# 1424. Daniel 4, son of Daniel 3 ( Daniel 2, John 1) BIGELOW and Rebecca (EAMES) BIGELOW, was born Framingham, Middlesex co, MA 16 July 1732. He married on 20 March 1754 Martha PRATT. Martha, his wife, daughter of Daniel and Eliza (RICE) PRATT, was born Framingham 15 December 1728. They lived on the old homestead where his grandfather settled for many years. He served in Capt. Henry EAMES' co in 1757. It is thought that he accompanied his children in their move to Fitzwilliam, NH, for Daniel and Martha were admitted to the church there 31 March 1782. Daniel BIGELOW was taxed in Fitzwilliam from 1782 until and including 1799, after which we have no further record of him. His widow died in Keene, NH, 01 November 1820, aged 91 years, 10 months.

I wonder why Cyrus Kingsbury, son of Rebecca is not listed in Bigelow
records. He was born in Keene in 1799. He has many descendants.
