Notes for BYRDE HAMILTON BIGGER:  Drafted, WWI

 

He registered for the draft in World War I in 1917 but does not appear on the 1920 census. He may have died in the war or the Spanish Flu epidemic of 1918 - 1920.

Census: 1901, Bradford, Jefferson, Colorado

 

Notes for JOSEPHINE AULT:

Josephine Ault was born in Nueces, Texas, during her parent's (Frank and Susan) short stay there. Josephine [Ault] Biggar married Byrd Hamilton Biggar on December 24, 1894, at Reed's Mill (the property between the Ault homestead and the Biggars). Three land patents were issued to Bigger or Biggar family members: J.R. (John), Anna, and Byrd. Anna was Byrd's mother. Lorenzo C. Biggar also appears on the land grant; he was another son of John. Byrd and Josephine farmed land in section 3 of T6-S, about 1 mile east of the cemetery. They had at least four children, of whom at least one died in infancy.

 

The 1920 census shows Josie (widowed) living with her brother-in-law, Joseph Biggar, and her children Thomas, Lois, and Nellie. Florence had already married, had a child, and died. By the 1930 census, Josie was living with daughter Lois (age 21) and son-in-law Adam Fraser (age 24), daughter Nellie (17), and her granddaughters Frances Acree (15) and Edna Acree (13).

 

The hill to the northeast of the cemetery is sometimes called Biggar Hill, after this family, but early on the Biggars were known more for the Switzer Lode Mine, near the present village of Fenders.

 

Very little information is available on the short life of Florence Acree. [Some sources spell the name 'Acre.'] Daughter of Byrd H. (1875 - after 1918) and Josephine (1878 - 1947) Biggar. Parents married in 1894. Died about the time of Spanish Flu, but DOD on the headstone is possibly questionable as the 1920 census shows her alive as of 1/8/1920. Husband information speculative; Frances and Edna grew up with Josephine Biggar (grandmother). Possibly Edna Acree was later Edna Lillian Cady - speculative. Likely relative Sarah J. Acree (1886 - 1914) is in Morrison Cemetery. Obituary published in Colorado Transcript 2/12/1920.

"It is uncertain when Bigger was born and or whether he was a native of NC. or MD. At the outbreak of the war, he may have been living in Baltimore or in Washington.  He is probably to be identified with the R. H. Bigger who is mentioned in a series of OR References as a "Lawyer arrested in Baltimore as a prisoner of State" Oct 16, 1861, for secretly recruiting for the "insurgent army". He was imprisoned successfully in Forts McHenry, Columbus, Lafayette, and Warren and was not released until Apr 15, 1862, or May 7, 1862, as noted by Randal McCavock (q.v.) a fellow prisoner at Fort Warren.

Bigger entered service as a Captain AQM, in Gen. John Greggs Brigade. He served with Gregg into early 1863 in MS, GA, and TN, although his appointment was not confirmed by the senate. He served with Gregg in Chicamauga but lost his position when Gregg was wounded. Gregg Recommended him in Aug 1864 as a Major QM., for General James Dearing's Cavalry Brigade in Danville, Virginia noting that Bigger had recently married in the CSA had two brothers killed in the war and another wounded and captured at Gettysburg.  His appointment was supported on Sept. 19, by Burton Harrison and Gen. Alexander Robert Lawton (q.v.). He served in Virginia in Dearing's staff and then joined that of W.P. Roberts on Feb. 25, 1865, as QM in the Cavalry division of W. H. F.  Lee. (q.v.)

Postwar Bigger lived in Hendersonville, NC, having married a Miss Davies of Augusta, GA. He died on Nov 13, 1888, in Chattanooga as a result of jumping from the third story of a burning Hotel.
