My name is Don Shafer, 3015 Frampton Dr. Toledo Ohio 43614  Telephone 419 385 0475.  Please post my query as many places as you can. David Bigelow  Birth around 1836.  Father Jonathan Bigelow, Mother Polly Hines.  In 1860 living with father and mother. In 1870 living next to father. Alone. Locations of both is Auglaize Co. Ohio. I believe he was in the civil war.  His father died in 1876.  I lost him in 1880C.  According to death records he is supposed to be the father of Juliet, Dianna and Dora Bigelow.  The mother is Charlotte Harris, daughter of Jonathan and Elizabeth Bradford Harris.  No birth records found and no marriage record for him and Charlotte. When Charlotte did get married she was married under her maiden name.   So you see I really have a problem.

Hi Rod,
 I would like to pass on some information on a son of Jonathon Bigelow b 1809-wife Polly son David Bigelow (1835) who was married to Charlotte Harris(1836)
they had a Daughter Dianah Almira b 16 Oct 1864 and died 15 Feb 1935 She married Lewis Golden great grand parents of my husband. 
Charlotte Harris in 1860: Logan, Auglaize, Ohio living with her parents and her marriage to David I do not have a date for but assume after 1860.
on the 1870 census she is listed living with her Mother and siblings,(her father died before the census and David Bigelow is living with his parents on the 1870.)  there is Juliet and Dianah and Savanna Bigelow living with them, which after seeing the info posted on Martin it is confusing who Juliet and Savanna's father is. I think it was David but unsure. 
Charlotte was either divorced or widowed from David Bigelow and she remarried John Fisher.  The Dora that they list as a Bigelow is a Fisher that was the daughter of Charlotte and John.  Dora married Francis Miller in 1886. 
I hope this helps clear up some of the confusion, but still adds some in another respects.  I also have a family story to David Bigelow  being a Chief and Dianah Elmira (see pic below), an indian princess and then later David is said to serve in the civil war as a scout possibly.  Have you any information that would help in learning the truth about this family story? 
sincerely Betty Minzey (minzey tree posted on ancestry) thank you for your time.
