Hi my name is Kim Martin I'm from White Sands New Mexico and I am the Great Granddaughter of
George Custer Bigelow. I have been attempting to look up my family history for a while now and I came
across your website. It's really great I had know idea there were so many Bigelows out there. I also
noticed you really didn't have much information on my Grandpa Georges family. I know very little myself,
but I will be happy to share with you what I know. So far all I know is my grandpa was a railroader. He
married my GG Minnie Brown in ST. Louis Missouri in 1916. They had three Daughters Anita Bigelow,
Patrica Bigelow and Joy Bigelow. Anita died of Cancer in Dallas Texas in the 1960's. She was married
to a man with the last name Sparkman. They had a daughter named Peggy. Patrica is my grandmother.
She married George Harris (still up his family) in the 1940 in Carrizozo New Mexico where she still
lives. She had two daughters, Linda Sue (my mother) and Cynthia Ann. Joy is the baby. She married
Bill Gallagher in Carrizozo New Mexico where the live today. They had three children. Debbie, and
twins Lynn and Grey. My GG George and GG Minnie lived in Missouri, Oklahoma and finally settled in
New Mexico. They both wrote books about their lives which my family has. They eventually divorced
because GG George cheated on GG Minnie. He remarried to a woman named Ann apparently the
other woman. I always called her Grandma Ann. They lived in San Bernadino California until his Death
in 1980. I'm working on getting copies of both my Grandparents books so I can learn more about there
My e-mail address is jacobmartin@iwon.com

I saw your message for Emma Inez Bigelow and the oops message. I would like the information you have on her. I am related to Ebbin Monroe Berry who was married to Mary Gertrude Bigelow. My grandfather was John Sherman Berry. He was the brother of Ebbin. I have been writing and e-mailing to a Norma Brasher. Have you heard from her? Her
grandparents were Gert Bigelow and Ebb Berry. I would be happy to share any information with you.
Thank You,
Carolee Kellogg
