Thank you for the detail regarding Jonathan Bigelow [s. of Jonathan and Mable (Edwards) Bigelow], wife Tabitha Coleman and their apparent children at Hartford. Is this material from Barbour's unpublished "Early Hartford Families"?
Mabel Edwards was the younger sister of my ancestor Anne (Edwards) (Richardson) Davenport, through Anne's son Amos by Jonathan Richardson. On the other hand, Thankful (Coleman) Bigelow was the younger sister of Comfort, who had three husbands – 1) Crafts Goodrich, 2) John Post and 3) William Wright. Whereas I known the ancestry of Comfort's last two husbands, Crafts Goodrich's ancestry is blind and for whom I am searching. The addition of the details regarding Comfort's sister Tabitha, and the rest of Tabitha and Comfort's siblings may lead me to a necessary clue for Craft Goodrich's illusive parents.
In that context, because the Coleman and Goodrich families were from Wethersfield, I recently downloaded the pdf version of Vol. VII and VIII of the Connecticut Magazine. It contains the printed transcription of the baptism "Diary of Rev. Stephen Mix" of the Wethersfield Church (1698-1735). It includes the following two baptisms of the first two children of Lieut. Timothy Bigelow [s. of Jonathan and Mable (Edwards) Bigelow] and wife Abigail at Wethersfield, who were not baptized like the rest of the children at the 1st Church of Hartford:
Vol. VIII (1903-4),
p. 156. "Feb'y 11, 1727-8. Hezekiah, child of Timothy Begelo."
p. 158. "May 31, 1730. Timo: child of Timothy Begelo."
