According to what info I have,
there were 2 , one spelled Zaddock
and he lived in North Shade township and my great grandfather Zadoc, who lived in Pine River
township a few miles away and it shows on the Michigan Civil war records that Zaddock P was 28
yrs and Zadoc was 17. The family of my great grandfather had a farm of 40 acres and until about 20
years ago was still in the family. According to rootsweb civil war pages Zaddock P Bigelow is buried
in California. My great grandfather is buried in Oak Grove cemetary St.Louis Mi (gratiot county)
along with Elijah & Frelove Bigelow ( my g.g. grandparents). The other Bigelows buried in the family
lots are as follows: Abel b.? d.1869, Abram no info, Albert (my grandfather) Angie 1882-1883, Asa
1870-1879, Carl 1914-1918, Elijah (g.g.f.) d.1878, Eliza (wife of Zadoc) Everett 1885-1885, Frelove (wife
of elijah) James L, 1890-1894, Johney J 1880-1887, Mary A 1874-1879, Maryetta (my grandmother
wife of albert) 1888-1951, Oliver E (my great uncle) 1868-1944, Willard E (son of oliver) 1916-1998,
Zadoc d. 1914 (my great grandfather) Sarah (divorced wife of George Bigelow) I took my mother up
to the cemetary and I have some pictures of the headstones. We still have many family in the area
there of St.Louis/Alma Mi. I'll have to do some digging to get all my info together again. I work and
also do alot of workworking/crafts for the winter shows so it might take me awhile to get it to you,
but I will!!! It is great finding new relatives. I am confused about some things and as this is really all
new for me I hope I'll be able to help. Thanks again and really would love to hear from you again
and the best way to figure out whats what with all these names. The Gratiot county historical society
put together a book of ALL persons buried in Gratiot county by each cemetary, they did this from
cemetary records, church records, public records and bibles. A lot of work went into this book as
each member took time to go to the cemetary and check the headstones. Next time I'm up that way
I'm getting a copy. Anyway thanks and hope to hear from you. your new found 8th cousin, Randi
