From: "Susan B. Naumann" < email@example.com >
I am searching for the parents of my g. g. grandmother, Susan Bigelow (middle initial may have been
"E"). According to OH census records, she was born in 1824, Baldwinsville, NY.
She married William R. Rand (son of Daniel Rand whose father was
Daniel Rand of Harvard, MA).
William R. Rand's mother was Lois E. Tanner.
Children of William R. & Susan (Bigelow) Rand:
Alfred Thomas Rand, born March 12, 1844, Baldwinsville, NY (my g.
Alvira Rand, born about 1846, Baldwinsville, NY
Otis B. Rand, born about 1849, Baldwinsville, NY
Later children, prob. born in OH: Alice Y. Rand, Ellen Rand, Willard "Willis" Rand and Fred G. Rand
This family moved to OH where, in 1850, they were living in the
of William's parents, Daniel &
Lois Rand (according to the 1850 census of Vienna, Trumbull Co., OH, District 142).
Naturally, my first thought was that Susan Bigelow's father must
been Otis Bigelow of
Baldwinsville, NY. The fact that she named a son Otis served to bolster my theory. Unfortunately,
there seems to be no record of her birth.
Any help will be tremendously appreciated! Many thanks in
advance to anyone willing to offer
suggestions or supply information.

Otis may have been brother born in Portageville area not far from Leicester, Livingston co, NY where John Porter, another brother was born. Baldwinsville is further north near Rochester, NY

In Reply to: John & Statira Bigelow by: Judy Peterson
I am a descendent of this John and Statira Bigelow through their son John Porter. Would like to share info with you.
I am thrilled to hear from you, my grandmother was Matilda Bigelow. Matilda's first marriage was to Ransum Goldsmith, but I do not know what happened to him, they had 1 child Martin. Matilda married Perry Dewey July 4, 1854 in Columbus County Pennsylvania, they were living in Sherman NY and shortly after that the Dewey's and Bigelow's moved to Strawberry Point Iowa.
I can go on and on, but for now I just had to let you know I would love to share information. Judy
