Miriam 5 BIGELOW

16133.    Miriam 5 BIGELOW daughter of Nathaniel 4, Joshua 3 ( Joshua 2, Johnl) and Hannah (ROBINSON) BIGELOW, was born 21 Mar 1738 at Weston, Middlesex county, MA. She married on 10 Feb 1757 Nathaniel Woolson, son of Joseph and Elizabeth (Upham) Woolson. He was born 17 Feb 1731 at Weston.
      Between Howe's Bigelow genealogy and Barry's History of Framingham, considerable misinformation has been printed. Howe states that Miriam was the mother of triplets, when in fact there were no multiple births, but three children were all the same day. Barry confuses the generations, and states that the family moved to Hopkinton. Another source says Nathaniel in later life moved to his son Isaac's in Waterbury, VT and died there 27 Mar 1819.

Children of Nathaniel and Miriam (Bigelow) Woolson were:

16133.1         Isaac, b 11 Nov 1757 Weston [bapt Nov 1763 Weston]; d 10 Nov 1820 Waterbury, VT; m Mercy Nelson.
