New Note 2012:
     My family connection to the Bigelow family is through my mother’s grandfather: DeElbert L Parker (1849-1927). In exploring my families ancestry I have come to question several entries in the listing for Edwin Eugene Bigelow (partial listing below). I fully appreciate the amount of effort you and your family have invested to date but bring a few items to your attention that I suggest require further attention. I will openly share my sources at your request. My research is still very much in progress but is publically available through Ancestry.com\Parker-Lee NY.

Specifically my research indicates Isabelle Fidelia “Belle” Bigelow was the daughter of Dexter E and Francis Maria (Booth) Bigelow. She is thus Edwin Eugene’s sister, not his wife as listed below. She married DeElbert Parker 05 July 1867 in Richville, NY and is listed in the 1870 U.S. Census as living in Rossie, NY with two children, Gertrude and Annetta. At some point prior to 1878, Belle and DeElbert separated, and she then married Edwin F Miller (1862-1921). I have only very limited information on Belle and Annetta thereafter but do know from the US Census that Edwin and Belle were living in Newport News, VA in 1920. Upon Edwin’s death, Belle and DeElbert Parker again married and lived in Richville until his death. I also suggest that Francis Lorena (1884-1955) is the daughter of Edwin Miller and Belle, not Edwin E Bigelow as listed below, although I have not confirmed this. I do know she was a long term friend (half-sister) to Gertrude Parker (dau. Of DeElbert and Belle) and was caregiver to DeElbert in his final months. I hope you will independently confirm this information and either confirm or deny my suggestions. Note, however, I am currently visiting my daughter and have only limited internet access (or time) over the next couple of weeks. Best to you in your continued efforts.

I am looking for information on my grandmothers family. Her name was Lauretta Gertrude Bigelow. Daughter of Edwin Eugene Bigelow, son of Dexter E. Bigelow, son of Moses Foster Bigelow. I don't have any information on Moses only that he was born in Conway, MA. Looks like you do have more information to connect him to John Biglo and Mary Warren. I didn't know of any of Moses ancestors until I saw your information, then I looked up John Biglo 1616/17 on My Family Tree Maker CDs and found more information on him and Joshua 2, Joshua 3, and John 4, nothing for John 5 or Moses Foster 6. I do have a lot of information on descendants of Edwin Eugene Bigelow. Only thing I don't have is his death date; some time after 1907.
