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.
I took a picture of a gravestone in the Port Douglas Road Cemetery (just outside of Keeseville, NY) with the following inscriptions:
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
