Hannah, d. Ebenezer and Hanna, b. July 12, 1743. Upton V.R. ‎(Page #41)‎.

Information about this family from <WWW.slic.com and Hannah Bigelow lived in Upton for a year or two, then moved to Westborough, where we find they were warned ‎(according to the custom of the times)‎ to leave town in 1763. They do not appear to have done so, as several of their children were later born in Westborough.

The Bigelow history credits Paul with having served throughout the American Revolution. Massachusetts service records state that Paul served 11 days as a drummer in the local militia, on 19 Apr 1775, in the Battle of Concord and Lexington, and toward the end of the war served
an additional few months.

Paul and family moved to Windham county, Vermont at the end of the Revolution. He was ennumerated on the 1790 census at Dummerston, Vermont. Only three children were then living at home. In 1800 he and wife Hannah were living in Chesterfield, Cheshire county, New Hampshire, living next door to their oldest son, Ebenezer. By 1802 they had returned to Vermont, and settled at Brookline, Windham county. The Bigelow genealogy says that he removed to Montreal with his sons, but we cannot prove this. His death date is given as 1 Mar 1806, probably at Brookline. ‎(We are attempting to prove the place of death and burial.)‎ His widow remained at Brookline many years, but in 1826 removed with their son Job
to Ashford, Cattaraugus county, NY. She died there 3 Sep 1835; there is no marker for her in the family cemetery at Thomas Corners, Ashford.

Paul was a smith by trade. It is said he was a goldsmith, but a smith in that period was most likely to be skilled in all types of metal-working, from rough forge work to silver and gold smithing.
