Bigelow Family Genealogy Vol II , p 46;
Howe, Bigelow Family of America, pg 302-303; plate 176^.
I recently (2002) obtained a 1st edition 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.
She may have meant great-grandfather, which would make her the daughter of Edward Lambert ......ROD
On the back fly leaf 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

Artemus Howe ~~
son of Joseph & Ruth
Brigham Howe-
was Gershom 1st son
Lydia (Gershom's sister)
m - Isaac Maynard whose son
Amory was the father of the town Mayor
Notes Page 2:
2nd wife was Eunice Wilder & then                                                                         (Grandpa B-)
Gershom Bigelow had a large family their son^
Lambert   his^ sister Mary Augusta m Yale Rice of
Ohio - her daughter Mary was born 1865
& is cousin to Geo's father.

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 married 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 on this date...........ROD 07/28/2005

I live in Marlborough MA, bought my house from a Bigelow.  The house has been in the Bigelow family since they built it in the 1800's.  I found a bunch of stuff in the crawl space that I just donated to the Marlborough historical society.  But I still have access to it and have scanned in pictures of some of it too if you are interested.
I found your website exptremely helpful in researching the people associated with the stuff I found so I'd like to provide you with whatever info you would like.  It appears that the people who lived in this house started with Lambert (15182.47), then E.L. (15182.477), then George L. (could be Lambert George, 15182.4772 ??), then his son Edward F who is not on your site born 1911.
If you are interested, please respond so I will know this email address works, and I can forward more info as well as pictures.
Lambert (15182.47) and his brother, Levi, had a store here in Marlborough.  One of the things I found was their retailer's license for that store (attached).  I also found a shoe box full of estate lists for a variety of people (many family members).  If anyone is intereseted in viewing the estate listings of any Bigelows who died in the Marlborough area in the first half of 1800s, there's a possibility they're among the ones I found.  Sorry I can't provide a list, I didn't go through them, but they are at the Marlborough historical society now, available to the public.
I also found a tin picture of a Civil War soldier (attached) but I don't know who it is, I'm wondering if anyone has an idea of who this could be.  I also found a couple of letters from civil war soldiers in the 34th regt. but I don't know how their authors (Lewis Seymour and Bernard Scheitlin) relate to the family, maybe just friends.  I'd appreciate any info.
