Sunday’s Obituary – Edward Warren Shackford, of Eastport, Maine, Weymouth, Massachusetts, and Belfast, Maine (1846-1921) (Blog 486)

Obituary Edward W Shackford The Republican journal. [volume], November 17, 1921Edward W. Shackford died at his home
at the corner of High and Peach streets
last Sunday night at the age of 75 years.
He came to Belfast about four years ago
from East Weymouth, Mass., when his
health failed and he was obliged to give
up his occupation as a house painter. At
that time he had a shock but was able to
be about as usual until two months ago
he had a severe one from which he never
rallied and failed gradually until the end
In all this time he had the unremitting
care of his devoted wife. During his
residence he had made many friends, par-
ticularly among the Odd Fellows, as for
over fifty years he had been a member of
Crescent Lodge, I. O. O. F., of East
Weymouth. Waldo Lodge members have
been attentive to him in his illness. His
widow and one son, Charles L. Shack-
ford of Brookline, Mass., survive him.
Their only daughter, Mrs. A. D. Brewer
of Stockton Springs, died here last sum-
mer. His son and wife arrived here last
Saturday and remained until after the
funeral which took place at his late home
Tuesday evening at 7 o’clock under the
auspices of Waldo Lodge with Rev. N. F.
Atwood of Searsport officiating. His
remains will be taken to East Weymouth
for interment next Friday.

Edward Warren Shackford, the son of Charles William Shackford and Sophia Roberts was born on May 25, 1846 in Eastport, Maine.  He moved into his grandfather’s home when he was seven after his father, master of the Brig Esther Elizabeth was reported lost at sea. Edward then worked in the dry goods business, and eventually became a house painter.

On January 12, 1871 Edward married Georgianna Lee in East Weymouth, Massachusetts.  The marriage was reported in the Ellsworth American.  Edward continued to work as a housepainter in the Boston area while he and his wife raised two children.  As his obituary stated, in 1917 he moved to Belfast, Maine after an illness.  He made many friends in Belfast where he became involved in the Walden Lodge Odd Fellows.  Unfortunately Edward died from a cerebral hemorrhage in Belfast on November 13, 1921 four years after his move. His body was returned to Massachusetts and he was buried in the Fairmont Cemetery in Weymouth, Massachusetts.

Wedding Wednesday – Carrie Marie Shackford in the 1900 Census on the Same Page Twice — with Her Parents as Single and 10 Lines Later as Married with Her New Husband (Blog 466)

Carrie Marie Shackford, the daughter of Edward Warren and Georgiana (Lee) Shackford was born in Weymouth, Massachusetts on March 15, 1880.  On June 5, 1880 the census taker recorded the 2/12 year old Carrie as living with her parents, her three year old brother Charles.

On April 15, 1900, twenty year old Carrie who was listed as 21 on her marriage record, married William M Healey, a widow who was listed as 39 years old on the marriage record. Marriage Record Carrie M Shackford William M Healey 1900We’re not sure of William’s age as he is listed in the 1860 census as 3, the 1870 census as age 14, the 1880 census as age 21, in his first marriage in 1892 as age 34, and in the 1900 census as age 37.  We’d assume the earlier records are correct and that William was 44 when he married Carrie.

One June 7, 1900 Carrie was listed in the census records twice, once as the single daughter of Edward W Shackford living at 3 Hazelwood Street and later on the same page as the wife of William M Healey, living at 38 Munroe Street.

We don’t know who the census taker spoke to when they listed Carrie as single living with her parents – was it a neighbor who didn’t know she was now married or was it her parents who she hadn’t told that she’d gotten married?  What we can tell is that the two residencies were 1/3 mile from one another.

Two weeks after the census was taken, Carrie gave birth to a son, Lee S Healey, born on on June 26, 1900 who died of meningitis six months later.  Her second son, Stanley Kenneth Healey was born on December 10, 1901.

In 1910, Carrie had returned home to live with her parents while William was living elsewhere in Boston.  We haven’t learned what happened to William.  Carrie moved to Maine and married Ancel Dawson Brewer, a carpenter from Canada on July 23, 1919 who was eight years her junior.  They were married two years until she died of peritonitis at the age of 41 on May 11, 1921.  Mr Brewer married again in 1924 and died at the age of 83 on Dec 24, 1971.

Stanley Kenneth Healey (1901-????) – married Mary Ellen Wilson and Alice Edith Southworth
