born 15 April 1880 at Camp Chase, Madison co, OH. Leslie Lawson went on to medical school, his brothers joined their father at the Naughten Street firm. Leslie Lawson graduated from East High School, possibly in 1898, and then attended Ohio State University for one year. But there are no institutional records available for either of these events. Records do indicate that he spent 8 years at Harvard University, obtaining an AB in 1903, an MD in 1906 and completing a 2-year surgical internship at Massachusetts General Hospital in 1908.
Upon returning to Columbus in 1908, Dr. Bigelow married Elizabeth Cole and opened a private practice at 185 E. State Street. He soon became involved with Children's Hospital located at Miller and Fair Avenues, 'not far from his home at 45 W. Franklin Park Avenue, which he purchased in 1913. Dr. Bigelow was one of the few physicians able to afford free time to Children's Hospital while he was establishing his private practice. (see below) In 1940, Dr. Bigelow stepped down as chief of the medical staff at Children's Hospital but remained head of the surgery department until his appointment as dean of the College of Medicine in March 1942. His tenure was abbreviated by his sudden death in January 1943. OSU President, Howard L. Bevis stated that during Bigelow's tragically brief tenure as dean, he guided the college into an accelerated program that hastened the preparation of students for military service in WWII, while coping at the same time with increased demand for hospital services.
born circa 1770, according to the Howe genealogy, in either Bernardston or Williamstown, MA. At the close of the Revolutionary War, Timothy's parents were converted to the Shaker faith, and entered the colony at Tyringham, Berkshire county, MA. The Shaker doctrine renounces all marriage, but Timothy was attracted to another inmate of the Shaker farm, and about 1800 they eloped. Her name was Sally Streeter.
They settled first in Herkimer county, NY, on the Black River, but later disposed of property there and during the winter of
1804-05 Timothy packed all his belongings on a two-horse sleigh, and with wife and two infants following a single cutter, journeyed westward.
According to a great-grandson, they had a hard journey over the northern route via Utica and Oneida, through unusually deep snow with frequent blizzards and icing conditions. At one time they camped on the eastern edge of the Montezuma marshes, when spring was at hand, with the vehicles breaking through snow and ice to the water below.
They settled in Manchester, Ontario county, NY, taking up 300 acres of unbroken forest. These were converted to fertile fields, first a log house erected, then a large frame home at what is known as Halladay's Corners. In 1812 he enlisted in the militia, and while in active service became ill. He returned home to die in 1814.
His widow Sally soon remarried, to a man called Elisha Turner. Fred Biglow devotes a page to say that Turner was a hard drinker, and as landlord of the country tavern that Timothy Bigelow had founded, was frequently a difficult individual. In a few years Turner sold out and moved to Collins Centre, Erie county, NY. We have no record of his death, (Elisha Turner died 22 May 1869 in Coral, McHenry, IL.) (see below), but his widow Sally lived many years more. She was a staunch Universalist, and knew the Bible well. She was strong, often walking to Buffalo to do her marketing, returning home with a thirty-pound pack on her back. In 1849 she followed her son Timothy to McHenry county, IL where she died at Franklinville on 27 Oct 1860, according to her headstone, which gives her birthdate as 17 Feb 1781. Though Fred Bigelow states in his book she was 95 years at death, this figures as scarcely eighty years.

His father died when Timothy was very young and his mother married secondly, Elisha Turner.

She was born in New York on 29 March 1819. Timothy was a farmer and hotel keeper in Collins Centre for many years. In the Spring of 1849, he went to Illinois and bought land on the banks of the Kishwaukee river. The family, with 6 children, appears on the census there in McHenry county. In the year of 1869, he erected a large cheese and butter factory that was known throughout the state as Bigelow's Factory. In 1878, he began to sell his acreage and the Bigelow Factory, but he kept 160 acres of land for himself where he had a large stock of fancy colts and horses. While on a journey to Wisconsin to visit his sister's children, he died. Fred Biglow, in History of the Bigelow Family, states Timothy died 13 April 1900 but his headstone reads: 19 March 1895.
