 Greetings,  I  have been in contact with Joan Bigelow through the years and am a descendant from the Himely family my name is Peter Sigismund Brune and I live in suburban Kansas City.  This past May I travelled to France and spent time with Jerome Himely exploring our common roots.  I remember spending time with Bushnell Bigelow at his farm with my father Percy Julius Brune.  I marvel at your website.

Subject: Bigelow - Kent- Ben Franklin
Date: Fri, 1 Feb 2002 20:29:00 EST
From: BKwendy@aol.com
   I thought  you might find this interesting.  You posted a John Bigelow
married to a Kent. Daughter of Helmer B. Kent.  I think.
I have Kents' buried in Bigelow Cemetery in Madison Co. Ohio.  I  have been
told by my husband's Uncle that the Kents came from Vt.  I know that they
were in VA and NJ and then Ohio.  I have a feeling they started in Mass. and
then Vt and Penn.  The Revolutionary war would have brought our James to VA.
What I have found interesting is that I found a Bailey buried in the cemetery
was from a family that were the next door neighbor of Benjamin Franklin in
Penn.  Also, Ben Franklin studied the Indians in VA and was in NJ.  Benjamin
Kent was  a very good friend of Ben Franklin.  John Bigelow knew Ben Franklin
according to Ben's bio.  This is all starting to come together.  I have also
seen connections from Bigelow Cemetery and Samuel G. Kent and Desire Cushman
whom were in Mass.  Their daughter, Hannah Kent Gray's Bible records were
found in Union Co. Ohio.  I looked at them and compared to the relatives of
the people of the Bigelow Cemetery in Madison Co. Ohio and found that many
people in the cemetery are related to the people from her Hannah's records.
Benjamin Kent had a son Benjamin that they lost track of .  I  have wondered
if our James descend from this Benjamin.  This is where my search is.
We had a Lucinda Kent whom married E.W.Barlow.  E.W. Barlow was first married
to a Bigelow.  These records are all in the Plain City Library.  You can
access some Union Co. Records by going to heritagepursuit.com. This will give
you abt. 11 Ohio Couties.  Just scroll half way down the page and press
search.  A search engine will pop up.

Our line:
James from Hampshire Co. Va
Silas born June 9,1782 in NJ d. Oh and m. Olive West b. Conn d. Iowa
Hiram Kent b. Oh. m. Miranda Harrington b. Vermont    both died in Ohio

Dear Dr. Bigelow;
I have grown up believing my dad was one of the first people in Canada to have heart surgery.  Having read an article written about you I realize that that cannot be quite accurate as he had his surgery in 1964 or 65?  Perhaps he was one of the first to have a certain
procedure?  His name was John Craig and he lived in Sault St. Marie.  He had six children and was in his mid fourties.  He died within a few months of the operation.  Although I am sure you have met thousands if not millions of heart patients and have been involved in many "firsts", I included these bits about him in case it can help you remember him.
I apologize for my lack of knowledge about my own father's information but I was very young when he died and have always thought that I kinda sorta knew what happened to him.  Now, I would be interested in really knowing.
Thank-you for your time,
Maggie Craig

From: Mike Weaver   <weaverson@email.msn.com>
I was very excited when I came across the web site about Captain John
Bigelow.  I have recently finished my first historic novel about another Civil War hero,
General Albert G, Jenkins, and am trying to decide who will be the focus of
my next book.  My wife tells me that it has to be a Yankee, and it turns out
that John Bigelow is an ancestor of hers.  A family geneologist did a family
tree that puts her (Mary Louise Bigelow) as a third cousin, twice removed if
I remember correctly.
I am looking for any information about John Bigelow that I might read to
understand and "get into" his character such as childhood and military
anecdotes and records, school records and sibling information.  It would be
good to learn more about his wife, Julia Gardner (?is that the right name?)
and his step-daughter (Edna?).  Through a local crony of mine, I have copies
of several military papers and pension records.  My crony has the saddle he
used in Gettysburg and several other of his implements of battle.
I would love to hear from you and discuss this chap in more detail.  My
email address is weaverson@msn.com and my phone number is (717) 731-0577.  I
live in Camp Hill, PA which is a suburb of Harrisburg, the state capital.
I look forward to hearing from you.  Mike Weaver

I'm responding to your two e-mails, re: Capt. John Bigelow, 9th Battery,
Massachusetts Volunteer Light Artillery, in which responded to the inquiries
you received from Andrew K. and Mike W.
The above John has an entry in Volume II, Page 176, of The Bigelow Family
Genealogy. He was the third son of Samuel (7) Bigelow (16163.27) and the entry
is as follows:

(16163.273) John, b. 04 Feb 1841; d 13 Sept. 1917 Hennean co. (Minneapolis) MN;
m. 05 Dec. 1888, Julia Barber; no children; he was a senior at Harvard when he
enlisted and served valiantly during the Civil War advancing from First Lieut.
to Brevet Major in 2nd Battery, Light Artillery, Mass. volunteers and 9th
Battery, Mass. Vols.; badly wounded at the battle of Malvern Hill on 01 July
1862 and at Gettysburg 02 July 1863; a machinery designer and "inventor";
resided in Philadelphia, PA.
Sources: Gilman Bigelow Howe, Bigelow Family of America; records of Bigelow
Society historian/genealogist; National Archives and MN division of vital
statistics for John.
After the war he wrote a personal account of his participation in a battle at
Gettysburg. This account is in a booklet titled "The Peach Orchard, Gettysburg,
July 2, 1863", published in 1910 (62 pages) and reprinted in 1987 (see below).
The two attachments are from the title page and introduction page of the

I am looking for parental info on Minde/Minda Bigelow:

I haven't been able to track down anything else on Minde/Minda.
"Census date shows that Reuben and Minde Proctor lived in Merrimack Town until sometime between 1795 and
1800, at which time they moved to Hartford, Me. There may have been other children born earlier than what we have
listed here. Reuben was Constable for Merrimack Town for many years before they moved."

