My wife descends from Robert Day. I have information on the parents and lineage of Anna Day, wife of James Bigelow (1764 - 1840) if you are interested. Her parents were Noah Day and Ann Loomis. I didn't know if you already have the information and just
haven't posted it, if you don't have it, or if it's a family that you're not really interested in. But I thought I'd make contact with you in case you'd be interested.
Let me know if you would like more info., including her birthdate, etc.
I really enjoyed visiting your page. The cemetery pictures are a very nice touch.
