Descendant note:
For any who are interested I am a direct descendent of Dr. Asa Ambrose Bigelow of Toledo, Ohio through his son William Edgar, grandson Chester Charles Sr. and Great grandson Chester Charles Jr. I have marriage and birth documentation for William Edgar which shows his father and mother. I would like to collaborate with Bigelows searching revolutionary war service by Oliver 6, John 5 or John 6, and the land aquisition by them that resulted in the founding of Johnstown, Ohio.
