Notes for Samuel Bigelow

!Information from web site:
Listing source for data as: Bigelow Family Genealogy Vol. I Page 13/14 and also death dates from Headstone in Grove Hill Cemetery, Waltham, MA.

His will was drawn up 30 Sept 1720,and mentions sons John, Samuel, Thomas, and Isaac; daughters Mercy Garfield, Abigail Cutler, and Deliverance Stearns, sons-in-law Thomas Read, Josiah Howe, and Daniel Warren; grandchildren David Bruce, Nathaniel Read, Isaac Read, Thomas Read, Catherine Read; Phinehas Howe, Abraham Howe, Rachel Howe, Samuel Warren, Daniel Warren, and Hannah Warren. The three daughters received L17 each.
Howe's Bigelow genealogy gives no death date for Samuel,stating that the will was probated 21 February 1731. However Waltham town records clearly give Samuel's death as 1 February 1732,and since Samuel's son Thomas lived in Waltham from 1720 onward, we assume that Samuel and wife spent their declining years in Thomas' home. Mary, wife of Samuel died ; 7 September 1720; her death is recorded both Watertown and Waltham. Their headstones are still visible in Waltham.
