15336.571      Cornelius 8 BIGELOW, son of George 7 ( Cornelius 6 , Paul 5 , Cornelius 4, Samuel 3, Samuel 2, John1 and Margaret (KERR/CARR) BIGELOW, was born about 1829 in Chatham township, Argenteuil, Quebec. His father died in 1845 and Cornelius was responsible for the support of his mother and siblings until his mother married again. On 19 January 1852 he married his first cousin, Jane Persis Bigelow (15336.581) who was born about 1837. The 1861 census states that Cornelius was 36 and Jane 24 years at their next birthday, while the 1871 census says 40 and 39 respectively. No records have been found to confirm either birth years. Jane died 25 July 1878 Pine Hill, Chatham twp, Argenteuil, Quebec, and on 28 April 1882 Cornelius married Mrs. Sarah (McMeekins) Gould, but as the combined families were not compatible, a separation took place. Cornelius farmed in the Pine Hill and Dalesville areas of Chatham township. He died of a sudden heart attack at the home of his son, George, on 14 April 1901 at Dalesville. Both Cornelius and Jane are buried in Edina cemetery there. The stone has birth of Cornelius as 1819 and his wife as Jane Mac Adoo (1832-1878)

 Hi I am trying to find out about my great grandmother Sarah Carr who married John Calder in 1845 at St. Mungos church in Cushing Quebec. They lived in Dalesville. I cant find anything on the Carrs or Kerrs but I keep coming up with Margaret
Carr who married George Bigelow and Jane Carr who married George Henry Bigelow. I can't help but thinking that there is a relationship between these Carrs, Bigelows and the Calders. I also know that a James Calder who lived with the Johanna Heatlie and James Calder was really a Bigelow. Do you know anything about these Carrs that might help me with my research. I have found that Sarah Carrs father was named Francis and mother was Mary and I know of one  brother named Bernard and that they were RC from Ireland Maybe Cork.  Help!!!! Thanks   Jean Calder Zinck
