Adam Chester 7 BIGELOW

15336.52      Adam Chester 7 BIGELOW, son of Cornelius 6 ( Paul 5 , Cornelius 4, Samuel 3, Samuel 2, John1 and Persis (HARRIS) BIGELOW, was born in VT about 1795, moving to Chatham township, Argenteuil, Quebec about 1801 with his parents. He married on 21 January 1819 Laurene Smith. She was the daughter of James and Elizabeth (Mills) Smith and born in VT about 1801. About 1830, the family moved to Buckingham, Papineau county. During a serious family illness, Adam Chester was baptized, 15 May 1843 and on 14 September 1843 three of his children were also baptized. Church records state "relict of the late Adam Chester Bigelow" and thus we assume he had recently died, but no burial record has been found. His widow married (2)19 December 1845 Samuel Warwick and after her death, he remarried. Laurene died before 1879 and is allegedly buried in the old Presbyterian cemetery at Buckingham. We list his death as mid 1843.
