Dear Rod,
Last fall I came across your info on the web on Martha Bigelow. I am researching the Garfield family tree. I was wondering if we could talk
further regarding your info? Please contact me at your earliest convenience. Thank-you, Christine
When one is working on ones family tree, they should make sure not to work so hard on it, that they find out they may have married their own cousin! - Chrissy
I came across your info on Martha last fall. On #16228.43 - Fanna Fisk -You have a death date of 02/17/1866, according to the print out I got from Schroon, NY her death date was 02/07/1866. I was wondering your source, so I can double check that one and these records from Schroon. They also list her place of birth as Whiting,VT. You have her married to a Seelacius. All records I have, have his named spelled Selucius. You have him as the son of Elisha. Records I have, have him listed as the son of Elijah. My interest in all this, is that it seems this Elijah is my G.G.G.G. Grandfatther. And after running into a few brick walls, I decided to try going down some of the spouses lines to see if I could find out anything more.
#16228.46 - Ansel - is that a male or a female?
#16228.4D - Stephen Bateman - how does he fit into all of this?

Now in regards to Mercy Bigelow....... I too had her as a daughter of Joshua Bigelow and Elizabeth Flagg. Where does Bond correct himself? Also I was wondering about this Howe error.
I would REALLY appreciate any info you have or come across on the Garfields, ESPECIALLY ELIJAH. It seems according to all the records I have read that he originally moves to Schroon with out any family, then two sons join him in 1806 at young ages, but there is no mention of his wife coming or being buried there or of his son Caleb C. Garfield, my G.G.G. Grandfather, ever going there. After calling and writing to everyone I can think of in NY and VT, I still have not come across any real info on either one of them. So I would really appreciate any help you may offer on those two.
Sincerely, Christine
