My ancestry goes: John, Samuel, Samuel, Samuel, Ithamar, Timothy, and Persis Bigelow who married Francis Keith in Barre, VT, about 1832. Their daughter (my gt gt grandmother) came "west" Minnesota and is buried in Elgin, MN.
I'm especially interested in any information you may have on Jedidah Hathron who married Samuel Bigelow in 1729 in Marlborough, MA. I have nothing on her parents
In case you want more Bigelows for your database, I'm descended from one of Samuel's son's, Ithamar, born 30 Jul 1745 in Shrewsbury; married Persis Barrett 16 Feb 1769 in Paxton, MA, and died 10 Mar 1807 in Paxton.
One of their son's was Timothy, born 04 Oct 1770, in Paxton; married Anna Earle in Paxton 15 Jun 1797, died 1 Feb 1838 in Barre, VT. One of their daughters, Persis, born 08 Nov 1798 in Barre, married Francis Keith in 1832. Their daughter, Ellen Keith, born 19 June 1833; m Irvin Rollins, 04 Apr 1859; died 04 Apr 1891 in Elgin, MN, is my gt gt grandmother.
Persis, b 08 Nov 1798; d ___ 1838; m 1832 Francis KEITH (b 26 Mar
1796 Uxbridge, MA; res 1804 VT.
pg 607-608 Keith Family: Francis Keith, son of Abijah; Francis b 26 Mar 1796 Uxbridge, MA; 1804 in VT. m Persis Bigelow #1757; Children: Mary, Charles, Erastus, Lewis, who m 1858 Moracy Wilson; Ellen, and Elmira Keith. After death of Persis in 1838 Francis re-married and 3 more children.
Timothy and Persis Bigelow are buried in Barre, VT, and I visited
their grave in August. Persis (Bigelow) Keith's mother and
grandfather Earle are also buried there.
Thanks for the wonderful information! I (and my aunt and 3 cousins) got to Elmwood cemetery in Barre for the first time in August when we were in Corinth for a Colby family reunion (Ellen Keith married Irvin Rollins, son of Nancy (Colby) Rollins). We found the graves of Francis and Persis (Bigelow) Keith, and also saw the large, relatively new monument to Oliver Earle, but didn't look for Bigelow graves there -- I'll guess we'll just have to go back!!
I'm forwarding your info to Susan Laing in VT. She's about a 4th cousin, but also has Francis and Persis as ancestors. Have only met her on-line.Thank you very much! Janet Keysser

Thanks for the good work by a lot of people.
My family descends from: John, Samuel, Samuel, Samuel, Ithmar, Timothy, Persis - when she marries into the Keith line.
Do you know of any others who follow in this direction? Thanks Nancy
