Illinois marriage index has: "Electa H. ABBOTT m. Chauncy BIGFORD, 30 Nov 1845, Kane County, IL."Chauncy J. W. BICKFORD and wife Electa (ABBOTT) BICKFORD later settled in Floyd Co., IA.

I am seeking any info that would link LUTHER A. BICKFORD b. 1847 (IL?) as a probable fifth (and first born) child to Electa (ABBOTT) BICKFORD and Chauncy J.W. BICKFORD.Luther A. BICKFORD was my ggrandfather.I have family photo of "Uncle Sim Bickford from Rockford, Iowa."Said to be an uncle of my grandmother Lutheria "Lutie" (BICKFORD) FOOTE, only known child of Luther A. BICKFORD.I think Simeon BICKFORD and "Sim" BICKFORD are one in the same, and was the brother of Luther A BICKFORD.Also I have found graves of Chauncy & Electa (ABBOTT) BICKFORD and Sim (headstone reads Sim, not Simeon) and Mary (SIDO) BICKFORD - all interred in same cemetary, close together, in Rockford, Floyd Co., IA.
I would so greatly appreciate any info on Electa ABBOTT's parents/siblings?Chauncy BICKFORD(BIGFORD) parents/siblings? Birth place of Luther A. BICKFORD?
