Treasure Chest Thursday – The 1895 Book History of Pembroke, N. H. Includes Descendents of Theodore and Mary (Bartlett) Shackford (Blog 394)

Rev N. F Carter’s 1895 book History of Pembroke, N. H. 1730-1895: In Two Volumes, Vol. II.-Genealogical includes a chapter titled THE SHACKFORD FAMILY which starts with Theodore Shackford, the son of John and Dorcas (Lovejoy) Shackford.

Rev Carter didn’t seem to have a birth year for Theodore so we looked further and found Theodore Shackford in two different applications to the Daughters of the American Revolution, both of  which use Theodore (and others) as the basis of their applications.  Mrs Nellie Blake Appleton, no 25281 uses the birth year of 1825 in her 1897 application and Mrs Gertrude Colvin Ireland uses the date of 1833.  Both applications state that Theodore was born in Chester, New Hampshire and  was a member of the Committee of Safety of New Hampshire and Nellie’s also states that he signed the Association Test.

We did find sources for Theodore’s marriage to Mary Bartlett on Feb 14, 1754 and also believe he is the Theodore found in the 1790 census in Rockingham and the 1800 census in Allenstown.  We’ll research the descendents listed in this book in future blogs.  Meanwhile, if you’re a descendant of Theodore, you are probably eligible to apply to become a member of the Daughters or Sons of the American Revolution!

Treasure Chest Thursday – Shackford’s in Carter’s 1895 History of Pembroke, N.H. (Blog 332)

Today while searching for sources for Ann Martin Shackford’s marriage to Isaac Fitts we had three tremendous finds:

Rev N. F.Carter’s History of Pembroke, N.H. written in 1895 which stated that Ann Shackford married Isaac Fitts and included a lot of information about her ancestry.

James Hill Fitt’s 1869 Genealogy of the Fitts or Fitz Family in America which stated that they were married April 1, 1841 and provided some great information about their children.

FamilySearch’s description of the Fitts-Weston Family Bible which was filmed in 1971 and is at the Family History Center in Salt Lake City which stated that they were married and gave a marriage year.

Interestingly we have not found a marriage record in FamilySearch or Ancestry.  While all the documents were interesting, because our focus is on Shackfords, we’ll share our transcription of The Shackford Family, page 295 Carter’s History of Pembroke, N.H. It’s clearly a treasure and great starting point for those researching Shackford Family Historians!  The blue highlights refer to previous blogs about some of the Shackfords mentioned.
