I really enjoyed reading the information you researched and put together on the Bigelow ancestry.  My mother (Shirley (Taylor) Biewald) has done extensive research on the Taylor ancestry.  She might like to hear from you and can be reached at  My great X7 grandfather is Stephen Taylor of Hartford CT. (1674-1745) who married Violet Bigelow in Hartford on September 1st, 1709.  Many thanks for all the work you did putting all that info together.  I really appreciate it.    Kurt Biewald    E-mail
