Letter below:
Dear Mr. Bigelow:
     We have been working on our families genealogy for about two years now but just recently joined the Internet and found a wealth of information connected to the Bigelow family to which my wife's father is directly related.
     My wife's grandmother on her fathers side was Artie Elizabeth Bigelow born February 11, 1888 and died August 23, 1978. Artie's father was George W. Bigelow born May 18, 1855 and died February 26, 1928. George's father was Roswell Bigelow born 1830 and died February 21, 1909. Roswell's father was Asa Barney Bigelow born December 8, 1805 and died August 13, 1873 (1875) at Gratiot county, Michigan.
     This is one of the missing links we do not have information for is Asa Barney Bigelow. The fact sheet in Bigelow, Samuel (5) list Asa Barney as one of his children. This information is provided by Mrs. Carl Whitford (Dorothy Bigelow) of Ashley Michigan.
     Would you possibly have her mailing address so that we could contact her. It would be nice to find some information to complete this missing link. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated..Sincerely,
Wayne Kennedy  (e-mail)  wkennedy@stny.
