In 1971 I received a letter from Ralph DAVISON answering a HOOSIER ANCESTORS query on ROBEY:
"Wm. H. McCART was b.1801. He was the son of Henry McCART, pioneer settler in Richland and Ashland counties, OH,
near the Indian village of Greentown. (Henry was previously from Knox county OH; also KY, PA, VA.)
Wm. H. McCART 1st.m.Sarah Jane BIGELOW; they had four children. Sarah Jane died young. Wm. H. came back from WI to OH and 2nd.m. Patsy Ann ROBEY; they had eight children. I have found the graves of Wm. H. and Patsy Ann McCART in WI. (Ralph also said he had just published The Pioneer McCART Family.)"
I hope this will be beneficial to someone's BIGELOW research.
Bigelow Society notes says Sarah Jane m John McCart:
"She married her step brother, John McCart and they lived in Fairfield Co., OH."
