15924.54 Timothy 7 BIGELOW, son of Timothy 6 ( Timothy 5 , Isaac 4, Isaac 3, Samuel 2, John 1 ) and Sally (STREETER) BIGELOW, was born either 02 May 1811 or 12 May 1810 -(see below) headstone on grave has differing dates from family records - at (Herkimer?) Manchester, Ontario co, NY. His father died when Timothy was very young and his mother married secondly, Elisha Turner. Timothy sold out his interest in the family estate as soon as he was of age, and moved to Collins Centre, Erie, NY. ( There is a report of Timothy marrying Sabrina ___ ; b 1812; d 1834, buried in Sanders cemetery, East of Perrysburg, Cattaraugus co, NY) He married the daughter of his employer, Julia Ann Edwards, on 09 December 1834 in Manchester, Ontario co, NY. She was born in New York on 29 March 1817 (1819), the daughter of Truman and Eliza (Parkman) Edwards. Timothy was a farmer and hotel keeper in Collins Centre for many years. In the Spring of 1849, he went to Illinois and bought land on the banks of the Kishwaukee river. The family, with 6 children, appears on the census there in McHenry county. In the year of 1869, he erected a large cheese and butter factory that was known throughout the state as Bigelow's Factory. In 1878, he began to sell his acreage and the Bigelow Factory, but he kept 160 acres of land for himself where he had a large stock of fancy colts and horses. While on a journey to Wisconsin to visit his sister's children, he died. Fred Biglow, in History of the Bigelow Family, states Timothy died 13 April 1900 but his headstone reads: 19 March 1895. Julia died on 29 December 1888 at (Union?) Franklinville, Mc Henry co, IL. Both Timothy and Julia are buried at Franklinville, McHenry county, IL. (Claimed to be a descendant of a Huguenot and Shaking Quaker)

December 29 1888
age 72 Yrs, 7M buried January 1, 1889 Franklinville which is consistant with the family records.
The 1880 census of Seneca twp, McHenry County, Illinois dwelling 111, June 10, 1880 Timothy Bigelow age 69, Julia A. wife, age 73, which is consistant with the family records.
First wife is not stated in any record that I have found. Here are some interesting facts anyway.
Sanders Cemetery, east of Perrysburg village in Cattaraugus County, New York.
One Bigelow headstone. Sabrina Bigelow wife of T. Bigelow d. 1834 age 22.
Also buried in this cemetery are the parents of Julia Ann (Edwards) Bigelow and her brothers. The first daughter of Timothy and Julia Bigelow was named Sabrina. Thanks for all of your work on the web pages.
