Rod,  I was going through some old papers that had accumulated in my truck and found a slip of paper from a day when my wife and I had gone to my fathers grave in Skowhegan.  We came across a few gravestones with "Bigelow" on them and wrote them down, knowing that my family had come from that area.  We figured someday we would be able to work them into my genealogy. Some of them were in the line you sent me.  Some I have no idea.  I am sending them to you and maybe they will make some sense to you.

James (5)Bigelow d 1829 (this matches James 5 )
Robert Bigelow 1900-1966
Forest Bigelow 1808-1904
Rosco G. Bigelow 1867-1937 (w) Carrie E. 1869-1959 (this matches 16251.2771, son of Wilson 8 )
Levi (?15251.A)'s wife Sally d 1886 (yes this matches this Levi 6 )
Charles d 1853
Amasa Bigelow (this could be Amasa 7 , son of James 6 )
Benjamin Bigelow (this could be Benjamin Flagg 8 (1839-1919)
Vincent Bigelow (this could be son of Benjamin; (1872-1872) 16251.A11)
Charles Bigelow
Ephrim and Sally Bigelow (this could be Ephraim (7) )
Hannah 6-13-1794 to 9-4-1855 (this is Hannah 7 , dau of George 6 )

We plan on going back to Skowhegan and checking out some of these and looking for others. We really didn't have much time that day so we didn't get to look over the whole cemetary or write down some of the dates.  I will let you know when we find any more.   Dick

He was married to Eudora Mary Pine on December 25, 1876.
He died September 4, 1934 in Live Oak, Sutter, California.
If you have any information on this person, would you please share it with me.
Thank you,
