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.
