Descendant Notes: 11/18/98:
I emailed you once before about Clarice Lunnette Bigelow and her husband Ellery Gurdon Ireland.  The spellings you have for both of their middle names are spelled different than what I have been told by family members.  I wrote back to MI for birth certificates and found that on Clarice's birth certificate it did not have her middle name on there is simply said "Clarice L. Bigelow".  And for Ellery it said "Ellery Gurdon Ireland".  middle name spelled GURDON not GORDON.  What do I need to do so that change is made in the main records of the Bigelow Society. Thank you Matthew Jardin

My Great Great Grandmother was Nettie Parsons, wife of Omer Bigelow. I have her bedroom dresser in my bedroom.  I never knew much about
Grandma Bigelow other than she lived a long time and she died before I was born.  I would like to know more about my family.  I do have
information of the children and grandchildren, etc. of Omer Bigelow.  Where do I enter this information so that the line is updated?
I hope to hear from you soon.

My name is Mardell Dunn Pheil.  I am 71 years old and grew up in East Lansing Michigan.  I am a great granddaughter of Omar and Nettle Bigelow, granddaughter of Ethel Dunn Bigelow and daughter of Carl Omer Dunn. I have many memories of the Bigelow farm.  Edith Bigelow Carr lived down the street from us in East Lansing. Ethel and Clarice always remained close. My Dad visited Burr and his wife Marion often.  I have Grandma Parsons large chest of drawers.  I was told many stories about the Parson's trip to Kansas and back in a covered wagon. Please contact me if I can be of any help in adding information
to the Bigelow family history.  Sincerely, Mardell Pheil
