I was just going through the Cemetery book for the Peru Cemeteries.
In the Peasleeville Cem (abt 3 mi from where I live)
is the Rev. J. B. Wescott /1811-1879, and his wife Welthia Bigelow
(see almon7a.htm) 1818-1907.
Also there is Cinderilla Emery, wf of Anson Wescott, d 8 Nov 1873@63.
Cinderilla is part of my line. Is J. B. Anson's brother? Where
does Welthia fit in?
In God's Acre Cem. is Julia Bigelow, 1844-1899, wife of
Joseph B. Covell. Nettie J. Covell 18821882, and Gertude A,
1878-1892, their daughters.

Here's another item I've come across while going through
your site. It concerns several of the children of Artis BIGELOW
You have Sabrina L. married to Wesley BURT in 1861;
she died in 1873. You then have him marrying secondly her sister,
Adelia in 1874. It is, according to the 1880 Census, her half sister,
Adelaide (b.02 Dec 1850) who married him in 1874. The census lists
Wesley BURTT Self M 42
Adelaide BURTT Wife M 29
George BURTT Son S 13
Cora BURTT Dau S
Subrina BURTT Dau S 5
Ida BURTT Dau
Myrtie BURTT Dau S
This shows that his first two children, George and
Cora, from his first marriage, along with three children of the second

childbirth of my great aunt Adelia Taylor (Pangborn) who died without
issue in the mid 1930's and my grandfather John Wesley Taylor who died
