From: Roger/Marcia Eaton     E-mail     rgeaton@sky.net
     Hello My ancestor is Dr Loren/Lorin Bigelow. I tried to access his info from the web page but it says item not found. Dr. Loren is the son of Timothy. Dr. Loren's son was Johnson Miller Bigelow a farmer. His son was Warren Delos Bigelow b 1/29/1845 and was a self taught school teacher and principal in Illinois. I have some pages from history books with his info.
Also on my DeWitt side I am related to the Bigelows thru Joshua and Elizabeth Flagg Bigelow. Then 156 Mercy 3 Bigelow and Thomas Garfield. So I am a double Bigelow. Thanks  Marcia Hurlburt Eaton

Mary (Clarissa?) Bigelow, possible (new evid shows this is not a child of this Loren) daughter of Dr. Loren and Mary (Lewis) Bigelow (m.13 Oct 1885), was born 1820 in Westmoreland co., PA.  She married ca 1842 William Henry Argo, Jr., son of William Henry and wife, Jane (Marshall) Bigelow.  In 1850 census,William Henry and Clarissa (Bigelow) Argo lived on a farm in Astoria Twp. Fulton co., IL with their first four children. Four more were born after 1850.  They lived close to his parents.In the late 1850's they moved to Jersey co., IL where they lived the rest of their lives. Clarissa died 1863 and William in 1865.  All the children grew to adulthood and eventually, most of the first four moved to NE Kansas to settle.  The 1860 census shows William Jr.'s brothers living close to William Argo, Sr, Lavoshier Argo in Fulton co.,Astoria, IL and Joseph is in Fulton co.,Vermont.

SOURCE: Clarissa may be daughter of Dr. Loren Bigelow, son of Timothy, and born 1820 (the year we have for Mary's birth, I have put her here temporarily as Mary Clarissa or Clarissa Mary (Bigelow) Argo unless or until we learn differently to get an account into our data base.  In case of error, she would still be in this family.
Subject: BIGELOW, Clarissa, b. @1820==m. in Iowa==Wm. Argo
Looking for parents and family of Clarissa BIGELOW b. abt. 1820 married William ARGO 1842 in Van Buren County, Iowa.
Any help appreciated
