Still a great site. Looking for info about Isaac III and his son Israel. Any one have some for me?
Also can't seem to find anything on Dr. Lebbeus Loomis Bigelow who moved from Mass. to PA.
Thank you for taking on this work that Don worked with ever so diligently and whose death I, as well as so many others, deeply regret. I have recently constructed a family home page that I wish to share. It contains photos of my family, some collages of my family I created with Adobe PhotoShop that you may find interesting, and many of my essays from previous home pages. Visits, queries and comments (and information and help) from everyone are welcome. My (Bigelow) family roots, beginning with John 1Biglo who came to America in 1633 and following with Samuel 2, Isaac 3, Isaac 4 , Isaac 5 , Israel 6, Lebbeus Loomis 7 , Isaac Leatherman 8, Dollar Richard (9), and me (10) (James Wheeler Bigelow). My (Wheeler) family roots, beginning with Thomas Wheeler (1), William (2), Samual (3), James (4), John Marion (5), Flossie Fern (6), and me (7). Jim Bigelow E-mail "James W.

I wish to update some of the files regarding relatives in my line, beginning
Lebbius Loomis 7 Bigelow 15923.73. The update will be in the form of a
Descendant Note to replace the present note, which has outdated links, etc.
Also, I am attaching a photo of Dr. Lebbius Loomis I would like to have
the page, should that be appropriate.
Updates on his descendants will follow later on. Thank you very much for
good work. This is one heck of a project you have undertaken.

My BIGELOW data is currently in the form of notes and letters collected by my great grandmother Adda Timmons MOSS in the 1890's. Perhaps of greatest interest to you and other researchers is a copy she made of notes of an interview with Dr. Eliphaz BIGELOW (probably the Israel Eliphaz Bigelow whose bio is on your site. He was a nephew of her grandmother Mary Milvina BIGELOW who had married William D. Daugherty. Her mother was Mary Dimmis Daugherty. Adda's uncle G. W. Darety (sic) conducted the interview. The notes include the family information on the CUSTIS (not CURTIS) family and it's connection to George Washington. I have been amazed that the misspelling of this name as CURTIS persists. Most history books speak of the CUSTIS family relations to Washington. In my mother's possession is a cloisonne and pearl pin that is supposed to have been owned/worn by Martha Washington. I have no documentation of this but have heard of this and the CUSTIS family since I was a child. My grandfather, Adda's son had told the story. Finding the notes was both exciting and disappointing. Exciting because it leant credence to the pin's story; disappointing because it showed no direct relation to the CUSTIS family. Eliphaz's notes also include the battle his greatgrandfather Isaac was supposed to have been in the Rev War. I too, have had no luck finding his service.
