Dear Mr. Bigelow, 
There were two infant Bigelow burials in NYC in 1834 and 1836 that I am having a problem identifying.  The most likely parents seems to be Richard Bigelow and Martha Smith, but they don't quite fit in with all the other children born to this couple.  I'll attach an annotated vault listing.  If you ever have a chance, could you give it a look?  Some of the other families in the vault were connected to th American Tract Soc. in NYC, if this rings a bell. 
Thank you for any suggestions - Anne

Rod, I have a bit of information that may or may not be of interest to Anne
Brown who was looking for information about Richard and Martha Bigelow of NYC. 
I stumbled across a Richard and Martha Bigelow, originally from NYC, in the
course of researching my ancestors in Northwood, Worth County, Iowa.  Richard
and Martha turned out to be not related to me, so I'm afraid I didn't pay much
attention to them except where I got confused by records referring to "R.
Bigelow" where I couldn't be sure if they were talking about Richard or
Roswell, my GGG grandfather.  Richard and Martha had an adult son (sorry, forget
his name at the moment) also living in Northwood.  This would have been in the
1860-1890 time period.  I believe I've turned them up in the census at some
point in that time span, so perhaps it might help Anne to take a further look in
