     Dear Rod:
 I saw your Bigelow website and I am wondering if you can help me.
 A relative of mine sent me a picture of what she thought were family members.  But, after studying it I feel that it might be a picture of a group that my gg aunt belonged to.  Here is what our family history says:
 "Rose Mary Adams belonged to a class of special instructions for young women in culture, mentally, physically and religiously.  Conducted by Sister Lucy Bigelow Young, wife of President Brigham Young and mother of Mabel Young Sanborn."
 It further says regarding Rose's future husband:
 "Ted was a member of two groups of singers (male choruses), one under the direction of Professor Evan Stephens and the other was directed by Mabel Young Sanborn and known as the "Big 15".
 If I emailed you a copy of the picture would you be able to identify Lucy Bigelow Young?  Do you know anything further about either of these groups?
 Thank you for your response.
