 A fellow researcher has found and sent me a copy of Israel (#15923.7) Bigelow's will.  Israel is of the line of the 3 Isaac's.  She also found some biographical sketches of Israel and several of his sons and a son-in-law in a Madison Co History, copy 1883.  The biographical sketch mentions 3 not 2 wives for Israel:  (1) Eunice Kathron, (2) Miss Clippinger, and (3) Mary "Polly" Brown.  As you may recall, my great grandmother's notes spoke of a possible third wife.
The will mentions all living children and wife "Polly". The book contains some errors and further confuses the Custis/Custer question.  Please note the deathdate given for Dr. Daniel K Bigelow.

descendant note:
My name is Jana Dress.  My husband's (Timothy) mother (Joan) was a Bigelow.  I am trying to connect her branch to the information on the web page.  Someday (after I get it all together) I would like to send what I have gathered to you.  As soon as I figure out who her Great grandfather was, the connection will be made.  As you know stories often conflict with one another.  Right now I have two different names for this grandfather, however;  the great great grandfather could be Dr.
Eliphaz (7) Bigelow son of Dr. Israel (6) Bigelow.  From what I read on the web page there is nothing listed for these people.  I will gladly share what I have (when I figure it out).
Sincerely,   Jana Dress   E-mail
