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.

Alice Darracott NASON was born 16 August 1851 in Woburn, Middlesex, Massachusetts.[5]  She was the daughter of Joseph and Sarah Clark (DARRACOTT) NASON.  She died of cancer of the thigh bone on 16 July 1919 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[6]  She is interred at Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts.[7]  Alice married Dr. Edward Marshall BUCKINGHAM 14 December 1876 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts by Reverend Henry W. BELLOWS.[8]  Edward was born 9 August 1848 on Beach Street in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[9]  He was the son of Charles E. and Mary Elizabeth (MARSHALL) BUCKINGHAM.  He died of angina pectoris on 23 December 1916 at 342 Marlborough Street, Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[10]  He is interred at Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts.[11]

Alice and Edward had the following children:

  1. Edith Nason BUCKINGHAM born 28 September 1877 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[12] She died 1954 in Sudbury, Middlesex, Massachusetts, at probably Featherland Farm.[13]  She was a science teacher at Concord High School.
  2. Margaret BUCKINGHAM born 26 July 1879 in Montclair, Essex, New Jersey.[14] She died 20 July 1964.  She is interred at Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts.[15]  Margaret married Addison GULICK 29 March 1915 in Massachusetts.[16] Addison was born 2 April 1882 in Osaka, Osaka, Japan.[17]  He was the son of John T. and Frances A. (STEVENS) GULICK.  He died September 1969 in Wilmore, Jessamine, Kentucky.[18]  He is interred at Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts.[19]  He was a professor at Missouri University in Columbia, Boone, Missouri.[20]  They had 2 daughters.

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.
