Comments: This has been on my "Favorites" since 1998, just after Mr. Bigelow died. I think. Real happy to see all the
improvements you have added, and that it is now updated to 1/2000. I have been comparing my pages of "LOOMER
FAMILY AND ALLIED LINES" and the pages on BIGELOW researched in the Burton Collection of the Detroit Main
Library before 1981. My information shows Isaac 4 Bigelow married to Abigail Skinner, daughter of Ebenezer and
Sarah (Lord) Skinner. (not Abigail Lord) I am a descendant of 1592C.t Amasa 5 Bigelow m. Rosina (Roxanna)
Cone. If I hunt further in your pages, I hope to find them,. I am so far, very pleased with your beautiful work. Hope to see
more about Vol. II. Used to get the FORGE", AND HAVE MANY OLD COPIES ON MY SHELF. Used to live in
Pontiac, Mi. and attended 1 reunion held in Daytona, FL. Thank you for all you are doing. Keep it up. There are quite a
number of BIGELOW descendants who moved to S.E. Wisconsin. I am also descended from Amasa's daughter SARAH
BIGELOW who m. Benjamin Rand. Have pictures of her, and her sister Ruby in an album. Further tracing goes to daughter of Sarah Bigelow and Benjamin Rand to dau: Lavina Ann Rand m. James McHugh (my greatgreat grandparents) and then their daughter Mary Jane McHugh b. 1841 m. Harris Loomer. I have 2 large framed pictures of these, my great-grandparents in my home office! There is a large annual reunion of the LOOMER FAMILY ASSOCIATION in Walworth Co. WI. (#68 in August.)
