Wedding Wednesday – James Murray Shackford marries Mrs Binie Hatch-Wincup in Chicago in 1898 (Blog 430)

James Murray Shackford, the son of John Edward and Mary Astern (Harris) Shackford was born on February 18, 1853 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.  We find James’ father in St Louis in 1850 working as a clerk and in Toledo Ohio in 1853 which is where his mother died in Aug 1854 when James was only 18 months.  After his mother’s death, James and his brother Charles Albert were brought up by their great aunt Sarah and her daughter Mary Jane in Berwick where they attended the Berwick Academy.  In 1870 when he was 17, James lived with the William Henry family where he was a locomotive apprentice and in the home of Samuel Kingsbury where he was a machinist apprentice.  He then attended Cornell where he obtained a degree as a mechanical engineer and became a member of the fraternity Chi Phi.  James’ father remained in the St Louis area where he married someone from that area and had two children.

On April 3, 1877, James married Mary C Farrell in Galesburg Illinois and the family moved to St Paul, Minnesota where James worked as a draftsman.  They returned to Illinois where their son Daniel Robert Shackford was born in 1882.  Sadly Mary died on Aug 5, 1894 at the age of 37.

In February 1897, James was accepted into the Illinois Society of the Sons of the American Revolution based on research he provided regarding his mother’s family line of Harris back to Wentworth Hunking, Chairman of Portsmouth Committee of Safety.  We don’t find any documentation of a submission based on his ancestor Paul Shackford (1702-1786) although other descendents of Paul used that lineage as the basis of their submissions.

On March 10, 1898, James married Binie Hatch Wincup, the widow of Charles Wincup who had died in April 1890.

MARRIED IN CHICAGO

Mr. J. M. Shackford and Mrs Binie Hatch-Wincup United Yesterday at M. Andrew’s Church

–  Yesterday afternoon at 3 o’clock, in St.

Washington boulevard and Roby streets,
was celebrated the marriage of Mr. James
Murray Shackford and Mrs. Binie Hatch
Wincup, of Chicago. The pastor of the

in the presence of only a few of the friends
and relatives of the contracting parties.
Both of the people who were united yes-
terday are very well and favorably known
in this city. Mr. Shackford has been con-
nected with the Alton for some time and is
now a mechanical engineer for the road.
Mrs. Wincup is a former resident of this
city. She has been a resident of Chicago
since last fall.
Mr. and Mrs. Shackford will return to
this city on Monday of next week. They
will reside temporarily at 308 North Madi-
son street.

James, Binie, Daniel and Binie’s two children Tom H and Mary B remained in the Bloomington area in 1900 and then moved to Chicago where unfortunately Binie’s daughter Mary died of typhoid fever in September 1901.

They then moved to Scranton where they remained joined by Binnie’s mother Mary before 1910 until James’ death on September 14, 1928.  James was buried in the Greenwood Cemetery in Decatur, Illinois.  His wife Binie died in Los Angeles on Nov 16, 1936 and was cremated, ashes location unknown.

Tuesday Tips – Searching for Shackfords in Newspapers (Blog 429)

Newspaper articles about Shackfords re precious because the describe details of their lives, mention family members, include obituaries and often tell us facts that aren’t available in vital documents, census records, or other formal documents.  It isn’t always easy to find articles but as Ken Marks explains in his recent blog about finding more ancestors in newspapers using OCR scanning, alternative spellings can help us find more articles of the people we are searching.  Here’s the results showing new articles found using his methodology as we search for variations of the spelling of Shackford in Chronicling America.

VARIATIONS OF SHACKFORD Results  in Chronicling America
Shackford 2949 Shackfords

We’ve verifies that Ken Mark’s spelling variations work to help find many more articles and will be trying the alternative spellings that find more names as we continue searching for stories about Shackfords in other newspapers.

