’s wife remained with the Shackford family for some time before marrying Adrian Elmer Hall in 1905.

Fortunately we can learn a bit more about this young man who died early from his obituary which was published by The Farmington News on July 6, 1900.

Obituary John Seth Shackford The Farmington News (Farmington, New Hampshire), 6 July 1900In Memorium.
In the passing onward of friends,
whose years have been many, whatever
be our grief in the loss of their com-
panionship and affectionate considera-
tion, we feel that they are happy in the
going forth from present or approaching
feebleness and probable pain, to become
strong and active again in good works
and to experiences which shall compen-
sate for the discomforts and sorrows of
the phase of existence with which they
have been acquainted; that they “have
live their life,” and have gone to a
world of sweetness and light to be a
part of the new Jerusalem, and to be
judged with the omniscient mercy. And
with such a faith we are consoled.
But when the young are called hense,
we are conscious of a disappointment
in connection with our sorrow of be-
reavement, and while the conditions
that await the aged may be equally
ready for those who are in the flush of
youth, we are slow to accept their con-
solation, for we are overwhelmed with
the sea of anguish of personal loss. We
are robbed, it seems to us, of all that
youth holds as promise of the joy and
comfort of advancing years, and we
feel ourselves desolate indeed.
Few sorrows are greater than is the
parting of parents from their only child,
or than in the giving up of her husband
by a wife.
Such an extreme affliction has been
laid upon Mr. and Mrs. Amasa W.
Shackford and their young daughter-in-
law Mrs. Lena Whitehouse Shackford,
in the decease of John S. Shackford
Thursday evening of last week.
Mr. Shackford was out of health
some time ago, but seemed to improve,
and it was hoped that a long life lay
before one so useful and so dear, bu the
became more and more feeble until at
last the supreme hour drew near and
the Golden Gates were opened for him.
“He could not stay his feet, that led thereto;
It yielded to his touch, and passing through,
He came into a world all bright and fair,
Free from the mists of age, of care, and strife,
Above whose portal shone the Gate of Life.”
Mr Shackford was the only child of
his parents, and had lived always with
them save for time spent in a course of
study at New Hampton, where he be-
came acquainted with the Rev. Frank
Pearson, now pastor of the Free Bap-
tist church in this town, whose minis-
trations to his friend, during the sad
season of illness, have been peculiarly
tender and welcome.
The association of the son in the
business of his father was exceedingly
helpful to the later, and everyone feels
deep sympathy for him who has been
deprived of not only a beloved child
but also of a stay and partner in busi-
ness at a period of life when he looked
reasonably toward a relinquishing of
care to the younger man.
A, like sympathy goes out to the
mother who has been made “to drink
of the Lord’s cup,” whose faith, which
has long been a worthy example to her
associates, has to endure this bitter
trial; and to the young wife, in this
sorrow and loss which charge the bright
promise of the past to this sad certainty
of present loneliness To these who
have laid away the body of their be-
loved, the skies seem dark with clouds
and joy is indeed far off. Yet there
shall be a gleam of blessed sunlight in
the memory of the years that were made
happy to him whom they mourn, by
their devoted love, years which were
gladdened by his kindly presence and
cheery companionship; and the prom-
ises of the watchful Father of all endure
from everlasting to everlasting, to save
his children from despair.
The funeral of Mr. Shackford took
place Sunday afternoon in charge of B.
F. Perkins, with the Free Baptist pas-
tor as the officiating clergyman. In
the performing of his sad duty Mr.
Pearson was both the pastor and the
friend. He has known the upright and
useful life of this young townsman, and
the happy relatinoship of which he was
a part, and he could speak with loving
sympathy, as well as with priestly au-
thority in directing the sticken family
to the true and unfailing source of con-
solation, and of courage to bear even
this exceeding anguish.
Among friends from out of town
who attended the service were Mrs.
Dow and her son, Mr William Dow,
of Barnstead; Mrs. Varney and Mr.
and Mrs. Dow of Laconia; Mr and
Mrs. Varney of Alton; Mrs. Leighton
of Haverhill, Mass; Mr. and Mrs
Warren Whitehouse, the parents of the
widow, with their daughter Mrs. Ed-
win Wallace and Mr. Wallace of San-
bornville, and their sons Albert and
Charles Whitehouse, and also from
Middleton, Mr. and Mrs. George
Stevens, with many friends and real-
tives from the nearer vicinity of Farm-
ington. Members of the Montauk
club were present, and a beautiful
floral pillow was received from the or-
ganization. Beautiful flowers were
received from many other friends,
among which were those from Mrs. U.
S Knox, a sister of the young widow;
bouquets from Mrs. George of Middle-
ton and Lewis Gilson of Alton; a cross
from Laconia friends, and a harp from
Mrs. Walter L. Chelsey and Mrs
Charles Crosby.
Internment was made in the Farming-
ton cemetery.

