Note 2011:
< style="font-weight: bold;">From: Elena Love  <  >
<>I was wondering if you could help me locate some Bigelow family members: These are the children of one family, all born in Buckingham, Quebec:
Peter Bigelow and Paul Bigelow (twin brothers) born Jan. 29th, 1901
Marie Evelyn Bigelow (or Laforce?) born on June 19th, 1903
<>Marie Katheline Bigelow born Feb. 1, 1906. 
We think that their mother's name was Annie Laforce born April 3rd, 1861 (?) and her older sister's name was
Philomene Laforce born July 23, 1886; d ___1984.; m George French-Guiles ( b 30 Aug 1947; d _____)
I am doing this search for Marie Evelyn Bigelow's daughter, Dorothy Lavoie, born May 11, 1931. Marie Evelyn Bigelow married Dorothy's father: William Frederick Lavoie of Ottawa, Ontario.
Dorothy tells me that her mother was very secretive about her own family and her upbringing. Dorothy does not know who was her mother's (Marie Evelyn's) father. We are trying to locate him. Marie Evelyn told her daughter, Dorothy, that she was of Ojibwe tribe.
 <>If you can help us, we would really appreciate it.  <>Thank you very much for your time,  <>Elena Love.

I have done some research of my own and have concluded that Talbert Sr. Bigelow's father was Aylmer Bigelow.
So it goes something like this John1, Samuel (2), Samuel (3), Cornelius (4), Paul (5), Cornelius (6), Adam(7), Jeremiah 8, Aylmer 9, Talbert Sr. 10 , Talbert Jr. 11, Sharon (12) that's me, and Eric (13) this is my son.
