I want to correct a mistake that was made on 15923.711t Israel S. Bigelow. I gave his parent
as Eunice Bigelow 15923.713 that is not true....His parents are the following: 15923.71 Israel L Bigelow and Nancy A Soffer Born 09/06/1794 Died 08/26/1824. At this time Israel S 15923.711t went to live with his uncle 15923.77t Dr. Eliphaz Bigelow. After Nancy's death Israel L 15923.71 married Sarah Miller Born
01/10/1799 and died 08/11/? This is all written in Bigelow family bible records that were received from the Westmoreland Co. Historical
Society. Also a another mistake made on this line is that Israel L.15923.71 died in Centre Co. PA not Center Co. OH.
The children of 15923.711 Israel Stover Bigelow his child 15923.7119t Israel S. Bigelow is actually Isaac S Bigelow he was also the youngest son. His birth date was correct as being 01/27/1859. His marriage date was also correct as 09/29/1887. The wife listed is incorrect. His wife was Mary A. VanDuyce of Dubuque, Iowa and one daughter Emily born 04/29/1889. Emily married a J. M. Dick of Aurora, ILL. There was also a son Israel who is not listed, he lived in Bozeman, Montana then moved to Long View, Washington. This can be verified by history of Dubuque County, Iowa 1911. The Dubuque Herald Thursday March 22, 1900 the obit of Dr I. S. Bigelow. The Telegraph Herald, December 12, 1927. The obit of Dr. I. S. Bigelow. I have all ready sent you a copy of those papers.