Treasure Chest Thursday – In 1874, Caroline E (Shackford) Palmer Must Obtain Her Husband’s Permission to Administer Her Brother’s (Thomas Shackford’s) Estate, (Blog 469)

Thomas Shackford, the son of William and Mercy (Rose) Shackford, my second great uncle was born on October 30, 1815 in Weymouth, Massachusetts.  Thomas was a very successful deaf-mute who received his early education at the American Asylum in Hartford, worked as a carpenter and became chairman and later treasurer of the Association of Deaf-Mutes. He was working on a petition for state funding when he died on his way home in Brookline on January 29, 1874 in Boston due to heart disease.  His last rites were held at his sister’s home (Caroline L Palmer) and he was buried in Weymouth, Massachusetts. 

Most likely the law required Thomas’ sister Caroline to first obtain permission from her husband, Charles L Palmer in order to be the administrator of her brother’s estate which is why a copy of this letter of permission was filed in Thomas’ probate records.

Charles L Palmer gives permission to Caroline E (Shackford) Palmer to Manager Sister's EstateI, Charles L Palmer, husband of Caroline E Palmer, hereby assent to the appointment of my said wife as administratrix of the estate of Thomas Shackford late of Brookline, Massachusetts, deceased.

               Brookline, Feby 10th 1874

               Charles E Palmer

The other treasure we find in the probate record is this listing of Thomas’ living siblings.  My second great grandfather, William Brown Shackford was not included as he had died in 1866 but the listing includes my third great grandmother Mercy (Rose) (Shackford) Newell.

Thomas Shackford Probate Heirs List16396:4

To the Honorable the Judge of the Probate Court in and for the Country of

  Abner R. Shackford, of Boston, “, brother ” ”

  Emeline Cushing, of Weymouth, ” sister ” ” [Emeline married Peter Cushing — I have a DNA match with one of these descendants, jsp]

Sunday’s Obituary Charles Corliss Shackford, Jr (1910-1937), a Newburyport Native (Blog 468)

Obituary Charles Corliss Shackford 1937 Newburyport Daily News and Newburyport Herald (Newburyport, Massachusetts), 24 February 1937
Newburyport Daily News and Newburyport Herald, 24 February 1937

Funeral services were held yester-
day at 2 o’clock for Charles Corliss
Shackford, Jr. son of Mr. and Mrs.
Charles Corliss Shackford at their
home, 217 Boston avenue, Medford.
He was born in Newburyport and was
26 years of age. Besides his parents
he leaves a wife, Pauline; a sister
Mrs Ruth Holstrom of Worcester, a
brother Robert and other relatives.
Committal services were held in Law-
rence.

Although Charles Corliss Shackford’s obituary states he was born in Newburyport, his birth record reflects that the son of Charles Corliss and Florence (Hey) Shackford  was born April 25, 1910 at 76 Tremont St in Lawrence, Massachusetts which was the home of Frances’ parents.  Interestingly he is listed as the NoName Son, age 0/12 on the 1910 Census at 46 Bromfield St in Newburyport, Massachusetts which is dated 18 April indicating that the census was probably taken a few days after April 15th.

In 1920 nine-year old Charles was in Philadelphia with his family where his father was working as a lumber inspector and in 1930 twenty year old Charles living with his parents and working as a clerk for a furrier.  In 1936 he married Pauline Grace McNaught and sadly died shortly thereafter at the age of 26 on February 10, 1937.  He was buried at the Bellevue Cemetery in Lawrence, Massachusetts.
