I have ALL the family genealogy (up to date) on my computer. I have copied all the Bigelow files that Grandpa Bigelow and my Mom, Janice, had. I have done some research and am still recording stuff. Attached in one of
the Family Group sheets in "Word" format. As you can see, Horace Holly Bigelow was actually an
Uncle of ours, as he was the brother of Arthur Julian Bigelow. James Franklin Bigelow, Arthur's son,
was Grandpa Bigelow's father. I have lots, lots more information, including pictures, on all the branches
and you are welcome to it all!!
