From: Hal Beumer <>
    Thanks for the info. I had seen your web site before but had not seen that info on it. Julia was born about 1906 or 1908. She married Ira Lewis
Beckwith about 1828 possibly in Dorchester. They had 5 children. Frances -the oldest daughter - died several months after giving birth. Her son Louis
H. Martin was raised by his grandparents. About 2 years after Ira died, Julia married Augustus E. Bigelow 31 Mar 1867 in Providence, RI when both
were about 55 years old. I notice you had Julia married to her step son which was probably the result of sloppy writing on my part. Sorry.
I notice that you had Augustus dying in Phillipston, MA on 16 June 1885. Do you know whether Julia is buried with him? She is conspicuously absent from
our family plot Lot 78 - Grace Church Cemetery, Providence, RI.

From: Charlene Swan
 I am Charlene Swan and I am researching my husband lineage.  We have traced the family to a Robert Swan who was born in 1697/98     (No Knowledge  where)
who married Mary Crane April 30, 1724 in Milton, MA  Mary b 13 Jul 1699 Braintree, MA to Ebenezer and Mary (Tolman) Crane.  He died October 31, 1773
in Dedham, MA.  I have a copy of his land records and a copy of his will but I do not know who is parents are or where he came from.  A handwritten
manuscript donated to the NEHS by Mary Swan Jones 1901, says that Robert Swan came to Dorchester/Stoughton/Dedham, MA  at age twelve.  No one knows if he
came with others.  It is said that he was raised as a son of the house by Esquire Bigelow.  He was educated and married into a good family.  If anyone can tell me more information I would appreciate it.  Thank you

Robert Jr.      b 28 May 1725  d  12 Mar 1802   m Rachael Draper

Ebenezer     b 05 Apr 1728   d  30 Mar 1795  m Mary Hixson

Joseph             b 11 Mar1729    d  04 Mar 1816  m Mary Hunting

Benjamin             b 15 Apr1830    d  11 May 1735 m Sarah Howe

Mary                       b 30 Jun 1738  m Timothy French

The family lived in Dorchester, that changed to Stoughton that changed to Dedham, MA.
 Ebenezer is my husbands ancestor and he moved to Attleboro, MA

His children:
Ebenezer  b  14 Jan 1750 d  18 Mar 1820  m Tamasin Ballou

Ebenezer is my husbands ancestor and he moved to Richmond, NH where he was a Doctor.
Ebenezer's son Robert who married Elizabeth Saben is our family branch.  New Hampshire is where everyone stayed.
Thank you for your help.

Hello there, My name is Cynthia Bigelow and I am so shocked to find out that there are soo many of us out there! I was searching your page and I do not know much about my ancestors because the rumor about my heritage was that my grandfather, William Bigelow, was found along side the road while his mother was giving birth to him, and a Bigelow picked him up and his mother died! I am not sure of this guy's name I will have to ask my father, Freddie Bigelow, My
grandfather is dead or I would get this info from him. Well I would like to keep in touch with you, because I think it is so neat that we have the same last name. Sincerley,

Hi Rod
I sent a return message to you but I think my mail system trashed it as I never received a receipt. I'll try to some it up in a few sentences. As it turns out, my missing generation to the past is the same generation where your John Day-Sarah Loomis leaves off. Has anyone done research on their off spring or any of the others of John Day-Grace Spencer other than what is listed on
your site? My G-G-G-G Grandfather is listed as John Day Jr. on the 1800 Federal Census of Delaware County NY. The county was primarily settled by the people of the Colchester-New London CT area in the early 1790's. My John Day
settled at a place called Dickinson City (later named Cannonsville) in 1787. It's near the town of Colchester NY. ??? Any idea's? If the families can be connected it would bring your DAY lineage up to date and take mine back to1604.
Let me know what you think.
Date: 1 May 99 04:25:08 America/Fort_Wayne
Your page is looking great. I like the bulletin board but I don't understand your note that say's that you don't believe that Grace Spencer (wife of John Day II) was Editha's mother. Was there somehting you discovered while at Salt Lake that led you to believe there was a mistake. I know I've come across John Day II who had a son John Day III. John Day III was married to a Sarah Welles. They had a son, John Day IV who had married Sarah Loomis.
Have you ever corresponded with John Ladwig from Henrietta NY. His wife is related to the Day's and he recently refrenced me to a book of geneolgy by a Geo. Day in 1848. Any of this sound familiar? It would appear that my John Day
Sr. is the same as his John Day IV whereas it should be John Day V.

