Hello, my name is Christine Fallon. I am a direct descendant from Hepsibeh Bigelow and John Wenzel of Framingham, MA. However, the information that I have about her and what you have about her are not quite the same. I have her
birth date as being September 24, 1767. You have her birthday September 24, 1757. Also the marriage dates are not the same. You have the year as being 1792, while I have the year as being 1790. The month and day are the same.
My sources are from the Descendants of Henry Wenzel. The original manuscript is kept at The New England Genealogical Society. Copies of this manuscript has been passed down from generations. Also Family Tree Maker CD#231, Marriage Index:Massachusetts, 1633-1850. If indeed the dates I have are wrong, I would like to see your records so that I can update my records. I can also give you information of descendants of their children, that you do not have.
