More information from descendant:
My name is Don Wrighter. I am researching the Wrighter family. I was pleasantly
surprised to find your Bigelow website. I have been looking for information
on William Briggs Bigelow and Julia Wrighter on and off for almost a year.
I was having trouble finding these two. This is because she died before her
name was mentioned on a census.
I was also looking in the wrong
place. Julia's father John Milton Wrighter moved from Mt. Pleasant to Susquehanna
County. The county history of Susquehanna mentioned that Julia and William
moved to N.Y. This will save me a good bit of time and money now that I won't
have to start collecting vital records.
Do you have any additional information
about their children? I would also like to go over some of the sources. Is
there any more information about specific sources used, etc... Perhaps
there are some additional clues on the Wrighter family in there.
I used to live in Hallstead, Pa. Donald A. Wrighter email: Don.A.Wrighter@gpc.com
Maybe somebody out there will add to this information.............ROD 5/11/98
