Hannah 6 BIGELOW

 16228.1     Hannah 6  BIGELOW, dau of  Joel 5 ( Benjamin 4 , Jonathan 3 , Joshua 2, John 1), and Abigail (CALL) BIGELOW, was born 4 Sep 1776 at Springfield, Windsor county, VT. She married, on 16 Dcc 1801, Timothy Evarts, son of Gilbert and Rebecca (Chapin) Evarts. He was born Addison county, VT 2 May 1775. Family tradition says "they both attended the Academy of Middiebury, VT," and he afterwards taught school in that town, but subsequently became engaged in a general transportation business on Lakes Champlain and Ontario. He removed to Canada in the interest of his business, and settled at Hamilton, Ontario circa 1807.
     On the breaking out of the War of 1812, he refused to take the oath of allegiance to the Crown, and consequently was arrested and his property confiscated, which left him destitute with a family of nine children. He was released on his parole of honour, and at the close of the war, after suffering many deprivations, he and his family with other American expatriates, managed to reach Buffalo, NY, and spent the winter in barracks. In the spring following they moved up the lake to where the Huron River (MI) flows into the lake, and lived there several months.
     After many more hardships, with the assistance of friends, he settled on an 80 acre farm in Jefferson twp, Richland co, OH. He soon after was appointed to teach the first school in the locality. Both Timothy and Hannah were respected members of the community, and he died there 28 July 1846, she on 2 Mar 1849.

Just starting researching ancestors and see a Hannah Bigelow who married Timothy EVARTS (my paternal line) in 1801 or 1802 in Vermont. Couple weeks ago, I got on a link that gave an exhaustive Bigelow history and now can't find it.  Can you help?  (My father's middle name was Bigelow). Thank you for your assistance and I am enjoying your site.

I am looking for information on my great grandmother, Comfort Ann Evarts (born Nov 14, 1849), who is related to the Bigelow family.  She was married to James M. Reed from Ohio on Dec 2, 1874.  When we enter Evarts name, Bigelow
appears and we would just like more information on this.
Thank you!
