Photo Number 1555

This is a small photo from Craig’s Collection.  This will be the last of Craig’s Collection for a bit.  I have lots of photographs from Minnesota Antique shops to show you.
Jim Biglow and wife Sept 5  1905 CP
Jim Biglow + wife
Love his tie!  On the back there is a date.  September 5, 1905.  That may be their wedding date.
Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again.
Update from Sue:
I found James R. and Phoebe Biglow in the 1910 census, living in Yellowstone County, Montana, School District 2. It states at the time of the April 15th census date they were married 4 years (which matches the Sept. 5 1905 presumed wedding date). He was a farmer, born in Montana. She was not employed, born in Illinois. They are both 32 at the time of the census. No children shown living with them. I then found them in 1930 in Pasadena California, and they had his sister, Lillian, age 25, living with them. She was, coincidently, born in 1905, as well. James is now a barber, and Phoebe, a music teacher in private homes. Digging a little further, I found this exact same picture on a family tree site, and messaged the owner and sent him a link to your site.

  1. I found James R. and Phoebe Biglow in the 1910 census, living in Yellowstone County, Montana, School District 2.

Digging a little further, I found this exact same picture on a family tree site, and messaged the owner and sent him a link to your site. He had the same amount of details I had, except he listed Lillian as a daughter. However, since she was not listed with them in 1910, and her parents' birthplaces are the same as James' parents' birthplace, I do believe she may be his sister. if I could find them in the 1920 census, that might shed more light on the situation. I'll did a bit deeper on Lillian.

  2. I did indeed find that Lillian is James sister, through multiple later censuses, Lillian's parents were quite old when they had her (about 49 and 52). There were multiple other siblings, with a 30+ age gap. Anyway, I found another private family tree that was connected to James sister, Adelaide. I sent a message and a link back to the blog.

  3. Connie & Sue - With her inquiry, Sue reminded me to check on the blog, which I have neglected for some months as I work on my book, one of those gunpowder and arrrg! "naval novels". I am really enjoying the research and keen observations of you, Connie, and your followers. I had to do some guessing when I was trying to identify these folks pictured in the collection, and I am happy with your better success through the blog. Full Circles, yea! -- Craig

  6. I'm looking forward to the Minnesota photos. My paternal ancestors settled in the Red Lake/Polk/Pennington area so I keep hoping that you will find some of my relatives photos in the antique shops around the area!