From: Clarice Thompson <  >
Organization: Michign State University

As part of a series on local East Lansing MI pioneers, I did a story on the Horace Bigelow (15198.82) family. Using information from the Bigelow web site I said his wife's name was Helen Sturgis. I have been corrected that the name on her gravestone and in official papers is Almira. They had a daughter Helen M. Bigelow (15198.821). In rechecking the web
site I find that her mother was Ann Jenette (Fitch) Bigelow. Information from the site says that Horace and Helen were married in 1845 and Helen M. was born in 1846. I know that the mother was a Sturgis because the two families (Bigelows and Sturgises) moved to what is now East Lansing and settled neighboring farms. There seems to be something wrong about
the Ann Jenette Fitch information. The Helen or Almira information may have a problem, although Helen might have been a middle name.

    Hello Rod:
Some of the Beecher, Foote, Olmsted families lived in the Chicago area.  My interest in the families, is their relationship to Lake Forest, IL., a suburb of Chicago.  In researching I have found some of the families attended Lake Forest University, and taught in our schools.  Charles and Abbie Bigelow Foote  children were born in Chicago, did they continue to live here?
Also, what were the names of the wives of Timothy, James, John, Timothy, Jonathan.  I'm looking for connections to families here from the East.  Is the Bigelow Society on the internet?  I appreciate the title of the Bigelow Genealogy, hopefully
I will be able to locate one by inter-loan library.
If I can be of any assistance please e-mail.  Look forward to your reply.

Subject: Baguley Hall
Date: Thu, 18 Mar 1999 09:07:13 PST
From: "Chris Collins" <  >
   Dear Rod
        Although I am neither a Bigelow nor a Baguley, I grew up in Baguley and have just found your Baguley Hall
        page by chance. I noticed a few queries about Baguley and the Hall itself; whether it was open to the public -
        even whether it had burned down a few years ago! I don't know whether what I have to tell you is new to you,
        or even useful, but I was impressed with the amount of work that had gone into your site and since I have
        nothing else to do at the moment, I thought I'd drop you a line.
        Baguley is not a small town outside of Manchester - it is a small ward of the city and part of a much larger
        suburb called Wythenshawe (pron. Withinshaw - Baguley is pronounced Baggly, locally).
        The Hall is certainly standing (I pass it every time I visit my sister, who still lives close by) and seems to be in
        good repair. There have been local government plans to renovate it for as long as I can remember, and
        although much work has certainly been done on the building and the small grounds it still lies within, I don't
        think it has actually been opened to the public as yet (I've never seen it open, anyway).
        The mention of a fire was also intriguing. I have no knowledge of anything serious of this nature, but the Hall
        has always suffered from minor vandalism - perhaps this was the root of this particular story. It certainly hasn't
        burned down, anyway.
        For any of your members who may wish to visit in the future, it may be possible to gain access to the Hall by
        arrangement. The best point of contact would be Manchester Town Hall, the seat of local government for the
        city. Try addressing a letter to the Chair of the Council, Manchester City Council, Manchester Town Hall, St
        Anne's Square, Manchester. (I don't think they have a Lord Mayor any more, and I seem to remember
        reading that they aren't very good at answering e-mails...)
        A point of warning for any visitors, though - although you will find many friendly people in that area, it does not
        enjoy the best of reputations. Dress down is the best advice I could offer.
        The reference to Old Baguley and New Baguley I found especially curious - I was born in 1959 and lived in
        that immediate area for the next twenty years or so, and have never heard anyone refer to either Old or New -
        just Baguley.
        I think the lack of attention paid to the Hall in the past was mainly due to its close proximity to Wythenshawe
        Hall, the seat of the Simon family, situated in the centre of a large park only a five-minute walk away from
        Baguley Hall. Wythenshawe Hall has, in the past, enjoyed more in the way of public money, which may have
        something to do with the fact that it was a bequest to the people of Manchester from the last Lord Simon.
        Perhaps the city council was under more of an obligation to maintain Wythenshawe Park and Hall - although
        local government cutbacks of the last twenty years has meant that less money could be directed there, even.
        Anyway, that's about all I can dredge from my mind on the topic for now - hope you found it of interest. I live
        in London now but, as I said, see Baguley Hall roughly once a month when I visit my family. If there's anything
        else you wish to know, mail me back and I'll see what I can do. I think you've excited my curiosity...
        And, once again, well done with the website - v. impressive.

