This is a great site! I was doing an update to the copy of my family tree, which was done originally by Melville Bigelow.On your site I found my Great Great Grandfather, Job Gardner 6 Bigelow, father of Jabez Gardner 7 Bigelow. His son, Dr. Gardner J. 8 Bigelow, was my Grandfather. If you would like more information on this branch, I would be glad to supply it.
By the way, Gardner is my middle name, which comes from the Bigelow side.

In reference to Jabez Gardner Bigelow, the death year should be some time
after the 1900 census as Jabez and wife Sarah are found living with
daughter Clara and her husband Oliver P. Wharton.
Oliver P Wharton was born in May 1830 in Ohio. The 1900 census also has
them being married for only three years (abt 1897). This would suggest a
previous marriage and different mother to son Donald.
The 1910 Pasadena California census:
Shows both Oliver and Clara to have been married twice and Clara have
three children born to her of which two are still living.
