From:  "Susan B. Naumann" <sbn.pilgrim.gen@snet.net>

             I am searching for the parents of my g. g. grandmother, Susan Bigelow (middle initial may have
       been "E").  According to OH census records, she was born in 1824, Baldwinsville, NY. She married
       William R. Rand (son of Daniel Rand whose father was Daniel Rand of Harvard, MA).William R.
       Rand's mother was Lois E. Tanner. Children of William R. & Susan (Bigelow) Rand: Alfred Thomas
       Rand, born March 12, 1844, Baldwinsville, NY (my g. grandfather)Alvira Rand, born about
       1846, Baldwinsville, NYOtis B. Rand, born about 1849, Baldwinsville, NY Later children, prob.
       born in OH: Alice Y. Rand, Ellen Rand, Willard "Willis" Rand and Fred G. Rand This family moved to
       OH where, in 1850, they were living in the home of William's parents, Daniel & Lois Rand (according
       to the 1850 census of Vienna, Trumbull Co., OH, District 142). Naturally, my first thought was that
       Susan Bigelow's father must have been Otis Bigelow of Baldwinsville, NY.  The fact that she
       named a son Otis served to bolster my theory.  Unfortunately, there seems to be no record of her
       birth. Any help will be tremendously appreciated!  Many thanks in advance to anyone willing to offer
       suggestions or supply information. Susan Bentley Naumann45 Apple Tree LaneWallingford, CT

Otis may have been brother born in Portageville area not far from Leicester, Livingston co,
     NY where John Porter, another brother was born. Baldwinsville is further north near
     Rochester, NY.
