His estate, which is peculiarly adapted to stock-raising, is located in the town of Tyrone, Schuyler County, and comprises some two hundred acres. ... and on it Mr. Bigelow has about twenty head of fine cattle. He manufactures a very fine quality of butter, which is sold almost exclusively in Rochester and the larger cities. ...

Socially he belongs to Lamoka Lodge No. 463. F. & A. M., and is Junior Warden of his lodge. Mr. Bigelow is both modest and unassuming, making friends of all with whom he comes in contact, and he is counted one of the progressive citizens of Schuyler County."
