 I just ran across the web site as I just recently started tracing my families.My Bigelow connection comes through Rachel, daughter of Amasa ad Roxanne Cone, who married David Loomer. His son, Stephen married Massa Lyon and their daughter married W. B. Mayo who were my great grand parents. Their daughter Lucy married Ned Benschoter whose Daughter Neola Joyce was my mother and married George Redding Maddison. My dad's mother's family goes back to Richard Warren, a Mayflower passenger.

Hi, I came across your page.  I am a descendant of Stephen Loomer and Mary Miller.  I have Addie Sheppards book.  I am looking for your recent Bigelow  generations.  I have documented up to the early 1900's.  I can possibly give you information if needed. 
If you should reply, write Loomer in the subject box so that I don't delete it by mistake.
I have been working on my family history for a few years now.  I hope to hear from you.
