Loren A. Buffum

Birth: May 1843, Douglas, Worcester Co, MA

Death: 23 Jan 1925, Douglas, Worcester Co, MA

Burial: Evergreen Cemetery, Douglas, Worcester Co, MA

Father: Benjamin Buffum
Mother: Sophia Wheelock

Spouse: Ellen Maria Shove
Marriage: 26 Oct 1864, Cumberland, Providence Co, RI

  1. Imogene Alice Buffum, born 17 May 1865, Uxbridge, Worcester Co, MA
  2. Walter Merrick Buffum, born 4 Feb 1877, Douglas, Worcester Co, MA
  3. Elsie May Buffum, born 15 May 1878, Douglas, Worcester Co, MA

Notes:

His birth date of May 1843 overlaps that of Julias Wheelock, who was born on 3 May 1843 in Douglas, mother listed as Sophia Wheelock "single woman". No further record of Julias has been found. Either Loren and Julias are the same person, or they are twins.

In 1850, he was living in the household of his parents and brother Phyletus in Douglas, listed as Loren Wheelock.

In 1855 he was again in Douglas, living in the household of Benjamin Buffum, and his wife Sophia. He is listed as Lorin Buffum.

In 1860 he was living in Uxbridge with Stephen Paine (relation unknown), listed as Loring Buffum.

His 1864 marriage record to Ellen Maria Shove identifies his birth place as Douglas, his age as 21, and his parents as Benjamin and Sophia Buffum.

His 1925 Douglas death record gives his age at death as 81 years, 8 months, 21 days, implying a birth date of 2 May 1843. The death record identifies his parents as Sophia Wheelock and Benjamin Buffum. The informant was his son, Walter M. Buffum. [Src: Massachusetts, "Deaths, 1925, Danvers to Dracut," Vol. 18, p. 445; Vital Records, Massachusetts State Archives, Boston.]

His father is listed here as Benjamin Buffum. However, this relationship is uncertain, given his out-of-wedlock birth, and the potential unreliability of his marriage and death records.

Death: 3 Jul 1867, Douglas, Worcester Co, MA

Father: Benjamin Buffum
Mother: Sophia Wheelock

Spouse: Ellen Humes
Marriage: 24 Aug 1863

Notes:

In 1850 he was living with his parents in Douglas, listed as Philetus Wheelock, age 9. Also in the household: Benjamin Buffum, 62, Mrs (or Sophia?) Buffum, 56, and Loren Wheelock, 7.

Phyletus was a private in the 51st Regiment, Massachusetts Infantry during the Civil War. He also served in the 24th Infantry. In June 1867 he was discharged with a certificate of disability while on duty in Natchez, Mississippi. He apparently had diabetes, and due to complications, was unable to perform his military duties. He died 3 July 1867 in Douglas. His mother, Sophia Buffum, applied for and received a pension based on his service, 26 Mar 1868. [Src: "Case Files of Approved Pension Applications of Widows and Other Dependents of Civil War Veterans, ca. 1861 - ca. 1910," database with images (https://www.Fold3.com : accessed 3 Feb 2019), Philetus Buffum, case WC120197.]

His father is listed here as Benjamin Buffum. However, this relationship is uncertain, given his out-of-wedlock birth, and the potential unreliability of his marriage record.

Also in San Francisco at the same time are his cousins, John Dexter Wheelock, and Samuel Wheelock. (Src: California, Voter Registers, 1866-1898; online at www.Ancestry.com, June 2013.)
