Subject: Louisa de Haven
Date: 09 Sept 2004
From: Jim Conway < Conway@ci.monterey.ca.us >
Mr. Bigelow,

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.

Hello, cousins.

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?

Subject: History of the Bigelow Family, 1880
Date: 12/26/2003
From:  Dale Turner < dt@daleturnerarchitect.com >  

Dear Rod Bigelow:
You've done a great website.  Thanks!
On your page on Timothy 6 BIGELOW, you say:  "Fred Biglow devotes a page to say that Turner was a hard drinker, and as landlord of the country tavern that Timothy Bigelow had founded, was frequendy a difficult individual."
I am VERY INTERESTED in having a copy or transcript of that page (whether by e-mail or fax) about Elisha Turner and Sally (Streeter-Bigelow) Turner.  I've looked all over for the reference you cited, Fred Biglow's [sic], History of the Bigelow Family, 1880, but cannot find it.  Do you have access to that book, or know someone who will do look-ups? 
By the way, both Elisha and Sally (Streeter-Bigelow) Turner went to McHenry County, IL.  They are found together there in the U.S. Census, 1860 Illinois, McHenry Co, p. 367: "2772, 2671, Elisha Turner, age 75, M, Farmer, 2200 RE,  300 Pers, CT;  Sally Turner, age 80, F, NH; Ellen Turner, age 19, F, VT."  Ellen Turner might be Elisha's granddaughter on the Turner side, dau. of Paschal Turner, although she is also listed with her parents that same census year, U.S. Census, 1860 Illinois, Bureau Co., Berlin Twp, P.O. Malden.
Elisha Turner died 22 May 1869 in Coral, McHenry, IL.  His will mentions Chaney Bigelow, who I believe would be Sally's grandson Chauncey James Bigelow [son of Timothy and Julia (Edwards) Bigelow; grandson of Timothy & Sally (Streeter) Bigelow] since he lived nearby in Union (or Seneca?), McHenry co, IL.
Please let me know if you can be of help finding Fred Biglow's [sic], History of the Bigelow Family, 1880.

Date: 05/24/2004

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".

Subject: Etchings
From: Beth Rice BRice5623@AOL.com
Date: 05/15/04
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.

Subject: DF Bigelow painting
From: Bill Hobbs    Vandy65@aol.com
Date: 12/15/2003
Dear Rod,

While searching the Internet for info on D. F. Bigelow I accessed your webpage. I bought a Bigelow oil painting outside of Richmond, Va. this weekend that came from an Antique dealers estate. The dealer had lived in Virginia Beach, Va. for 30 years after moving from Boston, Mass. The painting which measured 7" by 10" was in a gold frame that was inclosed in a glass covered shadow box. Someone though it was valuable and wanted to protect the surface which appears to be like new.
The painting is almost identical to the one titled River Scene on your webpage with the exception that all the trees are green, a few less rocks, and in my painting there are sailboats on the water. On the back of the stretcher in pencil are the words "Near Westport,New York." Westport is on the west shore of Lake Champlain so I think the mountains are the Green Mountains of Vermont and the water is actually Lake Champlain. Look like he painted more than one of the same setting. Thought you might be interested in all this info.

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.

Dear Sir,
I purchased a set of book ends at a moving sale a few years ago.  They are covered with leather and pictures of a horseshoe creat on the top and a horse on the bottom.   
On the bottom of one of them reads: Brown & Bigelow, Saint Paul, Minnesota, 55-379
One of them has a gold inscription on the front that reads: Charles A. Ward.
I was doing some research and found the following information regarding Charles Ward:(Inevitably, Herbert Bigelow met head-on with the U.S. government, which was having difficulty enforcing its 1913 income tax law. The law W2S being widely ignored, and in the post Teapot Dome era, in the early 1920,s, the federal government chose to prosecute a few selected businessmen from each geographic area. One of these was Herbert Bigelow, who expected to be fined, but instead was sentenced to three years in prison. He served the minimum eight months at Leavenworth penitentiary, and it is typical of the man that while he was in prison he spent his time and money ameliorating the lot of his fellow-prisoners and their families. In particular, he became interested in one Charles Ward.For many years after Bigelow's release from Leavenworth, the company followed the policy of employing ex-convicts whom they considered worth rehabilitating. Among these was Charles Ward who rose. first to general manager, and eventually company president after Bigelow's death.)I am trying to find out more information regarding Mr. Ward and possibly the value of the bookends.  They are in very good conditionCan you help.

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.

In my grandfather's obituary, it says he was "... affiliated with the
Bigelow Company for over 50 years". I know, from my half sister who
actually knew him, that it was Bigelow Manufacturing. I have seen him
referred to as a "secretary" but the wording always makes me thing that
it was more like what we would call a Vice President in charge of "X".

 Dear Mr. Bigelow,
How have you been?  I want to thank you for the opportunity to submit information about the descendants of Hiram
Rollin & Carolyn Bigelow (see: http://bigelowsociety.com/rod/mar79a53.htm ).  Just a few days ago,  a couple that live
in Theodore & Charlotte (Anderson) Rollins old house in Wellesley, MA. came across the Bigelow website & contacted
me! They gave me some useful information & hoped that I had old photos of their house. They're in the midst of
restoring it.
Now I have some new information about Leighton Rollins (copied from my website about Anderson ancestors &
descendants. It's http://home.comcast.net/~randers/Andersons.html )  and a typo that I discovered . It turns out Leighton
was married & had two step-children (see new info.below). The mistake is Theodore Rollins' year of death mentioned
 in the first sentence of  "The Technology Review--News from the Classes" that you posted for me- 1909 should be
