Find a Grave
     Son of Elverton Pod Bigelow (b.2/13/1842 d.11/23/1893) and Mary Jane Betts (b.11-22-1845 d. 6-15-1931) from Eagle, Wisconsin. Sometime around 1875, Elverton and Mary Jane moved from Eagle, Wisconsin to Whiting, Monona Co. Iowa. They built a new house with green wood which shrank causing gaps and making the house too cold to live in. They moved into a dugout for that winter and that is where Budd Elverton Bigelow was born on November 18, 1875.
     (Headstone is incorrect). Married Annie Matilda Hughes on 09 September 1903 in Whiting, Monona County, Iowa. They had six children, one of which died in infancy before they moved to Waldron, Arkansas in the spring of 1917 where their last child was born. Budd died from mouth/throat cancer on 21 May 1933 at the age of 57 in Waldron Arkansas. According to my mother, Louise Bigelow Burr, he was the first person in Waldron to ever be embalmed, which they did in their home.
     At his request, he was buried in his military school uniform and was also taken by horse drawn wagon from their home to the cemetery, which was a great embarassment to my mother who was 16 at the time. Obtained from Wisconsin Veteran's Museum:

2010 notes:
Dear Rod,

Here are the pictures that I wrote to you about for Budd E Bigelow 91733.  I hope you can use them, 2 of them are really small.
The changes I would like to make are as follows:

17331: George Elverton  died  2 Sept 1991

17335:  Annie Irene’s husband should be Junious Alonzo Waid and the children’s last name needs to be changed to Waid as well.

17336:  Louisa Katrina’s husbands name should be spelled Glen and they were married 8 April 1942.

17337:  Esther Elizabeth died 20 Dec 2002

     We have this below with the name g a hughes on the inside of it. We have been trying to find information for years. Looking into family back ground I found an Annie Bigelow. My husbands grandmothers mother. Do you have any information on Mister Hughes?
We also have black and white pictures of the family that we do not know who they are, maybe you might.
