Donald BIGELOW, son of Cecil & Zora (MAXWELL) Bigelow, CT & VT
I have more information on the Bigelow's connection to Richard Maxwell.His sister, Zora Pearl MAXWELL married Cecil BIGELOW who was the son of Gary M BIGELOW and brother of Henry and D.M..Cecil and Zora were married around 1919 and were in New London Co., CT, living with Cecil's father during the 1920 census (with no children.)
In 1930, Cecil and Zora are in Royalton, Windsor Co., VT with sons, Donald 9 and Cecil, Jr. 1 yr. 7 months. I do not think Cecil, Jr. lived to adulthood, there is a picture of Cecil, Zora and Donald when the boy is about 15 and written on the back is, "...their whole family."
That may be especially poignant because there may be the possiblity that they lost another son in the 1927 flood in Vermont.There is yet another picture in a group of the flooding with two boys of about 7 -8, that is labeled "One of these died in the flood."The writing, I believe was written years later by someone trying to identify photos in this box.That seems to have been done at least twice.The boy may not have been related, or the memory incorrect, of course... but we use whatever clues we can come up with!
I would like to find descendants of this family and share access to these photographs.
