Comments:  Actually, Referred by Rod's phone call to my parents Mr & Mrs James Bigelow of Brandon, VT. Thank you for calling and letting us know about the reunion and your web site, Rod! My father is the son of James Lothrop Bigelow & Priscilla (Linsley) of both Branford CT & Killington VT. They also had a home in Orange City FL. His father was Sullivan Lothrop Bigelow (m. Jenny Falkenstrom) born in Cornville (Skowhegan) ME, the son of Wilson 8 & Esther (Lothrop) of St Albans ME. Wilson's parents were  Jonathan 7 & Melissa (Abbe) of Skowhegan Somerset Co ME. Jonathan's parents were James 6   & Betsy (Davis) also of same place. His parents James 5 & Mary (Sawyer) came from Templeton MA to settle the Kennebec Valley after the Revolutionary War. He was the son of
 James 4 & Sarah (?) Bigelow of Worcester MA.  James was the son of Jonathan 3 & Elizabeth (Bemis) of Weston MA. And, Jonathan was the son of Joshua & Elizabeth (Flagg). Joshua is the son of John Bigelow & Mary (Warren) of Watertown MA. We hope to see you at the reunion, but we are not sure of our travel plans, but thank you for the invitation! Keep us informed.

16251.27743   Frank Vining 10 Bigelow, son of Sullivan Lathrop (etc).  Frank said his branch of the family went up to the state of Maine, perhaps because his great great great grandfather James Bigelow had been up there with a regiment of the Massachusetts Militia.  James was a Major and his job was to intercept the British on their way down from Quebec to attack Fort Ticonderoga and then to NY.  Unfortunately, the "old boy" got lost and climbed up what is now known
as Mount Bigelow in Maine to try to find out where the British were.  He took up the rear so they could not retreat back to Quebec and that was the end of the British Army of Invasion.  There is a small town nearby Bigelow Mountain with a population of about 300 (?).  Frank said he had to turn back to find the place because he had gone through the town and didn't know it. One of his family, according to aunt "Carrie" took off for California, and prospected for gold and struck it rich. Perhaps he "put it in the Bigelow Bank of Ogden, Utah."  Frank's grandmother had told him of an "Aunt Bell" in Oakland CA. Some names listed in Mother Lothrop and Aunt Carrie's album were: Maxwell; Ford; Aretta Bell; Wing/ Foss; Ladd; Atwood; Chapman and Knowles."
His letter was to Laurel Bigelow Barklow, Rte. 2, Bx. 450, Ontario, Oregon.
Letter 6 Feb 1963 to Society.  He became a member of the Sons of the American
Revolution in Washington, DC, in Connecticut #4231 through General David
Humphrey's Branch.  See DAR Vol 138 #137879.
