Bigelow Families from MI
Posted by: Terri Napoleon
I have been searching out the Bigelows ever since my sister in law went to a museum in Kalamazoo, MI recently and found that the Bigelows helped to build that town. We have been able to trace ancestors back to the MayFlower. The lineage goes back to the 1600's. The Bigelows in Kalamazoo were two brothers who started a windmill factory and helped to start one of the first banks. These brothers are linked to Bigelows in the MA area.
Correspondence from James Nathan Bigelow, e-mail: (firstname.lastname@example.org) a great grandson of Nathan and grandson of Melvile J. (son of Nathan 15146.23).
NOTE from James Nathan Bigelow: I notice Melville J. Bigelow, a businessman in Kalamazoo, Michigan is assumed to be a brother of Nathan Bigelow, 15146.23. Melville J. Bigelow was my grandfather, and left in his handwriting a listing of his descent from John Biglo. In that listing Nathan Bigelow, son of Irad Bigelow is shown as his father. Nathan and Melville are buried in one of two Bigelow family plots in Mountain Home Cemetery in Kalamazoo. Elizabeth White, wife of Nathan is buried there as are both of Melville's two wives. Melville came to Kalamazoo before his father, ran a grocery store with his brother, and continued in various business enterprises including the Phelps-Bigelow Windmill Company and the Kalamazoo National Bank. His son Howard French Bigelow, my father, was a professor at Western Michigan University.
