Research Notes

After the death of his wife Mary Warren (1624-1691) in 1691, John Bigelow (1616-1703) married (2) on 2 October 1694, Sarah Bemis (1643-1712), daughter of Joseph Bemis (1619-1684). She outlived him.

Sarah Bemis, dau of Joseph and Sarah ( ___ ) Bemis was born 15 Jan 1642/3 Boston, Of Watertown, Middlesex, MA; died 1712 Watertown, Middlesex, MA; and buried: 1712 Watertown, Middlesex, MA; she married 2 Oct 1694 Watertown, Middlesex, MA, John Bigelow and his second wife and had no children.

There seems to be confusion and doubt about whether this Sarah Bemis was the widow of Joseph Bemis, born about 1612, or the daughter of Joseph Bemis, Sarah Bemis, born January 15, 1643. He would have been 25 years older than the daughter. Both ladies were apparently living and "available" during this time of marriage. Torrey reports whichever one it was died before 1712.
