Additional Comments:
Joseph Bigham, Jr. of Donnellson, Montgomery Co., Illinois, kept family records in a History of the Greek Revolution, compiled from Official Documents of the Greek Government, by John L. Comstock, M.D. New York: William W. Reed & Co., 1828. Some of it is hard to read or actually missing due to the edges crumbling from the ravages of time. In the book is written that it is the property of Joseph Bigham Junr. Bought in autum annodamini, 1829. Price $2.
