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
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

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?
