Great Bigelow Family Story. I was led to it by Don Wrighter in his search for Wrighters Lake,Wayne/Susq. Co., Pa.
Hozea Tiffany and family and John Tiffany and family of Attleboro, Mass.; on their way to Nine Partners (Harford, Pa), in 1792, stopped in Pleasant Mt. Pa, over a Sunday, to visit the Sam Stantons . John was so pleased with the area, he immediately bought land and built a cabin, a barn and the first frame house in Pleasant Mt. All Tiffanys are carpenters. Hozea went on to Harford and settled on land he had bought and built on in 1790 and became my GGGGgrandfather.
James 5 Bigelow ( he was a blacksmith) , his wife and family, settled at Pleasant Mt.in 1808. at what is now Bigelow Lake. James 5 Bigelow had a daughter Sallie ( Sarah 6 ), John Tiffany had a son John, and the two married in 1808. A rather unreliable source, claiming descent from John and Sallie, says Sallie was 24 and John 25 when they married. I don't know. John and Sallie had six children and I am sure they are all noted in your Genealogy. I found John and Sallie but will save the rest for another day.
Many Tiffanys descending from and including Sgt John sr, (Rev. war) are buried in the Pleasant Mt. cemetery, but at this time I do not think there are any residents. The Bigelows, on the other hand , still reside and farm in the black muck soil, the result of enlarging Bigelow Lake, and I wouldn't be surprised to find at least one blacksmith living on the farm.
Pleasant Mt. is some 15-20 miles from my residence in Carbondale, PA. I look forward to spending time with your wonderful Bigelow Web Pages.
