Over the past few days, several of you have contacted me about
the relationship of the Arthur Eugene Bigelow family to the Beemer
Family. Here is what I think I know:

McNiell Holmes (25 Apr 1950
Arland Eugene + Molly
(a) Richard (Malone) Bigelow by adoption of Tuscon Az. m Bea
(b) Charles,of Columbia SC. now deceased m Nancy
(c) Jon Bigelow of Dallas Tx. m Laurie (Townsand) Berry
They have two children from Laurie's first marriage

Molly lives in Tuscon Az.
Most of this is from the unpublished work of Patricia (Mrs. E. L.)
formerly of Jonesville Michigan The work was sent to me in 1976 and
not be the most current information. Also, the information I have
you was hand-written and I'm not sure of the 1970 date for Allie A.,
seems awfully late for a Bigelow male. The remainder of it is
memory and records, such as they are. My father (A. E. Bigelow was two
years younger than my mother (Louise M) so he was born in 1908 not
Patricia Bigelow had it; I assume the date is otherwise correct.
You three should get to know each other since you are all

Perhaps I spoke too soon. On looking at my data, I see that I have a
different birth date for Elizabeth Walker, than you have. My data came from
Worcester Town records, and shows;
"Eliza, d. of John and Mary, Dec. 23 1792".
Given the popularity of the name Eliza/Elizabeth, I could be mistaken in my
assumption that she is the one who m. Charles(6) Bigelow. The MA town records
are all I have to go by.
My Walker family, John (Jr) and Mary (Willard) left the town of Worcester c.
1800, and moved to Barre. John Walker died there in 1809, and is buried in
the Adams Cemetery. Mary Willard Walker remarried Lt Job Dexter.
But, just for the record, John Jr's father was Capt John(2)Walker, Loyalist,
and his father was Sgt William(1)Walker, who came with the Scotch-Irish to
Boston, c. 1719.
As I have said, I have interesting stories of this family and would
contact other descendants.
I was in the process of (finally) filling out Family Group Sheets on my
Walker line, but I'd better hold on Elizabeth until I can definitely identify
Julia Walker Ritterbush
Dear Mr. Bigelow,
Do you know how I might be able to locate Dr. Bigelow's book titled
