Sunday’s Obituary – The Late Thomas Shackford (1815-1874) – Resolutions by the Boston Deaf Mute Library Association (Blog 449)

Thomas Shackford, the son of William and Mercy (Rose) Shackford was born on October 30, 1815 in Weymouth, Massachusetts.  He received his education at the American Asylum for the Education and Instruction of the Deaf and Dumb in Hartford, Connecticut and was identified as deaf & dumb in the 1850 census where he is shown as working in Nashville, New Hampshire.

By 1854 he was living in Dorchester, Massachusetts where he was elected Chairman of the Boston Society of Deaf Mutes and in 1855 he was living with his brother Abner R and his mother Mercy (Rose) (Shackford) Newell  in the same dwelling as his brother William B Shackford.

Thomas remained active in deaf-mute organizations becoming Treasurer of the Deaf-Mutes of Boston in 1872 and presenting a petition to the Massachusetts Senate on behalf of the Deaf-Mute Organization.

 

Thomas fell down dead on the sidewalk on his to his home in Brookline on January 29, 1874 in Boston.  The cause of death was heart disease.  His last rites were held at his sister’s home (Caroline L Palmer) and he was buried in Weymouth, Massachusetts.  The Boston Deaf Mute Library Association honored him with this beautiful tribute:

Wedding Wednesday – Cora A Shackford Marries Rev Charles Tilton in 1883 (Blog 448)

Cora A Shackford, the daughter of Nathaniel and Mary E (Cleaves) Shackford was born March 22, 1860 in Lowell, Massachusetts.  She attended school in Charlestown and in Lasselle Seminary, Auburndale.  We presume she met Charles Tilton, the son of Rev Rufus and Harriet (Newell) Tilton, her future husband while he was boarding at her parent’s home in 1880.  They married on June 7, 1883, the day after he graduated from Boston University School of Theology.

Tilton-Shackford Wedding Boston Daily Globe June 8, 1883 at Newspaper Archive“Tilton-Shackford. A largely-attended wedding took place last evening in the Monument Square M. E. Church, between Miss Cora A Shackford, daughter of Mr and Mrs Nathaniel Shackford of Charlestown, and Rev Charles Tilton, pastor of the City Point M E Church, South Boston. The couple were united in the bonds of matrimony by Rev W T Perrin, pastor of the church, after which ceremony a private reception was held at the residence of the bride, on Union street. The ushers were C W Marsh, Frank Dantforth and Thomas Hodgden of Charlestown, and Henry Munday of Cambridge. The happy couple will reside in South Boston.

The couple moved a lot as Charles served in many Churches – in South Boston, Haverhill, Winthrop, Salem, Derry, New Hampshire, and Byfield.  They returned to South Boston as their final church assignment in “active ministry”.   Cora died in Byfield, Massachusetts on March 11, 1930 after a long illness followed by Charles five years later on August 2, 1935.

Shopping Saturday – Diary of Joseph Wesley Shackford – Available on ebay (Blog 447)

Diary of Joseph Wesley Shackford On Sale at e-BayThe book, Diary of Joseph Wesley Shackford is being sold on ebay – we’d be normally be interested in this book but already have a copy.

Here’s our summary of this wonderful book:

In 1868, Joseph Wesley Shackford, who had grown up in Virginia during the Civil War, was sent to New England at age 20 to meet his New England relatives. He had grown up in the South because his father, John William Shackford had moved from New Hampshire to Virginia to pursue the ministry, leaving nine siblings in New England. Fortunately, Joseph described the relatives he encountered on this trip in his diary documenting his relationships to those individuals and in some cases how, “love for his fallen country” is stirred during conversations with family.

After Joseph returns home from his trip, he describes his life in exceptional detail, his personal growth as a minister, and his love for his future wife Cora.  His writing style is elegant and is one a few documents that provides and excellent description of the life of someone who lived through the Civil War.

We’re hoping that a descendant of Joseph Wesley Shackford or someone interested in Shackford family history ends up with this book.

Treasure Chest Thursday – An Act to Authorize Richard Shackford and George Shackford to Build a Wharf in East Boston – 1854 (Blog 446)

While researching Richard Shackford, we discovered this document which authorized him to build a Wharf in East Boston.  We’ve since found city directories which place the wharf from Border, foot of Lexington street and know that Richard lived at 15 Lexington.  We’ve added a map at the end of blog that shows that location – we don’t know the history of this area but it appears that the area where the original wharf was may have been filled in.

