15923.48      Ittia7 Bigelow, son of Freedom6 (Isaac5, Isaac4, Isaac3, Samuel2, John1) and Susanna (Kathan) Bigelow, was born at Ballston Spa, Saratoga, NY circa 1810. When the War of 1812 ended, the family moved to central Ohio along with other of their relatives. They settled first at Madison county. There on 08 July 1830 Ittia married Mary Hyzer. We have no record of her birth date or parents, but she was from Kentucky (see below). Ittia is found in Madison county on the 1840 and 1850 censuses, but later in life is found in Paulding county. We do not have a death date for him, but he was living in 1880.

Comments: I have just started to reasearch my family's history. I am a direct decendant of John Biglo and Ann Warren on
my mother's side through Freedom Bigelow and Susanna Kathan. I am wondering if there is anyone else who traces their
Bigelow line through Freedom and Susanna Bigelow. I am also looking for information on Mary Hyzer who married their son,
Ittia Bigelow. She was born around 1812 and came to Madison County, Ohio from Kentucky.

15923.484      Rachel 8 Bigelow,  daughter of Ittia 7 Bigelow, etc and Mary (Hyzer) Bigelow was born in 1835 at Plain City, Franklin co, OH.  She married 22 October 1853 George Armentrout born 1833, son of Jacob and Fanny (Hemaker) Armentrout.  Rachel died at age 29, and George Armentrout, married again to "Laney" Tillman after he served in the Civil War and they had 6 more children.  Rachel and George had three small children when she died.  How did she die? A record, almost illegible, in Plain City (poss. Darby Cem.) shows a Rachel Armentrout (looked like born 1851 but almost illegible).

George Armentrout 1833-1922 married first 22 Oct 1853 Rachel(8) (15923.485 R36) Bigelow, daughter of Ittia(7) and Mary Hyzer Bigelow, who died 1862 (not 1864) leaving 3  small children in Franklin Co., Ohio.  He served in the Civil War and relatives cared for his 3 small children.  After Rachel died, George went into the Civil War, age 28, Co. F., 45 Ohio Inf. Aug 6, 1862.  He was wounded 27 May 1864 and mustered out June 12, 1865.  He is buried in the Preston Cemetery, Alger, Hardin Co., Ohio.  He then married a second time to Laney Tillman, sister of Jane Tillman Ayle (whose son John Ayle married Georges' daughter Dimmis by his first marriage.)  Laney and Jane also had a brother Henry Tillman.  By his first marriage, George and Rachel had Ittia 1854-1933 (married Sarah J.), Mary born 1857 (married Frank White), and Dimmis 1860-1888 (married John Allen Ayle).  By his second marriage, he and Laney Tillman had:  Albert 1869-1902 (married Molly Kempsill and had 3 children, Richard, Blanch and Jacob, This was her second marriage.  She first had a son by P. Kenton,  Albert, who was father of LaDonna Lawrence of Alger, Ohio and Molly married George Fuchs, (pronounced Fox), Clara, 1870-1931 (married 1893 James Cowan 1861-1917, 6 children) Robert C.

15923.4843     Dimmis Armentrout, born 1859, Plain City, Franklin co, OH.  She married John Ayle about 1876 and they lived in McGuffey. She died in 1888 at Kenton, Hardin co, OH and is buried in the Seig Cemetery, Kenton, OH.  My Aunt, Evidene Tracy, showed me where she is buried with two children who died young, Georgie and a daughter, but there are no stones.  Their graves were in the Sieg Cemetery, near the "pump," near a tree grandpa Ayle planted after she was buried there.  That was many years ago, in the 1950s, so I imagine the pump is gone and the tree has died.  She died at age 29, as did her mother, also leaving 3 children.
John Allen Ayle, son of Martin and Jane (Tillman) Ayle. Her sister was Laney Tillman, step mother of John Allen's wife, Dimmis Armentrout, daughter of George and Rachel (Bigelow) Armentrout, McGuffey, Ohio where John Allen Ayle moved from Kenton. He was born 11 July 1855 at Plain City, OH.  Dimmis, as had her mother, died at age 29 leaving 3 small children in 1888.  John Ayle married a second time to Sarah Timmons.  John and Dimmis also had two children that died very young, Georgie and Dolly, buried with their mother in Seig Cemetery, KIenton. John Ayle died 29 June 1939 in McGuffey at age 84.

Children of John and Dimmis (Armentrout) Ayle:

Elizabeth Ayle, b 06 Mar 1883 Kenton, Hardin co, OH; d 13 Dec 1968 Three Rivers, St. Joseph co, MI; m 1902 William Stanley Kelly;
15923.48533   Elizabeth 10 Ayle, daughter of Dimmis 9 (Armentrout), (Rachel (8) (Bigelow) Armentrout, Ittia (7) Bigelow, etc, and John Ayle, was born 06 March 1883 in Kenton, Hardin co, Ohio.  In 1901 she married William Stanley Kelly, born Lakeview, Logan co, OH on 30 December 1874, son of Daniel Henry and Sarah Elizabeth (Kennedy) Kelly.  Elizabeth died 13 December 1968 in Three Rivers, MI.  William (called Stanley) died 26 November 1939 in Ohio.  They are buried in Roundhead Cemetery near Stanley's father, Daniel Henry Kelly.
   Elizabeth was called "Libby".  When 5 years old she was hit by a double bladed ax when her father was chopping wood (story told by descendant) and was blind in one eye the rest of her life.  Another story said she had measles which caused her to be blind in one eye.  "Libby" was 93 when she died. After grandpa died, grandma's house was behind ours in Michigan.  One thing I remember about her was that she swept her yard with a broom almost every day, sweeping between every little wisp--weather permitting, and even sometimes when it sprinkled.
William Stanley Kelly, son of Daniel and Sarah Elizabeth (Kennedy) Kelly, always went by "Stanley" and in one instance, (Lex) to his (aunt) Cora per letter. He always called me "babe"--maybe because I was at the time the baby of the family--and he died before my younger sister was born.  He married Elizabeth Ayle in Kenton, Ohio in 1901, per marriage license from Hardin Co.  His mother was Sarah Elizabeth (Kennedy) Kelly.  She was daughter of Job and Elizabeth (Davis) Kennedy who were both born in Ireland (per tombstone near Lakeview and New Hampshire, OH)  Her brother was William Kennedy who had son Job ("young Job") whose family cared for Sarah Elizabeth (Kennedy) Kelly until she died in Auburn, Indiana and is buried there at Cedar Chapel Cem., [Wm.Tracy Jr.7/23/1999].  William "Stanley" died 24 Nov 1938, Dola, OH and is buried with his wife and father in Roundhead Cemetery, Hardin co., OH.  His wife, Elizabeth (Ayle) Kelly was born 6 Mar 1883, Alger, OH and  died 13 Dec 1968, Three Rivers, MI.  Both buried at Roundhead Cem., Roundhead, OH.  Note:  William Stanley Kelly's father, Daniel Henry, evidently had a brother William since it was told that "Stanley" was named for his uncle "Billy" and for Stanley Livingston.
