Rod, I have sent off my membership dues & address etc. I have spent a great deal of time over the past few weeks on the Bigelow Web site & it is just wonderful. I especially like the history about the family members.  I think I have traced my family connections back correctly,perhaps you can confirm them for me. I start with John (1) like all else,then Samuel 2, Samuel 3,Cornelius 4, Paul 5, Cornelius 6, Hiram 7, Charles 8, Melissa 9, Caroline 10, Russell 11(my father) Enid12 (me), Charlene & Douglas 13 my children)and I now have 6 grandchildren gen. #14. I hope this is correct. I will send this information to you complete with births,marriage & death dates in the future if this is what you would like to continue the family lines. Many Thanks for this website I know the work it must entail. Your cousin  somewhat removed  Enid C.Othmer Harlow   Email      deharlow@globalserve.net
