Callie Evelyn (McLelland) Shackford’s Obituary (1864 – 1941) (Blog 503)

Callie Evelyn McLelland, the daughter of Hezekiah Enoch George and Margaret (Fraser) McLelland was born May 31 1864 in Montgomery, Alabama, the same month her father died in the Civil War. She was 19 when she married Dr William H Shackford, a physician from Virginia on December 12, 1883 – William most likely met Callie through his mother Martha Cole McLelland.

Callie and William returned to Virginia where William continued his practice in Walkerton and Stevensville where they raised three children. They moved to Roanoke about 1902 where William took a job providing medical care to a group of organized shopmen. In 1906, William died at the age of 50 when a bale of hay was accidentally dropped on him from the third floor of a building. After William’s death, Callie moved to Richmond where she lived with her daughter’s family and became involved in the Monument Methodist Church.

Callie died at the age of 77 of heart disease on December 16, 1941 in Richmond after a short illness. This obituary was published in the Times Dispatch on Dec 17th prior funeral which was conducted by the Rev Joseph S Johnston of Warrenton. She was buried at Riverview Cemetery.

Alice M (Shackford) Powell (1873-1905) of Barnstead, NH died of Heart Disease at age 32 (Blog 502)

Alice M Shackford, the daughter of William Henry Shackford and Mary Augusta Smart was born in Barnstead, New Hampshire on Feb 14, 1873. In June 1880 she was living in Barnstead with her parents and two siblings where her father worked as a hotelkeeper.

Alice was working as a sticher when she married Harry Lewis Powell, a shoemaker on October 27, 1894.

They remained in Barnstead living with Alice’s step grandmother in 1900 – he worked as a stock fitter in a shoe shop and she as a forelady in a shoe shop

Sadly, Alice died at the age of 32 on June 28, 1905 of a long term heart condition which seems to have been diagnosed when she was about 17 years old. She was buried in Riverview Cemetery in Barnstead. Her husband Harry Lewis Powell remarried widow Mary E (Emery) Higgins in August 1930.

Alice Baldwin Shackford (1873-1936) married William Frederick Pickard on April 11, 1900 (Blog 501)

Alice Baldwin Shackford, the youngest child of Benjamin Franklin and Grace Grizella (Watson) Shackford was born March 2, 1876 in Chelsea, Massachusetts. She was only three when her 40 year old father suddenly died of heart disease. Alice lived at home with her mother and at age 24 was working as a cashier when she married William Frederick Pickard, the son of William Pickard and Ann Fitzgerald.

Unfortunately we don’t know much about Alice other than finding her name on documents – she lost a day old child on November 23, 1903 in Chelsea and is listed on her husband’s Sept 12, 1918 WWI draft registration. She’s also listed in the 1920, the 1930, and the 1940 census records, and in multiple city directories. From those records, we can tell the family lived at 154 Sagamore in Chelsea, 16 Harvard St in Everett, and 35 Glendale in Everett. We’d love to know more about Alice’s life.

Alice’s husband William died on January 15, 1936 in Everett and she lived with her daughter, Lena G Pickard, a school teacher until she died on October 21, 1943 in Everett.

CHILDREN:

Lena G Pickard (1900-1960) – lived in Everett, Massachusetts, worked as a school teacher

unnamed (daughter) Pickard (1903-1903)

Memorial Day – Honoring SHACKFORDs who Died While Serving in the United States Armed Forces (Blog 500)

Memorial Day, originally known as Decoration Day, was a day to commemorate the men who died while serving on either side of the Civil War.   Today it is a national holiday for remembering the men and women who died while while serving in the United States Armed Forces.  Today we recognize the three SHACKFORDs who died while serving in the military.  If I missed any, I’d love to hear from you!

REVOLUTIONARY WAR

Seth Ring Shackford (1754-1777) – son of Samuel Shackford and Elizabeth Ring.  He was 23 when he was killed in action on October 7, 1777 while serving in Capt Frye’s Company, Colonel Scammell’s 3rd New Hampshire Regiment. at Saratoga, New York. We assume he was one of many soldiers buried on the battlefield.

