I have come upon your website as I am tracking down my family tree, and I am quite sure I have a correction to make to your Canadian connection of Bigelows!!!
Nancy "Annie" Bigelow (15336.573), daughter of George and Margaret (Kerr/Carr) Bigelow, born in Argenteuil county Quebec.Married John Tompkins in Grenville. 
Their first daughter Margaret Tompkins (born Jan. 8, 1852), married my great grandfather Robert Rayson - not Radsen - on February 26 1877. (15336.5731)
I guess we have no way to be 100% certain, but I have the church documents (photocopies) from the wedding of Robert Rayson and Margaret Tompkins which name the parents etc. 
I thought you'd like to know, and I thank you for the opportunity to see all the research you have done, on your website!  If only all my ancestors kept such good records!
Thanks again,
Wendy Rayson-Kerr

I was searching for information on part of my family that married into the Tompkins family and came across your website.
15336.5733 - John Tompkins born 1857; m 01 Aug. 1881 Elizabeth (Ferguson)
 Elizabeth Ferguson was actually Anna Jane Millar by birth and the widow Ferguson after the death of her first husband.
Do you know of anyone who is searching John Tompkins line as I would like to exchange information with anyone who may be interested.
Thank you,