Sunday’s Obituary – Jethro Lillicrap, (1880-1922), Husband of Blanche Abbie Shackford (Blog 428)

Blanche Abbie Shackford, the daughter of Luther L and Miranda (Houghton) Shackford) was born on May 17, 1875 in Lyndon, Vermont.  In 1880 she lived with her parents and brother Willie in Concord, Vermont where her father worked as a harnessmaker.  At that age of 7 she was listed in the newspaper among other students who had neither absent or tardy marks while her brother was listed with one absence.  Four years later she lost her brother to diptheria.

Blanche continued to live with her parents in Concord until age 27 when on March 11, 1903 she married 22 year old Jethro Lillicrap, a stone cutter who had been born in England.  Shortly after their marriage he headed to Hardwick to work in the quarries.

Blanche and her husband appear frequently in the Vermont newspapers attending weddings of friends and families, family events, and funerals.  In 1910 they were in Concord with their two sons Paul and William and Blanche’s mother Miranda.  The family was enumerated in the 1920 census in Concord.

Sadly Jethro died on November 14, 1922 at the age of 42.  His life is described in this obituary published in The Caledonian-Record on Nov 21, 1922.

Death of Jethro Lillicrap

A gloom was cast over the com-
munity when it was known that
Jethro Lillicrap has passed away
at his home here, Tuesday after-
noon, Nov. 14. He had been ill
and a great sufferer for many
months, all that professional skill
could do proved of no avail, he
failed rapidly the last few days
until the end.
Mr. Lillicrap was born in Corn-
wall, England, June 3, 1880, son
of John and Hannah Rex Lillicrap.
He was one of a family of 11 chil-
dren, and is survived by four
brothers, Fred Lillicrap, Warsaw,
Wis., William Lillicrap, Philadel-
phia, Penn, Emanuel and Harry
Lillicrap of this town. The fam-
ily came to America when Mr. Lil-
licrap was 11 years old. He re-
ceived his education in the public
schools at Quincy, Mass., and after
spending a year in Harwick, this
state, he came to Concord in 1900
where he has since worked at this
occupation a a granite manufac-
turer.
March 11, 1903 he was married
to Blanche A. Shackford of this
town who with two sons, Paul
Jethro and William Houghton are
left to mourn the loss of a devoted
husband and father. He is also
survived by several nephews and
nieces. Mr. Lillicrap was a mem-
ber of the B. P. O. Elks, St.
Johnsbury, a large delegation
from this order attended the fun-
eral. He was also a member of
the U. C. T. of that place. The
funeral was held from the home
Friday at 11 o’clock, Rev. ZC. F.
McIntyre, pastor of the Universa-
list church officiating. The in-
ternment was in Lyndon cemetery.
Among those called here to attend
the funeral were Mr. and Mrs.
Freeman Pierce, Mr. and Mrs L
V. hastings, St. Johnsbury, Mr
and Mrs. W. W. Houghton, Mr
and Mrs Howard Johnson, Paul
and Milo Johnson, Mrs. Sarah
Houghton, Mr. and Mrs. Edwin
Houghton, Lyndonville; Mr. and
Mrs W. C. Lewis, Littleton, N. H.
and Lavilla Marshall, West Burke.

Blanche lived with her mother in St Johnsbury in 1930 where she worked as a private housekeeper and her two sons worked a traveling salesmen and returned to Concord where she and her mother lived together.  Her mother died in 1942 and Blanche died on July 12, 1946 at the age of 71 of cancer of the colon.  She was buried next to her husband in the Lyndon Center Cemetery in Lyndon, Vermont.

CHILDREN:

Paul Jethro Lillicrap (1904-1994) – lived in St Johnsbury, Vermont, married Eva Henrietta Beaulieu.

Wedding Wednesday – Stephen Frank Shackford marries Ada Louise Smith March 21, 1878 in Eaton, NH (Blog 426)

Stephen Frank Shackford who sometimes went by Stephen and other times by Frank was the son of Bradley and Hannah B (Shackford) Shackford.  He was born in Eaton, New Hampshire on April 23, 1855 and we find him with his parents in Eaton in the 1860 and 1870 censuses.

