Note:
In case you want more Bigelows for your database, I'm descended from one of Samuel's son's, Ithamar, born 30 Jul 1745 in Shrewsbury; married Persis Barrett 16 Feb 1769 in Paxton, MA, and died 10 Mar 1807 in Paxton.

One of their son's was Timothy, born 4 Oct 1770, in Paxton; married Anna Earle in Paxton 15 Jun 1797, died 1 Feb 1838 in Barre, VT.  One of their daughters, Persis, born 8 Nov 1798 in Barre, married Francis Keith in 1832.  Their daughter, Ellen Keith, born 19 June 1833; md Irvin Rollins, 4 Apr 1859; died 4 Apr 1891 in Elgin, MN, is my gt gt grandmother.

Timothy and Persis Bigelow are buried in Barre, VT, and I visited their grave in August.  Persis (Bigelow) Keith's mother and grandfather Earle are also buried there.