CIVIL WAR

Gilman Shackford (1828-1864), son of Andrew and Hannah Shackford of Alfred, Maine served with Co B, 8th Maine Infantry.  He was 35 when he died at Hammond Hospital from wounds on August 14, 1864.  He is buried in grave 12609 in Arlington. He left a wife – Celia (Wormwood) Shackford.

Walter Emory Shackford (1847-1865) – son of John William Shackford and Mary Cole McLelland.  Walter served as a Private in Company H, 5th Regiment, Virginia Calvary. He was only 18 when he died on April 27, 1865 from injuries incurred at “Five Forks” in Dinwiddie.

Eva Etta (Shackford) (Towle) Hurd of Laconia, NH and Malden, MA had 18 Children, Died at Age 44 of Empyema after 3 weeks of the Flu (Blog 499)

Eva Etta Shackford, the daughter of Orra Leonard and Victoria (Rundlett) Shackford was born Feb 25, 1881 in Laconia, New Hampshire.  Although her marriage record stated she was 18, she was still 17 on April 9, 1898 when she married Albert Clifton Towle, a machinist in Malden, Massachusetts.  On January 12, 1900 Eva filed for divorce and in June 4, 1900, both Eva and Albert were living with their respective parents in Malden, Massachusetts.  The divorce was finalized on June 12, 1900 with the custody of minor child given to Eva.  Soon thereafter Eva married Robert James Hurd, also a machinist on June 22, 1901 — Albert married Martha Alice Barnes on June 5 of the same year.

Eva and Robert remained in Malden, Massachusetts living in at least three different locations – 439 Lynn, 916 Easton, 46 Fenwick – in the 1910 census Eva reported having had seven children, five of which were living.

In 1913 they moved to Lakeport, New Hampshire where Robert continued to work as a machinist and also served on the Hook and Ladder Company.  By 1920 the family included 10 children and Robert was working as the foreman of a machine shop.  Again the family had to move every few years and living at 177 Valley, 16 Rowen, and 2 Moulton Street in Lakeport.

Eva Etta Shackford Hurd Death RecordEva had four more children including a set of twins before she died of empyema and influenza on Jan 8, 1926 in Laconia.  She was buried in the Bayside Cemetery in Laconia.  Robert remarried Jan 1, 1935 the widow Cora M (Forrest) Smith and lived to age 74.

If you’d like to see a photograph of Eva Etta or her large family, there are a few photographs that have been shared on Ancestry.com – we’re not sure who is the owner of these photos but have started asking permission to share them on this blog. We’d love to learn more about Eva as a person beyond birth and census records — we’re searching for any newspaper articles or information from others.

CHILDREN:

Florence Hazel Towle (1899-1907) –  the birth record shows a Lawrence H Towle, male but the census and death record list this child who died young as Florence, female.  There is a question if these are two separate children but Eva mentioned only Florence when cooresponding with Samuel Burnham Shackford, her divorce record says minor child, and the 1900 census shows a Florence.

Leonard Robert Hurd (1901-1959) – married Irene Parker Philbrick – served in WWII

Louise Victoria Hurd (1903-1985) – married Earl George Clough

William Edgar Hurd (1905-1989) – married Eunice Ruth Ludlow

Joseph T Hurd (1906-1910) – died of pleurisy

Eva May Hurd (1908-2002) – married Clarence Bruce Papps

Walter Shackford Hurd (1909-1980) – married Jennie Louise Ferri

Arthur Edgar Hurd (1910-1975) – married Gladys Blackey

Ernest Hurd (1910-1993) – served in WWII

Oscar Leroy Hurd (1913-1922)

Evelyn Mae Hurd (1915-1997) – married Edward Harry Miner

Harry Hurd (1916-1987) – married Rita Dorothy Boucher, served in Navy in WWII

Lawrence Edward Hurd (1917-2009) – married Florence Ellen Blackey, served in the Navy in WWII

