History of Madison county, OH:
     Dr. Isaac Bigelow, son of Dr. Israel Bigelow, was born August 25, 1797, near Balston Spa, Saratoga county, New York.  At the age of seventeen, in the year 1814, he came on foot from Center county, Pennsylvania, to make a payment for his father on a land purchase from his uncle, Isaac, the land being that where Plain City now stands.  Returning to Pennsylvania, he studied medicine with his father, Dr. Israel Bigelow, and in 1817 returned to Ohio and located on Trickle’s creek, in Champaign county.  He remained there one year, and in 1818 came to Madison county and laid out the town of Westminster, in Darby township.  This name was afterward changed to that of Pleasant Valley, but in 1872, after Doctor Bigelow’s death, the citizens petitioned their representative in the Legislature--William Morrow Beach--for an act to change the name to Plain City, which was done, the reason therefore having been the fact that there were four or five towns in Ohio of the name Pleasant Valley, and perishable merchandise, shipped by railroad, was often sent wrong, thus becoming a loss to the receiver before reaching the proper destination.  In about 1828, after his father had located for practice in this county, Dr. Isaac Bigelow went out of practice and became a general trader, diligent, perservering and active in all his enterprises.  He had kept a hotel and store on the southeast corner of Main and Chillicothe streets until after the year 1838, when he sold out to Samuel O. Wearington.  He built a large brick dwelling house on the northwest corner of the same streets, about the year 1842.  He was mayor of Pleasant Valley at one time, and was postmaster during Polk’s administration.  He married, July 17 1815, Polly Bigelow, daughter of Isaac and Polly Bigelow, who then lived where Plain City now stands.  He died in Pleasant Valley, April 10, 1857, of pneumonia.

My name is Victoria Ellis Givens.  I am the Great Great Granddaughter of Morris Bigelow Case.  Son of Philander B. Case
and Permelia Bigelow.
 My mother ,I guess she would be your cousin, is Carolyn Case Ellis.  Great Granddaughter of Morris Bigelow Case.  I was
just playing around on the internet to see what I would find if anything and came across your information.   I was so excited.  I have about six pages of names and 3 Obituaries.  Philander's is one of them.
 I am  just getting started.  I would like to continue my search with this side but this is all I have.
 My Great aunt Mildred Case Bruce has given this information to my mother.  She also has in her possession a Bigelow Bible.  She said it has very little in it and she can barely read the writing.

I came across the Bigelow website.  It is very interesting.  I do know for a fact one bit of information.  on the following entry  Polly Ann married Rev. Henry Hudson Ferris.  I know this because Henry is/was my gggrandfather.
15923.723     Polly Ann, b 25 Oct 1822; m 27 April 1845 Rev. Henry Hudson Perris; 7 children

Polly Ann died April 25, 1894 and Henry died March 15, 1875.  both are buried in Green Lawn Cemetery in Columbus Ohio.  You wouldn't happen to have any other information on them would you?
once again.  Great job.
