I was amazed and delighted to find your Bigelow genealogy site on the web.  My husband, Norman, is a descendant of Amy Bigelow.  Amy married Francis Blood on May 3, 1853.  If it would be new information and of interest to you I have information on Amy and Francis'  descendents.  I don't have anything on Francis Blood's ancestors.  If, by some chance, you
have anything I would be grateful to receive it.  Thanks for the great web site.Sincerely, Judy Cole
