     My Great Aunt, Lucy Hemenway Royce, gave me a chart many years ago that traces her roots back to William Bradford, Governor of the Plymouth Plantations, and along the way has Daniel Hemenway marrying Ruth Bigelow, Daughter of Samuel Bigelow and Ruth Warren! You have all sorts of Warrens, but no you suppose Aunt Lucy had a wrong name? She did have Fitel instead of Fitch, but that may have been a handwriting glitch..Mary and Ruth wouldn't be a problem in handwriting! Sigh.... Do you have any information on Samuel marrying Ruth Warren?

Mr Bigelow,
       Sir, I descend from Ruth BIGELOW through her marriage on 07 June 1743 to Daniel HEMENWAY.  Of course, going backwards is her father Samuel 3, his
father Samuel 2, and John 1.  Ruth and Daniel's son Daniel H married Mary CARROLL, followed by their son Rufus HEMENWAY and Lucy TAYLOR, followed by
their daughter Mary HEMENWAY's marriage to Enoch BARKER, followed by their daughter Amelia Lucy BARKER's marriage to James Lawrence
SAMPSON, followed by their son Wilbur James SAMPSON's marriage to Mary Katherine SPEAS, followed by their daughter Margaret Belle SAMPSON
who married my grandfather, Joseph Ephraim HARMON.  My mother Katherine Martha HARMON married James Austin DAVIS.  If you want dates and locales, I
can provide them.  This site was done..................beautifully !  Thank you ! ..Désirée de Nantes
