Mariah (Maria) Margaret Kline, born October 12, 1880, lived a very brief life and passed away before the photo above was taken.  She married Noah Edison Bigham (1876 - 1964) on October 7, 1898, just a few days short of her 18th birthday.  She enjoyed just four months of married life, as she died on February 15, 1899.  The cause of her death was not recorded.  She was buried in the West Pleasant Hill Cemetery among other Kline family members.

Noah remarried to Mable Romig and they had seven children together.
Noah moved to Nebraska where his marriage to Mable took place, and then South Dakota, according to the censuses.  At the time of his World War I draft registration in 1918, he was in Mud Butte, Mead County, South Dakota.  Information supplied on the registration indicated that he was of medium build and height with light gray eyes and black hair.  He was 42 years old at the time.  It was also noted that he was missing his right hand.

  Ultimately, they settled in Cattaraugus County, New York. Noah was buried in Delevan Cemetery there.
