Daniel 5 BIGELOW
14242. Daniel 5 BIGELOW, son of
Daniel 4 (Daniel
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.
