15923.483 Freedom 8 Bigelow, son of Ittia7 ( Freedom6 , Isaac5, Isaac4, Isaac3, Samuel2, John1) and Mary (HYZER) BIGELOW, was born in Madison co, OH on 31 March 1833 and on 13 June 1851 married Elizabeth Hobbes ( or Hobbs). She was the daughter of Joseph and Charlotte ( ___ ) Hobbes/Hobbs, and was born on 09 May 1833 in Madison co, OH. It is not known when Freedom and his family moved, but by 1880 they were living in Paulding co, OH and there Freedom eventually became blind. He died on 26 Jan 1908 at Latty, Paulding co, OH and was then a widower so we assume that she died some time after 1904 and before 1908.

On November 10 I accessed http://bigelow.simplenet.com/Freedom8.htm with
no difficulty, but today I tried it again and got an "Oops!" message. I'm
trying to check the marriage given of Freedom BIGELOW to Elizabeth HOBBES
on 13 June 1851. Broderbund's CD #236 gives Freedom's marriage on that
date in Franklin County, OH, but to Elizabeth FOX. Any ideas on
........Don Bigelow (deceased) created the page at http://bigelowsociety.com/Freedom8.html; and I copied most of his info. This information was from his own notes and The Bigelow Family Genealogy Book Vol. II Page 408-409; Don was a descendant of this family, so I would go with his notes.....................ROD 11/15/99

Looking for information on John C Bigelow and his wife Portia Quaife, thay were married in Butler County Ohio on the 1st of March 1879 if any one out there as any information please get in touch.
The only guess I would have is John Casper (9) Bigelow, no marriage listed. He was from Ohio and would have been 21 at time of that marriage. I do have Henry Quaife from Idaho marrying Belva Bigelow, with daughter Ethel Alice Quaife b 1908. See link below for John C.....................ROD
