Brooklyn Standard Union Nov 25, 1863. BIGELOW. - At Hartford, Conn., on Saturday night last, of ossification of the heart, William BIGELOW, formerly of Brooklyn, in the 78th year of
his age. The older citizens of Brooklyn will observe this decease with strong and peculiar emotion. Mr. BIGELOW for many years occupied the premises where now stands the Atlantic
Bank, and touched every chord of sympathy by his social nature, cordial kindness and universal good will. To these genial qualities he added a high order of intelligence, and was active
in various institutions, chief of which was the Apprentices Library, which had a large share of his attention. He was of the class of persons who, once known, are never to be forgotten,
and should have a place in any gallery of Brooklyn portraits.
