Comments:
I found a post asking for information on the family of Michael Higgins and his wife Agnes Pedersen (Agnethe Pedersdatter Holum), who lived in Kragness, Western Minnesota, and had 6 children. The poster's address is no longer active, but her name was Audrey. I am hoping to contact anyone descended from this couple, as I have photographs of Agnes and her sisters, and family information to share. Please write to me if you have information on this family!

I have submitted a few questions regarding my Higgins family history, but have no idea where the answers, if any, show up. Anyone with information on James Higgins and Bridget Finneran Higgins, both from Ireland, married in Boston, MA in 1860, please email me. James father was Patrick and his mother was Ellen Higgins, can't find out her maiden name. James and Bridget lived, raised their family and died in Boston, MA, she in 1892 and James on Aug. 20, 1919.


Many thanks,

Where did your Higgins ancestor come from? unable to find out what part of western Ireland they came from
Was your Higgins ancestor famous ? no
Comments:
I am looking for the county in Ireland that my g-grandfather, James Higgins is from, also his date of birth, if possible. I have had no luck in finding out anything other then he was born circ 1835, parents were Patrick Higgins and Ellen Higgins. James came to Boston in 1860 and married Bridget Finneran that same year. On one census, there is an Ellen Kenney living with James and his family...she was born in Ireland in 1795...could be James's mother, but why the last name of Kenney. I hate to think I can only go back two generations in researching James Higgins...any help is appreciated.

Sincerely,

Judy Higgins Parker

Where did your Higgins ancestor come from? Ireland (?)
Comments:
My grandfather was Ambry Glenn Higgins. He was born in Holly Springs GA @ 1880. His father was Frank G. Higgins and his mother was Rutha Rebecca Higgins. His father's brother was named William Higgins (wife Martha and daughters Lucy and Fannie) His brothers were named Osgood and Kellor.He married Margaret Melissa (Leila) Cline who was from Canton, Ga. I cannot find any reference to their origins except that they MIGHT have come from Ireland. I hope because of the somewhat unusual names (Ambry, Osgood, Kellor & Rutha) that someone might be more familiar with the family. Any help would be appreciated.

Was your Higgins ancestor famous ? Engineer & Hemoeopathic Doctor
Comments:
My great-grandfather Sylvester Burr Higgins travel to Colombia as Engineer to build bridges. He also graduated as Hemoeopathic doctor in Bogota, Colombia in 1868.
He married Emilia Macias, my g-grandmother and had 2 sons. One died young. My grand father Enrique Higgins Macias was born in Barranquilla, Colombia in 187O. Sylvester B. Higgins wrote 2 books "Culebras y Reptiles" published in Bogota in 1870 and "Ophidian" published in New York in 1973. "Ophidians" is still used at several Universities in U.S. and it was reprinted by Cornell University Library in 1905.
The family in Colombia has very little informatiion on Sylvester and his family in U.S. I understand that he had been married earlier in Greensboro, NC and had 2 daughters. According to the 1850 U.S. census his father was Aaron Burr Higgins.
I have not been able to find information on Sylvester B. Higgins
we know he travelled a lot to other countries.
I will appreciate any help.
Thank you

Where did your Higgins ancestor come from? I'm not sure
Comments:
I am looking for any information regarding Joseph M. Higgins(1885-1941). He is my great-grandfather. He married Elizabeth Catherine Nugent and had three boys, Daniel (1922), Richard (1924), and John Bernard (Jack)(1928.
Jack is my grandfather and he said that he believes that Joseph's father may have owned or worked at a bar or tavern in Lima, Ohio. Joseph was a military man(navy?) and died in a veteran's hospital in Ross County, Ohio. Other than that my grandfather knows very little about his father's family. Anything to help me would be greatly appreciated.

please note that e-mail will change soon and that I am writing a book incl. the Higgins family...I have four pre-1700 ancestors and grandson has a Mayflower lineage...10 ancestors recognized by DAR and SAR and SOR proven can be reached thru daughter watson_c_m@gmail.com until new e-mail established...do not follow Katherine Chaplin Higgins book because NYG@B found errors and my grandson's lineage includes the founder of that organization. There is an earlier book she used as a source that is better.

