ANGELINE SHACKFORD AND WILLARD BAINBRIDGE PRESTON
Angeline Shackford was born on July 19, 1820 in Vermont. We believe but do not have source information that she is the daughter of Samuel Shackford and Susanna Hobbs.
Angeline was 19 when she married Willard Bainbridge Preston in Montpelier, Vermont.

William and Angeline were in Indianapolis in 1844-1847 where their first two children were born and then settled in Columbus, Ohio by 1849 where William worked as a merchant and settled in working as a farmer.
We find William in the 1860 census in Columbus with a personal estate of $200 living on a farm with his wife Angeline, his son Henry, and daughters Ada C, Francesco I, Ida C, and Rosenna. The same dwelling houses Adaline S Vincent who we believe is Angeline's sister who has two children Charles P Vincent and Vincent. Also L P Preston, age 43 and his family wife Laura, and son Fred are living with William and Angeline. We believe he is William's brother.
William who was born in Montpelier, Vermont died November 8, 1862 at the young age of 42 leaving Angeline with four children under the age of 18 He was buried at the Greenlawn Cemetery in Columbus. In 1870 we find Angeline living with her son Henry Samuel Preston in Nelsonville, Ohio listed as an invalid. Her other children are living with her daughter Adaline C Preston Heyl and her husband William D Heyl. In 1880 she is living with William Heyl and her daughter Ada. Angeline died November 1883 in Columbus, Ohio and was buried near her husband in the Greenlawn Cemetery in Columbus.
