Don Mangum Bigler was the eldest son of Jacob G. Bigler and Armelia Caroline Mangum Bigler. He was a farmer who also engaged in prospecting.

On October 6, 1894, The Park Record newspaper reported that Don Bigler and three other partners had struck gold the previous spring while prospecting in the Clifton mining district on the Utah Nevada border south of Wendover.

His three partners were Henry T. Goldsmith, and two of his brothers-in-law, Eugene H. Henriod and Frederic Henriod.

Their four mining claims were: the Midas, Lucky May, Golden Eagle, and June Bug. The newspaper reported that they hit a rich vein of gold that was two feet thick in both the Midas and Lucky May and that the mines also yielded both silver and lead.

He became wealthy, but became an invalid from working underground and suffered from paralysis. He spent most of the fortune seeking a cure for his illness and apparently died of "miner's lung" when he was only 51 years old.
