1979; In Bigelow Society Library
Nathan Jeffords, son of Moses married Rebecca Sherwood, where? Their 5th child was born 02 September 1791 Richfield Springs, Otsego County. Said to be "1st white child born there." Daughter Lydia born 19 October 1782, where? Married Samuel Bigelow and removed to Hartford (East Avon) February 1801. Who were their children?
Nathan Jeffords was born 03 Aug 1755/57; died 18 Aug 1816 Rush, NY; Rebecca Sherwood was born 21 April 1762; died 03 March 1801; they were married 01 March 1781;"
More from Ada Keith:
"I found Samuel in E. Avon, NY, and then he came to Mich. D. Spencer? and Grand Rapids. Found them in Wayne co, and I think Wastenaw. Lydia is buried in Rose cemetery, Wayne co, MI; d 15 Dec 1843; 61 yrs 1 mo. 26 dys; b 19 Oct 1782. So I am sure she was Nathan Jeffords sr's dau. I found them 1st in Otsego co, Richfield Springs, NY. She was married then. They had a child then. Went to E. Avon in 1801, then to Ontario Co, NY. She had a dau Lydia, who married a William Chaddock in Wayne co, MI; Lydia was Ada's g g grandmother's oldest sister??"

Hello "cousin"!
Have recently discovered the Bigelow Society on line.  I am a descendant of Dimmie Bigelow Holmes Parks through her 1st husband Palmer Holmes.  I borrowed both vols. of the Bigelow family put together by the assoc. and her family seems to stop with her parents Samuel and Lydia Jeffords Holmes??.  I am in touch with a descendant of Dimmie's dau from her second husband, Martha Parks.  I would like to make contact with other descendants of Dimmie. Would like to hear from you.

Adeline and Alfred would be my Dimmie's niece and nephew. I am pretty sure Dimmie must have gone to MI with some of her Bigelow relatives after her first husband, Palmer Holmes, died in Seneca Co., OH in 1841. She and second husband, Davis Parks,are in the 1880 census of Clinton Co., MI. Both died in MI.  Their one dau, Martha Parks, was b. in MI.  So I think Dimmie and Davis probably married in MI but I have not found that information yet. Are Jane and Allen Fisher in MI?
