  • Notes 
    • Herman Leo Bigelow (born 1896)

      This name is not clear in the 1900 US Federal Census (Yanceyville Township, Caswell County, North Carolina) and looks something like "Hannon." That record gives his birth year as 1892. However, his social security application in 1937 gives a birth year of 1896, which will be used in this database. The Bigelow family advises that his name actually was Harmon, but that he changed it to Herman, which will be used in this database.
