Rod, unfortunately, my uncle, Folger Bigelow passed away in Lynchburg, VA - his father was Louis Bigelow and his grandfather was D F Bigelow. His daughter, Judy Bigelow Leslie and her two children Rick and Teri arranged the memorial service December 3, 2005. Judy's husband, Sam Leslie participated in the memorial service, as well as my two brothers (David and Dan), Dan's wife Jo, our cousin (Fran Gragg) and Folger's sister, Adele Gragg were able to attend the service. Folger was very intelligent, had a tremendous sense of humor, loved sports, was an avid tennis player and was a great ballroom dancer with his wife Ruth. We admired him greatly and he will certainly be missed.
Also, In our local paper this morning, they had an article about Cindy Bigelow, the new president and granddaughter of the Bigelow Tea Co originator, R C Bigelow. Is she any relation to us?  see /rod8/wal86681.htm .....................ROD

Quite by accident I stumbled upon your web page as I was researching my Grandfathers uncle, Ferdinand Gregorovius.  I thank you for the information on D. F. Bigelow and Folger Bigelow.  Aunt Caroline had given one oil painting to me and I inherited three others when my aunt, Dorothy Gregorovius died.  I guess I should have begun by saying that George Gregorovius was my mother's brother.
We have lost touch and assume that Caroline has passed away.  Is she buried with George in Plattsburgh?

I did a google search on my great grandfather, DF Bigelow, and eventually came across your name. My Mother's father
was Louis Barnes Bigelow, who was DF Bigelow's son. My mother told the story many times of the tragic death of Folger
Allen Bigelow. I have paintings by both Daniel Folger and Folger Allen Bigelow.
 I would like to hear from you.

I reached your site and the Bigelow Society site and was much impressed. I'm going to be spending days and days tracking down family members. Thanks.
I can send you some information on Folger A. Bigelow as soon as I dig into my files and have a chance to xerox what I have.  He was the son of Daniel Folger Bigelow, the artist, and was, I think, an even better artist than his father. Unfortunately, he died in a gun accident when he was 24 and that was that. We have several of his paintings, including a charming one of what we think was his house and dog, done when he was only 14.

 I am trying to find out information on an artist by the name of L.H. Barnes.  I came across this website for Louis
Barnes Bigelow and am wondering if this may be the same person.  L H Barnes painted a portrait of my
grandmother in Savannah GA in 1944-45. He also painted portraits of Hollywood stars and the pope.  He died a
pauper in Savannah, Ga, July 1945 he was 61 years old when he died.  He was from Chicago and had been a
professor there.  My father is trying to find information on L H Barnes.  The obit he has of him said that no
family could be found when he died.  My grandfather an officer in the Salvation Army in Savannah had been
taking care of him before he died.
     Is this the Louis Barnes in your family tree? \ T Eger
