correspondence with descendants and their family records.

My Grandfather is listed: He was Lebbeus Isaac "Ike" Bigelow - He died in our home when I was 12 (in Nogales, Arizona) I believe in 1977.  I will double check. 
Lebbeus was married to May Alice Schnack (my Grandmother) - together they had 3 children:
Elizabeth, James, and Charles 
My father was Charles Bigelow b. January 15, 1925 - d. May 20, 2007
I have a lot more information that I can find and put together too. I have pictures and records and I was given the family Bible. 
I will submit them to you however you wish so that they can be on the website - I just didn't know how to do this.
Please let me know.
this is much appreciated,
Thanks again,

I have tried for many years to find the answers to my many questions.  I have been trying for so long to find out
who my great grandfather was named after.  His name was Eliphaz Bigelow Johnston.  He was born in Huntingdon Co., Pa.  His father was William Johnston, Mother Elisabeth Sarah Stelle.  (I've only gotten their names from my gr-grandfathers death cert.)  Up until last night I have had no luck looking up information on this portion of my family tree but last night I made an error typing in the name on the web site and putting in the first and middle name of my gr grandfather in the first and last fields, which gave me the information on Dr. Eliphas Bigelow.
  I have been reading your "un official" Bigelow page (very impressive) and I have also found two other sir names
that I also have in my family tree.  (Steele, Wadsworth). I have not yet found out what the link is and I was hoping you can tell me.  I have been up against this brick wall for over five frustrating years.  Unfortunately, there are no living Johnston's that are old enough to tell me any information that will help.  I have picked their brains until they are mad at me.
also looking for Francesca Bigelow.
Thanks so much   Jean Wall

Looking for the parents of Wilford, Burl, Merit and Montgomery Allen.

Israel 8 born 7 June 1825 in Adamsburg, PA was thus but six years of age when he traveled overland with his parents to Ohio. He remained on the farm until he reached the age of 21. During his late teens he studied medicine with the idea of going into medical practice, but for some unknown reason he instead took up a farm in 1847. Ten years later he was appointed postmaster of Plain City, and addition became a general merchant.
After Israel’s retirement, he traveled East to visit relatives, meeting over one hundred Bigelows. He also visited his Custer* cousins (His Grandfather Custer had been a cousin of President George Washington)

* see note from Marguerite Emmons about the Spelling of the name --- 4/7/98

On June 27 1847, the same year he took up a farm, Israel married Betsy A. Smith, daughter of Capt. E.Crocker and Irena (Doty) Smith. Betsy was born 21 October 1828 in Washington County, Vermont. She died 28 January 1914 in Plain City, Israel having died July 17 1896.

I have been researching the Weidman Family in Mifflin and Huntindon county Pa and have two relatives that married into the Bigelow family. Leah Weidman was the third wife of Eliphas Bigelow MD, and Martha Weidman married William G. Bigelow also MD.  Do you have or need any info on this branch?  I believe Leah and Martha were sisters to my ancestor Adam
Roop Weidman.    Kathy Waters