I have cemetery record from Honesdale, also went to cemetery. Tiffany, Sally - wife of John Tiffany, d. Sept. 2, 1848 ae 63 yrs & 5 mos.
My ggg-grandmother is Sally Tiffany daughter of these two.  She had son in 1842 - Thomas Oliver born in Starrucca.  Hope to find proof soon. She married A. Wright and moved to Bramwell, WV.  She had daughter (stepdaughter?) Alice.  Alice married Israel Rouse Myers.  I have letter from her to brother Thomas Oliver Tiffany written sometime in the1870's. I have letter written by Thomas to his Uncle Shel - John Sheldon Tiffany.  Thomas was at Morris Island, SC during the war when he wrote
this letter.  Thomas had daughter Alzada Mae. (wife was Alzada Emeline Harding), son Winfield (2nd wife ran off), Jennie, Charles and Raymond (wife Ellen Webb).
Winfield went to live with John Sheldon Tiffany until Thomas remarried. Alzada lived with the Fosters in Burnwood (haven't found out why yet or how they are related).  John Sheldon had son John Winfield.  Winfield had son according to my Uncle named Elberton and daughter Ferne. Winfield was said to have visited Alzada in Carbondale after she married
and had children.
I do not have a lot of primary evidence as of yet.  Have photos of Alzada after she married.  Pictures of house and family in Burnwood taken when Alzada was grown. Letters that I mentioned.  Went to cemetery.  Lots of census information. 1850 census shows Thomas living with John and Minerva Tiffany.  Sally was living with Nathan and Damelia Kennedy. So was infant Alice E. Wright. (Kennedy name was same as Addison Harding's second wife[father of Alzada] ) I have no idea who A.
Wright was.
By the way I have Jane Graham's maiden name as Thompson (from Beers). Denise

This couple was living in Mercer (now Lawrence) County Pennsylvania. The cabin Catherine was living in in 1860 still stands near New Castle Pa. Between 1790 and 1830. There were a very small number of Bigelows living in Pennsylvania. .

        I have been doing Underground Railroad Research for about two months now, looking for connections to Orange County New York, and have a question about John Bigelow you may be able to help me with. William Still's Underground Railroad, Ebony Classics 1970 from the original 1871, tells a story, beginning page 174, of a John Bigelow attorney with offices at 7th and E NW Washington, who in 1854 arranged the departure of a slave girl, Anna Maira Weems, departing from in front of
the White House to Philadelphia and hence to Mr. Lewis Tappan on Pearl Street in New York City . Is this the John of Union (1817-1911).? Regards,

 Your web page is amazing and I can apreciate all the work that went into it.  What we are looking for is if any of Lawrence (1692A.4) children's were buried in the cementary in St Andrew's cemetery Buckingham .  My Dad would like to know, as he is doing a history of the cemetery. (I think we also related somehow)   Anything would be of help.
Thanks a Million!

My grandmother is going to be 101 in April and remembers "Nick" Bigelow from North Wolcott.Her memory is untarnished and tasks a lot about my g-g-grandfather,Charles Richards,and his best friend Nicholas Bigelow.On some of my g-g grandfather's CW pension papers,Mr. Bigelow went with to various meetings about the pension and signed papers as a witness.I have gone up to the old homestead twice this past year and know approximately where the Bigelows lived.(On the lake)(Have a distant picture of their homestead in late 1800's-earlt 1900's)They both were in the the Civil War, different regiments.Often talked about the war, which the women and children were not able to share in. Believe this "Nick" may have named his oldest son after my g-g grandfather,one William Charles Bigelow. Be more than glad to share e-mail or by
phone. I have MS,so as the day progresses,I tend to get worse.A.M. is much better and I am an early riser. My NO. is

Grandma would get such a kick to see one if it were available.He will be in my book, if I ever get it done.Is basically about my g-g greatfather and my best friend who was killed in Vietnam on Mothers Day, May 12,1968.

     I am looking for information on my Bigelow line.  The name is Gershom Bigelow his daughter, married John Weekes.  The other Bigelow is Thomas Bigelow, his daughter married Jonathan Weekes.  Do you have any information on Gershom or
Thomas?  I would like to know who their parents were.
I sent you an e-mail this morning before I finished search your web page.  I found the information I needed on Thankful Bigelow.  I also found Gershom Bigelow but, our info is different.  I am new to genealogy and I understand that I will run
into this often.  In our Weekes bible it shows John Weekes married Mary Bigelow 5/19/1762 Mary was the daughter of Gershom Bigelow and Mary Howe.  Any ideas??? I'm at a loss do I record both sets of information? (You show Mary Bigelow married Artemas Howe).
Thank You,

Subject: Origins of Warren name

From: "A.R.Warren" <>
I came across your 9 page account of Warrens last night.  I wonder whether you have thought about the origins of the name ?
The contribution which follows may be of interest.   It is highly dubious that any of my relationships link to your origins in Nayland:  general patterns of transport and migration in 1585 militate against such a presumption across a distance of some 400 miles. However,I am only just starting on this venture and I may well be proved wrong.

