Alice Darracott NASON

342 Marlborough Street 2

352 Marlborough Street, Boston, Massachusetts

Alice is my sixth cousin five times removed; related through John and Mary (GOOCH) LOWELL.  Alice was enumerated in the 1870 census in Montclair, Essex, New Jersey with her parents.[1]  She was enumerated in 1880 census in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts living at 53 Worcester Street, with her husband and children.[2]  She was enumerated in 1900 and 1910 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts living at 342 Marlborough Street with her husband and children.[3]  The home on Marlborough is still standing and has been divided into condos.  The history of the home and the others nearby are available at Back Bay Houses.  Alice’s husband was a noted physician and professor at Harvard College, teaching about diseases of children.[4]  He was very forward thinking when it came to the whole child, not just the current issue. His father (Dr. Charles E. BUCKINGHAM) was also a noted physician.

Possible child

  1. Alice BUCKINGHAM born 27 July 1879 in Montclair, Essex, New Jersey.[21] If she was their daughter it would mean that she and Margaret were twins born near midnight.  There is no mention of her after the birth record.  Her mother never said in the 1900 and 1910 census that she had a third child, and there is no mention of her in either of the parents’ obituaries.

History of Wells and Kennebunk… excerpt about Thomas and son Abner Wormwood[8]

“on the Mousam below was the Larrabee village, consisting on one side of Larrabee’s, Littlefield’s, and Look’s houses, the latter of which was occupied by John Butland, Look having moved to Saco.  Below was the house of Thomas Wormwood, and forty rods further down, on the edge of the highland, that of John Freeze.  Above , near the river, opposite the gravel bed, the house of Samuel Emons.  On the western side of the river was the house of Thomas Wormword, jr., where the late Abner Wormwood lived, and above, at the foot of the pasture of the late Geo. W. Wallingford, Esq., was the house of Edward Evans, the cellar of which is still to be seen.  The houses of John Look and Thomas Wormwood were garrisoned, each of them protected by a wall, twelve fee high, made of large timber, extending to the eaves of the house, and sufficiently far from it to leave an intervening space wide enough for all the out-door work.  Below, on the Great Hill, was the house built by Samuel Sawyer, since occupied by John Burks.  At the eastward of the rive, a little below the Wentworth house, on the opposite side of the road, was the house of John Webber, and beyond, where the Smith house now stands, was a small house of Richard Boothby.

Abijah WORMWOOD: History or York County

War of the Revolution

During the Revolutionary war which followed [Indian Wars], Wells contributed largely to the army.  At times it is believed, at least one-third of the able-bodied men were in the service; no other town furnished great number of officers. …

Sometimes the people were driven to the utmost extremities to proved for enlistments, the quotas required drawing largely on the population.  The bounties demanded exhausted their pecuniary ability, so that some were obliged to take the feathers from their beds, send them to Boston and sell them, to meet their proportion of these public burdens. …

The following persons belonging to Wells enlisted in the company of Capt. Jesse Dorman, of Arundel: Ezekiel Wakefield, sergeant; John Fisk, John Hubbard, James Smith, Abijah Wormwood, Daniel Meader, Moses Drown, Edmund Littlefield, Moses Blaisdell.

… This service was one of great hardship and expose.  They marched to New York; thence to Albany, Lake Champlain, St. John’s Montreal; thence up the Cedars sixty miles; thence back to St. John’s, where most of them had the smallpox; thence to Ticonderoga and Albany, Newton and Trenton, where they were discharged.

In the War of 1812 few or non enlisted, the feeling of nearly all the people being opposition to it.[11]

 

Abijah WORMWOOD History of Kennebunk

Capt. Jesse Dorman of Arundel, commanded a company in Col. Scamman’s regiment at Cambridge in 1776.  Ezekiel Wakefield, sergeant, John Hubbard and Abijah Wormwood, privates, were among those who enlisted with him and it is believed were residents in the Second Parish.  Bradbury says of Dorman: “He was not without perils in war or in peace.  In 1793 a violent tornado unroofed his house, and he was with hs bed and bedding was blown several rods from it.  Three of his sons were in the army.  He was a liutenant in the old French war and wounded in the battle Lake George in 1758.”

 

Abijah WORMWOOD Excerpt from a letter written:[12]

“And Ah friend, you little realize the fortitude of ye yeomanry of this and other families of our town in those, and the later time when they sought to establish independence from the King–for did not Abijah Wormwood write to his friends here at home in 1776 from Mt. Independence, Ticonderoga, that he had suffered everything but death in the service– from want of provisions. He had also experienced defeat, and had been captured by the savages, but yet he blessed God that his life was spared when many of his soldier comrades had fallen about him.”
