I am doing a search on the Bigelow family for a friend of mine. I have
a copy of a letter that was orally given by Lucy
May Bigelow to her daughter Marla Mae Carter when Lucy was 87 yrs
old in 1964. In the letter she tells of John Bigelow marrying Mary
Warren and of their son Joshua's marriage to Elizabeth Flegg. Then
there seems to be a generation missing and she says, "Your great great
grandfather Henry Bigelow born in 1794 and your great great
grandmother, Julia Levanway was born in 1806. They were descendants of
some of the colonists Bigelow." Can you tell me how this Henry and
Julia were related to John and Mary or if they were even related at
all? Also, I did some extensive research on the LDS Site
and was tracing the
Warren Line, before I found you and your site. Can you tell me if a
William De Warren really married Gundried Princess Of England in abt
1077 and if her lineage goes back as far as 190??? You may not know the
answers to all these questions, but I wanted to ask to be sure. I don't
want to give my
girlfriend alot of wrong information, and I am fairly new with the
but run into very nice people that are more than willing to help. Thank
for any information you can give me on these people.
It really gets confusing when you see so many dates for the same
person. Patsy Gannon firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi Rod. I have a handwritten obit my grandfather Alfred Rufus Bigelow
wrote himself in 1954. It had Bigelow family info.
Edwin Thomas Bigelow married to Laura Jenner.
They had 4 children:
Caroline b. 1884; d. 1886
Rufus b. 1885 d. 1955;
Theo b. 1887-married a Williams ; moved to CA
and Ethel Ray b. 1890- married a
Mason; moved to CA
Laura Jenner Bigelow died 1894 from measles at age 28.
Edwin Thomas went on to marry Lucy May Floyd.
Their children are: Doris;
Lois- b. 9 Jun 1906 d.26 Sep 1998- married a Carter;
Harold and Howard (twins).
Don't have all their birthdates. I have a picture of Harold and
Howard as children and a picture of an elderly Edwin Thomas w/ wife
Lucy May (Floyd) Bigelow had
no daughter named Marla Mae Carter. Her daughter Lois married a Carter
so maybe Marla Mae is a granddaughter??
Thought I'd pass along this info.
