Sounds right, at least until I go back and look it up. I have seen a bit of a write up on it/him, some of it concerning his baptism, and much later connection with the pastor of the church. Not sure, off the top of my head, but he may have come over as well, but immigrated at different time/place.
The story had it that John Biglow, (sic), (the blacksmith), was a super strong individual and would take on all comers in feats of strength.
And I don't believe they have any "known" connection to today's Bigelows in England. Now, there is a good reason to try to convince them to get tested! I will have to use that reasoning on them!

What I have gives Wrentham, Suffolk, but no source for that information, so
I would consider it open to question.
