My husband is 11 gen. from John Bigelow.  I was copying the pages from your site.  When I got to Elisha 6 Bigelow, I could not access his children, though they are highlighted. I have quite a bit on Elisha's descendants in WI, including children for
Wealtha (3), Lucia (4), Cryton (8), Arvilla (2 sons), Ferrand (8).  Also have offspring of Ferrand's children for several more gen.  Are you interested?? The last time I saw a Bigelow Society printout (abt 1987) the full names of Elverton 8 Bigelow's daughters' husbands were not listed.  Since Ethel & Minnie married Parkinson brothers, I have lots on them.  My husband is
grandson of Ethel. Let me know if you want these lines, and how to proceed.  I have Family Tree Maker 5.0, can make gedcom file for you.  Kathy Parkinson

Thanks for helping me put a piece of the puzzle together.
Sheldon P. WOOLSEY and Malinda are buried just a few rows over from my grandparents in the same cemetery.  As I am a WOOLSEY descendant, I found your website MOST interesting!  I'm still looking for Sheldon's parents, but you've helped me solve the dilemma of what Malinda's maiden name was.  They are buried with several of their children.  I have a photo of their headstone if this interests you.
BTW, Horatio Nelson BIGELOW is buried in the West Union Cemetery in West Union, IA, with a wife named Sarah G.  Could this be the same "Dora" as you have him listed with.  Shows that they had one child.
Thanks again,

 Hi Rod,
My paternal grandmother was Agnes Ida WOOLSEY.  She told my mom once upon a time, that Sheldon P. WOOLSEY was a relative.
Is there anything in your realm, that indicates whom his parents were?
According to census and cemetery records, I show the following children, as "known":

Alta M. WOOLSEY, b. 21 May 1859 WI, d. 21 Dec 1878, Fayette Co., IA
Minna WOOLSEY, b. 29 Mar 1870 IA, d. 23 Aug 1870, Fayette Co., IA
Mattie WOOLSEY, b. 29 Mar 1870 IA, d. 17 Aug 1870, Fayette Co., IA.
Volney J. WOOLSEY, b. abt 1871 IA  (no final disposition on this person).
Frank B. WOOLSEY, b. 2 Feb 1873 IA, 22 Dec 1878, Fayette Co., IA.
(Baby) WOOLSEY, b. 15 Aug 1876 IA, D. 15 Aug 1876, Fayette Co., IA.
Alice C. WOOLSEY, b. May 1880 IA, (no final disposition on this person).

Sheldon, Malinda and children are all buried in the Dunham Grove Cemetery, Randalia, Fayette Co., IA. (about two rows over from my grandparents).
Randalia is in Center Township.

My cemetery book for the West Union Cemetery shows that Horatio Nelson married Sarah G. (nee unk), and had daughter Eda.  Horatio and Sarah are
buried in the West Union Cemetery, West Union, Union Township, Fayette co., IA.  Your web site indicates that he married a Dora.  I wonder if they
are one and the same person.  It does say that they had one child. Dates for Horatio, b. 1835, d. 30 Sep 1915.  Sarah G., b. 1845, no death
date listed. Again, thanks for the help that your website provided me.
I notice that your website spells Sheldon's wife's name as "Melinda." It is recorded as "Malinda" on her headstone. (As you'll see.)

Best Wishes,
Chuck Taylor
