# 16252. Enoch 5 son of
James 4 (Jonathan
3, Joshua 2, John1) and Sarah ( __ ) BIGELOW
, was born 2 Oct 1746 at Worcester, Worcester county, MA. He lived at Charlton,
MA, where he married, on 28 Aug 1770, Bette Clemons. He served in the Revolutionary
War, and was discharged 17 Dec 1780. Enoch does not appear on the census
of 1790, but his widow appears on this and succeeding censuses as head-of-family
until her death, which occurred 11 Sep 1823. In 1790 she had one male in
the household. Therefore we presume Enoch's death between 1780 and 1790,
and that they had but the one son.
1790 census: MA-Worcester-Charlton-Betty Bigelow: 1-0-1-0-0.
