I just located your article of Ezra 5 Bigelow and
I believe I am a direct decendant of him - information I received
from Pat Bigelow in 1984. Where things tend to be a little
gray is with one of his sons (either Enos or Joseph). Do you
have any additional information on them? In particular, I am
trying to determine which gentleman is the father of Alfred Bigelow
(1795-1860's). Alfred married Susanna Murlin and lived in
Again, just wanted to say hello and I appreciated your
information/article on Ezra.

This is me. I live in Friendswood,

their families? Thank you for all I have learned from your
site about the old folks. If you want everything I have on my
line like children, occupations, etc, I will be happy to share with
Thanks, Carolyn Bigelow Hiemer

FROM: Lee Ann Hager firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello Mr. Bigelow,
My name is Lee Ann Hager and I have been researching some of my family history. It seems our lines share a common thread as my great grandparents are Samuel David and Renia Jane Bigelow.
I had run into lots of difficulty with the Bigelow line as my grandmother, Cylvesta Bigelow Marcum, could not remember much about her grandparents other than their names. I was very excited to see your page and be able to contact some folks who left information.
I was curious. Some of the postings mentioned articles on certain Bigelow family members. I am guessing that the information included on the site is what is in the bound books. Sorry for my confusion.
I guess my only question at this point (other than to say a big THANKS!) is to ask if any more information has been discovered about Renia Jane Thompson? Likewise, I have information on Samuel and Renia's children both from my grandmother and from the 1930 US census (you have listed three children, but I'm not sure Lewis is one of them):
Sons: Samuel, Earl, Grover, Lawrence and daughters: Cylvesta, Oray, and Virginia.
My grandmother is Cylvesta. I'm wondering if your reference to Lewis Thompson could be Renia Jane's father as his name was Lewis Thompson and his mother was named Betty (information from my grandmother).
However, I do not have Betty's maiden name. Could this be they Betty Lee Bush you mentioned?
Again, any information is appreciated.
Lee Ann Hager