Where did your Higgins ancestor come from? Born in Tacuma? nr Seattle
Was your Higgins ancestor famous ? possibly from wealthy English Family
Comments:
The story is that my Grandfathers father "ran off" with a May Mackay from Edinburgh, (originally from Sutherland)
They had two boys, William G Higgins and Rob Higgins, believed to have been born near Seattle c1890-1900.
Something went wrong and the boys and mother returned to Edinburgh where they were brought up near to Juniper Green.
Both lads went to Singapore/Malaya in the 1920's.

William returned to Scotland after being interned in Changi prison.He had married my Grandmother Emily Sanderson In Singapore c 1925.He died c1965.

Any help in tracing his parents or what happened to his brother would be appreciated.

Where did your Higgins ancestor come from? Roscommon
Comments:
My Great Grandfather Thomas Higgins b. 1866/67 was from Roscommon. His father was Thomas Higgins, a Master Boot Maker. His mother Mary emigrated to England around 1870 as a widow wtih her son - no other children. I have not been able to find her maiden name. I am trying to trace where in Roscommon they were from. Family lore says something like Jamestown or Greystown but that doesn't sound too Irish?
Any help would be appreciated. Would ships list be my best option?

John Higgins and Bridget McCormick came from Ireland in about 1854, bringing with them baby Patrick (Patsy). They married on arrival in Leicestershire and gave birth to John, Mary and Michael. Bridget died of Consumption, swiftly followed by baby Michael.
John and his two sons worked as miners at Whitwick on the Leicestershire coalfields.
Bridget's brother Patrick McCormick also came here and married Ellen Hurney.
John's brother Michael came here to the mines with his wife Mary Walsh and daughter Bridget. I have found the baptism of little Bridget at Annaghdown on 30.1.1853.
Ishould say that Bridget and Patrick were the children of Michael McCormick, a husbandman.
John and Michael were the sons of Patrick Higgins, also a husbandman.

I have a lovely 11x14 picture containing cameo pictures of several men who worked for a company, most likely some kind of skilled trade regarding valves/steel works. In the middle of the picture, is one of "J Fellows" with a banner under it and the year 1865. My great grandfather, J.T.HIGGINS, is also shown in a cameo with the year 1885 next to his name. The banner at the top of the picture says "OUR QUARTER CENTUARY CRAFTSMEN". This picture was taken in Boston, MA as that is where J.T. HIGGINS lived and raised a family. Any information re this picture and the name of the company would be most appreciated.

Was your Higgins ancestor famous ? No
Comments:
My oldest Higgins relative is John Higgins. He was born in 1881 in Canandaigua, New York. His parents we still don't know who they are yet. It was said that he was placed in an orphanage when he was a young child somewhere in Erie, PA. At 18, he was said to ran away from the orphanage and made it to Bradford, McKean County, Pennsylvania where he stayed and raised his family. There is a story that was passed down that a gentleman came to his house in Eldred and was telling John that someone had died and left him money in a will. John refused the money because he didn't want anything to do with them since they didn't want him. There is one family that we think he might belong to, but we are waiting to find a will on the person to see what it says.

Comments:
Looking for any information regarding my great grandfather James Higgins, there are few details that i can find regarding his life but i have been informed that he died young, around 32 in Liverpool and also his death may have been related to alcohol and this is the reason his life was apparently mentioned not very often.

Any help would be great, thanks John

Comments:
I can't email the Higgins site manager because I am on WWW email via clearwire and am not set up for the standard email program.

I am seeking the marriage of my great, great, great grandparents,

John Higgins and Elizabeth _________ m. circa 1800-1802 of Smith/Jackson Co., TN.

their first known child was born 29 Nov 1802 in Jackson Co., TN and a tax record is noted for John that same year in Jackson Co. TN.

