  4. Source:Howe, Gilman Bigelow. Genealogy of the Bigelow Family of America, p. 70, in its listing of children for Benjamin Bigelow and 3rd wife Elizabeth Colman, does not include a daughter Elizabeth, but there is a gap between Benjamin b. 1755 (the last child found in Lunenburg) and Beulah 1762 (supposedly the first child born in Fitzwillam, NH). The distribution of Benjamin's estate in 1774 (unfortunately before Elizabeth married) here names children as Solomon oldest son, Joel, Benjamin, Ezekiel, Elizabeth, Beulah and Rachel, a list that appears to be in birth order. This would be good agreement with our estimated birth for Elizabeth of about 1760, but this is a speculative identification as no evidence directly connects her to this family.
