I am researching Deidamia Dickerson, who married Joseph Bigelow. They are both buried in the Port Douglas Cemetery, just outside of  Keeseville, NY.
Deidamia b. 1834, d. 1916.
Joseph b. 1828 d. 1912.
I believe Joseph's father was Erastus Bigelow.
If you have any information about this family, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.
I'm sure that is the same Joseph Bigelow, but I have a different date of death for him. We visited the area last fall, and I found their graves at Port Douglas Cemetery. According to the headstone, Joseph died May 3, 1912. On the same headstone is the info for Erastus- b. Nov. 5, 1800  d. Feb 24, 1862.
Do you have any further info about the children of Joseph and Deidamia? I'm desperately searching for living relatives who may have info about the Dickerson line.

  Joseph Bigelow b. 9/13/1828, d. 5/3/1912
  Deidamia Dickerson (his wife) b. 8/21/1834, d. 3/27/1916

  Erastus Bigelow b. 11/5/1800, d. 2/21/1862
  Lavina Hann (Rann)(his wife) b. 3/24/1793, d. 12/23/1866

Hi Rod-
Here is my email address. Just quickly, the 1st generation American Bigelows in my family are John Bigelow (married
Mary Warren) in 1642 Watertown, MA.
7th generation Erastus Bigelow, son of Ephraim and Polly Curtis Bigelow was b. Nov. 1800 and married Lavina Rann of
Poultney, Vt. They lived in Chesterville, NY. Their daughter Jane Bigolow (b. March 14, 1827) married Luther
Whitney, Feb. 8th, 1846.
Luther Whitney and Jane Bigelow were my great-great grandparents.
Nice to talk with you. Look forward to discovering more about the Bigelows.
Barbara Stewart

In memory of
Charles son of
E & L Bigelow
who died June
27, 1831
