1592D     Addi 5 BIGELOW,  son of Isaac 4 ( Isaac 3, Samuel 2, John 1), and Abigail (SKINNER) BIGELOW, was born in Colchester, New London county, CT, 18 October 1757. In 1761 the family removed to Nova Scotia, but in 1777 returned to NH and VT. It is supposed that Addi is the same who married (1) 21 October 1779 at Enfield, CT, Mary Nooney. (see note below) Nothing further is known of this marriage or the wife, but Addi next appears soon after 1790 at Barre, VT. His father allegedly died in 1792 while visiting Addi. He was married (2) 29 July 1804 at Barre to Selinda Ingalls, her first husband. They lived in Barre until after the War of 1812, in which Addi is supposed to have taken part (but no proof found). About 1815 they removed with other relatives to Ohio, and he settled in Franklin county. He apparently died before 1817. His widow Selinda married (2) 27 February 1817 James White.

Descendant note: I believe I have located a  daughter of Addi Bigelow (son of Isaac Bigelow and Abigail Skinner)and his first wife,Mary Nooney, about whose marriage little is known. Abigail Bigelow was born about 1780 in Montpelier, Vermont. She married Nathan Sisson II ( son of Nathan Sisson and Hannah Burdock) in Barre, Vt on April 24, 1803 (Addi Bigelow married his second wife in Barre, Vt. in 1804) Abigail Bigelow Sisson died in Enfield Ct. , the same place where Addi and Mary Nooney were married. She named her second son, my ggg grandfather, Addi Bigelow Sisson(b. 6-16-1805 in Wilbraham, Mass.) She and Nathan had 12 children.( Nathan Sisson II Died in Wilbraham, Mass and the widow moved to Enfield ,Ct.)
Circumstances , dates and locations seem to point to this Abigail Bigelow Sisson as being the daughter of Addi Bigelow and Mary Nooney. Do you have any other information on this marriage?
