From: Marilyn Funk   < davidmarilyn2@msn.com >
My apologies in not getting back to you promptly.  This is what is written in a book that my mother gave to me. And  hand written transcripts of an old bible that have just been handed down.  According to letters in 1968 "they were unsure of which family member had the bible".  So the documents are subjective, not "officical documents". There are different spellings in many places.
Also the name of Bigelow was spelled Bigalow all the way throughI have tried to do my best with the copies of "stuff" that I have been given. I can't say how accurate all of this is.  Of course some of it was passed down by word of mouth.  I am fairly new at all of this, so m organization is not the best.  Feel free to respond to me and I will try to fill in any blanks if possible.  I have not gone another generation down yet. So this is what I have.  Good Luck and I hope it adds to the cousins listing!! 

Oh.. FYI: My Grandmother is Bessie Maud Carey Bennett Skellie.
