Your website for Thankful Bigelow lists Orlanda Sinclair. Our books spell her name as Orlinda Sinclair... my husband's
great-grandmother. First wife of to Charles Parker. Look for her name on internet and you will find the Sinclair
genealogy. Look in used bookstores (Advance Book Exchange) and you will find the interesting Civil War memoirs of Orlinda's son, David Bigelow Parker. "A Chautauqua Boy".
