The Bigelow Family Genealogy, Volume II, page 48;
Howe,Bigelow Family of America.
See:  FORGE, Bigelow Society Quarterly, Apr 1997, Vol. 26, No. 2. While a young man (1886) the first Bigelow family reunion was held at Worcester, MA with Bigelows attending from all over the United States [see "The Original
Bigelow Family Reunions" same FORGE].  A permanent committee was formed and Gilman Bigelow Howe, already a recognized genealogist, wasthe logical choice to head the committee.  His position as an employee of the U. S.Census Bureau
in Washington, DC enabled him to communicate with Bigelows in every part of the country.  Between 1886 and 1889 he corresponded with cousins.  Bigelows of many towns helped search local records for births, deaths, marriages, old wills and land records.  References to these are found throughout the Bigelow genealogy.  Gilman had no children but at least one Bigelow was named "Gilman" as a result of correspondence with distant kin.  He died 1933. His widow, Lena Puplesse, had his files of correspondence and untraced Bigelows destroyed.  The library was inherited by a cousin, John A. Bigelow, who
corresponded with Laurel (Bigelow) Barkalow, the modern society's first President several times prior to his death.  The Bigelow genealogy was published by Charles Hamilton of Worcester in 1890.  It is no longer in print. I purchased a 1st edition on the internet............ROD

I do have some information on Gilman Bigelow Howe. He is a descendant of Abraham How of Marlborough, Mass. Gilman was born, 4-29-1850 in Marlborough. His father was Silas Howe and his mother was Ann Gilmore Snell.  If you
would like, I have his entire family history back to Abraham. It will take me some time to compile the data and send it to you.
Let me know
