See FORGE article "Old Furniture" 1980-Vol.9, #1, P. 10.  Billie Marie (Bigelow) Hayes great great grandfather.  Billie (in 1980) was of Montpelier, VT who uses daily a bureau owned as early as 1835 by Relief (Newhall) Bigelow,  wife of Jonathan B. then of Conway, MA and was taken to Vermont in 1841 when the family moved there.  Relief died in 1891 and the bureau went to Edwin P.  Bigelow, grandson and used at "The Ledges" in Stowe until the place was sold. It then went to  Edwin's son, Edwin L. Bigelow who took it to his home in Manchester, VT.  In the late 1960's he gave it to his cousin's grand-daughter Billie Marie.  The dresser was still used in 1980 and was 152 years old.

Also FORGE article, Vol.27, No.1, January 1998, page 14, Newspaper clipping submitted by Billie Bigelow Hayes, Montpelier, VT, dated 14 Apr 1915 published in Stowe VT newspaper--"I remember Addie, Annie and Susan, but never heard much about Dr. Edwin Bigelow.  I assume he never married either, so no grandchildren from all these children. I have a gold ring in the box, with Addie, Annie and Susie's names on it, so think it's gold that Eliakim brought home from California.."
