Hello, I'm looking for info on: JOEL BIGELOW, (son of JOTHAM & MARY (RICHARDSON) BIGELOW was born 20 June 1752 at Holden, Worcester County, MA. His father had early removed to Guilford,Windham County, VT. Joel settled there, where he owned a large farm in the center of town, and where their children were born.
(or) his son Jotham: Jotham 6 BIGELOW, son of Joel 5 ( Jotham 4, John 3,Samuel 2, John 1) and Sarah (STOWELL ) BIGELOW, was
born at Guilford, Windham county, VT, 28 January 1784. He married (1) 01 January 1811 Celinda Bullock of Guilford. After her death, he married (2) 25 September 1824 Nancy Nichols. They moved from Guilford to Ellisburg, Jefferson County, NY, where he was prominent in local affairs, and served in the State Assembly 1837. He was a Supervisor at Ellisburg 1831-1836 and died 16 August 1860
(or) his other son William M. (I dont know much about him). William is my 3x great-grandfather and I am guessing that he came to Ellisburg from VT to work for his brother Jotham.
Joel was also a Col. in the militia during the Revolutionary War but thats as much as I know about that.
I plan on vacationing in Guilford, VT next Sept to see what I can dig up (not literally) on my ancestors who came from there.
Any help on any of these men would be greatly appreciated.
