Note from descendant:
Hi!  Wanted you to know how much I've enjoyed reading about the Bigelow family.  both of my parents have lines that tie in to John Bigelow:  one through Jonathan & the other through Joshua. For Hannah Bigelow (Elisha, Joseph, Jonathan, John), you had no information beyond her baptismal date.  Well, you'll be happy to know the ground didn't swallow her up.  She married Peter Beebe who was from MA & had 2 sons and 2 daughters.  They were living in NY; the family was "of Perry Center", Genesse, NY.  I know that she must have died at some time, but I don't have a date.  My mother probably has more information if anyone is interested. Thanks again for the great amount of historical information.  It's fascinating.

Hi Rod,
Do you have any info on Roderick Bigelow, who lived in Warren County , N.C.? He married Elizabeth  Pattilloe on 20 Nov 1811. I believe  his son Deloney/Delaney born abt  1815 is my gr,gr,gr grandfather. seeDeloney is listed on the S.C. census 1860 as being 45 years old and married to Margaret (McClellan) age 26. He is listed as a school teacher and born in N.C.  Is this Roderick (12956) the son of Elisha(1295) the same Roderick of Warren County, N.C. There is also a will for Roderick
Bigelow, 1819, in Caswell County N.C. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.   Muril Hanna

Hello, I have been searching for the grave of Hannah Bigelow Beebe  born 3 May 1765.
Her parents where Hannah Nichols Bigelow b.8 May 1720 and Elisha Bigelow
b.22 Jun 1723 d. 24 Jun1796. Her husband died
in the Town of Perry, NY in 1834 but I have been unable to find if she was
living at that time. She was not listed in his will. Thanks for any info.
I did want to comment that my decendant Patience Beebe,
daughter of Hannah and Peter Beebe, married  William Redford. From their
marriage came my decendant Mary Ann Redford. I have a picture of Mary Ann b.
1815 and all Mother to daughter pictures until present starting with her.
8 generations of pictures in all.

I just came across your web page and I have a question.  For Elisha Bigelow
and Sarah Spencer you list that their children's baptisms were taken from
church records.  Please tell me what church records and where were they
from.  I would like to order the microfilm.
I am related to Hannah Bigelow who married Peter Beebe.

I have been looking atyour website and wondering if you can tell me what church records you found the information about these two people (and their children) in?
 I am a descendant through their daughter Hannah, and I am looking for good sources of documentation for this line, and I would really appreciate any information you might have.
 Thank you so much!    Heather Smith Wisconsin
According to Howe page 48, the Church records were from "The First Church" of Hartford, CT..............ROD
