15923.6 Timothy 6 Bigelow, son of Isaac 5 ( Isaac 4, Isaac 3, Samuel 2, John 1 ) and Mary (Chamberlain) Bigelow, was born 14 July 1771, presumably in Nova Scotia. The family removed to Vermont and New Hampshire at the outbreak of the Revolution. Timothy married on 05 November 1789 at Putney, VT, Polly Wilson. She was born 22 May 1772 in Vermont, her parents unknown. Timothy was brought up in the Congregational faith, but early in life was active in the Methodist meetings. At age 25 he was licensed as a Methodist preacher, but nine years later was converted to the Universalist faith, being much influenced by their leader Hosea Ballou. In 1810 he removed to Winchester, NH, remaining 4 years. In 1814 they migrated to Ohio, settling in 1819 at Palmyra, where he became a well-known Universalist preacher throughout the state. Timothy and Polly both contracted malaria and died a few weeks apart, she on 11 October 1823, Timothy on 05 November 1823.

I noticed when perusing your Bigelow Family History that the information dies off with
15923.61 Mary, called Polly, b 08 Nov 1790 Putney, VT; d 02 Jan 1886 Palmyra, Portage co, OH; m 24 May 1809 (VT) John Dix.
I descend from that line and would be happy to fill in some of the blanks if you haven't already done so. All of my information is in paper copy and will take a little to relay it.
