Hi Rod.
Joel (7) Bigelow- married to Laura E. Thomas- is listed as being buried in Northfield, CT. He isn't. He's buried in Northford Cemetary, North Branford, New Haven County, CT. I discovered this by chance. My Mom mentioned there was a Bigelow buried in the old cemetary so I checked it out and found Joel, Laura and 3 of his infant children there. Northford is a part of North Branford. I grew up in Northford. Next time I visit the folks, I will take a picture of the grave and forward it to you. I will also forward you the Northford Cemetery website.
