Carroll Alexander 10 BIGELOW
Former Director of Bigelow Society
Carroll's lineage: Carroll Alexander 10 BIGELOW, ( LeRoy 9, William Henry 8 , Ransom 7 , Jonathan Oakes 6 , Nathan 5, John 4, Joshua 3, Joshua 2, John 1)

Carroll Alexander 10 BIGELOW,  long time Bigelow Society member and Director from 1978 to 1984, passed away, in Seattle, WA on April 26, 1991. He had been hospitalized for several months With pneumonia and lung disease. He also had had a slight stroke. He is survived by his widow, Ellen, of Seattle and daughter Mrs. Ruth Anne JACOBS, of Laguna Niguel, CA.

Carroll was born in Seattle on 19 March 1908. His mother died when he was a little over a year old and as his father was an engineer and traveled a lot, Carroll was raised by his grandparents. He was a "Crown Pointer" BIGELOW by heritage, coming from that large family of BIGELOWS of Crown Point, New York, who migrated from Massachusetts to New York at the close of the Revolution, after a few years in Vermont.

Carroll was retired from Boeing Aircraft Company, having been an aviation metalsmith there from 1934 until retirement in 1972, He loved to hunt and for a long time was an expert trap-shooter, It is thought that his years of trap-shooting led to his profound deafness in later years - no ear protection was used in those earlier days.

From: FORGE, The Bigelow Society Quarterly, July 1991, Vol.20, No.3,
Also: FORGE, The Bigelow Society Quarterly, Oct 1978, Vol.7, No.4, p.70:
"Lived in Seattle area all my life and reside at 4614 S. 148th St."  When checking his genealogy as an elected director of the Bigelow Society in 1977-1978, it was discovered that Ransom had no son Lewis L., but Lewis A. did have a son William H.  Therefore, for now, this line was placed here.  If this is an error, it will be corrected when the correct names are found.
...."my mother passed away when I was a little over a year old, and as my father was a mining engineer, traveling a great deal, I was raised by my grandparents, the William Henry Bigelows." 1934 std. work with boeing aircraft Co.--until retirement 1972.

Carroll replaced Fred Bigelow as director with the Bigelow society.  Both were of the Crown Point, NY line of Joshua, s/o John (R2944)
