Hi Mr. Bigelow!
I am great-grandaughter of Wesley, and have in my possession his family Bible, several photo albums (Roy was an excellent amateur photographer), Martha Ellen Andrews scrap book, and several pieces of needlework done by various family members. Can send information to fill in the blanks on this page and add several more generations if you would like me to do so. Also could scan photos if desired. My mother - now 88 years old, but with excellent memory, remembers both Wesley and Martha Ellen. I, myself, remember most of the children. My Aunt Maude (Julia Maude) kept entries in family Bible up to date as long as she lived.
Thanks for providing this excellent web site!

Correspondence Schuyler Falls Historical Society which includes following:
..... The family farm of 200 acres near Keeseville overlooked Lake Champlain. It was cut from the wilderness in 1774 by a Mr. Whitney, who either married a Bigelow girl or was a relative of some sort and sold to Wesley Bigelow when he was discharged from Union Army 8 Aug 1864 or 1865. The farm had been in the family for over 100 years when sold in summer of 1967.