Marshall A Hurd (1919-1992) – married Jeannette Morin, served in the Army in WWII

Frances Hurd (1920 (twin)-2008) – married Lionel Joseph Cloutier

Frank Randlet Hurd (1920 (twin) -1993) – married Alice Sina Wilson, served in the Army in WWII

Charles Augustus Hurd (1922-2011) – married Dorothy Pearl Stone), served in Navy in WWII

Keith Lewis Hurd (1923-2002) – married Amelia Mildred Nelson), served in Army in WWII (was only 17 when enlisted)

Eva’s Shackford Ancestry includes Captain Samuel Shackford who served in the Revolutionary War and is mentioned in multiple Lineage Books:  Eva Etta Shackford (1881-1926), Orra Leonard Shackford (1856-1927), George W. Shackford (1832-1869), Josiah Ring Shackford (1796-1874), Josiah Shackford (1767-1843), Capt Samuel Shackford (1728-1812), William Shackford (1706-1773), Samuel Shackford (abt 1674-1731), William Shackford (abt 1641-1720)

Eva is my seventh cousin removed with a common ancestor of William Shackford & Deborah Trickey.  The relationship is too distant to share DNA with her descendants.

Research Questions:  Are there any newspaper articles that mention members of this family which may help us learn more about their lives?

Sunday’s Obituary – Bernice Evagaline (Norton) Shackford (1885-1916) (Blog 496)

Bernice Evagaline Norton was born Feb 11, 1885 in Buxton, Maine to Jonathan G and Josephine (Elder) Norton.  She attended Buxton High School and married Marshall Frank Shackford, the son of  Robert F and Caroline P (Usher) Shackford on Sept 8, 1908.  After their marriage, Marshall worked as a brakeman on the steam railroad.

On February 2, 1914, Bernice who was now the mother of a three year old became the postmistress in White Rock, Maine.  Sadly she died at the age of 31 on October 10, 1916 of uremia and complications of a pregnancy.  She was buried in the Highland Cemetery in Buxton, Maine.

This obituary was published on December 8, 1916 in the Biddeford Weekly by one of Bernice’s friends in the:

BERNICE NORTON SHACKFORD The Tribute of a Friend, The Biddeford Weekly Journal (Biddeford, Maine), 8 December 1916In the first shock of the tidings of
the sudden and unexpected passing
of a deer and tried friend, it is not
easy to think of anything but the
blow of the loss. But after a little,
we wish to tell others of the beauty,
and truth of the spirit which has
gone from earth; to sat what, per-
haps, we have all too sparingly said
to the departed in life.
It is thus that I wish to bear my
testimony to the character and life
of my friend who is gone. I knew her
well as a girl hardly past child-
hood, as young woman, wife and
monther, and each of these posit-
ions, she was amply worthy of the
love and appreciation which ever
followed her. Schoolmates know each
other very well, classmates even
better. We were both. As I look
back over the years we then spent
together, I wonder at the beauty of
the character which I then apprecia-
ted too little.
I knew her as a brilliant scholar,
who never did anything which was
not the soul of scholastic honor; as a
faithful, earnest teacher, and as a
loyal, true wife and mother, and a
dutiful and affectionate daughter,
even when family cares had come
into her life and occupied much of
her time.
Wherever she went she won and
kept the love of those about her. She
was a sweet, sunny Christian who
carried her profession into her work
and play. And she was a true, loving
friend. To her, those who were her
friends appeared to possess virtues
which they themselves realized where
not what she though them; but her
beautiful faith made them anxious to
be as near what she thought them as
they could. Her influence was ever
upward, ever towards making us
better.
She has gone from our sight, but
she has drawn our hearts with her,
nearer to heaven; and in our grief,
we seem to hear her say, “Come
dear ones whom I loved, I can’t be
quite happy, even here, until you
come too.”
The following poem, written by a
neighbor, touchingly expresses the
feelings of those of us who knew and
loved her.
Lines written on the death of Ber-
nice Norton Shackford wife of Mar-
shall Shackford, White Rock, Maine.
You have laid her away in her beau-
ty to rest,
And sad, oh sad, is the home!
The Savior has taken the fairest,
the best;
The light of the household is gone!
We shall miss that dear form from
its love-wonted place.
We shall miss the footsteps light
fall
And the sweet smile and the dear
winning face,
And the voice that was sweetest of
all.
For the cheer that she gave, and the
words that she spake
Were filled with the music of love;
Forget not, dear friends, that Ber-
nice is gone.
For God in His wisdom knew best
He took her from earth, and all of
its cares,
And gave her eternal rest
Just a little while longer to want,
watch and weep,
A little while longer to pray,
And the voice of the Savior will
call us all home
And we’ll meet her, some beautiful
day.
– Flora Gustin
White Rock, Maine