I've looked at the online marriage indexes for TN and VA, to no avail, they aren't there.

Elizabeth "Sr." is in my direct maternal lineage, so I am interested in learning her ancestry both for genealogy and for dna research.

you will find her in various genealogies as Elizabeth "Black", but this is incorrect, I have since proved that the ancestress with that surname is my other maternal great, great, great grandmother, Cynthia Black of NC.

many thanks for helping me find this marriage record.

My grandfather was a Raap. His mother was marie or mary gerlach who died either when he was born or while in infancy. They were in Baltimore which is not far from Frederic. I am having a hard time tracing them. My great grandfather is living with his mother in law, mary or marie gerlach in baltimore in 1900. my grandfather was just a few months old and motherless. louis raap (raaf in 1900 census in baltimore) shows a mary gerlach being his mother in law from bavaria, germany. she was born in 1845 and came to the us in 1848. she married or is living with john gerlach from bavaria in the 1880 us census in baltimore and that he was a tailor. john was born abt 1832. I found 5 of their children. by 1900, most of the children past away. i didn't know if we may be related or you have info on yhese gerlachs also spelled gerlock.

Where did your Higgins ancestor come from? Vicinity of Boyle, Co Roscommon, Ireland
Comments:
I've traced back to my Great grandfather, Patrick Higgins, thought to be born abt 1829 in or near Boyle, Co Roscommon. Known (and sourced) facts are that he married Ellen McDermottroe of Copse, Co Roscommon in the Roman Catholic church in Boyle in 1853. At least two children were baptised in that church - Anne in 1854 and Catherine in 1859 (it appears that a son, Daniel, was born and died sometime between 1854 and 1863. The last child born in Ireland was my grandfather, Edward, who was born in the home of Ellen's brother, Edward McDermottroe, of Copse. At the time, Patrick was already in New York City. Civil Registration for son Edward states that his father was a licensed publican. I have been able to trace the McDermottroe side of the family back but have no knowledge of my ggrandfather's place of birth or of his parents or siblings. Patrick's family followed to New York City in 1865 and then on to Illinois almost immediately.

Since Boyle is so close to the border of Sligo, there is a possibility that he may have come from that area or from the area around Boyle in Co Roscommon.

It is also known that there were related Higgins' family, left behind in New York, possibly NYC but I have NO knowledge of them.

Was your Higgins ancestor famous ? famous for being a higgins of course :-)
Comments:
My information is sketchy but here it is...

My grandfather was Daniel Higgins who was married to a Margaret Cuddigan. Daniel was the only sibling to stay in cork. They had 8 children, all remained in ireland, Ellen, Michael, Thomas, Peggy, Carmel, Phillip, Patrick & Donie.

Daniels brothers & sisters names were James, John, Phillip, Johanna (Casey) and Mary (unsure about that last name). They all emigrated, so most of this Higgins clan are in the USA.

James M Higgins(b 06/05/1869 - d 22/05/1947). James was married to a Catherine Parker (b 24/10/1872 - d 13/03/1938)
James & Catherine had 2 sons, James M Higgins jr & Phillip H Higgins. There was also 6 grandchildren, one of whom may have been called Kevin. James is buried in St Francis Cemetery, Pawtucket.

If anybody can add to this information, particularly from the Providence, Rhode Island area, it would be great.

Hello
I'm looking for anyone who is researching JAMES HIGGINS born about 1841. He is on the 1901 Irish Census at UGGOOL, KILMOVEE, County MAYO with wife BRIDGET aged 50 (but maybe should be 60)
On the 1911 Irish Census BRIDGET is a Widow aged 70 still living in UGGOOL KILMOVEE County MAYO. She has a Grandson JOHN HIGGINS aged 7 years living with her who was born in England.
My Uncle JOHN HIGGINS who was born in 1903 at Prescot Lancashire was missing from my Grandfather JAMES HIGGINS'S family on the 1901 UK Census and I am wondering if it is him with his Grandmother on the 1911 Irish Census.
JAMES & BRIDGET HIGGINS may have been my G Grandparents.
I know my Grandfather's father was JAMES HIGGINS (a Farmer)

