I  just located your article of Ezra 5 Bigelow and I believe I am a direct decendant of him - information I received from Pat Bigelow in 1984.  Where things tend to be a little gray is with one of his sons (either Enos or Joseph).  Do you have any additional information on them?  In particular, I am trying to determine which gentleman is the father of Alfred Bigelow (1795-1860's).  Alfred married Susanna Murlin and lived in Kentucky.
Again, just wanted to say hello and I appreciated your information/article on Ezra.

New Note 2023:
 Hello, I found the Bigelow Society site, love it! I believe that I am related to Alfred>Joseph>Ezra>David>Lt. John>Joshua>John. My family history says that Alfred and Susannah Murlin had a daughter, Sinai, between their first two sons--David and George. Sinai (Sarah? Sina Ann?) b. June 5, 1824, Kentucky, married Wm Harner in Ohio, then Robert McGregor in Illinois and finally to John Robinson in Illinois. Their son, Phillip Daniel Robinson was my great-grandfather. Do you have anything about Sinia?
Thank you,
Jeri Baker
