In 1842, Amaziah was 24 years old and Adeline was 27 but we don't know anything more about their wedding - where was the wedding held?, did anyone else from their families attend?, did any friends attend?
We believe Adeline was born December 1815 to Isaiah Litchfield and Silence Wheelwright of Cohasset, Massachusetts. After her husband's death, she had to ask the probate court to ensure that her husband's administrators, (her brother-in-law John Shackford and her husband's business partner, Nathaniel George) released her husband's assets to her in accordance with his will. She remained in Malden living in Kimball Block, 2 Tremont St, and 15 Tremont Street.
Adeline died on 27 April 1886 of heart disease.