Where did your Higgins ancestor come from? Wexford, Sligo Ireland/Boston MA
Comments:
My great-grand father, James Higgins, arrived in the U. S. from Wexford/Sligo county,during the Civil War era and settled in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston, MA. I do not know who James married, but I do know my grandfather, John Timothy HIggins, was his oldest son. Another son was Thomas and a sister named Mary. John Timothy Higgins married Delia L. Murphy and also lived in Dorchester. My father, James Francis Higgins, was their oldest child along with a brother, John J. HIggins, Mary Agnes Higgins and George Andrew Higgins, S. J. I know very little about this branch of Higgins'; any information would be welcomed.

Sincerely,

Judy Higgins Parker

I'm still looking for information on John and Peter Higgins - father and son. Peter was born about 1840 in New York, but I have no information on John and can't find him in any census after 1850. I know of no siblings for either John or Peter. Peter married Phoebe Flesher in Illinois in 1867. The only clue that John was Peter's father is that is what was stated on Peter's death certificate. No Mother's name was listed.

Comments:
I should have been more specific in my last comments. I am looking for a John Higgins who supposedly came to NY in the late 1830's or early 1840's with or without wife of unknown name. Their son, Peter Higgins was born in NY around 1940. This from Peter's death certificate. I find a John and Mary listed in the NY 1860 census with a Peter age 19 and someone called Aushar age 16. I can't verify that these are who I am looking for. I can't find John, Mary or Aushar again. I know that Peter was married to Phoebe Flesher in Chatsworth, IL in 1867 and that they had 7 children - Elizabeth, John, Nellie, Adelia, William (my grandfather), James Robert, and Charles, all born in easern IL.
How Peter got to Illinois is a mystery also what became of John.
Any help would be appreciated.

We are looking for several Higgins family members or anyone who can give us info. My husband's father's name at birth was Joseph Richard Higgins. On his birth certificate his father is listed as Earl Lois Higgins 28 years old in 1938 when Joseph was born. Earl is listed as born in Charleston WV. We at this point can't find an Earl Higgins in WV. We did find an Earl Higgins born in Canton Ohio 1910 who's father was Jefferson Higgins, Jefferson is listed as being 48 years old in 1910 that would make his birth about 1862. Jefferson Higgins was supposed to have been born in Canton Ohio too. We are trying to find Joseph biological father's family. Joseph changed his name before he joined the army to Savage since he was raised by an aunt and uncle by that name. Please email me if you have any info on any of the people named above.

Where did your Higgins ancestor come from? from Ireland to Syracuse, New York to Minnesota
Comments:
I am a descendant of a John Higgins, born about 1836 in Syracuse, New York. His father was a Thomas Higgins, born in Ireland. His mother may have been a Mary, also born in Ireland.
John later moved to Minnesota and first married a Bridget McGuire, when she passed away, he married Johanna Power (also of Ireland). John died May 9, 1894 in Dodge County, Minnesota. If I calculate back, his birth date would have been May 23, 1836 - though most census has him born more like 1838. If there is any information regarding this family, please contact me. I seem to be standing at a brick wall with this line. Thank you!

They lived in Chicago, Illinois for most of their lives.

