Thomas J. Bigley (1851-1925), Marshall County, Indiana

Working on filling in some gaps in my database by utilizing the "Indiana Marriages, 1811-1959" database at to see what updates and corrections I could find.

Thomas J. Bigley (1851-1925) was the son of Edward Bigley and Amelia Fisher.  I found this record of his marriage to Sarah J. Benedict on October 13, 1875 in Marshall County, Indiana.  Prior to searching this database, I did not have her maiden name.

"Indiana, Marriages, 1811-1959," index and images, FamilySearch ( : accessed 23 Jun 2013), Thomas J Bigley and Sarah J Benedict, 1875.

Thomas and Sarah were the parents of at least three children.  Have only cursory census information on the family in Maxinkuckee, Marshall County, Indiana.

Thomas was Eileen's maternal first cousin four times removed.  Her common ancestors were Daniel Fisher and Susannah Reeves.
