Hannah 5 BIGELOW
. 12162 Hannah 5 BIGELOW, daughter
of Jonathan 4 (Jonathan
and Tabitha (COLEMAN) BIGELOW, was born 4 Aug 1738 in Hartford,
Hartford co, CT. She was married 2 Dec 1757 (Barbour's Families of Early
Hartford states 1759) to John BARNARD, son of John and Mary (CASE)
BARNARD. He was born 25 Dec 1732 Hartford. He was a Captain in the French-and-Indian
War, and during the Revolutionary War, was a Captain in the 3rd Regt, Connecticut
line. He was a charter member of the Society of Cincinnatus. He died 28
Dec 1813 in Connecticut. His wife Hannah died 12 Mar 1800, and he married
(2)11 Jan 1802 her sister Martha (BIGELOW) STANLEY. Barbour' gives eight
children, though some of his dates seem highly questionable; he also assigns
to the second wife children that are clearly Hannah's on account of the
birthdates. Therefore, with considerable skepticism, the following are
purportedly children of John and Hannah (BIGELOW) BARNARD, all born Hartford,
Hartford Co, CT [four entries considered unlikely have been omitted]:
12162.1 Theodorus, called Dorus, b 1758; d 18 Jan 1818 Hartford;
m Abigail DODD;
12162.2 James, d 2 Apr 1759, died in infancy.
12162.3 James, bapt 28 Dec 1760; d 19 May 1777, age 16.
