The "Official History of Guilford Vt" says that William Bigelow Jr. married Rebecca Barney, b Oct 2 1751 d Feb 3 1781. I note that William Bigelow b 1751 Feb 20, son of Jotham and Mary Richardson Bigelow, married Damaris Hapgood in 1782 and had 10 children. Even though he's not William Jr. did he possible marry Rebecca first and if so did they have any children?  I'm researching the Barneys in Guilford.
Thanks for your prompt response. The Bigelow web site is a wonderful job. If  the Temples had known that Persis Bigelow who married John Temple was a Beaman it would have saved us a dreadful trip to the Worcester Court House! Her parents were Ezra and Persis Keyes Beaman, by the way, but I didn't write down when and where Persis was born though it was in Worcester County--easy enough to find should anyone care.  The other Persis Bigelow, who married William Packer, probably died in  Preston, Chenango Co NY where her last children were born, but I've not tracked down the date yet--I found her children on the Ancestral File. Thanks again and I hope someone responds to my query.  Helga
