Note 2012: From: "Virginia Myers"  < >
I thought you might like to know what I have found about a Delight Bigelow.  Still not sure she is the Delight I am looking for but it is a potential fit. 
 The  records  found show that Uriah died about 1760.  This guardianship action was not taken until some years later and they were apparently teen agers who themselves asked for the action to appoint a guardian.  I also found an apparent record of their widowed mother - she had married a man named Joseph Kneeland and the two of them and two of her younger Bigelow children were "warned out" of Winchendon MA.  One of the children she had with J Kneeland was apparently "bound out" at the time of the warning action.  Seems like they were maybe considered vagrants and that might be why Roger and Delight wanted a legal separation from them.
    So someone named Uriah Bigelow had a daughter named Delight who was apparently the same age as a brother named Roger.  I have found stuff about a Uriah having a son named Roger in family trees on but I only use these as starting points but none of those trees mention a daughter named Delight.  Strange that she is so elusive. 

Rod: Documents provided by Virginia (that are now in Bigelow Society Library) state: "Judge John Chandler, nominates and appoints Ebenezer Bridger of Fitchburg, MA, Guardian of Roger and Delight (both fifteenin age) son and dau of Uriah Bigelow, late of Stow and county of Middlesex, MA dated 18  April 1769"
Also documents show a bond of 100 pounds apiece was posted by Isaac Gibson, surety letter of Obligation.
