Charles Bigelow
From: Duane David      E-mail      wzbngpop@worldnet.att.net

   Charles Bigelow was born in Canada circa 1850. Conflicting information from cousins (I'm the youngest at 41) places the birth event in Quebec or Ottawa.  Information from my paternal grandmother's bible has Charles Bigelow married to Christobell Butler on May 27, 1878 in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
   Their children were Pearl (b. 26/6/1883), Gussie (my grandmother, b. 4/11/1885) and Leslie (b.30/6/1887 d. 22/9/1887).  Christobell (Butler) Bigelow died 29/5/1893 in Eau Claire from cancer and supposedly received some kind of medical care in Chicago.
   Charles then married (23/9/1896) Jennie Sterns (b. VT, 24/10/1871).  Their children were William Glen (b.19/6/1897 Eau Claire), Charles Vernon (b. 1/7/1899 Eau Claire), Alice Adeline (m. McNutt) (b. 2/2/1902 Towner, North Dakota), Margaret (m. Magnuson) and Emily.  My grandmother married in 1904 and homesteaded in North Dakota and Montana.  I'm
assuming that since she didn't record any birthdates in her bible for Margaret and Emily, the family may have moved away to
California by this time.  The only other information I have on Charles Bigelow is that he died in California (possibly Whittier) in
1920.  Grandma did visit and decorate his grave once when she was living in Los Angeles with my uncle in the 1970s.  I am most interested in finding Charles' birthdate and place, siblings, and obviously his parentage.  I have supplied you with the recorded birthdates that I have in the hope that it might help someone with a missing link.  I've had problems in my own research on this man, so he may be the obscure one for someone else also. I can supply much more information from my grandmother's generation on down if anyone has any interest.  She lived to be101 years old by the way, and was a goldmine of information.  I will be posting what I have for my own geneaology to the Internet in the very near future also.  I'm working on the pages now.

Jerome Hilton Bigelow

       My grandfather, Jerome Hilton Bigelow, recently passed away and I have been attempting to "dive into the past."  After his death, our family found a photograph of his mother, Grace Hillard Bigelow. The back of the picture made reference to "plaintiff's exhibit B" and included a case number.  After some further searching, we learned that his mother was killed in an accident around 1928-1929. My family is eager to learn more about this incident as well as the
rest of the family
     My family came from CT years ago and we know very little of the Bigelows there. When I was trying to look up who to contact in Hartford in regards to my great-grandmother I stumbled on to your page.
     Do you have any suggestions as to how to gather information in regards to that case?

Rio Piedras, P.R. 00926
E-Mail Address:  mbigelow7@hotmail.com

Can anyone help with information on the ancestors or descendants of Mr. Thomas Louis Bigelow Sr., my paternal grandfather.

According to my father's Certificate and Record of Birth No. 26066, date 6/29/27 and issued by the State of New York, my grandfather was 36 years old, was a U.S. Citizen, and lived at 540 Willoughly Ave. My father was born on 6/22/27 at the Brooklyn Hospital, Brooklyn, N.Y.

Based on this data, I can assume my grandfather was born sometime in 1891 and according to available Marriage Certificate he was married to my grandmother, Flora Hanna, on August 27, 1924 in Kings County, Brooklyn, N.Y.

The only other information I have is that possibly he had been previously married and had a daughter by the name of Margaret. This has never been confirmed, nor do we know if he ever re-married and had any other children.

Thanks for any leads on this subject.

George Amos Bigelow

Requesting parentage information on my grandfather, George Amos Bigelow, b 8/25/1876, possibly in Nova Scotia?, Canada. He married Elsie C. Hedstrom of Buffalo, Minnesota on, or a few days after 4/4/1905, probably in Buffalo, or less likely in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.

They lived in Minnesota for a few years, then moved to Libby, Montana in 1911. In Libby, George worked as a store clerk for a few years, then he worked as a lumber grader for J. Neils Lumber Company until his retirement. The J. Neils Co. was a Minnesota-based lumber company. Many lumberworkers had moved to Minnesota from Nova Scotia and Maine in the late 1800's. Some of these Minnesota lumber workers then moved to Libby from Minnesota.

George reportedly had a sister (name unknown) who settled in the Providence, Rhode Island area. She may have owned, or worked in a jewelry store, and she lived at least into the 1940's.

George died during a visit to Bend, Oregon on 7/9/1945, and he is buried in Libby, Montana. This is all I know.

If you have any information on George's parents, please help. Although I have no evidence that he ever lived in the following areas, I would still appreciate information regarding any Bigelows living in Digby County, Nova Scotia during the 1870's-1880's.

Debra (Deborah) BIGELOW b 1725, married about 1745 possibly Danbury CT. to Joel PRINDLE, died in Canada abt 1790 (as a Loyalist). The family resided in Skenesboro (Whitehall), NY, after the Seven Years War (French Indian War).

When I searched records in Danbury I was informed that they had been burned by the British in 1777, so I must resort, hopefully, with some success, to some family's genealogy.

Bigelow is a line I am stuck on and don't know how to make the break through. Thomas Bigelow b. abt 1820 (there is a large Thomas Bigelow family Nail Manufacturer in Montreal, Canada, but I have not been able to connect to it.

I spent several days in Montreal. When I left a local genealogist told me I should search 'greater' Montreal for another Thomas. We have tried. Does anyone know of another Thomas Bigelow in Canada in that time frame? Family information shows him of Montreal but born in Scotland.


My GGMother is Kate E. Biglow. She is the only Biglow that I have any real information on.

Below are my notes on her, just in case you do know something.


  1. Francis Elsworth MASON
  2. William Nathaniel MASON
  3. Murray Joseph MASON
INDIVIDUAL DATA Kate is listed on the 1900 Census and Newspaper acct . of her husband death as Catherine, but in Family bible and Applications of marriage and on tombstone it is Kate E. or Katie. Her signature was Kate on 2nd marriage application. In Family bible which it looks like Williamfilled out in several places it is Katie E. Bigelow and another place in Bible "Biglow".

I have a special interest in early ONTARIO BIGELOWS (c I 750-1900) and have started to compile them on computer. So far I have input some 500 names collected from the sources listed below. I would appreciate any further information members could share with me on Ontario Bigelows during that time period. I would be happy to share my information with anyone who cares to write.
