Note from Jean:

As I get into updating various families for one reason or another, I find
discrepancies and questions. This one is about Joshua Bigelow, Jr. 161.
He is listed with a son Ebenezer as the THIRD child of this family. My
question is where did he come from? Is he actually a member of this
I think this is an error in the database. Maybe a confusion with Ebenezer Cheney, husband of Hannah 1612.....ROD
