Dr. Elihu Bigelow (1792-1821) Elihu and Lydia Lyons Bigelow moved to the Johnstown area in Licking County, Ohio where Elihu's Uncle Oliver had acquired a 4,000 tract of land. They probably traveled with his uncle and Oliver's daughter Eunice. Lydia and Elihu had son John Lyman Bigelow born on August 21, 1817. Elihu's wife Lydia died at Johnstown, Ohio in 1817. She was buried at Bigelow Cemetery.
After Lydia's death, Elihu married Hannah Kasson on May 11, 1818. He served as the Justice of the Peace at Johnstown, Ohio. He officiated at quite a few marriages in the Johnstown, Licking County, Ohio area. Elihu and Hannah Kasson Bigelow had two sons born to them. See Orrin Spencer and Elihu Bigelow.
After Elihu died in 1821 his wife remarried William Duke in 1824 and had five more children.
Children of Dr. Elihu and Hannah Bigelow: Orrin Spencer Bigelow (1819- 1899) Elihu Bigelow (1821 - 1902)
Eunice Bigelow (1801 - 1816) Since fourteen year-old Eunice is buried at Bigelow Cemetery, it is assumed that she traveled with her father and other family members to Oliver's new purchase in Licking County, Ohio. It is possible that Eunice's mother, Esther Harding Bigelow did not accompany them to this new land because she still had a very young child (Harriett Bigelow) still at home.
