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.

Hello Rod,

I wish to update some of the files regarding relatives in my line, beginning with

Descendant Note to replace the present note, which has outdated links, etc.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 added to
the page, should that be appropriate.

Updates on his descendants will follow later on. Thank you very much for all the
good work. This is one heck of a project you have undertaken.

4/07/98--From Marguerite Atteberry Emmons (emmons@gte.net) :

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.

From Adda's Notes:

George Custis, Born Dec. 3rd 1744 Died  Dec 17th 1829 aged 85 years & 2 days? (so stated by the notes)
His Wife Catherine Custis Born April 7th 1765 Died  Sept. 22 1844 aged 79 yr 5 mo 15 da.
She was a daughter of Nathaniel Leatherman and Catherine Boyer.

I am the great granddaughter of George Custer Bigelow. Son of Daniel K. Bigelow and Hannah Yancy. For as long as I can remember I have been told that our family was related to General Custer. My grandmother has letters from General Custer to the family. I know there has been a decrepancy on whether Lebbeus Bigelow married a Elizabeth Custer or an Elizabeth Custis. I can asure you that he married Elizabeth Custer. General Custer and Elizabeth were cousins. Elizabeth's grandfather Paul Custer and General Custer's great great grandfather were brothers. I've been trying to get on portions of the Bigelow website but it comes back saying that slic.com and simplenet.com don't exist. Just thought you should
know.

Subject: Custer over Custis
From: Lisarelli, Danial F. SSG 75DIV"   < danial.lisarelli@usar.army.mil >    
Sir,
It is true that General Custer and Elizabeth Custer Bigelow were cousins.  My grandfather Floyd Ellsworth Bigelow Sr. told my mother this plus many other facts that I have independently confirmed.  The Custis confusion comes from unknown sources.  If you check the census it's all Custer.  We were told that we were related to George Washington through the Custis line but we are related to Washington through Catherine Leatherman Ball.  Custis was his wife's maiden name and a completely different family than G.A. Custer.  Hope this helps.
