  Phony Benoni: A statement by him in the capacity of President of the Minnesota State Chess Association is signed <"Alex T. Bigelow">. No indication of whether his name is actually "Alexander", but there is no period after "Alex".

"Minneapolis Journal", February 2, 1895.

  Phony Benoni: "Alexander Thompson Bigelow" is definitely our man. "Biography of Minnesota" (Chicago, 1900), p.437-438, confirms you information and gives birthdate of April 5, 1841.

Civil War veteran; left practice in Boston for Bismarck, Dakota in July, 1876 for reasons of health, thence to St. Paul in October, 1884. Married Edna A. Kelley, a native of Marshall, Wisconsin, on November 26, 1883. No mention of children.

  Tabanus: could be him? He lives in Seabreaze, Volusia, Florida in 1920 (as dentist) still together with Edna.

  Phony Benoni: The scalawag! No wonder he left town and headed for the Dakotas. Who does that for their health?

Hard to believe it's not him; the name and chronology are too much of a coincidence.

  Stonehenge: He died in 1923:
