3. Frank Vining BIGELOW-33035; Frank said his branch of the family went up to the state of Maine, perhaps because his great great great grandfather James Bigelow had been up there with a regiment of the Massachusetts Militia.  James was a Major and his job was to incept the British on their way down from Quebec to attack Fort Ticonderoga and then to NY.  Unfortunately, the "old boy" got lost and climbed up what is now known as Mount Bigelow in Maine to try to find out where the British were.  He took up the rear so they could not retreat back to Quebec and that was the end of the British Army of Invasion.  There is a small town nearby Bigelow Mountain with a population of about 300 (?).  Frank said he had to turn back to find the place because he had gone through the town and didn't know it. One of his family, according to Aunt "Carrie" took off for California and prospected for gold and struck it rich, perhaps he "put it in the Bigelow Bank of Ogden, Utah."  Frank's grandmother had told him of an "Aunt Bell" in Oakland CA. Some names listed in Mother Lothrop and Aunt Carrie's album were: Maxwell; Ford; Aretta Bell; Wing/ Foss; Ladd; Atwood; Chapman and Knowles."
His letter was to Laurel Bigelow Barklow, Rte. 2, Bx. 450, Ontario, Oregon. Source:  Charles C. Bigelow, brother, 7225 S.

 Hello Rod Bigelow,
This is Kristen Bigelow (1983).  I'm trying to research our family tree; I have ALOT of information, but I'm having great difficulty finding out which branch I'm directly related to.  Here is the information I have: My father is Matthew Karel Bigelow (1956) married to Janet Ann New (1957).  Matthew was born in Conneticut, but raised in VT.  My grandfather is John Bigelow (born
between 1934-1938) married to Elenor Gerber.  My Great grandfather is James Bigelow (1905) married to Pricilla Lindsley (1904).  My great grandfather's name is Sullivan Bigelow, I'm unsure of his d.o.b. and whom he married.  I need this information ASAP so I can complete a research project for American History (and also so I will have it on file for future generations).  Thank
you so much, ~Krissy
PS I am unsure of the spellings
