Isaac 5 BIGELOW, third child, first son of Isaac 4 ( Isaac 3, Samuel2, John l) and Abigail (Skinner) Bigelow, was born 17 November 1737 at Colchester, New London, CT. He was admitted as a freeman 09 April 1759. During the French-and-Indian-War he served as follows: in 1755 in the 4th Regt, 3rd Co under Major William Whiting of Norwich from 06 Sept to 13 Dec; in 1756 in the 4th Regt, 4th Co. under Capt. Edmund Wells of Hebron as drummer between 19 May and 20 Oct; in 1758 again as drummer in the 2nd Regt, 12th Co, under Capt. Henry Champion of Colchester between 07 Apr and 07 Nov; and 1760 , as Corporal in 2nd Regt, 10th Co, under Capt. Peleg Redfield of Killingsworth. He is alleged to have been in the Continental service in 1777, but we fail to find a record.
Isaac married on 05 April 1759 Mary Chamberlain, daughter of Freedom and Mary (Soule) Chamberlain. She was born in 1738 at Colchester. The same year Isaac's father deeded him 13 acres in Colchester, the same tract transferred later that year to James Wells. About 1761 Isaac and family moved to Cornwallis, Nova Scotia, where they lived a number of years. Land records of 1767 and 1769 show his ownership of a small farm. At the outbreak of the American Revolution, Isaac and family returned to New England. In 1790 and 1800 they are shown at Dummerston, Windham county, VT. It is thought they moved with son Russel first to Franklin county, VT, then to Quebec, and that Isaac died at one or the other. His widow moved with Russel and family to Madison county, OH in 1813 and died at Worthington, OH ____.
