The Bigelow Family in America
The family name of BIGELOW has been spelled many ways in colonial
records (Bigulah, Biggalough, Begaloo, Bigolo, Biggilo, etc.),
with BIGLO being used in the will of the first ancestor in America,

is from The Bigelow Society, Inc., its quarterly publication
FORGE, and its The Bigelow Family Genealogy (1986). Other
significant sources (short names) are Watertown Records
