Dear Rod,
I noticed your Bigelow page on the Internet.  Would be happy to share information on Polly who married Nathan Durkee if you have need for that data.  I had contact some years ago, of a direct descendant of that line. We are working on a two volume genealogy of the Durkee family. Bernice Gunderson   berniceg@juno.com
