 Hello!  I hope you can provide some data missing from my genealogy of the Colburn family.  My husband's great great grandfather, Ephraim Colburn,b.Jan. 1, 1777 in Leominster, Mass. married Hannah Bigelow, Daughter of Nathaniel Bigelow and Susannah Jennings.  She was born in 1780.  The marriage took place in Leominster on Aug. 17, 1800. Among the children born of this marriage, were 2 sons named Ephraim.  The first was born in Feb. 1803 and apparently died young.  The second, my husband's great grandfather was born May 20, 1821, but where?  The published genealogy of the Colburn family ends our line with the firstborn Ephraim. Would like to document the place of birth of our Ephraim since all we have at present are family Bible records.  Any information would be most appreciated.  Thank you! (see below)

New Note 03/29/06:
From:   Lorraine Travers
Dear Rod:   I wrote to you some years ago seeking some info on the marriage of Hannah Bigelow to Ephraim Colburn.  A recent query from another Colburn researcher sent me back to my old files.   There seems to be a difference of opinion regarding the mother of Hannah Bigelow.  My sources list her as Susannah Jennings, who died after giving birth to 4 children, after which Nathaniel Bigelow married Anne Rider in 1782. - that information is in the Framingham MA Vital records up to 1850.   My correspondent insists that Susannah died in 1773, thus, she could not have been the mother of Hannah.  I don't expect you to settle the dispute, but I HAVE completed the genealogy of Ephraim and Hannah Bigelow Colburn and will be happy to share it if you want to add it to your Bigelow Society Genealogy.
Best Wishes,

Lorraine Travers
