In Reply to: M. HALKYARD m. J PURDIE, then W. BIGELOW by Geri R. Gilbert of 190

All I know of the Bigelows is what I received in a letter from Hank Meals who wrote a history of Columbia Hill where several of my family members lived. Kate Williams, my grandmother, married (1)Frank Bigelow and had a son Walt Bigelow and(2) then divorced him and married William J. Robinson. According to Hank Meals of Nevada City, Ashley Bigelow was a former mine mgr for Eureka Lake Co.,went to mine in Alaska with sons Garrett, Chester, & Thomas. They managed a placer mine in Mongolia 1898-1901.They all formed Siberia Quartz Mine on Badger Hill in 1902.I don't know which son William or Frank descended from. I can give you Mr.Meals email address if you think he may have more information.
