Note 07/30/05:
From: Carol Bigelow Dooley  
My name is Carol Bigelow Dooley.  I am a descendent of Dr. John R. Bigelow whose son. George Storrs was my great-grandfather.  My grandfather was Harry Towers Bigelow, Sr. and my father was Harry Towers, Bigelow.  We have the family to the fifth generation--Harry Towers Bigelow V also known as Quinn.  Could you tell me where I can find more information on this branch of the Bigelow family??  Are we related?? I live in Kalamazoo, Michigan.  The Bigelow family brought blueberries to this part of Michigan which have made this part of the state famous.  I just attended a family reunion and am trying to get as much information together as possible before the "elders" all die out.  Hope to hear from you.

Note 1976:  From Barbara Oberlander, came Pedigree Chart and a letter that was sent to her by Pat in 1976 to Barbara Willsey, mailed to Society much later!  Barbara gives family of Benjamin F. Bigelow, son of this John Reynolds Bigelow (R14994) 15145.54, as follows: Child #8: Benjamin Franklin Bigelow born 1847--instead of #4 as in book, Vol. II, p.28, (family of 15145.54).  If, as Barbara says, he is Number 8, then there are children we don't have yet.  [Loring: "unless there is documentation, I hate to change the number".  "If Benjamin is #8 and born 1847, how do we account for William b. 1850 and George b., 1852 as 5 and 6 respectively? I'd like to know on what basis this #8 has come up.  I'd be willing to change with proper sources.  Meanwhile I'd like to keep original number."]
