My husband's mother was a Bigelow - Florence - her grandfather was George, son of Daniel W. 7, son of Joseph
(6), son of Nathan (5). By the way, Joseph is buried in Oak Grove Cem, in Tomah, WI along with about 30 other Bigelow's.
His tombstone says he died 5-14-1859. If you want to e-mail me I can tell you who else is buried there along with most of there dates. I also have found another Bigelow around Whitewater, WI - a Daniel Bigelow who died 8-27-1895 and O.A.
Bigelow who died 2-27-1891. If interested - let me know. Rebecca Thompson

For the last year and a half Forge has been presenting the
sixth-generation of a large group of Bigelows whom we term the Crown
Point(NY) group, because their father Nathan Bigelow was an early
settler in Essex county, NY. This issue we present one of the
youngest son Joseph Bigelow; in April we will conclude the
series in a longer article on the lesser-known sons and the daughters.
Joseph 6 BIGELOW, son of Nathan 5 (John 4 ,Joshua 3 , Joshua 2, John 1), and Elizabeth (OAKES) BIGELOW, was born 15 February 1787 at Clarendon, VT. When he was a child, the family moved to Essex county, New York, settling near Crown Point. Joseph became a shoemaker, and in later life a farmer. About 1810 he married Catherine Chilcott, who
was born 16 May 1794 perhaps in Vermont, though other sources say the Chilcotts were from New Jersey. They lived at Crown Point, then at Westport, and had a family of fourteen children, several of whom died young. Their births are recorded with accuracy in the Bigelow genealogy.
On the 1850 census Catherine, presumably because of failing health, was living at Westport with son Amos, while Joseph (age 65) and the youngest children were in the home of son Oscar. Catherine died on 19 November 1856 and is buried at Stephenson cemetery, Westport. About the same year several of the surviving children migrated to Monroe county, Wisconsin, taking up land near the village of Tomah, where descendants live to this day. Joseph also moved to Wisconsin, and while there is no official death record or headstone noting the date, family tradition says he died in the spring of 1859.

i Rosetta D., born 11 Sept 1811; died 25 Feb 1812.

I have had a wonderful time reading about my family, from Rosetta
Bigelow on back. She married Alonzo Chapman and two generations
grandmother came along. Wonderful reading!
One question re Nathan 16164. On the John 1616 page it says he died in1822, and on his page is says 1816.

I am the Great-great-granddaughter of Alonzo Chapman and Rosette or Rosetta Bigelow. They had two sons, Amos Chapman and Hiram Agustus, who married Rachel Ann Deal or Dale. I can find nothing about her parents except a possibility her parents were "Dale" and "Paugh", but I remember my Grandmother saying her name was Rachel Dale and she died when my Grandmother, Rachel Irene Grace Chapman (b4/8/1888, d 4/2/1970) was a little girl. The birthdate I have for her, Rachel Ann Dale (or Deal), copied from the family Bible, was 3/18/1848.
Alonzo's obituary (I have a copy) says he was born 12/11,1807 in Crown Point, Essex County, NY. He died 8/20/1893 in Sherman, Dunn County, WI, and is buried in the Sherman cemetery. The obit also says he lived for a long time in Tomah, WI.
I have the dates of all of Hiram Agustus's and Rachel Dale' children and some of their deaths and spouses, and of course my mother and her brother, and only the name, approximate birth date and death date of her half-brother. (My Grandmother was married twice.) If you would like that information, I would be happy to send it to you.
I have so enjoyed your pages! It was a thrill to find them and confirm what my Grandmother had said while I was growing up, that we are Bigelows. Funny, tho' she thought Bigelow was Scottish!
One web site says Alonzo Chapman may have been born in Scotland (with a ? after it. That may be where she got the Scottish. Susan Sandegren Rainville

I have found a lot of info on the Chapman family of Wisconsin (my Grandmother's family), and combined it with the info from your Bigelow pages from Rosette Bigelow and Calvin Alonzo Chapman. You may not recall, but I am a great-great-granddaughter of Alonzo and Rosette.
Alonzo's name was listed as Calvin Alonzo on his son's (Hiram Agustus Chapman)marriage license application when he (Hiram) married his third wife, after the deaths of my great-grandmother and Hiram's second wife.
Interestingly, there is a Calvin Chapman in the Crown Point 1810 census, but my Calvin Alonzo would only have been three years old. Might be his father, though.

1861 and was involved in Sherman's Campaign, seeing action at the Battle of
Peachtree Creek (site of which was less than a 1/2 mile from where I now
write this). He was mustered out in Marietta a few months later (a few
miles North of Atlanta) and therefore did not participate in Sherman's
infamous March to the Sea. (I just knew I wasn't the first of my direct
family to see Atlanta!)
