Descendant note:
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.

     Have you ever heard of Israel I. Bigelow, who lived  in McAlevy's Fort, Penna., in 1859?  He was my great grandfather, and I can't locate him ANYWHERE!  (Great grandmother was Mary Young Bigelow.)  Thanks for ANY help!!!
     These Bigelows - my forebears, lived in the Huntingdon area of Penna.,- McAlevy's Fort, Bald Eagle Valley, all in the
same area. My grandfather was David Young Bigelow, born Oct. 30 or 31, 1859, in McAlevy's Fort. My father was David William Bigelow, born Sept. 16, 1901, in the Huntingdon area. My name is Doris Bigelow Scheidemantle, and I live in
NY. I would dearly love to learn more of this of this line.  In the Spring we hope to stay a few days in that area and investigate. I was born and raised in Altoona, Penna..  I am hoping to find some kind of lead at Historical Societies, etc. Will let you know if and when I ever find out!!! (Incidentally, my grandfather, David Y. Bigelow, was married to my grandmother, Martha Matilda Orner, from the same area.)   Thanks for any help!!  With a name like Israel I. Bigelow, ggf MUST have been related to others of the same name!!!
     That's the one!!!  My grandfather's obit says his father was Israel I., but this is definitely the one, because the Mary Young is correct, the brothers and sisters are correct, and the Oct. 1859 date of birth is correct. (I just reread the obit and the dates for my grandparents are Oct. 7th and 8th, respectively>)  I am so excited  I can scarcely sit still.  THANK YOU so very much!!!  Now I have something substantial to go on!!!  Will stay in touch. And thanks again.  Your help is much appreciated!!!

  Hi Rod.  I wonder if you could help.    I have seen an obituary for Mrs. Israel Bigelow  (this would be Mary A. Young), and the date of the newspaper was 2/2/1889.  It stated that she was 70.  We all know how newspapers can get things wrong, but the date on the paper is 1889.   The dates given for her on Israel's page in the Bigelow Society are 1832-1899.   Is there any way we can find out for sure?   I have searched all over and cannot find anything more about her.   (I know this is the same lady because her survivors are my grandfather and his siblings, and the place of burial is correct.) Do you have any suggestions?    Thanks much for your help.Finding her has been a real challenge!            Doris

Hi.  I am wondering how many of our Bigelow clan sport a nice
dimple in the chin?   My grandfather had one, my father and five of his
eight siblings had one, and I have one.  Is this a Bigelow trait?     My
greatgrandfather was Israel M. Bigelow, married to Mary Young.  My grandfather was
David Young Bigelow, married to Martha Matilda Orner.   I am curious to
know if there are other Bigelows with this delightful chin feature.
