article in "Forge" Apr 2000, Vol.29, No.2, p.28 from Janis Pahnke of Chicago who discovered the following deed in Williams co., Ohio Deed Book,Vol.29, pages 364-5. "This is almost certainly Samuel Smith Bigelow/Biglow (1555E.45)[actually 1555E.54 on page 258 of Vol.I, "The Bigelow Family Genealogy"..genealogist 2000];
Samuel Smith 7 Bigelow was born February 23, 1835 in Ticonderoga, Essex, NY, and died 1908 in Bryon Williams, OH. He married ROBY M. CHAPMAN August 16, 1855 in Milo, OH, daughter of GEORGE CHAPMAN and NARCISSA HOPKINS. She was born February 6, 1836 in Quebec Province. There is a dispute about Roby's birthplace. Howe's genealogy says she was born in New York, but descendents say she was born in Quebec Province, on February 6, 1836. She is alleged to belong to the Chapman family of "Johnny Appleseed" fame and most certainly descends from the Chapmans of CT. As a small child Samuel moved to Farmer, Defiance, Ohio. Samuel moved to Aspen, CO in the heyday of the mineral boom and was living there as a miner, in the 1880's. Elizabeth Beglinger Von Suskil, told me that Great Grandpa Samuel was a friend of Abraham Lincoln's during the Civil War, and that was why he named his son, after him.