Where did your Higgins ancestor come from? Somerset UK
Comments:
I am the granddaughter of Victor James Higgins. Born in the Wincanton, Somerset area. He was born in 1923. He married Kathleen Jean Morey. He immigrated to Australia in 1952. He had two sisters, Una and Eve. He had I think four brothers. One was Edward (Ted), who also came to Australia. We think that his father's name was Joseph and perhaps his mother's name was Daisy. Daisy's maiden name could have been Gray. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Was your Higgins ancestor famous ? Being hard to trace !! lol
Comments:
John Higgins b.c1846 is my GGGgrandfather and one of my brick walls.He came over to the UK at some point.I am not sure if he came as a child with his family or later. I suspect the former as the Famine may well have come into it. He was however noted as a Ships Steward on the 1871 census with my GGGgrandmother -Elizabeth (Callaghan). They lived in Conway North Wales and he died sometime before the 1891 census. They had the following known children:Barbara Ann b.1868,John Joseph b.1871,
Martha:1877-1887,Kate b.c1882 and Elizabeth b.1879(GGgrandmother)who was unmarried and in service at St.Asaph Workhouse (now known as Stanley Hospital) when my grandmother Rosanna was born in 1899. Elizabeth also had twin girls c1912 who were (according to family)taken in by the nuns of a convent and then adopted.It is thought Elizabeth died in childbirth.
Any leads etc would be much apprieciated :)

Was your Higgins ancestor famous ? I am just researching my family
Comments:
I recently moved to Maine, after the death of my Uncle, Elwyn " Red" Higgins, who was like a father to me. He was a Navy Seal, and a business owner in Searsport, Maine. My father Howard Leroy Higgins died in Orlando Florida in 2000. He was also a business owner. I amlooking for any and all information on my family tree, as I was not a part of this family most of life and not by choice either. I do know my roots are great and I would love to have some info on how to trace them. Thank you. Stacey Lynn Higgins.Belfast, Maine.

hi. im from philippines. i am looking for mr. and mrs. higgins who had helped me through an organization entitled "Christian Childrens Foundation".

i was one of the hundreds of filipino children who had been supported and helped by gracious people like my sponsor couple. i have no idea of what they look like, but have known them only through their surnames and their sponsorship no. which was 817296, which i used whenever i have to send letters or card.

i have not seen them personally and just received my support via the said organization. their profile was confidential and had just sent my thank-you cards and pictures or letters through the same process, using my sponsorship no. thus, i had not known them and wasnt been abled to extend my gratefulness personally when the org. was liquidated or finished.

i had searched via internet and was hoping that you may have the connection to my "blessed couple". my only purpose is to give them my warmest appreciation for their blessings they have shared. i would not forget them for they are forver curved in my heart.

my prayers go to them wherever they might be.

The furthest I can trace my Higgins descendants are to Thomas (b.@1820 - 1890) and Hannah (nee O'Keefe - b@1831) Higgins who came from County Cork to Saint John, NB , Canada @ 1876 with three children: Edward J. (b.1859), William (b. 1864) and Ellen Hannah (1871). In 1893 William was sentenced to 3 years at the Dorchester Penitentiary for assaulting his poor mother. In 1902 Edward's son Frank (b.1885) was convicted of murder and sentenced to life, however, he was believe innocent by family and local historians now as well disbelieve his guilt.

Hi,
my name is Peter Joseph Higgins.

My father Patrick (Peter) Higgins died in 1981, he was born in 1910, in Mayo,
West of Ireland.

His father Thomas Higgins, had a brother Michael Higgins who emigrated to the USA,
I am not sure when, but maybe about 1880/1890.

How can I follow this further?

Two places figure in family history, Philadelphia and the Bronx, New York.

Regards,

Peter Joseph Higgins

What a wonderful site. Thanks to your site I am pretty sure that my ggg Uncle George Higgins born abt 1837 in Ellsworth, ME did serve in the Civil War and received a pension. I will request his record from NARA. Congratulations on your hard work. I am absolutely impressed!
George's mother and father were born in Ireland. Unfortunately, at this point I don't know where they were born in Ireland.
Patrick Higgins my gggrandfather arrived Passamaquaody ME abt 1835. His future wife, Mary Mullen arrived in 1836.
Children
George b 1837
Anne Marie (gggrandmother) b abt 1844
Ellen (Nellie) b abt 1845

Sincerely,
Ellen

To previous guestbook entry writer,your email came back as undeliverable,so i am replying to your entry here

I have posted your inquiry from the guestbook on the
main site and have added my findings
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~mjhiggins/usa-2006.htm#gatchell

Most of it appears to be correct as long as the Norris
Higgins in 1880 census was the correct one. The civil
war connection will have to be verified as the right
Lkeonard higgins. I am pretty certain it is because
age age was a close enough match to census.Let me know
if you verify info and if you have any more info to
add to it

Where did your Higgins ancestor come from? John Higgins came from England
Comments:
Wonderful website you have. I'm wondering if you can help me. The following is the information that I do have, however I am not sure how accurate it is. I do know this much.
My great, great grandfather John Higgins came from England where he was the oldest of 11 children. It is understood, although this could be wrong, that upon the death of the parents, the family was broken up. John Higgins came to Nfld as a "Home Child". We also think he had a sister that also came to Nfld and lived close by. John, (the 1st) was apprenticed with a family that lived around the Grand Bank, Nfld. area.
John married and had a son John, born in 1854.
John (2) married Maria Rose Hickman. They had a son & daughter. Elizabeth & then Jabez ten years later.
Jabez Higgins married Beatrice Earl & had 7 children ( 2 died young)
My father Donald Higgins is the eldest. He married Lois B. Tulloch & had 3 children.
I am the youngest & my name is Karen.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I believe there
is a website for "Home Children" brought over in the 1800's. We believe that John must have come over in the early 1800's. The date we are going by is that his son, John, was born in 1854. That could put John Sr. coming over say in the 1820's?
Anyways, any help or info is greatly appreciated.
Cheers!

Great Grandpa Edward Higgins was born in 1879 and died 1974. He left the comfort and security of his home in Oregon and settled in the 100 Mile House district in B.C. He came to establish a better life, and a better way of living, and he did this by setting an example for others to follow. He was a natural leader and took on settling disputes in the community. Whenever anyone had a problem they went to Edward. There is a memorial in 100 Mile House, B.C. finished 2006. His legacy still lives on.

I am trying to locate any relatives in the surrounding areas.. My Grandfather's name was Joesph Higgins and he was married to Thalia Saavadra from Ecuador. He was previously married to a woman(not sure of her name)but they also had children. I believe some of the children are located in Pennsylvania. My grandfather passed away when my father Omar Higgins was 12. That would be 42 years ago. I am also looking for a great picture of our family coat of arms if available.

Comments:
My grandfather, Alfred William Higgins was born in Upwey, Dorset, married Louisa Jones from Llanelli, Wales and drove locomotives for the GWR. My research so far takes me to County Sligo, which seems to be the home of the Higgins name. Higgins, or O'Higgins, is apparently a Gaelic version of "Viking"! Bernardo O'Higgins, Simon Bolivar's lieutenant, is a famous ancestor. Anyone else have any research results?

I don't know any names of mother/father, etc. He died in the 50's and I think he was approx 68-70 years of age at the time of his death. Married Grace Matheny and they had 2 children: Joseph Edward and Grace Marie. Thanks for any help.

My website is at http://www.geocities.com/heartland/Acres/6132/
I would be happy to correspond and trade information with anyone following up similar lines to mine. I have the two Higgins books and census data for most of my line I have traced but would like to make contact with someone in Hancock county Maine who can get copies of original Birth, Death, Marriage, baptism data

I am happy to do research for anyone wanting data on the Higgins family in New Zealand

I think Michaels page is great and an excellent idea, It enables people with very little to get started.

Cheers Gary

Was your Higgins ancestor famous ? Not that I know of

The earlist Higgins family that I know of is Thomas and Margaret Agin-Higgins who lived New Jersey Monouth co. Have maps where they lived. He was a farmer. They had a John, Mary, Bridget, margaret and I belive a Rose. The next information I have on them is when their daughter Mary Higgins marries Thomas Doolin and Mary's Sister marries a Grady. Thomas Doolin and Grady were friends and Grady signed Thomas Doolin Nationalization papers. I have a map where Thomas Higgins lived at in the early 1880's near Holbrook, Iowa located in Iowa Co. Green township. Margaret is shown to have lived several place with her children and they finally died and is buried with the Thomas Doolin Family at the Holbrook Cem St. Michaels Catholic Church. John Higgins ran a tavern in Iowa City and I believe that one of the girls went to Neb. and one to Mishagan. But then I loose track of where all that family went to. They show up on records in the Iowa City Catholic Church in the early 1900's as visiting their mom at the church, I believe it was St. Patrick Church. Shari Stogdill

Was your Higgins ancestor famous ? to the family he was
Comments:
My grandfather was Herman Higgins, born 7-17-1895. He married Leola Lee July 23, 1916 in Warner, Oklahoma. His mother was Madora (Dora) Robinson Higgins. She married James Higgins October 25, 1894 in Yell County, Arkansas. She was 17 and James (aka J.H.) was 21. James died prior to 1900. He was reportedly a Methodist minister.
It is believed that James was the son of John and Sarah (Sahra) Higgins of Ellsworth Township, Logan County Arkansas. John and Sarah had the following children: Nathan Higgins 1867 Disy (Dicey?) Higgins 1868, George Higgins 1872, James Higgins 1874, Sallie Higgins 1875, Cassy Higgins 1877 and Kaleb Higgins 1880. All were born in Arkansas except Nathan and Disy who were born in Tennessee, according to the 1880 Logan County Arkansas census. John was from Georgia. Sarah from North Carolina.

I believe Disy married a W.L. Corley July 11, 1886 in Logan County Arkansas.

I am searching for more information about James' brothers and sisters and ancestors. I also would like to know how my greatgrandfather (James) died at a young age.

Thanks.

My Grandfather was a wonderful artist and he could paint some awesome pictures. His name was (Thomas Lawton Higgins). I saw his pictures but I never got to know him because he died before I was born. I think that he died in 1958 but I am not sure. His mother's name was Bertha Mae Andrews and his father's name I really don't know. If you could find out anything about him I would deeply appreciate it very much. Thank you: Cindy Higgins Halfaker

I share the same ancestry as Robert Lyle Young. My great-grandfather was William Higgins (1820-1906), son of Ransom Higgins who was the son of George W. Higgins and Patience Mapes. I would like to contact Mr. Young to inform him that his ancestor Rozander Higgins married his first cousin, Mary Elizabeth Higgins who was also the daughter my great-grandfather William Higgins (1820-1906). I have quite a bit of information on this family. Will you please let me know how I can contact Mr. Young? I would like to know if he has any further information on Mary Elizabeth; in particular if he knows the name of her mother, who was William's first wife. I am descended from his second wife, Phebe Ann Armstrong Higgins.

Hi- Iwanted to thank you for the census resords of Anne Helen Higgins that you sent me and posted. Do you know anyone that can do a lookup in utah for her birth record? She was born in 1906. Her father was Lawrence Higgins and her mother Margaret Helen O'Brien.
I know the VanAukens of the 1910 census was Anne's Aunt Catherine O'Brien VanAuken. Her husband died in 1919 and Anne was moved to the Farrell household in 1920 census. I thought Mary Farrell was possibly an O'Brien but I suspect she was a Higgins. Can you see if there is a MAry Higgins who married Joseph L. Farrell about 1902 or so? If she is a Higgins at least that would make more of the puzzle fit together. By the way I am very pleased to have found your website. You are providing a valuable resource for a lot of people. Thanks again and happy hunting.. Anne

My great greatgrandfather was James Edward Higgins - b. 1828 County Monaghan according to his tombstone at Holy Cross in Farrar (Story County) Iowa. He married Lydia Mathis, who is buried at Keller Cemetery Elkhart (Polk County) Iowa -- I was always fascinated they were buried separately because he was Catholic and she was not. I have a lot of Mathis genealogy info and contacts but not one scrap of info on GG Grandpa Higgins. A lot of relatives in northern Polk County & Story County Iowa were from Ohio via Indiana, and Kentucky -- would love to find out how James Higgins got here. Great website! Good hunting & God bless!

