Samuel ( ), Bigelow, son of _____________ Bigelow and Mary (Lyman) Bigelow, was born
     In a letter from Richard Hale Zimmerman, 507 Leighton Ave., Silver Spring, Maryland 20901-4825, dated 20 Apr 2004:
"Samuel Bigelow was born in Connecticut, possibly Hartford, at some point  between 1775 and 1800.  He is mentioned in G. B. Howe's work, "Genealogy of the Bigelow Family of America" in which the information was supplied by his grandson, George  
In this account, Samuel was supposed to have been born in 1776, his father died soon after and his mother, Mary Lyman Bigelow, then married a man named Conn.  Dick Zimmerman was unable to confirm any of this in his 13 March 2004 letter.  U. S. Census records for 1810 through 1840 recorded only a range of years for those enumerated and from these one can deduce a birth date for Samuel anytime between 1775 and 1800.  Census records for 1850 (age 65) and 1860 (age 75) indicate a birth date in the latter half of 1784 or the first half of 1785.  His tombstone seen in July 2003 indicates that he died 23 December 1863 at age 81, indicating a birth date in 1782.
   "...Census records show that he lived in Salisbury, Litchfield County, Connecticut in 1810, 1820, 1830 after which he is recorded in Streetsboro Township, Portage County, Ohio.  Pat Bigelow indicated that he moved to Streetsboro in 1833 ("Forge:  The Bigelow Society Quarterly" 17(2):27,30;1988)  In Salisbury, he married Phebe Minard (born 20 October 1793 in Salisbury) about 1809 "Forge, same ref".  All eight of their children were born there and the seventh, Hiram L., died when about a year old and is buried at Town Hill Cemetery, Salisbury.
   "...Portage County in northeastern Ohio is part of the Western Reserve of Connecticut, also called New Connecticut, and this entire region had many early settlers from Connecticut ("Harlan Hatcher, The Western Reserve; The Story of New Connecticut in Ohio, Bobbs-Merrill 1949).  The first settlers arrived in Streetsboro in 1822, although the Township itself did not become independent of the adjoining townships until 1827.
   "Phebe Minard Bigelow died 18 July 1849 at the age of 56 years, 6 months (source: tombstone, Streetsboro Cemetery, Streetsboro Twp., Portage Co., Ohio).  In 1850, Samuel was recorded on the U.S. Census with the family of his daughter and son-in-law, Mary and Robert Smith.  He married 4 November 1850 Elizabeth R. Bow (born about 1798), who apparently survived him.  He died 23 December 1863 and was buried in Streetsboro (source: U.S. Census 1810, 1820, 1830, 1840, 1850, 1860; Early Marriage Bonds of Ohio - Portage Co.; Forge: The Bigelow Society Quarterly, 17(2):27,30;1988; family group sheet from Patricia Bigelow; tombstone, Streetsboro Cemetery, Streetsboro Twp., Portage Co., Ohio)."
