Comments:  Have been reseaching the history of our house which apparently belonged to and was built by Asa Bigelow, son of Otis Bigelow. He lived here with his Brother Amasa and his sister Betsy from about 1840-1868. Asa and his two siblings all died here. The house and property was then willed to his neice Betsy Bigelow Taylor of Colchester, CT. Can give more information to anyone interested in this piece of Bigelow Heritage.
