Does anyone know of this couple? They took in a niece in 1872 who I am trying to find more data on her parents. These are my few clues -
"Mary Irene Bigelow was born in Chicago, Ill., May 26, 1865, and was therefore nearly 59 years of age. In infancy her father died and her mother removed with her to St. Louis, Mo., the latter passing away when Irene was seven years of age. The child came to Manchester and resided with her uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. Alex. George, who gave her the love and care of a father and mother."
Then this census record -
1880 Census Place: Manchester, Delaware, Iowa

Appears that Alexander had died by 1880.
Mary's mother was Kier per death record.
Thanks, Becky T.
