    Notes 
    • Joshua BIGELOW was a soldier in King Philip's war in Capt. Ting's company and was wounded, and in consideration of his services in that war the General Court gave him a grant of land in Narragansett No. 2. He lived in Watertown the most of his life and his children were born there, and when his father died he was appointed executor of the will with his brother-in-law Isaac Learned, and was a well known citizen in Watertown; but late in life (his 87th year), being anxious to reside on the land that he had earned at the peril of his life, removed from Watertown (in company with his son Eleizer) to the grant of land in Narragansett No. 2, now Westminster, making the journey 9 June 1742, where he spent the last years of his life. He was the first adult to die in that new town, on 1 Feb 1745.
