Notes for COLONEL CHARLES PURCELL BIGGER:

 

Colonel Charles P. Bigger, commandant of Lee Camp, Soldiers’ Home, a gallant soldier during the war, and a popular citizen, committed suicide yesterday afternoon. He went out to the barn, closed the door behind him, and fired two bullets into his brain. He died in three minutes. Farmer Henry was just outside of the barn, but when he rushed in after hearing the shots fired in rapid succession, he found Colonel Bigger in a dying condition, and he expired soon after Adjutant General Caldwell reached him. Mental unbalance, resulting from prolonged ill health, was the cause of the rash act. Colonel Bigger was a physical wreck, and his mental condition for some time had been a source of anxiety to his friends. He could not sleep, had lost his memory, and had been on furlough for three months. He attempted to shoot himself Thursday while in the home office, but the pistol was not loaded and was soon gotten away from him.

Colonel Bigger was sixty-two years old and a brother of the late Colonel John Bell Bigger, so long clerk of the House of Delegates. He was born in the old homestead of Chief Justice Marshall and having been born on the anniversary of the Richmond. Blues was christened in the famous punch bowl of the Blues, which was destroyed in the Spotswood Hotel fire. He served through the war with the Blues and was severely wounded in front of Petersburg. He was superintendent of the city almshouse for ten years and had been commandant of the Soldiers’ Home for some years. He was also engaged in the hotel business for several years. Seven children survive him.

Notes for HARRISON E. BIGGERS:

son of William and Margaret (nee Thomas) Bigger, was born in Marion county, Kentucky, on February 3, 1812. His parents were both natives of Virginia, and his father was a colonel in the War of 1812. Mr. Bigger grew to manhood in his native county and received his education in the old log school house common in those days. He was reared on a farm and followed that calling until 1844, when he removed to Linn county, Missouri, and settled five miles west of Linneus, being one of the earliest pioneers of that section, and somewhat noted as a hunter. He was an expert at killing wild turkeys but had poor success in shooting deer. After wounding them they generally managed to escape. He had one of the poorest guns in the county, and his neighbours actually called a meeting and voted to take his gun from him if he did not do better execution with it. Mr. Bigger generally hunted with William Kirby. The latter would kill deer while Mr. B. would keep a keen lookout for snakes, he being always in great dread of rattlesnakes. In 1859, the subject of this sketch removed to his farm of 168 acres, upon which he still resides. In 1865, he was elected judge of the Linn county court, and held that office for eight years, with great credit and efficiency. Mr. Bigger has had three wives. The first time, in 1833, he was married to Miss Lucinda Crews, daughter of Gideon and Elizabeth Crews, of Marion county, Kentucky. She died in March 1858. By this union, there were five children, two of whom are living, Charles W., a prominent lawyer at Linneus, and Clellen G., the present county surveyor. Mr. B. was married the second time, in 1860, to Mrs. Clarinda Fowler, formerly a Miss Clarinda Gillespie, daughter of John and Rebecca (nee Watson) Gillespie, of West Virginia. She died on February 18, 1878. By this union, there were four children, all living, and named William H., Cicero, Socrates, and Fannie F. Mr. B. was again married on August 20, 1880, to Mrs. Margaret Brown, formerly a Miss Hardwick, daughter of John and Smily (nee Shrause) Hardwick, who was born and reared in Kentucky.
