Children with Ann Bellingham
Mary Ann Udall
George was the oldest of the Udall brothers to stay
at home and help his mother after father John Udall passed away in
1801. His family lived at
home, and in 1819 he and Jesse took over the farm and its rent during
mother Catherine’s declining years (perhaps on account of her advancing
insanity). When George and
Ann Bellingham had children and married, he was by all appearances a
prosperous farmer and leading citizen of the community. By 1823, however, they were no
longer paying the lease, and had declined from “farmers” to “farm
laborers”. And by 1829 the
family fortunes were much different.
George’s brother Jesse had sent his family to the parish Union
House while he sought his fortune in
Things did not get better for George in the long run. Though several of his children lived to adulthood and had means (and one of them, Gaius, was prosperous), George lived alone in a Union House throughout his old age.
Describing the family’s descent from prosperous farming decades later, George’s great-nephew David King Udall said, “some of his sons drank the place up and then had to work for a living.” This points to both alcoholism and sloth, and a persistent refusal to own up to their responsibilities.

Note: I don't have another source for Ann's age. If this is her, she would have been around 25 when she had her first child with George and 38 when she had her last. I know of no other Ann Udall in the Parish of such an age.
