In the Descendants of Robert and Elizabeth Mansfield, in generation 10 you list Ruth
Campbell (b. 2/8/1896, d. 2/22/1966).  You are undoubtedly aware that she was the founder of
the Bigelow Tea Company.  Do you have ANY information about the parents or earlier
ancestors of her husband, David E. Bigelow?  Was his middle name "Eustace"?  I am part of
the extended Bigelow family, and am trying to tie David E. Bigelow to our family.  Any input
you can provide will be appreciated!

Bigelow History From:

                                                     Over 50 years ago my mother, Ruth Campbell Bigelow
                                                     changed the way we drink tea in the United States. An avid
                                                     tea connoisseur, Ruth thought tea drinkers like herself
                                                     would enjoy a more zestfully flavored tea. Happening upon
                                                     a special colonial recipe that called for tea to be blended
                                                     with orange peel and spices, she decided to try and
                                             re-create what she felt sounded like a wonderful idea. After much trial
                                             and error in the family kitchen, she finally hit upon what she thought was
                                             the best tasting recipe. After sharing samples with family, friends and
                                             acquaintances, one of them reported back that her new tea had caused
                                             nothing but constant comments. Thus "Constant Comment"® name
                                             was born.
                                             In the ensuing years, my wife Eunice and I along with our two daughters
                                             have carried on expanding Ruth's idea with many new flavors in tea,
                                             herb teas, green teas, and iced teas. Bigelow Teas have grown and
                                             grown until today you can find a generous selection in virtually every
                                             supermarket in the United States. Little could my mother ever have
                                             imagined that the little tea company she started so many years ago
                                             would sell over a billion cups of tea this past year.
                                             My wife Eunice and I hope you will enjoy your visit to our web site. Not
                                             only do we look forward to telling you about our teas but we also have
                                             some new products that we're very excited about. And our "On the Web"
                                             Gift Shop has some ninety different gifts that are sure to please family
                                             and friends. Hopefully, you can find just the right gift for that next
                                             One last thing, because we're a family owned company we can put lots
                                             of time and attention into each and every tea we make. Our goal is to
                                             make sure you get the best tasting cup of tea possible. Because we
                                             think flavor is so important, we overwrap and seal each and every tea
                                             bag in a stay fresh foil packet so that all the goodness stays in until you
                                             get ready to have a cup of tea.
                                             Please enjoy your stay with us. If you have any questions, suggestions,
                                             or thoughts you'd like to share with us just send them along. We'd love
                                             to hear from you.
                                             David C. Bigelow