Subject: Origins of Warren name

The name "Warren"  as an English language surname seems to have originated following the Norman conquest in 1066.
Baron Guy de Varrenes (or de Warena) was part of the conquering force and was married to Gudrun, sister of Guillaume, Duke of Normandy  (aka William the Conqueror).  Anglicisation both of Varrennes and de Warena lead to Warren. So, too, does the method of raising rabbits for food as introduced by the Normans, in stone enclosures which became known as "warrens".
Thus, warrens as historical structures and place names are common in SW England, notably on Dartmoor.
The trade or profession of managing warrens became a distinct surname by the addition of "er" ( as in Fowler, Carpenter etc.) in the form of Warrener or Warrender.
Surnames did not become common for several hundreds of years after the Norman Conquest,  broadly between 1370 and 1450.  Passage of time and the general levels of illiteracy led to variations of spelling -  even within a single document, the same name might be spelled in three different ways.
Possession of the surname Warren does not, of course, provide evidence of some direct link back to ancestry in Normandy.  Serfs and villeins might well have adopted the surname of their master.  Others, as later immigrants to Britain, adopted such Anglicised identities as suited their purpose and integration into the community. The surname Warren seems particularly common in the West of England. As an aside, the writer spent many years working in France or with French employees.  To this day, they remain convinced that my surname was Varrene  - a fine example of how sounds are twisted to meet the linguistic expectations of the people concerned ! I do not pretend that this brief note is fully researched and I am entirely happy for other Warrens to challenge and improve a note which is intended to promote dialogue.

I'm so sorry it took me so long to get back to you regarding your search for my Bigelow clan!!...I am totally amazed!!!...I can't thank you enough for finally giving me a sense of closure on who made up my roots!!...I had only bits and pieces of names to go by and you have solved the puzzle!...It was Henry Clifton that I had been missing!...Margaret Bigelow (his wife) was my greatgrand mother, but there was never any documents showing who her husband was??...strange? but that's how the information was kept by the family! My grandmother Lucielle McLaughlin (Bigelow)...was married to Lloyd McLaughlin and bore my father Darrell Fulton, who passed away in 1983 from a short illness, and is buried here in Sarnia, Ontario.
Again! Rod....thank you ever so much!!...

 Hello, allow me to introduce myself.  My name is Lisa Beth Christiansen.
(John1,Samuel 2, Thomas 3,Abraham 4, Samuel 5, Andrew Craige 6, Samuel Smith 7, Abraham Lincoln 8, Dee Anne Bigelow-Beglinger 9, Elizabeth Jane Beglinger-Von Suskil 10, June A. Von Suskil-Smiraldi 11, Lisa Beth Bigelow
Smiraldi-Christiansen 12).
It is with great sadness that I announce the passing on of my Grandmother, Elizabeth Jane Von Suskil (10), at age 81.  She passed on suddenly, on October 5th 1998, while residing with me, in Montague, NJ. She is survived by her daughter, June A Smiraldi of Vernon, NJ, Howard Von Suskil, five Grandchildren, Lisa Beth Christiansen of Montague, NJ, Richard Smiraldi of New York City, NY, Marc Smiraldi of Vernon, NJ, Jennifer Von Suskil, and Drew Von Suskil of Butler, NJ, and Great- Grandchildren, David and Andrew Christiansen of Montague, NJ.
"Betty" was born in Superior, Wisconsin, on December 2, 1916.  After the death of her mother, Dee Anne Beglinger, she left her home, at the age of sixteen, to graduate high school, and continue on in nursing school, to become a nurse.
She worked as an R.N. until she was 77 years old, and forced to retire.Upon retirement, she moved in with her granddaughter, Lisa Christiansen (me) and her family, where she could watch her great-grandons grow up. My Grandmother was very proud of her Bigelow heritage, and it is spoken of quite a bit at a website we have created in her honor.  She was very proud of her mother, Dee Anne Bigelow-Beglinger.(see below)
Please feel free to quote anything in my websites for inclusion :-) in the Forge.  Also, a photo of Dee Anne Bigelow is attached (my Grandmother's mother) (Elizabeth Jane VonSuskil) (Dee Anne Bigelow, and our family history concerning Bigelows from our branch).
Sincerely, Lisa Beth Christiansen
