Family information in OH:
 Mary Ann Bigelow said to have been Quaker, married a Mr. Teeples and had one child when she was 16 years old, who was also named Mary Ann after her mother.  When Teeples died, Mary Ann Bigelow (Teeples) married Joshua Wood, a Quaker.  She gave birth to a daughter when she was 54 who was called 'Teeny' because she was so small.  Mary Ann Bigelow Teeples Wood died in her 84th year.
 What I have documented:
 The second Mary Ann (Teeples) married Lewis Rodgers, my great-grandfather and named her first child, Rebecca Bigelow Rodgers.  I also have a certified copy of the marriage record for Mary Teeples and Joshua Wood.  The 1860 Census shows Joshua and Mary Wood (age 59) with a daughter (age 5), Eva.  Could this be "Teeny"?
1850 Census shows that Lewis & Mary Rodgers lived next to Isaac Kirby, son of Rebecca Bigelow Kirby.
She had a brother named Isaac Kirby Rodgers.  Neighbors Samuel and Orpah Wood could be related to Joshua since she also had a brother named Joshua Wood Rodgers and a sister named Eva Wood Rodgers. 
What I wonder:
 Could your Mary Kirby dau of Thomas and Rebecca Bigelow also be the mother of Mary Ann Teeples?.. could be..................ROD
