Subject: Louisa de Haven
Date: 09 Sept 2004
From: Jim Conway < Conway@ci.monterey.ca.us >
In 1941 when Louisa de Haven died she willed to the City of Monterey
her art collection. After 18 years of legal wrangling, which you are
familiar with, the City acquired the art through a third party. Over the years the collection has become an important collection because of the
California Artist she had collected. While researching more about Louisa I found your web site which is most interesting. What an important
family in American History.
Although I have read the will, and much of the probate, along with the 1920 Readmission hearing before the House's Committee on Immigration
there is much I don't know. It makes me more interested in how she came to Monterey. It has the makingsof a great study and journal article.
We have several early pictures of Joseph Edwin de Haven, George A.
Bigelow and Abraham Bigelow with his midshipman son George. They were
part of Louisa's estate. What we don't have, and would like to have, is
a picture of Louisa or as the family called her Gussie. Do you know of
any pictures of her?

I reached your site and the Bigelow Society site and was much impressed. I'm going to be spending days and days tracking down family members. Thanks.
I can send you some information on Folger A. Bigelow as soon as I dig into my files and have a chance to xerox what I have. He was the son of Daniel Folger Bigelow, the artist, and was, I think, an even better artist than his father. Unfortunately, he died in a gun accident when he was 24 and that was that. We have several of his paintings, including a charming one of what we think was his house and dog, done when he was only 14.

This one is for Charles F. Bigelow, Dundee, Michigan, son of Chandler B. Bigelow and Mary Walker Fulton. I am still hunting for obits for Chandler.
I have transcribed the wills of Chandler's daughter Frances Amanda Bigelow Smith, and the wills of her grand-parents, Deacon Benjamin and Susannah Wright who mention Chandler B. as son-in-law. The will of Chandler B. himself should be here next week. I am still looking for the proof that Chandler was son of Otis Bigelow, Jr. and Harriet Butler (Henrietta). This a Mayflower line to John Howland and John Tilley. (The things one does for one's grandchildren!) I cannot find a record of the marriages, or the births of Chandler and Otis, Jr. Do you have any clues about what does exist?

From: Steve Aderholdt firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello. I recently saw your site on the Bigelow/Baguley family. I descend from this family,from Ellin Baguley who married John Leigh(Venables).
On your chart of the Descent of Baguley/Bigelow family in England (http://bigelowsociety.com/rod/baghist1.htm) you have Ellen as dau. of William,son of John,son of Ralph,son of Richard. On another part of your site (http://bigelowsociety.com/rod/baguley5.htm)you show this a bit differently. Could you confirm or deny the descent of Ellen as shown on the chart?
Also I see that you show Lucy/Lucia Corona as a dau. of Edw. II,not Ed.I as I would think by the dates,in one spot,but show Ed.I as her father in another. I gather you meant Ed. I in both areas.
I thought you'd be interested that Lucia also married Hugo de Corona (Jr.),who also married Anabell de Bamvill;Lucia had son Thos.de Corona with husb. Hugo de Corona (Jr.)(Ref.Visitation of Cheshire,1580,pedigree of "Pro Leigh de Lyme".

descendant of Samuel Hastings and Anna Bigelow; Samuel was a gr grandson of
Thomas and Margaret. Anna (as per Lydia Nelson (Hastings) Buckminster's "Hastings
Memorial...") was a d/o Capt. Joseph Bigelow
and Martha Brigham. Anna was b. 14 June, 1737 (Probably in Shrewsbury, MA).

Dear Rod-You may not know anything about these etchings-They were given to me
in 1957 by a Dr. in Wichita Kansas-He received them at Christmas time from a
funeral home. There are 4 etchings and at the top in very small printing is
Brown & Bigelow.St.Paul,Minn. Printed in U.S.A. It states inside the folder
that Lionel Barrymore authorized that they could be reproduced in Talio-Chrome.
There are 4 etchings all done on the island of Nantucket-which was Lionel's
favorite place to sketch. It states that he surprised everyone when they
discovered he had this other talent. Those originals are collectors's items. I don't
know much about etchings but they are lovely! But I am wondering if someone in
your family has some originals. It has taken me all this time to finally frame
them. It was ironic that the Dr. gave me these and cautioned me that they
were not junk(I was only 20 years old at the time)and the ironic part is that my
g-grandfather and 6 of his siblings were all born on that island.

They had two children and I am wondering if their children are still living and contactable. Would it be possible to place this email message on the website, adjacent to my email correspondence of July 2001?

I am trying to connect Nancy Maria Paul to her parents Alvah Paul and Nancy Hill Bigelow. In the two volumes of The Bigelow Family Genealogy it states her as their oldest child. She was born Oct. 30, 1830. Do you know where they got this information. Or where I can find some sources to prove this? Thank you for your time. Zay Harris

Thank you so much for theBigelow Society site. I was doing some family history research, put the name Ezra James Lee (my great grandfather) in a Google search, and out popped all of your wonderful family history information. Ezra's mother was Mary Bigelow. I have attached a picture of the Ezra Lee family, another with the names (photo back), as well as a list of descendents of Ezra James Lee. This later file includes mostly the descendents of Samuel W. Lee (my grandfather), although there are a few others that I know about.

Hi, just for a kick I typed in Anson Bigelow on the computer--what a surprise to find the listing.
My husband and I have lived in an old brick house outside of Ausable Forks for 23 years. We once
tried to trace back deeds at the county clerks, but found we got lost in the scribe of the day.
Recently, a previous (short term) owner mailed me all the deeds up till she bought the place. The
first mortgage deed was dated 1883 from Anson to Irad Bigelow, stating Anson had been a farmer and
lived on the farm "in his lifetime". Not sure if he built the house, or his father built the house
and what year. I was wondering if you had any information--the place originally had 167 acres.
(Old pictures of this house are greatly sought after if you know anyone who has some and may be
able to scan

Good Morning, Rod,
I am researching the descendants of George JESS, Sr. and Louise Catherine 'Lisette' PAYZANT. That of course brings me into the Weaver and Bigelow families...descendants from the first generation of seven children. On page 284-5, the descendants of Martha JESS and Benjamin WEAVER are listed. However, I need your help, please. The four children for Benjamin BIGELOW and Ruth COX in the Payzant-Jess-Juhan book are not the same as listed in http://bigelowsociety.com
If you can help me on this I would appreciate it. I am also researching the Payzant descendants as well.
At the Jess-Payzant family reunion at Port Williams 18-19-20 July 2003, I presented my research of the Jess family of North Kingstown, RI, Falmouth, NS, and Scott's Bay, NS. If you wish I can e-mail it to you. As my research of the Jess family progresses, I place a copy in the Kings County Museum. So far, I have submitted two editions. The third one may be ready by June 2004.
