Hi.  I am wondering how many of our Bigelow clan sport a nice
dimple in the chin?   My grandfather had one, my father and five of his
eight siblings had one, and I have one.  Is this a Bigelow trait?     My
greatgrandfather was Israel M. Bigelow, married to Mary Young.  My grandfather was
David Young Bigelow, married to Martha Matilda Orner.   I am curious to
know if there are other Bigelows with this delightful chin feature.

 I have been tracing my family tree; one of the
surnames on my fathers side is Colegrove.  Dewitt
Clinton Colegrove married a Clarcia Bigelow, possibly
in 1850.  I have also seen her name written as
Elarcia.  Could this be the Elvira Bigelow
(159B3.122)on your website?  I'll be glad to share any
information I have.
Thank you.

Hey Rod...was just checking out some old email queries you received and was taken aback about a
connect between a Charley Bigelow and Jesse James...since old Jesse spent a lot of time in
Mn..wondered if you had any info I could pass on to the GASP pages of our local thing...ie...gossip and
intrigue...I thought we were all as pure as the driven snow!   Maureen,  I am from the Gershom line down
thru Gannett and Woodward...

I think I have noticed a typo, you have: 14263.2     Betsy 6
BIGELOW, daughter of James 5 ( Joseph 4, Daniel 3, Daniel 2, John 1)
and Mary (GRAHAM ) BIGELOW was born 4 Oct 1787 at Spencer, Worcester
County, PA.
Think it is supposed to be MA.

 Rod, I saw the link to your homepage from the message boards
posted on Rootsweb.  I did not see this name in your index.  If you
find something about this family please let me know!
Mary Irene Bigelow married into my Robinson family in 1892.
She had a son from a previous marriage but he carried the surname
"Bigelow". I have not unraveled this mystery yet.  No children by the 2nd marriage.
Per her death record her mother's name was "Kier".  Per her
obit her father died at her birth (1865) or soon after in Chicago.  Her
mother moved to St. Louis and died there when Mary was 7 (about 1872).  She then
went to live with her uncle and aunt, Alex and Jennie George.  I don't
know whether this is paternal or maternal relatives. By 1880 Alex George was
dead.  Jennie was from NY.  I don't trust the birthplaces listed for
Irene's parents in this record because hers is wrong. She was born in IL not MS.

I believe these are the parents of Mary Irene Bigelow.  But
no idea yet how the aunt and uncle fit into the picture.

As you seem to be collecting the Bigelow surname I thought I
would send this family to you for your records and assistance.
Thank-you! Becky T.

 I recently discovered your website - where you mention
a lot about the Hamon Massey and other Barons of
Dunham in Cheshire... Yet, I could not tell how the
Masseys' family line is related to the Baguley? I am a
direct decendant of Hamon the IV thru his son William
older brother of Hamon the V. Any information that you
have would be useful- I also have information that
predates Hamon the I going back to the year 949..

On the subject of Herluin de Burgh - in my
research, his marriage to Frendsindis, only produced 2
children, both of whom were sons. While his marriage
to Arletta, produced 6 children , one of whom was the
unknown de Conteville who married William de la Ferte
Mace.  Emma tends to be the child that raises skeptism
on whether or not if she is a child of Herluin and
Arletta. Most of the 6 children, were sons, and only 2
were daughters. The sons did fight along their half
brother William the Conquerer.
  thanks again, Nichole

Hi Rod, enjoyed the website but didn't see any of the local and current Bigelows here in the
Willsboro/Essex/Keene Valley area in NYS.  My husband (age 82) is Robert Palmer Bigelow and his father
was Ralph Bigelow of Essex NY.  His brother, Herman Vincent Bigelow, died a short time ago this year at
age 79 and his younger brother, Donald Frank Bigelow is still alive at 75 and a sister, Phyllis Beth Bigelow
Bancroft, at age 72 in Apopka, Fla..  There are 11 nieces and nephews in this area and many greats.  How
does one get into the registry?.  Years ago (20) Bob and I belonged to the Bigelow Society and received
their newsletter but over the years it got lost in the shuffle.  Don't have any idea of how to do geneology.
Just thought we would make contact.

To whom it may concern,
I have an art print which is called "In Scottish Highlands" I believe was
printed by Brown & Bigelow and has an artist name and serial number for
authentication. The picture is of some cattle grazing next to a river and
mountain site. I want to know if this picture is of any value or a collectors
item. This picture shows well. Please reply and give me some sort of
direction, Thank You! Ignacio Gonzales

What a sensational website.  As a relatively newcomer to
using computers, I suppose I'm not the most authoritative critic, but your stuff on Robert Bigelow of
Jacksonville, FL and Arlington offered so much more than I ever knew that I'm really
at a loss for words.  So what if one link broke at the end of a long
chain of information-packed pages.  Will comment more when I
have more time.

From: "Lynn Gill" <lynn.gill@cox.net>
I intersect with the Bigelow family in the Howell and Gill lines, and can provide additional details (if you
want to go up or down those paths). Wilburforce Gill was an interesting guy, his father William Gill was one
of the first settlers of Northport in 1854, and the family became wealthy in mercantile and lumber
businesses. I unfortunately descend from William's younger brother Thomas (the poor Gills!). It's fun to
have a place name, Gill's Pier, in Leelanau County where I grew up. It was pronounced Gillspear, and I
didn't realize there was a Gill in their until I first saw it on a map!!
Two Howell bothers married two Gagnon brothers.  My grandmother was a Gagnon.

I would like to share with you some information that I've collected and verified.

Attached is a listing of the descendants of William Henry Bigelow.  You will see that he was married first to Mary Elizabeth Carpenter and then to Caroline "Carrie" Peck.  I have based all my searches on the information found in a Bigelow Family
Bible, and with just a few exceptions, the information has matched burial records, death certificates, gravestones etc.

Jennie Bigelow and Ival Percy Bigelow, from the first marriage, and Hugh Bigelow, from the second marriage have eluded me.
I have been unable to find their names anywhere except for the family bible.  Feel free
to use this information in any way you'd like, because as they say "you can take it to the bank."
Enjoy and Regards,

From: "Janet Taylor" <jantaync@bellsouth.net>
I am searching for information on a Palmer M Baker who married  Anna Havens Bigelow  10-29-1829 in
Ticonderoga, NY. She was born 10-22-1807 in Ticonderoga, NY Essex Cty. Her father was Samuel Bigelow
and mother Mara Howe.  I'm trying to find out who their children were and maybe make a connection with
my Baker's.  In some of my original notes from prior interviews with great uncles, there was a sketchy note
referring to one of our Baker's marrying a Bigelow.  My gg grandfather was John William Baker born on
Upper Jay, NY in 1836 died 1864 (civil war) I don't know anything about who his parents were or siblings or
I was referred to you by Jim Baker, Palmer is not his Baker but Anna Haven Bigelow is part of his family. I
also had written to the historial society in Ti, since Palmer Baker was in Ti 1830, 1840 and 1850. Thought
maybe 1850 census would list children. Have not heard back from them yet.
I would appreciate any information you may have.
Thank you,
Janet Baker Taylor
