From: "Frank Patterson" <  >
My grandmother is going to be 101 in April and remembers "Nick" Bigelow from North Wolcott. Her memory is untarnished and talks a lot about my g-g-grandfather,Charles Richards,and his best friend Nicholas Bigelow. On some of my g-g grandfather's CW pension papers, Mr. Bigelow went with him to various meetings about the pension and signed papers as a witness. I have gone up to the old homestead twice this past year and know approximately where the Bigelows lived. (On the lake) (I have a distant picture of their homestead in late 1800's-early 1900's) They both were in the the Civil War, different regiments. Often talked about the war, which the women and children were notable to share in. I believe this "Nick" may have named his oldest son after my g-g grandfather, one William Charles Bigelow. Be more than glad to share. I am from Horseheads, NY. My name is Frank Patterson. I have looked hard for the regiment that Mr.Bigelow served in and any picture of him. Grandma would get such a kick to see one if it were available.He will be in my book, if I ever get it done.It is basically about my g-g grandfather and my best friend who was killed in Vietnam on Mothers Day, May 12,1968.
I have an original picture,of which I am going to make a copy of the Nicolas Bigelow house on Lake Ontario. Distant shot,but shows what the area looked like close to a hundred years ago.I am really interested to see if any of your relatives have a picture of Nicholas Bigelow in order that I could show my Grandmother and possibly use in the book I am writing about g-g grandfather, Charles Richards. Grandma descibes them as "very,very good friends" spent a lot of time together.Described Nicholas as having a full gray beard, had some kind of growth that was distinguishing,etc.Remembers his father Charles Lewis B.and sons, Frank, Leona, etc. (see below)

New note 2023:
My name is Kimberly Guthrie Chaffee. I found your research page about the Bigelow family and saw that Frank Patterson commented on that page about his grandmother Verna remembering Nick Bigelow.
I am doing my family genealogy and Mr. Patterson and I are cousins. His grandmother Verna Richards was cousins with my grandmother Marjorie Fields Guthrie. I am researching Hiram Snyder, the grandfather to both Verna and Marjorie. Marjorie’s mother Edith Snyder was sisters with Georgia Snyder.

I was wondering if you have contact information for Frank so I could ask him some questions I have about the Snyders?
Thank you,
I am posting Parents of Rachel below:
