MARK AND ASENATH PATTON BIGLER FAMILY by Eugene Bigler The Biglers were among the first settlers in what was later to become known as Collinston. Some of the Biglers moved from Farmington and took up permanent residence in 1862 and spent the winter of 1862-3 in a hillside dugout by the spring just south of where the Ruth Jensen home is presently located. Apparently the Biglers had been coming up from Farmington for several years to farm and graze cattle during the summer months. Stories have it that some of the soldiers returning from Connor's battle with the Indians near Preston, Idaho, in the winter of 1863 stopped at the Bigler home for help. Mark Bigler was born July 27, 1832, in Virginia and died in Collinston 10 October 1889. He was the third child of Jacob Bigler and Sarah Cunningham. Mark was about 16 years old when he arrived in Utah, where the family settled in Farmington. Asenath Patton was born in Summerset Shire, England, 19 July 1839. She accepted the Mormon religion in Bristol, England, in 1861. Three years later she came to America and crossed the plains to Utah in the Company of Thomas Ricks, and walked a great part of the distance. In 1864 she came to Hampton's Ford to cook and serve meals to travelers through the area. Mark married Asenath Patton on March 5, 1864, in Salt Lake City, and they raised their family in Collinston. They had nine children born as follows: Mark Samuel Bigler, June 4, 1865; Jacob Adam Bigler, February 17, 1867; Julia Elizabeth Bigler, February 16, 1869; Charles L. Bigler, February 24, 1871 (died as a child); Edward Bigler, October 2, 1872; William Bigler, April 1, 1876; Sarah Ann Bigler, April 16, 1878; George Amasee Bigler, October 12, 1881; and Vance Bigler, September 19, 1886. All the children except Mark Samuel and Jacob Adam were born in Collinston. Asenath died in Collinston on 30 January 1920. Mark Samuel Bigler spent his early life on the farm in Collinston. He married Mary Alice Davis on 24 November 1897 in Montpelier, Idaho. Mark spent his married life in Idaho and died in St. Anthony, Idaho, in 1931. Jacob (Jake) Adam Bigler married Agnes (Aggie) Standing in Collinston on 29 November 1894, and took up ranching and farming land acquired from the Standing estate at Hampton's Ford on the Bear River. Jake and Aggie spent their entire married life at the old Hampton Ford. They had four children born in Collinston as follows: Ralph Jacob Bigler, 25 February 1899 (died at age 16); Gertrude Murile Bigler, 5 August 1900; Lawrence Odell Bigler, 20 April 1902; and Clarence Vance Bigler, 30 October 1907. Jake died in 1952, and Agnes died in 1938. Sarah Ann Bigler spent her early life on the farm in Collinston. She married Hyrum Jensen on 27 June 1901 and continued to live in Collinston where Hyrum ran a general merchandise store. They had four children: Karma, Elmer, Mark Peter, and LeGrand (Dick). Sarah and Hyrum later moved to Garland where Sarah died in 1965. Julia Bigler spent her early life in Collinston. She married Timothy Covert on October 13, 1897, and spent most of her married life in Malad, Idaho, where she died in 1960. Edward Bigler lived his entire life in Collinston. He married Lenora Beeton on 9 April, 1901, and farmed land in Collinston west of the railroad tracks by the irrigation ditch from the Pack/Barnard spring. They had two daughters: Mable and Marie. Ed died in 1948. George Bigler lived in Collinston his entire life. He was a farmer by occupation and never married. He drowned in the Bear River in August, 1929, apparently after his horse stepped into a deep hole. He went down to the Bear River to sein for fish. After he located a big pool extending out from the river, he started to ride his horse across the pool to determine the depth of the water. Some distance out the horse came to a jumpoff in the pool. As the horse slipped off the embankment, the rider pulled up on the reins, throwing the horse over backwards. George was thrown into the water. During the struggle that followed, the rider was forced under the water twice, failing to come up the second time. His body was recovered about two hours later by relatives and citizens of the community. An examination of the body disclosed a bruise on his chest, which was thought to have been caused by the saddle horn which likely struck him as the animal was struggling in the water. He was 47 years old at the time of his death. William Bigler never married. He was injured in an accident in his early years and spent his life at the old Bigler house in Collinston. Will died in 1943. Vance Bigler married Leah Rebekah Smith on 26 December 1904. He spent most of his married life in Idaho where he died in 1964.

Life timeline of Vance Bigler

Vance Bigler was born in 1886
Vance Bigler was 5 years old when Thomas Edison patents the motion picture camera. Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
Vance Bigler was 19 years old when Albert Einstein publishes his first paper on the special theory of relativity. Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. He is best known to the general public for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2, which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation". He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect", a pivotal step in the development of quantum theory.
Vance Bigler was 31 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
Vance Bigler was 42 years old when Walt Disney character Mickey Mouse premieres in his first cartoon, "Plane Crazy". Walter Elias Disney was an American entrepreneur, animator, voice actor and film producer. A pioneer of the American animation industry, he introduced several developments in the production of cartoons. As a film producer, Disney holds the record for most Academy Awards earned by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations. He was presented with two Golden Globe Special Achievement Awards and an Emmy Award, among other honors. Several of his films are included in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
Vance Bigler was 53 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
Vance Bigler was 58 years old when World War II: The Allied invasion of Normandy—codenamed Operation Overlord—begins with the execution of Operation Neptune (commonly referred to as D-Day), the landing of 155,000 Allied troops on the beaches of Normandy in France. The Allied soldiers quickly break through the Atlantic Wall and push inland in the largest amphibious military operation in history. The Allies of World War II, called the United Nations from the 1 January 1942 declaration, were the countries that together opposed the Axis powers during the Second World War (1939–1945). The Allies promoted the alliance as a means to control German, Japanese and Italian aggression.
Vance Bigler was 71 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
Vance Bigler died in 1964 at the age of 78
