Dear Rod,

I have noticed there to be some questions as to whether or not he had a second wife due to the listed birthdate of his daughter, Anna Amelia, 01 Nov1856.  I found in the 1880 Census the household listing of this family.  Within this listing is a second wife by the name of Calista E. ( ) who was born in 1845.  Anna's birth year is given as 1852, therefore, given this information, she is the child of the first wife, Mary, who died in 1853.  Anna's husband and son are also in this household.
 Hope this helps someone out.  Thanks for providing such an excellent site!

From: David Lemon   <  d.lemon@verizon.net  >
Concerning Hasket Derby Pickman Bigelow (#15133.48), I can confirm that he remarried after death of his first wife and can provide the following
His second marriage was to Calista Elizabeth Brace on Aug 13, 1879, in Cook co, IL, possibly in Evanston. The Illinois Marriage Index gives
00041731 as the record number (http://www.sos.state.il.us/GenealogyMWeb/MarriageSearchServlet). There were no children from this marriage.
Hasket (usually called "H.D.P.") died in Chicago on Feb 25, 1893 at age 77years. The Illinois Statewide Death Index gives 00000919  as the record
number (http://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/GenealogyMWeb/DeathSearchServlet).
Hasket was a member of the G.A.R. and was called Colonel. However, I have not found any confirmation of his service. He moved to Milwaukee after the Civil War, and is listed in city directories there as an insurance agent from 1867 to 1874. During this period, he also began working in Chicago, opening in 1868 and managing the Chicago office of the Hartford Steam Boiler Inspection and Insurance Company, for which company he worked until his death. He probably moved to Chicago in the early 1870s. His brother-in-law, Henry M. Lemon (married to Calista's sister Harriet Ella Brace), worked with him at H. S. B I & I and became manager of the Chicago office on Hasket's death.
The following death notice was published in the, Janesville Gazette, April 26, 1893, p. 4, col 3.
Colonel Bigelow.
         The remains of Colonel Bigelow, who died in Chicago last winter, were brought to Janesville today and laid in Oak Hill. Professor Emerson,
of Beloit, delivered the     prayer at the grave. The pall bearers were W. B. Noyes, A. A. Jackson, M. S. Jeffris, W. S. Jeffris, W. G. Wheelock, J.
T. Wright.
     Professor Joseph Emerson, mentioned here, was on the faculty of Beloit College, Beloit, Wis., and was the husband of Calista Bigelow's sister
Helen. Much about Helen and Joseph can be found in the Beloit College archives.
     Calista was a cousin of Frances E. Willard, the famous leaders of the Women's Christian Temperance Union, and was active in the movement herself. Her death notice was published in the Chicago Daily Tribune on Oct. 23, 1920, page 15:
                 BIGELOW--Calista Brace Bigelow, widow of H. D. P. Bigelow, passed away at her home, 110 S. Ashland-blvd., Friday morning, Oct. 22, 1920. She is survived by one sister, Mrs. Henry M. Lemon of Chicago, and a brother, M. P. Brace of Dunlap, Ia. Services Saturday, Oct.
23, at 2:30 p.m. at New First Congregational church chapel, corner of Ashland and Washington-blvds. Interment private at Janesville, Wis. Janesville and Walworth, Wis., papers please copy.
Hasket and Calista were buried in Oak Hill Cemetery, Janesville, Wis. The grave index information is as follows:
077-13-3 Bigelow, Celista w/o H.D.P. b. 1845 27 Oct 1920 - buried died Chicago, IL
077-13-8 Bigelow, H.D.P. 77y 24 Apr 1893 - buried Civil War Veteran born Lancaster, MA died Chicago, IL

Please feel free to load this information on your wonderful website. I hope someone might be able to fill in details of his early life and his military
service. I have photographs of both Hasket and Calista, taken later in their later years, and will be happy to send them if you would like.
Best regards,
David Lemon
