Adelia Bigelow born 17 Aug 1833 in New York State. Married Henry Fisher on 25 Dec 1852 in Livingston County, Michigan. Died 6 Aug 1902 in Morrice, Shiawassee County, Michigan. Looking to find information on parents and any brothers or sisters: Father: Bond Kenyon Bigelow and mother Belinda Brooks.

159B3.3111       Michael Bond 9 Fisher, son of Adeline (Adelia) 8 BIGELOW,   Bond Kenyon 7 ( Samuel 6 , Bond 5 , Elisha 4, Isaac 3, Samuel 2, John1 and Henry Fisher, was born 15 Sep 1855 in Cohoctah, Livingston co., MI. He married in 1879 Clara Ophelia Dean.  She was born  6 Oct 1859 in Howell, Livingston co., MI. She was the daughter of Samuel and Jerusha Ann (Youngs) Dean. The 1880 Census of Osceola, Livingston co., MI show that Michael and Clara and
small son, Willis were living with their cousin, Samuel Fisher in Osceola. Later he divorced Clara Ophelia Dean.  By 1900 he was divorced.  In 1920 lived in Shiawassee co., MI.  Census only said "he is married when he really is divorced.  Tuscola, MI changed name to Cohoctah in 1857.  Death certificate information is given by Mrs. Fred Wilkinson of Perry, MI.  Certificates state that he is married to Clara Dean Fisher?  Did they remarry?  He was a farmer, son of Henry Fisher b. NY.  mother:  Adelia Bigelow b. OH.  Buried at Sanford cemetery July 30 1928.  Information from Jane and Allen Fisher 9/7/96.
After divorce, Clara took two of the three children, Clarence and Alice out west.  In 1910 she was living in Kingston, Shoshgone co., ID.  She probably died in Idaho, and never remarried.  Divorce must have been earlier than thought.  Last child is born 1884 and records show they divorced by 1900 and children living as boarders in other locations in Livingston co., MI.  Clara is not on the Michigan 1900 census.  In 1920 Clara was spelling her name on census as Fischer at age 60 living in Whitman Co., WA with daughter Alice and son-in-law Percy Woodruff.  Clara also claimed she was a widow.  1920 census information found on roll #1821944, Vol.50, #Ed 149, Sheet 3 line 82.  Son Willis Fisher and family moved to Idaho around 1921.  Maybe Clara went to live near them after her daughter Alice died.  This would explain why we are told she died in Cottonwood, ID. Idaho State Historical Society states Clare Fisher died 1953 and is buried at Prairie View Cem. in Grangeville, Idaho co., ID. Burial was handled by county of Idaho. Her death date is given as 28 Jun 1953 Cottonwood, Idaho co.,ID, and buried as above. Michael died 27 Jul 1928 in Deerfield,Livingston co.,MI.

I am trying to find information on this woman.  She is my gg grandma.  We believe she was born and married somewhere in Ohio before marrying her second husband (who's last name was Fisher) and moving to the Hesperia area in Michigan.  Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated!
