    Notes:

    Ichabod Thayer was born in 1721; his first wife, Hannah Bigelow, in 1704. This seems very unlikely. Their shared headstone at Pine Grove Cemetery appears to confirm it, but it was clearly put up long after their deaths. And then there's this, from Adin Ballou's 1882 History of Milford:

    "There comes down a bit of traditional romance concerning the courtship that led to this marriage. Ichabod had become of age and was looking around for a sweetheart. He had become slightly acquainted with a prepossessing lass, who dwelt in the extreme northerly part of what is now Milford, and resolved to offer her his hand, should she be willing to accept it. So he started from old Mendon in the early winter, near the close of the week, on his connubial mission. But a driving snow-storm opened upon him; and when he arrived at what is now the homestead of Justin H. Eames, the storm continued with unabated severity for two or three days. Meantime there sprang up a mutual attraction between the widow and her gallant guest. She was twenty yrs. the oldest, but still ruddy and agreeable; and as Cupid is not easily thwarted, he planted his arrows in their hearts so effectually that a match was ere long consummated. The snow-storm gave Mrs. Hannah an acceptable and willing prisoner. He went no further in pursuit of a wife."

    Ichabod married Hannah Bigelow in 1742. Hannah (daughter of Joshua Bigelow and Hannah Fiske) was born on 6 Mar 1704 in Watertown, Middlesex, Massachusetts; died in Dec 1791 in Milford, Worcester, Massachusetts; was buried in Pine Grove Cemetery, Milford, Worcester, Massachusetts.
