15336.521      James 8 BIGELOW, son of Adam Chester 7 ( Cornelius 6 , Paul 5, Cornelius 4, Samuel 3, Samuel 2, John1 and Laurene (SMITH ) BIGELOW, was born at Chatham township, Argenteuil, Quebec on 13 Sept 1820. When he was about ten years of age, the family moved to Buckingham township, Papineau, Quebec which was then called Ottawa county. His first marriage was on 03 February 1845 to his first cousin, Mary Bigelow (15336.541). She was born on 18 May 1827 (Her brother's prayer book gives 27 May) and she died on 21 January 1883. James married (2) Eleanor Bigelow (15336.545) the sister of his first wife. She was born 10 September, 1835. James and Eleanor lived a few years at Grenville where her death is recorded as 28 August 1908. James died on 28 September 1914 at Glen Almond. Both are buried at St. John's church, Glen Almond. Of interest: after death of Eleanor, James lived with his youngest son. The 1861 census gives his age as 41. On censuses of 1871 and 1881, his age increased very rapidlly, so that, at death, he was allegedly 104 years of age.
