Mr. Bigelow, my name is Dick Garfield, and I ran across your GREAT site yesterday while searching under
Watertown, MA. I was born and raised in the southwestern corner of New York State, with PA on both the south and west of us, in a 6 mile sq. county called French Creek. As you know that when the early settlers started moving west they traveled in groups for protection. In this cornor of the state there is at least 15 names of families that also appear in the early settlers of Watertown. Garfield, Whitney, Gallup and etc. In the OLD FRENCH CREEK Cemetery, where my GrGrGrandfather is buried there is also a Mary Bigelow who married a Merry. The front side of the marker has her listed as his wife, and on the back it shows her maiden name. I have taken and attached pictures of both the front and back of her stone plus the stone of
my GrGrGrandfsther George Garfield and his wife Ann.
Also, in looking over the Garfield's listed in your surnames I came across one that I didn't have, Susanna Hager,(gdau of Grace Bigelow) wife of Joseph Garfield, married 1787.`Would this be the Joseph, b.Sep 19, 1758, son of Samuel Garfield who had two wives, Hannah Garfield & Abigail Pierce?
Also in the same cemetery there is buried two Revolutionary War soldiers. In the next e-mail I will forward their stone's pictures, as I can only send 3 in one e-mail.
Any help you can give me on the above Joseph will be greatly appreciated. Thanks ever so much Dick Garfield.
