Sunday’s Obituary Charles Corliss Shackford, Jr (1910-1937), a Newburyport Native (Blog 468)

Obituary Charles Corliss Shackford 1937 Newburyport Daily News and Newburyport Herald (Newburyport, Massachusetts), 24 February 1937
Newburyport Daily News and Newburyport Herald, 24 February 1937

Funeral services were held yester-
day at 2 o’clock for Charles Corliss
Shackford, Jr. son of Mr. and Mrs.
Charles Corliss Shackford at their
home, 217 Boston avenue, Medford.
He was born in Newburyport and was
26 years of age. Besides his parents
he leaves a wife, Pauline; a sister
Mrs Ruth Holstrom of Worcester, a
brother Robert and other relatives.
Committal services were held in Law-
rence.

Although Charles Corliss Shackford’s obituary states he was born in Newburyport, his birth record reflects that the son of Charles Corliss and Florence (Hey) Shackford  was born April 25, 1910 at 76 Tremont St in Lawrence, Massachusetts which was the home of Frances’ parents.  Interestingly he is listed as the NoName Son, age 0/12 on the 1910 Census at 46 Bromfield St in Newburyport, Massachusetts which is dated 18 April indicating that the census was probably taken a few days after April 15th.

In 1920 nine-year old Charles was in Philadelphia with his family where his father was working as a lumber inspector and in 1930 twenty year old Charles living with his parents and working as a clerk for a furrier.  In 1936 he married Pauline Grace McNaught and sadly died shortly thereafter at the age of 26 on February 10, 1937.  He was buried at the Bellevue Cemetery in Lawrence, Massachusetts.

Wedding Wednesday – Charles Henry Shackford marries Clara E Burke in 1882 (Blog 364)

Charles Henry Shackford, the son of David and Lydia (Short) Shackford was born on March 20, 1857 in Newburyport, Massachusetts.  He was living in Newburyport in 1860 with his parents and siblings Emily, Mary Ann, and Sarah J  and lost his father when he was only five years old.  In 1865, 1870 and 1880 he was living with his mother who was working as a landlady and keeping house – the house in 1880 was at 37 Fair St.

Charles married Clara Eva Burke, the daughter of John and Mary N (Sawyard) Burke in Newburyport on March 29, 1882.  We tried to find a record in Newburyport newspapers but discovered that the newspapers from 1882 are not included in the collection.

Charles was working as a hairdresser at the time of his marriage and continued in that occupation until his death, listing his position as a barber later in life.  He also was elected councilman in Newburyport serving around the 1898 timeframe.  We also believe he was active in harbor activities, something we’ll continue to research as we continue to access the Newburyport newspapers available through the Newburyport Public Library.  Charles died on September 25, 1928 in Newburyport.
