This is Jared's new stone, inscribed: "JARID BIGELOW ; 1788-1842".
(A newer headstone placed over the old one, which was broken in many places and buried under this one.)

# 16314.13     Jared7, son of Ezra6, (Ezra5, David4, Lt. John3, Joshua2, John1) BIGELOW and Rachel (WHEELER) BIGELOW, was born at Manchester, Bennington,VT on 07 March 1788. About 1803, the family moved to Clinton county,NY There in 1806, Ezra was named in his father's will. In 1810 at Peru,Clinton,NY, Jared married Sarah BEAMAN, known as Salley, a Mr. Cochrane, Justice of the Peace, officiating. She was born 1786 and was living in 1870.see headstone picture and info below
Jared served as an army teamster in the War of 1812 and his widow tried to claim pension, but was rejected because teamsters were not considered part of the armed forces. Jared died 18 April 1842 at Schuyler Falls, Clinton,NY. Big. Soc. had no dates for Sally.
* Headstone for Jared found in Turner-Roberts Cemetery. This stone is laying down, face up, and looks like a recent copy of an older one. This new one has inscription:"Jarid Bigelow; 1788-1842." There is a second stone to the east, very close, laying face up:"J.IRAD Bigelow;died Apr 18, 1812; in 51 year" The date is most likely 1842 which would agree with Big. Soc. information. This second stone was found by the Historical Society, buried under the first stone and moved to it's present location.second headstone picture below.

The following is an estimate by the Bigelow Society and my additions "*" through research of the family of Jared and Sarah (BEAMAN) BIGELOW:

16314.131       a daughter, born cir 1812 (age 15-20 on 1830 census).

16314.131*     Tamson 8, b cir 1813?, Schuyler Falls,Clinton,NY;died 12 Sep 1874 Plattsburgh,Clinton,NY;m cir 1830 to Isaac T. AYER, who died 23 Mar 1889;they are buried next to "Sally Beman wife of Jerrey Bigelow" in the West Plattsburgh Union Cemetery,Morrisonville,NY;see headstone picture below. There is no mention of Tamson in Bigelow Society records as of this date.

16314.132       Amy 8 , born circa 1814 (age 10-15 on 1830 census);married (1)*Hiram FRENCH and possibly (2) Stephen CALKINS; was living in 1870; *Amy born circa 1812, died 22 Aug 1896 Plattsburgh,Clinton,NY; *(headstone information found in West Plattsburgh Union Cemetery,Morrisonville,NY, buried next to Stephen CALKINS, who died in Civil War?)see link *Headstone of child "Jared;son of;Hiram & Amy FRENCH;died June 27,1843;age 4 yrs; 6 mo". see link

16314.13?      *Ezra, 1880 Census Chateaugay lists Uncle Ezra 64 yrs old staying with Harmon (son of Hiram(8));Ezra b. ca 1816 would fit, have to be born Schuyler Falls?; Ezra b. 1818,,NY. was listed in the 1850 Census as a farmer in town of Burke,Franklin Co.,NY.(Bigelow Family Genealogy Vol II, page 535)with children: Laura b.1840,Eli b.1842, Polly b.1844, and William b.1847; There was Ezra with Hiram in Chat.in 1840 Census and in Burke 1850 Census and then later age 64 with Harmon 1880. which would be birth ca 1816. Could use some help on this!!
