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.

Treasure Chest Thursday – In 1874, Caroline E (Shackford) Palmer Must Obtain Her Husband’s Permission to Administer Her Brother’s (Thomas Shackford’s) Estate, (Blog 469)

Thomas Shackford, the son of William and Mercy (Rose) Shackford, my second great uncle was born on October 30, 1815 in Weymouth, Massachusetts.  Thomas was a very successful deaf-mute who received his early education at the American Asylum in Hartford, worked as a carpenter and became chairman and later treasurer of the Association of Deaf-Mutes. He was working on a petition for state funding when he died on his way home in Brookline on January 29, 1874 in Boston due to heart disease.  His last rites were held at his sister’s home (Caroline L Palmer) and he was buried in Weymouth, Massachusetts. 

Most likely the law required Thomas’ sister Caroline to first obtain permission from her husband, Charles L Palmer in order to be the administrator of her brother’s estate which is why a copy of this letter of permission was filed in Thomas’ probate records.

Charles L Palmer gives permission to Caroline E (Shackford) Palmer to Manager Sister's EstateI, Charles L Palmer, husband of Caroline E Palmer, hereby assent to the appointment of my said wife as administratrix of the estate of Thomas Shackford late of Brookline, Massachusetts, deceased.

               Brookline, Feby 10th 1874

               Charles E Palmer

The other treasure we find in the probate record is this listing of Thomas’ living siblings.  My second great grandfather, William Brown Shackford was not included as he had died in 1866 but the listing includes my third great grandmother Mercy (Rose) (Shackford) Newell.

Sunday’s Obituary – Mrs Melvina (Currier) Shackford (1840-1917) – Died on her 77th Birthday (Blog 465)

Obituary Melvina ShackfordMrs. Melvina C. Shackford, widow
of the late Granville Shackford, and
a highly esteemed lady, died Monday
morning at 4 o’clock in this city, at
the age of 77 years. Mrs. Shackford
made her home in Saco for many
year and went from there to Old
Orchard where she took an active
part in the Methodist church. She
was of a loving and kind disposition,
and her friends speak of her in glow-
ing terms for her many acts of kind-
ness.
Mrs. Shackford died on her birth-
day.
She is survived by one daughter,
Mrs. Howard Gilpatric of Hingham,
and one grandson, Howard Gilpatric,
also of Hingham.

 

Melvina Currier was born to Oren and Patience (Hanson) Currier on July 30, 1840 in Dover, Maine.   Her mother died in Dec 1856 when she was 16 and father remarried in September 1857.  In 1860 Melina was living at home in Athens working as a factory hand and her father died in 1864.  By 1870 she had moved to Biddeford where she was running a boarding house for a cotton mill.

On June 12, 1872 Melvina married Granville Shackford, a civil war veteran.  They moved to Saco and lived on Boom Road where Granville had a farm and served on the city council.  By 1900 they had moved to Old Orchard where they resided until Granville’s death on December 11, 1916.  Granville’s pension was transferred to her on January 5, 1917 but she died six months later on July 30, 1917 in Biddeford.  She was buried in Laurel Hill Cemetery in Saco.  We’re fortunate to have found her obituary which lets us know that she was very involved in the Methodist church and was loved by many in her community.

CHILDREN:

Jesse Maria Shackford (1873-1939) – married Howard Gilpatric in 1899.

Sunday’s Obituary – Serena (Shackford) Sawyer (1843-1905), daughter of Christopher Shackford of Sanford and Saco, Maine (Blog 464)

Serena Shackford the daughter of Christopher and Mehitable (Maddox) Shackford was born April 6, 1905 in Sanford, Maine and lived with her parents in Sanford, then Saco till sometime after 1860.  Her father died on April 2, 1870 and his will stated she should receive $100 and housing in his home.  It does not appear that she stayed in his home as she was living on her own in 1870 in Saco where she worked in a cotton mill.

Serena married Elbridge L Sawyer on April 8, 1872 and had two children, Charles Elbridge Sawyer and Harry Shackford Sawyer in 1874 and 1877 respectively before Elbridge’s death on June 8, 1878 in South Hadley, Massachusetts of pyemia or sepsis. Serena raised her two young sons at 9 Dyer Street in Saco, Maine where she lived with her step mother Louisa and sister Georgianna and then lived with her son Harry.  She died in Saco, Maine at age 62 of pneumonia on October 18, 1905 and was buried in the Laurel Hill Cemetery.  Her obituary was published in the Biddeford Weekly Journal:

Military Monday – Mrs Abby Augusta (Hill) Meserve References Samuel Shackford’s Service as Basis of Her Daughters of the American Revolution Application (Blog 458)

Abby Augusta Hill, the daughter of Levi Gerrish and Abigail  Burnham (Shackford) Hill was born August 16, 1842 in Somersworth, New Hampshire.  She lived with her parents until her marriage to Major William Neal Meserve on November 30, 1864.

