     In regard to Elnathan Bigelow, I was looking for persons that could of been in a battle of the war of 1812 that I am researching and noticed that Elnathan died around the time of the battle and was following up on him. The information seems to be limited on him, even in the pension files. I see that that remains true on the Bigelow's sites. The following information I have on Elnathan is as follows, if you are interested and want to update his files.
