 2011 Note:
Thank you so much for sharing your work on the Bigelow family.  While this is not my line, I am doing a genealogy for my great granddaughter on her father's side.  I appreciate seeing your sources and the extra materials you included. Wonderful!  You have made my day.     I was stuck on the Levi Arnold line (of Marlborough) and decided to do his wife.  My lucky day.
