     I am a descendant of Olive Stone Bigelow & Dewey Hubbell Robinson and quite familiar with your website for the past couple of years (You may recall having received some comments from me last year re: annual pre-Civil War treks from Troy NY to Woodville MS by Olive and her sister, Lorraine Bigelow Squire and their children.) I  have recently come across some interesting info that thus far has proven difficult to pin down with any degree of certainty!
     While reading about the history of the settlement of Jericho, Chenango County NY, I found a list of the Vermont Sufferers, who were given land in Chenango (a wilderness in 1786) due to their loss of  property in the "range wars" between NY and VT.  Clearly listed was the name JOTHAM BIGELOW!  Well, there was ANOTHER Jotham Bigelow who came to St. Louis about 1850 from NY with his cousin, Peers Griffin (b. Ireland 1830), who had recently immigrated to US. They were architects/builders who lived in Webster Groves (where I have lived my whole life) and built many fine homes, many of which are still standing and in great condition. (I lived in one of them for 15 years).  They were extremely successful and well-known, well-respected members of the community. (WG is 10 miles from the Mississippi River in Downtown St. Louis - settled before 1850 & grew rapidly after railroads went through, providing commuter service. There are three residential historic districts, encompassing about 500 houses.)
     I can find just a few shreds about anyone named Jotham that could possibly be a match:  perhaps he is Jotham Richardson Bigelow, b. 1811 in MA, s/o Josiah and Lucinda Bigelow? Or how about Jotham Bigelow b. 9/8/1820, s/o Jotham Bigelow and Lois Drury, and h/o Julia Warden, whom he married 3/13/1851? At any rate, there seems to be no mention of this man on your website, and I wonder why not! I would appreciate some hot tips, if any are available.  Thanks so much.
