     I found Joshua Tobey Bigelow son of Joshua Cushman he is burried in Norridgewock along with his two wives.
Joshuas headstone reads Joshua T Bigelow died March 16 1926
His first wife Nellie E died October 19 1888 age 30 yrs
His second wife Lizzie A (No other last name given) Died April 8 1912 aged 50 yrs
 
Also buried next to Charles Pishon Bigelow and his wife Maria is their daughter Lizzie and her husband Edwin.  I did not get the dates from the stones just their locations. Will follow up on that.
