Hi there! I have tried twice before to send you an e-mail, but both times something happened. Anyway, my GGGGGgrandmother was Mary Bigelow born Jan. 1733-34. She was a daughter of Cornelius and Mary Graves or Greaves Bigelow. She married Jonathan Cook. Their son Jonathan Cook  was born in or near Westborough  Ma. He married Charlotte Maynard, they had 2 children, then around 1786-1788, they moved to a mountaintop in New Hampshire, and had 4 more children. This is where my Cook genealogy starts. Anyway my genealogy has the wife of Cornelius Bigelow as Mary Greaves! Do you have any info beyond Cornelius? Thank you.

Does anyone out there have any info about Mary Bigelow who was the daughter of Cornelius Bigelow and Mary Graves? She was born at Marlborough, MA in 1734 and married Jonathan Cook at Westborough, MA in 1758.They were my GGGGGgrandparents. They had at least three children, Mary born in 1759, Jonathan born in 1760 (my GGGGgrandfather) and Luther born in 1764. Jonathan and Luther moved to NH in the 1780s and their sister Mary may have remained in MA. with their parents, I cannot find another thing as to what happened to Jonathan and Mary Bigelow, or if they had other children besides these three. Does anyone have a clue? Thanks for any info.
