FORGE, October 1978, Vol.7, #4, p.78 has William Bigelow, 9th generation, of Kimberly, Idaho, who celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary 17 Jul 1978, with wife and both their families. Among those present were Bill's sisters, Merle (Bigelow) Finck and Shirley (Bigelow) Sewell.  See Vol.1, #1 and articles after 1978 for fascinating story of 2 Rev. soldiers and their migrations.
This baby might have been 'still born'...but when doing temple work, the
temple sealer was impressed that we should seal her to her parents.  Therefore,
we did.  She is buried in the Woodlawn Cemetery in the old section, up high on
the hillside (west side of cemetery) in an unmarked grave.  We have hunted for
it but could not find any markings.  They were poor and could not afford to buy
a regular lot marker.  There was supposed to have been a simple stick type
marker but back in the 40's and 50's when we searched, nothing could be found.
