I am doing a search on the Bigelow family for a friend of mine. I have a copy of a letter that was orally given by Lucy May Bigelow to her daughter Marla Mae Carter when Lucy was 87 yrs old in 1964. In the letter she tells of John Bigelow marrying Mary Warren and of their son Joshua's marriage to Elizabeth Flegg. Then there seems to be a generation missing and she says, "Your great great grandfather Henry Bigelow born in 1794 and your great great grandmother, Julia Levanway was born in 1806. They were descendants of some of the colonists Bigelow." Can you tell me how this Henry and Julia were related to John and Mary or if they were even related at all? Also, I did some extensive research on the LDS Site and was tracing the
Warren Line, before I found you and your site. Can you tell me if a William De Warren really married Gundried Princess Of England in abt 1077 and if her lineage goes back as far as 190??? You may not know the answers to all these questions, but I wanted to ask to be sure. I don't want to give my girlfriend alot of wrong information, and I am fairly new with the genealogy, but run into very nice people that are more than willing to help. Thank you for any information you can give me on these people.
It really gets confusing when you see so many dates for the same person. Patsy Gannon firstname.lastname@example.org

On your web page about Ewin Wallace Bigelow he married a Margaret Ann McGavran, daughter of Thomas and Margaret (Brown) McGavran. I have some info on her parents and family if you are interested. Do you have any McGavran info?
