Russel Bigelow Circuit Riding Preacher in Ohio 1793-1835
I am doing a research paper on Russel Bigelow (the Methodist Circuit-riding preacher 1793-1835).
1. Does anyone have access to any original documents written by Russel Bigelow or his family such as letters, sermons, Diaries, etc, or know where to find them?
2. I would appreciate any documents from the family about him or his wife Margaret Irwin Bigelow, and their family life or the children's growing up years.
3. Any family anectdotes about Russel Bigelow or where the family lived or what the family did would be also be greatly appreciated.
4. Also, do you know any Bigelow relatives who might have such documents in their possession, or who live in Columbus, Ohio and would be willing to look through the archives for original documents by Bigelow?
My Father Tim Janzen has compiled some information, but I would especially like to find some of his sermon outlines.
I also have a copy of his diary in my possession, as well as several different biographies about his life. I will share any information I have with anyone who is interested.
I would really appreciate any information you can give me about Russel Bigelow or his family.
