 Appreciate your listing of the pre-Edward Fuller material.  I'm just getting started on this stuff.  My great-grandfather,
Charles Parsons Jones, married Josephine E. Fuller, a direct descendant of Edward and Sam.

                    Got your mail Address from the net and this is a test message to see if it is still valid.

I am at present trying to trace various branch’s of the Dreaded Turnock's, it's called Genealogy, a terrible disease.
 As you will probably now be aware Turnock's are pretty thin on the ground in most places and are all probably closely related back a few centuries, I would be pleased If you or one of your family can contact me in the near future.

 Arthur T.

Ps any idea which branch your from?

 I read your web page on the King Philips War and could not find  Capt
Turner's Regiment, probably out of Salem, Mass. I had family, ie;
John Wilde
who served under Capt Turner during that War in 1676.

Sources of that information was:
List of Emmigrants to America 1600-1700 : Hutton
Founders of New England : Drake
Soldiers of King Philips War : Dodge

If you have any further info I would appreciate it

Thank you

Subject: Bigelow Cemetery and Kents
Date: Mon, 13 Aug 2001 21:20:18 EDT
From: Belinda Kent
My name is Belinda Kent and I have done some research on the Bigelow Cemetery in Madison Co.  Our Kents are buried there.  I have discovered that the people in the cemetery are related to the Samuel Kent and Desire Cushman Kent family.  I found her Bible records in the Union Co. OGS, which I will send to you.  Everyone in the cemetery are related and related to the Kents from her Bible records.  Desire Cushman was the first white grand daughter born in the US.  She was grand daughter of the Howlands that came over on the Mayflower.  I believe my research is starting to prove that most of the people buried in the cemetery may be descendants of the settlers of Plymouth Colony.  I have discovered some stones that were not recorded , such as Tinkham. Which is also a name from the colony.  I have been researching our Kent line for two years.  I may have made mistakes, who doesn't.  I have not put everything I have found in my files yet.  This letter is to help you be aware that there is a very good possiblilty that we come from Plymouth Colony Descendants.  Our Kents are buried there and most also be related to Hannah Kent.  If you look at my notes you may start to see the connections. You may need to do a liitle more research because I have not sent you everything.  I can tell you off hand that Lucinda Kent married E.W.Barlow whom was first married to a Bigelow.  They had a daughter and his first wife died. He then married Lucinda , whom was the daughter of Hiram Kent who is buried in the cemetery.  Lucinda had a brother Cicero.  That is our line.  Our line is as follows: James Kent from VA Silas Kent from NJ married Olive West from Conn. Hiram Kent from Franklin Co. OHio married Maranda(Miranda) Harrington Cicero Kent from Ohio married Margaret Morford Albert Kent from Madison Co. married Edith Poling Roy Kent from Madison Co. married Hazel Hildreth Donald Dean Kent from Ohio married Shirley Elleman    still living Dwight Dean Kent born in Logan Co. Ohio married Belinda Lambour our sons Kyle David Kent married Jaclyn Sewall Michael Dean Kent not married.

I am sending three emails with three files.  This one is the Bigelow Research.

        Decendants of 15572.2 Henry Bigelow
        Wed, 15 Aug 2001 13:01:38 EDT


I found your web site through John Buczek's Marlborough, MA site.

I have information on the decendants of Henry Bigelo, son of Jacob
and Sarah Heartwell.  He had one daughter, Ellen who married John
D.W. Williams in Dec. 1832.

About 20 years ago at an "antique" flea market my parents found an
old bible that was for sale.  They bought it because it was lovely
and deserved a home.  The bible was presented to Henry Bigelow
Williams by his grandmother Sophia Field Bigelow.  It includes
births, marriages and deaths for most of Ellen Bigelow Williams'
decendants until 1917.  It even has a entry for Ellen's death, which
I saw was missing from your database, "Ellen Bigelow Williams died at
Concord, Mass., her summer home May 17th 1901. Aged 86 yrs. 6

I have attached a MSWord file that has a typed list of the data in
the bible.  I have also inserted into the document scanned images of
the actual pages.  Let me know if you have any problems opening the
document and I will send you the info by "snail mail."

Also, I am interested if any of Ellen's direct decendants have
contacted you.  I would be willing to "return" the bible to them.

So glad I could be of help.  This was the first time that I have really been able to add information for
someone, and I was very excited.  My husband was laughing at me because I was bouncing around
the house singing "I've found him!"  I have only recently discovered the direct connection to Roger
Conant, and that was a thrill.

Hopefully, we can be of help to each other in the future.  Be well.
