I believe I am missing a generation in my lineage.
I have Charles Decatur Bigelow, b. 4 Dec. 1850, m. Florence A. Irons, d. 14 Apr. 1926 - listed as the son of:
Charles Chandler Bigelow, b. 18 Dec. 1807, m. Roxanna Sampson 20 Feb. 1829, d. 1 July 1890.
Those dates seem pretty improbable to me, and am thinking that there may be another generation between the two Charles.
Does anyone have any further information on these two, or verification of their connection?
It is related of John GOODEMOTE that, in conversation with Nathan SAUNDERS concerning the education and well-being of the children, he said, “Mr. SAUNDERS, ve must puilt school-house for de Childers! You oppinate me for drustee. I oppinate you! Den ve puilt de school-house and have de monies!"
Peter SAMPSON was a native of Massachusetts, emigrated to the north side of Cattaraugus Creek, with his wife and a large family of grown-up sons and daughters. Sanford J. SAMPSON had located land on lot 29, township 5, range 6, in 1822. In that year, Peter, his father, traded farms with John GOODEMOTE, who lived across the creek on lot 60, and came over on this side, and Gamaliel settled near him. Peter was elected commissioner of highways in 1824, supervisor in 1825, again in 1832-33, and afterwards justice of the peace. He early carried the mail from Buffalo to Olean, first on foot then on horseback, and finally by stage, and continued this position as mail-carrier and expressman until his death, which occurred Dec. 8, 1836, aged sixty years, and was caused by an accident in descending a hill near the Cattaraugus breakers. His daughters married Wm. SHULTIS, Royal McLEAN, Charles C. BIGELOW, and Truman BEASLEY.
