Descendent note:
 Hi,I have been looking at all the information I can get my hands on regarding Bigelow's for the past couple of
 weeks. About 12 years ago or so Patricia Bigelow contacted my grandfather (now deceased), and then my father, Gerald
 Bigelow of Alma, Michigan for information about our family. My decendents are, according to Patricia Bigelow:
Gerald  Bigelow (10), William (9), William (8), Ebenezer (7), Elijah 6, Noah 5, Cornelius 4 Samuel 3, Samuel 2, John 1. The only information I can find on my grandfather, William (9) is his social security number and birth and death dates. I have lots of names, dates and history from our branch of  the family if you would like it, including the names of William's(8) fourteen children and many of their grandchildren since I grew up in the same town with many of my second, third and fourth cousins. Also our family now consists of several Bigelows of generation (13). If you already have most of this information please let me know where I can find it.
