Daniel 5 BIGELOW

14242.    Daniel 5 BIGELOW, son of Daniel 4 (Daniel 3,Daniel2, John1) and Martha (PRATT) BIGELOW , was born 14 Jun 1758 Framingham, Middlesex county, MA. He served in the Revolutionary War, and is probably the Daniel Bigelow of Framingham listed in Mass. Soldiers & Sailors of the Revolution, vol.2. He was married March 1783 in Framingham to Elizabeth GALLOT, daughter of Peter (jr) and Lydia (PRATT) GALLOTT. She was born 24 Jun 1762 in Framingham.
    Daniel was a landowner in Fitzwilliam, NH in 1788, but their five oldest children were baptised in Framingham between 1784 and 1794. Later they moved to Keene, NH, where he appears on census. About 1811 Daniel left his family and returned to MA. He died 24 Oct 1823 at Woburn. His widow applied for a military pension, bringing in proof of marriage, and a page from the family Bible, showing births of six children. As late as 1855 Elizabeth was living in Charleston, Orleans county, VT.
