Wedding Wednesday – Eunice E Shackford Marries Nathan Jellison on May 23, 1863 in Waltham, Maine (Blog 471)

Eunice E Shackford the daughter of Jeremiah J Shackford was born about Sept 1844 in Maine.  We find her in the 1850 and 1860 censuses with her father, his wife Sarah (who we now believe to be his second wife), and siblings Sarah and John, Sybil, and Increase.

Eunice’s marriage on May 23, 1863 to Nathan Jellison in Waltham, Maine was announced in the Ellsworth American and The Republican Journal.
