In Strafford, of the influenza, Oct. 21st, Mr Samuel Shackford, in his 92d year, formerly of Newington. He has been throughout his life a remarkable man for his industrious, frugal, and upright habits. He retained his mental powers to the close of his life perhaps unsurpassed by any person living to so great an age. Com.
We wish to thank Jeffrey James who gave us permission to share a picture of Samuel's gravestone which he took for FindAGrave.
SAMUEL SHACKFORD (1752-1843)
Samuel Shackford , the third son of Samuel Shackford and Elizabeth Ring was born in 1752 in Dover, New Hampshire. He married Nancy (Anne) Walker on May 6, 1779. We are glad to find the obituary as do not have much information about this Samuel -- we believe we find him in the Strafford Census in 1830 (as the male age 70-79) and 1840 Census (as the male age 80-89). We do know he and Nancy Anne Walker had the two children listed below. We should be able to find his will which we will be sharing at a later date.
Samuel Shackford (1782-1832) - married Nancy Buzzell
Nancy Walker Shackford (1798-1868) married Benning Wentworth Jenness
