Hello Rod, I believe my father in law, Dick Bigelow has written before
concerning some of the stones he has found in the South Skowhegan cemetery.
While on an outing today we came across some more that we thought you might
be interested in. There is a beautiful state stone near the front of the
cemetery with Cynthea Bigelow wife of John E. Died July 31, 1825 age 28.
I believe he to be the confussing wife of John 16251.34t. We found together
Artemas and Prudence Bigelow along with two of their children all in the
same plot: Artemas died July 16, 1879 age 75 yrs 3 mos Prudence wife of Artemas
died June 19 1897 age 80 yrs Clara wife of Samuel Brown died Dec 26, 1934
age 84 yrs Frank C. died July 17 1891 age 42 yrs 9 mos In another plot marked
by a low iron rail fence are two sons of Hiram and Harriet-the ones that
moved to Kansas. They are Hiram G son of Hiram and Harriet Bigelow died Feb
16 1873 age 23 yrs and an Infant son of Hiram and Harriet Bigelow died Jan
23, 1858 age 4 mos 15 days On a large stone of granite near the front right
of the cemetery are Israel Sawyer Bigelow Born May 28, 1804 died Oct 16,
1889 His wife Elizabeth Bunker born May 28, 1828 died Oct 18, 1905 Their
son I.F. born May 10, 1834 died June 27, 1904 Isreal's brother John
Harlow Bigelow (called Harlow) Jan 12, 1807 died Sept 9 1901. Their
mother Esther Coburn born Jan 10 1764 died Jan 16 1846. and a Dr. F.S. Bigelow
born April 3, 1853 and died June 11, 1950 Levi E. Bigelow died Aug 15 1894
age 72 and his wife Marcia S died Aug 17 1903 age 78 are buried together
under the same stone Edith E Bigelow 1872-1942 married to William Wescott
1867-1940 Our most unusual find was an oblisk bearing the name Bigelow and
under it 10 head stones. The stones vary with information but this
is what they say and then our best guess as to who they are: Augustus dates
look like 1816-1896 Georgia again looks like 1856-1911 Vonia M 1885-1885
clear dates Frank 1883-1901 clear dates Boardman no dates Mother no name
or dates Father no name or dates Grandmother no name or dates Grandfather
no name or dates Uncle Nathan no name or dates. I believe the first
to be Augustus W son of George(16251.37t) and Martha Boardman Due to
the dates on the stone I believe Georgia to be Georgiana ( Friend) and
not the daughter. Then Vonia and Frank are two of his children. Mother
would be Martha Boardman Bigelow Father would be George 16251.37t Grandmother
would be Mary Sawyer Bigelow Grandfather would be George 16251.3 Uncle Nathan
would be Nathan 16251.3Bt son of George Only Guess for Boardman would
be a member of Martha's family The stones for Augustus and Georgia are wearing
and the dates are hard but not yet difficult to read. Willard E Bigelow
1854 (no death date) and his wife Louisa E 1850-1928 Albert S Bigelow 1837-1892
and his wife Martha J died July 8 1893 age 52 yrs 4 mos His first wife Livona
died Sept 19 1862 age 19 yrs 10 mos Robert L Bigelow 1889-1922 his wife
Blanch 1875-1909 thier sons Forest D 1904-1906 and Robert L. 1900-1961
I hope this information helps some. I know there was some confussion
with Cynthea wife of John E and there was missing dates for Artemas and his
Sincere Best Wishes