An Act to Build a Wharf - Richard Shackford and George Shackford

An Act to authorize Richard Shackford and George Shackford to build
a Wharf.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Represnta-
tives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of
the same, as follows:
Richard Shackford and George Shackford, proprietors of
land and flats in that part of Boston called East Boston,
bounding on Border Street, are hereby authorized to build
and maintain a wharf upon and from their said premises
into Boston harbor, as far as the line established by the
act entitled “An Act concerning the Harbor of Boston,”
passed on the seventeenth day of March, in the year one
thousand eight hundred and forty; and shall have the right
to lay vessels at the end and sides of said wharf, and to
receive wharfage and dockage therefor; provided, however,
that this grant shall not be construed to extend to any flats
or lands of this Commonwealth, lying in front of the flats
of any other person, or which would be comprehended by
the true lines of such flats continued to said commissioners’
line; and provided, further, that so much of said wharf, as
may be constructed below low-water mark, shall be built on
piles, which piles shall not be nearer to each other than six
feet, in the direction of the stream, and eight feet in a
transverse direction, and that this act shall in nowise impair
the legal rights of any person whatever. [Approved by the
Governor, March 24, 1854.]

Today’s map of Boston from Google Maps showing the wharf area at the intersection of Border and Lexington St.

Probably location of Richard and George Shackford's Wharf

Wednesday Wedding – Richard Shackford, Wharf Builder of Boston Marries His Housekeeper, Isiphene Mann Eighteen Months After His First Wife Dies (Blog 445)

We learned about Mrs Isiphene Shackford from this obituary found in the the Bar Harbor Mount Desert Herald

Mrs Isiphene Shackford Slips from South Surry, Bar Harbor Mount Desert Herald (Bar Harbor, Maine), 22 January 1886
Bar Harbor Mount Desert Herald, 22 Jan 1886

The remains of Mrs. Isiphene Shackford who died at her home in Winthrop, Mass., on New Year’s day, were brought to Surry for internment, and placed in Morgan’s Bay cemetery, on Thursday last.

The Faylene Hutton Cemetery Collection listed her husband as Richard Shackford which helped us place him as Richard, the son of Samuel and Hannah (Currier) Shackford who was born on October 3, 1812 in Chester, New Hampshire.  On March 22, 1840, he married Elizabeth Rankin who died in Winthrop on May 30, 1864.

We don’t know when Isiphene started working as Richard’s housekeeper but the 1865 census taken on May 13, 1865 after her death shows Richard Shackford, age 53 living in Winthrop with his housekeeper, Isiphenia Mann, age 24.

They married on December 7 of that year:Marriage Record Richard Shackford Isiphene Mann

MARRIAGES REGISTERED IN THE Town of Winthrop for the Year eighteen hundred and sixty-five, page 5 Richard Shackford, Winthrop, age 53, Wharf Builder, born Chester, N.H., parents Samuel & Hannah Schackford, Second, Porter M Winton Pastor, M. E. Chc, Winthrop
Isiphenia Mann, Winthrop, age 25, born Surry, Me, parents Robert & Hannah Mann

Isiphenia whose name is spelled many ways – Isiphenia, Isiphena, Josephine, Isiphemia, and Isiphene was the daughter of Robert and Hannah (Eaton) Mann, born in Surry, Maine on February 21, 1841.  She and her husband Richard are found in the 1870 and 1880 census records living in Winthrop — Richard with an occupation as a bridge builder – his previous occupations were wharf builder, pile driver.  He also served on the Boston Common Council and was a selectman in Boston during the Civil War

Isiphene was only 44 when she died of peritonitis on Jan 1, 1886 after being ill for five days.  She was buried in the Bayview Cemetery in her home town of Surry, Maine.  Her husband Richard died on April 6, 1895 and was buried in Wells, Maine next to his first wife Elizabeth.

Sunday’s Obituary – Jacob A Shackford of Malden, Mass (1855-1917) (Blog 444)

Jacob A Shackford, the son of John Shackford and his second wife Elizabeth F (Davis) Shackford was born July 2, 1855 in Malden, Massachusetts.   He worked first as a bookkeeper and then followed his father’s career as a grocer and merchant in the community of Malden where on June 4, 1878 he married Caroline C Fernald, daughter of Guy C and Phoebe C Fernald.  Around 1882 Jacob began working as a milkman, a career which he continued until his death living at 30 Spruce and then 4 Maplewood Street in Malden, Massachusetts, a property we believe he inherited from his father in 1893.

John died on May 17, 1917, about a month after his wife Carolyn died.  He was buried in the Forestdale Cemetery.

From his obituary we also learn that Jacob was very well known, played in the local brass band and had also been a known boxer and athlete in his youth.
