You have in your Bigelow family tree a "Tryphena" who is married to a Dewey Hawthorne. Do you have where they are buried? I am researching a relative of mine who's name is J. Dewey Hawthorne who was born in the year 1898 in Redford Township, Wayne County Michigan in the year 1898.
Just thought I'd give it a try....
If you have any information, please email to my address at
Thanks in advance.
Dewey Hawthorne was one of the owners of the Glenhurst Golf club. Dewey was married to a Paulger.

From: Paulette Wright Paultte@aol.com
My name is Paulette Wright and I live in Atlanta, Georgia. I am trying to do
genealogy research for myself and my family. My Mother was Jane Pauler. Her
father was Stanley Paulger, son of Thomas E Paulger. Thomas E Paulger's
father was Thomas Paulger born in 1829 in Nottinghamshire, Lancashire or
Linciolnshire, England. ( In the book Sackett's of America it says that
Thomas was from Notthinghamshire, England but a cousin of mine says that he
was born in Lancashire or Lincolnshire. I do not know which is correct) He
left England in 1849.
Thomas Paulger settled in Redford, Michigan. He married Emily Sackett. I know
that Thomas E Paulger and John Paulger, who married Celia Bigelow.. were
brothers according to the US census. John's and Celia children were Tryphena,
Edna, and Bessie Paulger.
I am trying to find out more about Thomas Paulger from England. I did not
know if the descendants of John Paulger may have some information. Do you
happen to have any information on descendants of the Dewey Hawthorne and
Tryphena Paulger, Edna Paulger and Clayton Nacker, Bessie Paulger and Walter
Nacker, that are living today. I would like to try to contact them.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanking you in advance,
