Several years ago I came across a small book written by Ella A Bigelow published in Boston in 1895. The cover title is "The Old Master". It is a list of 150 questions on The Old Masters to be used as a guide for a parlour game. There is a dedication to the Tuesday club, signed Ella A Bigelow, Hide and Seek Home, Marlboro Mass, May 1889. I have always been enchanted by this little book and thought it would be fun to find out about Ella and the Tuesday club. I found an Ella A Bigelow born in
Marlboro on an Internet listing said she married in 1868 so I thought it odd that she wouldn't have used her married name.
Today I found your amazing Bigelow web page and thought surely someone there can help me.
I look forward to anything you might be able to help me with. Thank you, Ella A. mentioned above was the wife of Edward Lambert 8 .

I recently obtained a 1st edition copy of Howe's book: Bigelow Family of America. The owners name was written on the inside cover: Emily Bigelow Ames. On page 173 she wrote in the margin identifying Gershom 6 as her grandfather. On the back flyleaf she identifies the following lineage:
1- John - Mary Warren
2- Sam'l - Mary Flagg
3- John - Jerusha Garfield
4- Gershom - Mary Howe -
5- Lieut Ivory - Sophia Banister (sic) "Ivory's sister Mary married Artemus Howe"
6- Gershom m Mary Howe "dau of Abraham & Lydia Howe ( Gershoms bro' was another Ivory who m Susannah Rice)"
7- Lambert m Emily Dickenson
Mary Bigelow b Nov 16-1865
her mother was Mary Augusta -
(born 1828 m - Yale Rice of Ohio -
died 1879 - res - Orwell? Ohio -
she was daughter of ~~~
Gershom B - mar - Eunice Wilder -
I have tried to copy exactly how it was written, with the notes
on the right margin, etc. Even the underline of Lambert. Not sure what
she means about Gershom 1st son above. Also the italics are her own words
as well, not my additions. Emily was still alive when the book was published
in 1890. She also made margin notes next to family members such as "dead",
but no dates. I obtained the book from a book dealer in England, where she
or a relative may have moved after 1890. To suppose more; it would not be
a great leap to suppose she remarried a man named Ames...
Enclosed in book was a small booklet by Ella. A. Bigelow, Marlboro, Mass. It was a souvenir booklet of "Hide and Go Seek Home". I posted the contents of this booklet at Souvenir...........ROD 08/01/2005