Dear Mr. Bigelow,
    I was hoping you could steer me in the right direction.  I have been
trying to research my 4th great-grandmother and her father in hopes of
finding out who they were.   Her name was Margery (Bigelow) Houghton and her
father was named Joshua Bigelow.  I was intrigued by your web site and
especially entries for 16C4     Joshua 4 BIGELOW and  16C47.        Margery,
b 21 Jun 1781.   Do you have any ideas as to how I could find out if this
Margery married a Ebenezer Houghton born in 1779. What I have been able to
find out so far is as follows:

were Benjamin and Hannah (Yeoman) Phinney; he was born about the year 1776,
his wife one year later.  To them were born nine children, eight of the
number attained to man's estate.  The family were all born in Connecticut,
but removed to Oneida Co., N. Y., when L. D. was a lad of tender age. .....
Oct. 20, 1831, he was married to his present companion, whose place of
nativity was Maryland Township, Otsego Co., N.Y., time of birth April 15,
1809; her parents were Ebenezer and Margery (Bigelow) Houghton; to them were
born eleven children, but five lived to be grown.  After the marriage of Mr.
And Mrs. Phinney, they remained on the farm of his father until 1856, when
he emigrated to this State, settling at La Fayette Center, where he has
since been a constant resident. .....  Mrs. Phinney has two sisters, Emily,
Mrs. Seth P. Duncan, in Oswego, N.Y., and Rebecca, Mrs. Isaac Blair, of this
township; her parents died in this township, her father in 1857, mother in

From "The History of Medina Co. and Ohio" 1881-

"ISAAC BLAIR, retired farmer; P.O. Chatham; is one of the early settlers of
this township and was born Feb. 4, 1805, in Madison Township, Madison Co.,
N.Y.  His parents, David and Eunice Blair, were natives of
Massachusetts, . ... ..  Jan. 1, 1829, he was united in marriage to Louisa
Phinney, who was born in Oneida Co., N.Y.; daughter of Benjamin Phinney,
whose wife was a Yeoman.  ......  In 1834, Mr. Blair came West to this
county, and purchased 70 acres of unimproved land, at $4 per acre.  He
erected a log cabin on the same, and returned to New York to bring his
family out, but, in consequence of death of his wife, his plans were
entirely changed.  He sent his brother out, who occupied the premises until
1837, when he moved out, bringing with him his present wife, who is Rebecca
Houghton, a native of Worcester, N.Y. , and was born Jan. 11, 1804; a
daughter of Ebenezer and Margery (Bigelow) Houghton.  Ebenezer was a son of
Ebenezer.  The father of Margery was named Joshua."

  Hi my name is Kim Martin I'm from White Sands New Mexico and I am the Great Granddaughter of George Custer
Bigelow. I have been attempting to look up my family history for a while now and I came across your website. It's
really great I had no idea there were so many Bigelows out there. I also noticed you really didn't have much
information on my Grandpa George's family. I know very little myself, but I will be happy to share with you what I know.
So far all I know is my grandpa was a railroader. He married my GG Minnie Brown in ST. Louis Missouri in 1916.
They had three Daughters Anita Bigelow, Patrica Bigelow and Joy Bigelow. Anita died of Cancer in Dallas Texas in
the 1960's. She was married to a man with the last name Sparkman. They had a daughter named Peggy. Patrica is
my grandmother. She married George Harris (still up his family) in the 1940 in Carrizozo New Mexico where she still
lives. She had two daughters, Linda Sue (my mother) and Cynthia Ann. Joy is the baby. She married Bill Gallagher
in Carrizozo New Mexico where the live today. They had three children. Debbie, and twins Lynn and Grey. My GG
George and GG Minnie lived in Missouri, Oklahoma and finally settled in New Mexico. They both wrote books about
their lives which my family has. They eventually divorced because GG George cheated on GG Minnie. He remarried
to a woman named Ann apparently the other woman. I always called her Grandma Ann. They lived in San Bernadino
California until his Death in 1980. I'm working on getting copies of both my Grandparents books so I can learn more
about there lives.

I believe you have a bad link.  I was looking at the children of Gideon
Bigelow on:

and I tried to click on
1592C.265t    Clarence DeWolfe Bigelow (s/o Gideon Bigelow & Caroline Eaton)
b 04 March 1857.
but the link to Clarence's data was invalid.
I believe the URL that I was going to was:

 I was perusing your site on King Philips War.  I became interested in
the war when reading the documentation on the town of Suffield, CT where
my ancestors had settled.  It was quite interesting  to read about
several towns being abandoned.
As a former curator and a huge living history buff ( former member of
the Fort Stanwix Garrison and the BAR) I am interested to know if there
are any local reenactment groups in our area for the early to late
1600s.  Have you come across any?
