Albert's son Elmer C Bigelow was a Congressional Medal of Honor recipient:

Birth: Jul. 12, 1920 Hebron, McHenry County, IL
Death: Feb. 15, 1945, Philippines

World War II Navy Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served during World War II on board the USS Fletcher as Water Tender 2nd Class. On February 14, 1945, the USS Fletcher was hit by an enemy shell and was set afire while minesweeping operations for landings on Manila Bay's Corregidor Island. He fought the blaze and tried to save the ship but was badly wounded and died the next day. He was then awarded the Medal of Honor for his heroism.

Elmer C Bigelow's findagrave memorial is #8544926.

I am unable to connect Elmer Bigelow to his father.
