16A43.115 Admiral Manley 8 BIGELOW,
son of Isaac William 7(
Horace 6 , Moses 5 , Moses 4 , Ebenezer 3, Joshua2, John1), and Rosina (ELLIOTT)
BIGELOW, was born 23 Jun 1860 in Parishville, NY. He died 4 Oct

Block 5, Grave 2. He married (1)
13 February 1879 Effie Jane Latson (b: 5 Mar 1860 Green Lake Co.,
WI)divorced ( see below). He married
(2) Amelia J. Peckett (Nettie Farrington) (?) born 1868, about 1888.
She died in Colfax, Washington on 14 May 1898 and is buried Lot 63, Block
2, Original Colfax Cemetery, Colfax, Washington. In 1899, A.M. married
Francis E. Mauk, born 16 Oct 1859, Martinsbury, Kentucky. In 1911,
she married (2) John E. Colledge. She died at Oakesdale, Washington
in January 14, 1935 (possibly funeral date), Lot 27, block 5, Grave 2.
Admiral Manley Bigelow sold pianos and organs in the Oakesdale/Colfax area.
He was also a photographer. He had a special wagon built that carried
the pianos. The wagon bed was lower than most wagons and made the
loading and unloading easier. My grandmother would often accompany
her father on deliveries and sales trips playing for customers. She
played the piano and accordion until she was in her 80s. Janet's grandmother's
older sisters knew nothing about their mother's birthplace or date, but
said she was 20 when she married A.M. and he was 28. Bertha and Myrtle were
born 1885 and 1887. Janet sends a family story about why Amelia had
two names. Her mother, a Boyington, married a Peckett and had three
children, Amy, Eddie and Amelia. She left Mr. Peckett but was not
able to care for the children so gave them to the Boyingtons, her parents.
Mrs. Peckett then married a Farrington, asked for her children back, but
the Boyingtons refused to return them until some time later. When they
were returned, Amelia took the name of Nettie Farrington and was called Nettie
for the remainder of her life. After Amelia's death, A.M. boarded his
three daughters with Francis Mauk in Rathdrum, Idaho. He wouod visit
his children and spend the night in Francis' home. Loral said Francis
'set her cap for him' during his visits but my grandmother said 'didn't look
good' for Francis to have a man sleeping in her home so they married.
After A.M.'s death, Francis was made guardian of perley, my grandmother.
Francis operated a boarding house and had a young male tenant that stuttered.
Perley thought her step-mother was pushing her to marry this young man.
She could remember her father telling her to never marry a man that would
embarrass her in public. She contacted her sister, Loral, who was married
and living in Helena, Montana. They sent her money for train fare from Oakesdale
to Spokane and met her there and took her to Helena to live with them.
She was sixteen at the time. Loral went to court and was made her
guardian. She lived with Loral until marriage to Melger Krous.
She knew Melger from Oakesdale because the Krouses farmed in that area.
Janet has family pictures taken by A.M. of them with their children.
One is of their family at Steptoe Butte, Washington, with the piano wagon.
She has a picture with notation in her grandmother's handwriting, "Uncle
Al on Daddy's side."

My family line is John, joshua, Ebenezer,
Moses, Moses, Horace, Isaac, Admiral. On the website you are missing
information on Admiral Manley's family. Admiral 1st married Effie
Jane Latson (b: 5 Mar 1860 Green Lake Co., WI) on the 13 Feb. 1879.
They had one child Cleopatra Bigelow born 19 Dec. 1879 in Clam Falls, WI.
They divorced. We have pictures of the piano wagon as well as a picture
of Manley (that is the name we have known him by) Effie and Cleopatra.
Cleopatra kept in touch with her father over the years and my grandmother
Sylvia was close to Pearley and Loral. If you have any additional
information or contacts with this family line please let me know.

My family line is John, Joshua, Ebenezer, Moses, Moses, Horace, Isaac,
Admiral, Perley, Vera. I am looking for more info on Issac & Rosina,
my gggrandparents. I know they had children other than my ggrandfather,
Admiral Manly, but I don't have any names, b, m, and d dates. After
Isaac's death in 1889 in Dayton, WA, Rosina went to MN where she died in 1900.
I have no information about her family, the Elliotts. I found that
the 'Bigelow boys' purchased Isaac's cemetery plot in WA. I also have
photos that my grandmother labeled as her 'aunt and uncles on Daddy's side
of the family.' Any information you can provide is appreciated. Janet
Enloe Great Falls, Montana
I have a picture that I would like to share with the descendents of Wilsie
W. Bigelow. Without your information I wouldn't have identified
the family. The photo is of a home and looks like it was taken around
1900. On the back is a printed gummed label with someone's hand-writing
reading "Residence of" and printed on the label is "W. W. BIGELOW, Druggist,
New Auburn, Minn." In my grandmother's handwriting is written, "Uncle."
If you think this is worthy enough please post on the BB.
Maybe someone would like a print. Thanks again. Janet Enloe