William served another term in the military from  December 14, 1864 to June 17, 1865 and then the new family lived in Roxbury, Massachusetts with William’s father Isaac in 1865.  He must have needed time to rest as he had served at the Battles of South Mountain, Antietam, Sulphur Springs, Fredericksburg, Vicksburg, Jackson, Campbell’s Sta., Knoxville, Spottslyvania, North Anna, Cold Harbor, Petersburgh, Weldon R. R., and Peebles Farm.  They moved to Norfolk, Virginia before 1870 where William worked as a dentist.  He then pursued the ministry obtaining a degree from the Theological Institute and was ordained in 1874 in Santa Cruz, California.  He lived in Oakland, Antioch, Philadelphia and Durango before the family settled in Litchfield, Connecticut in 1880 where William worked as a clergyman.

By 1881 the family was in Durango, Colorado and in June 1885 William moved the family to El Paso, Colorado.  Sometime thereafter William abandoned the family and moved to California alone.

Abby remained in Colorado and around 1897 applied for and was accepted into the Daughters of the American Revolution as member 21103.

Treasure Chest Thursday – Bartlett Chauncy Shackford’s Marriage Record (Blog 456)

In Nov 2015 we could not find a marriage record for Bartlett Chauncey Shackford and Rose Winchester Karnan and wrote a blog about using a source from Bartlett’s College Directory to determine their marriage date.  Last week through Randy Seaver’s Oct 2, 2017 post titled “Mining the “Massachusetts State Vital Records, 1841-1920″ Collection on FamilySearch” we discovered that this marriage record for Bartlett had been added to Family Search.  From this source we see the names of their parents:  Charles Chauncy and Flora A (Wood) Shackford and Robert W and Harriet (Winchester) Karnan.  We also learn where Bartlett and Rose lived at the time of their marriage, learn that they were married at her house at 48 Birch St, Roslindale, Mass.  We also discovered that she was working as a School teacher at the time of their marriage and that he was a physician.  Here’s a copy of the marriage Record.

Sunday’s Obituary – Antoinette C Laurette Shackford of Paris, France Died in Newmarket, NH (1809-1895) (Blog 450)

Antoinette C Laurette, the daughter of Jean B Laurette, a Napoleon sympathizer who left France for the United States when she was just ten years old was born in May 1808 in Paris, France.  When she turned twenty, she married William A Shackford of Newington, New Hampshire.  We find her living with William in Newmarket in the 1850, 1860, 1870, and 1880 census records.  They raised five children before her husband died in Newmarket on September 3, 1885.  She died ten years later in Newmarket on November 22, 1895 where this obituary was published.  She was buried in Riverside Cemetery.

 

Obituary Mrs Antoinette C Shackford MRS. ANTOINETTE C SHACKFORD, The Newmarket Advertiser (Newmarket, New Hampshire), 23 November 1805
The Newmarket Advertiser, 23 Nov 1805

MRS. ANTOINETTE C SHACKFORD.

Mrs Antoinette C Shackford, widow
of William A. Shackford, died at her
home in Newmarket this (Friday) morn-
ing, after a few day’s illness, of peri-
tonitis. She was born in Paris, France,
May 24, 1808, and came to Boston with
her parents Dec 31, 1818. Her father,
Jean B Laurette, was a sympathizer
with Napoleon I., and was obliged to
flee to America, with his wife, two sons
and two daughters. M. Laurette was an
intimate friend of Gen Lafayette, and
entertained him on his visit to America.
The deceased was married to William
A. Shackford in 1829 and has resided
in Newmarket ever since her marriage.
She was the mother of three sons and
two daughters, only one of whom, Miss
Mary, survives her. Some six years
ago she lost her eyesight, and has been
tenderly cared for ever since by her sur-
viving child. Mrs. Shackford was of a
kindly, genial disposition, and was high-
ly esteemed by all who knew her.
The funeral will occur on Monday at
2 o’clock P.M., from her late residence.

CHILDREN:

John Laurent Shackford (1829-1892) – married Mary Jane Rollins

Mark William Walker Shackford (1831-after Aug 9, 1887)

Charles Henry Shackford (1833-1865)

Martha Catherine Shackford (1840-1886) – married Henry Clay Howard and moved to Hot Springs, AK until she became ill and returned home to Newmarket

Mary Elizabeth Shackford (1842-1921)

Note:  We find Antoinette’s name listed as Mrs Antoinette C. Laurette Shackford, Widow Agnette Shackford, Miss Entwinnett C Laurent, Miss Entwinett C. Lanveat, Entwinett A Lambert, Entwinett C Lamest, Entwinett C Laureat, Antonett Shackford, Catherine Shackford, Annie C Shackford, Annette C Shackford.  We have searched multiple sources using all these variants of her last name for any information about her father Jean B (we’ve also tried John…) but have found no records of him or her mother who is listed as Catherine Jessop in Antoinette’s obituary.  We did however find her will which we’ll share in a future blog.