Sunday’s Obituary – Harry L Shackford of Kennebunk and Biddeford, ME, (1884-1953) (Blog 495)

Birth Record Harry L ShackfordHarry L Shackford, the fourth child of Stephen Frank and Ada Louise (Smith) Shackford was born May 9, 1884 in Freedom, New Hampshire.    By the age of 16 he was working as a day laborer at his brother-in-law’s home in Wakefield, Massachusetts.

Harry married Pauline Fielding, the daughter of Thomas and Mary A (Nedeau) Fielding in Kennebunk, Maine on October 28, 1903 and by 1910 they were raising two children and both working as shoe makers in Exeter, New Hampshire.

Harry Lumon Shackford WWI draft registration clipping

Harry’s September 9, 1918 draft registration seems to show a middle name of Luman (while the writing is decipher, assuming this is correct spelling as this is the middle name of one of the grandchildren).

By 1920, Harry had six children and was working as a fish dealer.  After the birth of his seventh child, Ernest Byron Shackford, he and his wife Pauline and his two daughters and their husbands who also had just had newborns all baptized their children together in one baptismal ceremony at the Methodist Episcopal Church!

Harry continued working in the fish business and purchased the fish business of E.C. Snowden on a wharf in Kennebunk in November 1829.  In the 1930 census he listed his occupation as a fish salesman and as a proprietor of a fish shop in the 1940 census.  Shackford & Gooch Marketing abt 1953We’re not sure when he and his son-in-law opened the famous Shackford & Gooch fish store but we do know it was a very well known and popular local and tourist spot in Kennebunk.

The Shackford’s also hosted many holiday and celebratory events with their eight children in their home in Biddeford and at Sebago Lake.  In  their later years they started to spend their winters in Saint Petersburg, Florida.

Harry died suddenly in Biddeford on July 7, 1953.  His obituary reads:

Tombstone Tuesday – Rosana (Shackford) York (1824-1910) of Waterbury, Vermont (Blog 494)

Rosana Shackford, the daughter of Samuel and Susanna (Hobbs) Shackford was born August 25, 1824 in Duxbury, Vermont.  She was seven when her father died, 10 when her mother married Ezra French, and 16 when she married 33 year old Alfred York, the son of John Bradbury and Mary Polly (Emerson) York in Waterbury, Vermont on June 23, 1841.  Albert had six children from a previous marriage – Bradbury, George, Daniel W, Ann, Jonas, and John W.  We have not yet learned what happened to Albert’s first wife Abigail (Watson) York.

In 1850 George, Jonas, and John were living with Alfred and Rosana.  After George died in Virginia during the Civil War, his youngest daughter Lizzie moved in with Alfred and Rosana.

Alfred died on August 4, 1890 in Waterbury and was buried in the Hope Cemetery in Waterbury, Vermont.  His will which was written in 1886 mentioned his children Bradbury York, Ann Simonds, Janus York, John W. York, Daniel York and his grandchildren  Lizzie York and Imagine Jones, both children of his son George York who died in the Civil War.
