 Hello, my name is Michelle Bigelow, and I am 19 years old. I live in California and was checking
out the internet. I have always wondered where the name Bigelow came from. Some people say
that it is English, and some say that it is Indian. Yet I am not sure. It has always been a goal of
mine to figure out where I am from. I don't really know the names of my Great Grandparents, so
it is hard for me to find out if anyone on your web site is a start to my family line. I do however
know that my father is Robert Bigelow, born in 1954 in Chicago. His parents are George and
Joan. This is all the information that I know right now. If there is anyway that you can tell me
anything, it would be greatly appreciated. I will try to find out more information. If you dont
have any information, please atleast write me back so that I know that you got this. Thank you
very much!

Thank You so much. That is my Grandfather, and Great Grandfather. It's nice to
know where i am from. I have two brothers. Dan, who is 22, and Mike who is 17. What a
thrill!!!! Thank you so very much.

I intersect with the Bigelow family in the Howell and Gill lines, and can provide additional details (if you want to go up or down those paths). Wilburforce Gill was an interesting guy, his father William Gill was one of the first settlers of Northport in 1854, and the family became wealthy in mercantile and lumber businesses. I unfortunately descend from William's younger brother Thomas (the poor Gills!). It's fun to have a place name, Gill's Pier, in Leelanau County where I grew up. It was pronounced Gillspear, and I didn't realize there was a Gill in their until I first saw it on a map!! Two Howell bothers married two Gagnon brothers.  My grandmother was a Gagnon.

Hi Rod,
  On your webpages for Bigelow genealogy, you mention Walter Bigelow who has a son Jack Bigelow from Norwood
OH.  I am related to Jack's daughter by marriage and would like to trace some of her family for her.  Could you give me a
few connections from Walter Bigelow, although they are not on your webpage?  Nice presentation of the material on your
site, by the way.

Thanks ....David Shaw  Philadelphia

Here is some updated information on my dad, Jack Bigelow.  He passed away on
June 24, 2005.  Here is the death notice from the Cincinnati, OH.  There is
no gravesite because he chose to donate his body to science.  Once the
University Cincinnati is done with his body, they will cremate his remains
and inter them at Springrove Cemetary.  The school has a memorial stone for
all who chose this donation program but no name is inscribed.  His name will
be in the cememtary registry and the medical archives at the University.

Anderson), beloved father of Vicky (John) Pickett, Chicago, IL, Jeffrey