On March 21, 1878 when Stephen was 22 he married Ada Louise Smith.  While his parents were listed on the back page of the marriage record, the marriage record does not list any information about her parents, just that her place of birth was Parsonfield but other records list her birth location as Belfast, ME.  Since Smith is such common name, it’s difficult to learn more about Ada’s ancestry.

We find the newly married couple in 1880 in Porter Maine – Stephen is working as a laborer and they have a two year old son Eugene.  Thanks to another Shackford family history researcher, we’re aware that Stephen made many small land transactions during the next 15 years.  We have not found him in the 1900 census but do find him listed as a farmer in the 1905 Kennebunk and Wells Town Register with an occupation of farmer. He is not listed in the 1910 census but from city directories we find him in many cities with many different occupations Manchester, Salem, gardener; Beverly; Sanford, shoemaker;  Kennebunkport.  In 1920 we find stephen in Kennebunkport working as a farm laborer living with Ada and their daughter Gladys who was 18 at the time.

Frank’s wife Ada died in Canal Point, Florida on December 8, 1925 and was buried in Hope Cemetery in Kennebunk, Maine.  It is from these death records that we find her birth date listed as March 24, 1859.   She had given birth to fourteen children!

Frank died in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire on May 25, 1932 of myocarditis  – his death record says that he he had lived there the last 15 years.

CHILDREN:

Eugene Delmont Shackford (1878-1952)

Addie May Shackford (1880-????)

Bertha G Shackford (1882-1935)

Harry Lemman Shackford (1884-1953)

Frank O Shackford (1887-1909)

Ada Shackford (1891-1891)

Archie A Shackford (1893-????)

Mildred Myrtle Eldora Shackford (1894-????)

Ethel Louise Shackford (1896-1981)

Nellie Lena Shackford (1898-1975)

Roland Alfred Shackford (1901-1961) – WWI veteran

Gladys Stella Shackford (1901-1953)

Unknown Shackford (1903-????) –

We have more research to do on this Shackford family – researching them has been a bit difficult because many documents seem to contradict each other, probably because the information was not known and they did the best they could to fill in the blanks in forms. Many of Stephen’s children have multiple marriages making it difficult to track the women.  Also we want to find the original sources and analyze the specifics regarding Stephen and Ada’s land purchases as some have to do with sales of family land which may help us understand more about the family history.

Military Monday – Remembering the Shackfords Who Served in World War I (Blog 425)

As we pass the 100th anniversary of the week that the US President, the Senate, and the House endorsed the decision to formally enter the First World War, we’re joining the many family history researchers who are recognizing  Americans who served during WWI.   Because a 1973 fire destroyed over 75% of the Official Military Personnel Record files we’ve used many alternate sources (ship transport lists, gravestones, newspaper articles, Marine Corp Listings) to develop this list. We’d love to hear about anyone we’ve missed and will be working in the future to flush out the stories of these and the many other Shackford veterans.  Also in the future we plan to review what we can learn about Shackfords from their WWI Draft Registrations.

Franklin Pierce Shackford, the eldest son of Jonathan and Harriet N (Farnham) Shackford was born on June 1, 1854 in  Chester, New Hampshire.  We find him with his parents in the 1860, 1870, and 1880 censuses where his father worked as a farmer and Frank began working in the shoe business.  He married Helen A Lewis in Portsmouth on Dec 14, 1887.  By 1900, Franklin was working as a mason.  He also became a selectman of  Chester and the overseer of the poor.  In 1906 he and his siblings were recipients of the will of his uncle Rufus and moved from Chester to Derry.  Being the recipient of a will might be why Franklin wrote his own will four years later.

By 1920 Franklin was still in Derry working in the shoe business again.  He died on July 5, 1926 at the age of 72, 16 months after the death of his wife.  We learn a lot more about Franklin who also went by F. P. from his obituary which was published in The Derry News on July 9, 1926.
