Hello Rod
I was admiring the very extensive Bigelow material you have assembled on your website. I am seeking information on a Joseph S.Bigelow, who was President of the House of Good Samaritan, 6 McLean St, Boston in 1900. (now integrated into Mass Gen Hospital in Blossom St, Boston).  He might be the Joseph Smith Bigelow of Boston and Cohasset who figures in your Bigelow list. My grandaunt Elizabeth Mongan was a patient and died there in July 30, 1925.
I wonder if you might have information on Joseph S. Bigelow's role and career as President of that now long gone, acute care institution.
Many thanks
Norman Mongan
