Zadock M. 7 BIGELOW

15337.A2      Zadock M. 7 BIGELOW son of William F. 6 ( Noah 5 , Cornelius 4, Samuel 3, Samuel 2, John 1 and Elizabeth (EARL) BIGELOW, was born in Andes township, Delaware, NY 25 September 1836. In 1853, he moved with his parents to Montcalm county, MI. Later they moved to Gratiot county, where he was drafted, 04 November 1864 and served in Co. A., 15th MI Infantry. He was discharged in Philadelphia in July of 1865 and returned to MI. From his Civil War pension application, we learn that he moved with his family to WI - (one paper says 1868 and the other says 1872) and resided there until he moved to CA in 1874. He settled in Santa Rosa, Sonoma, CA and raised plums/prunes. In 1897, Zadock applied for a veteran's pension and in it declared, (apparently to end confusion between himself and first cousins of the same Christian name), that he: "ever did I sign my name as Zadock M. Bigelow". His pay stubs from the army vary in the spelling of the name. From the same papers, we learn that he was married twice, first to Rosella DeLong and second, in May 1895, to Charity M. White, but that he could provide no proof of either marriage: "as my wife has the papers in Michigan", he stated in 1898. We determine the date of (1)as circa 1862 and that of (2)as __ May, 1895. He died 13 May l913 in Sonoma county, CA.