Thank you so much for the info you posted on the census regarding anne H. Higgins. I am trying to find a record of her birth. She was born in Sandy, Utah and according to the 1920 census she was 14 so her birth year was 1906 not 1904 as thought. I am very interested in her father Lawrence Higgins and if there has been any info found on him.His wife was Margaret Helen O'Brien who came from Ireland. I think they met in NY and then went to Utah. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Anne

Where did your Higgins ancestor come from? NC or NJ??
Was your Higgins ancestor famous ? Not that I can find.
Comments:
This is an excellent site. It is great to read about the Higgins generation. Just wish I could find a missing link to mine. I have James Knox Polk Higgins, 2nd going back to James K P Higgins, Sr. bef: b. 1806. I can find him in the census 1830 - 1860. Can't find his parents or proof of birth, siblings or anything except he married Nancy Jane Hensley, daughter of Larkin B Hensley out of VA. living in TN at that time. My guess is they married around 1830. They were found living in Hickman Co., TN 1830 census. First child Elizabeth J was born 1832 in Coles/Clark Co. IL as were the next four. Last Nancy A was born January 22, 1850 in Lewis Co., TN. It is like he did not exist until then 1830. I received information he is most likely son of Samuel, or Richard. Also the son of James Higgins and Catherine Van Pelt. I am lost in a round Higgins room with no way in. My out seems to be 1806 (year I read through Hensley genealogy) he was born toward 2004. I would appreciate any help I can get. I am proud to be of the Higgins family. My mother was a Higgins Starting with my grandchildren going back to James K P Higgins, sr. takes them 8 generations. Again, this is an excelent site. Alva

Was your Higgins ancestor famous ? Not that I know of.......
Comments:
My Higgins ancestors went to Lincoln Co.Tn from Ky in the early 19th century. My particular line came from Owen W. Higgins son of James Higgins 1778-1888 and Nancy Higgins (his cousin) 1783-1820; Owen W. Higgins (no dates) m Frances Hopkins Stone 1804-1872; one of their children was Frances (Fanny) Higgins 1836-1900 who m Joseph Gilbert Carrigan 1834-1900; one of their two daughters Emma Carrigan 1860-1953 m Andrew Martin McLaughlin 1854-1916; their oldest son Joseph Martin McLaughlin 1885-1927 m Laura Laura Graham Hobbs 1887-1944. These were my maternal Grandparents. I would very much like to contact anyone else on these family lines, but especially the Higgins line. The Higgins family business in Fayetteville, Tn. became the Higgins Funeral Home, still operating today. I have met a cousin there but he is not interested at all in genealogy. Any help would be appreciated.

My father name is Lige Lee Higgins mother's name is Rosa lee (Finley) Higgins. Currently my siblings and I have given our parents 74 grandchildren, 78 great-grandchildren, and 4 great- greatchildren and by the time you read this it'prbably have risen.
My father Lige also fathered 42 other children because Black men during that time had to go various places to work. No doubt you're of the caucasian race, still we have the blood.

I enjoyed the website. Have been trying to find parents of my gg grandmother Jane T Higgins for several years. I do know she was born in Ohio, per census records and assume she died in Kansas. She married Reuben Holt in 1849 in Dupage County, Illinois. They live in Wayne Township per the 1860 census. Reuben and Jane were the parents of Cordelia, Amos, Julia, Clement, Richard, Anna, Eliza, Ida, William and Reuben. They were in Dupage County, Illinois until the 1870's. Found them on the 1880 census living in Washington, Crawford County, Kansas. Have not been able to find a death record for either one.
Have seen records of other Higgin families who moved from Ohio to Illinois but have not been able to connect my Jane with them
Enjoyed reading your website.

Was your Higgins ancestor famous ? Only for being a 15 year old convict to Australia
Comments:
Just last year finished 2 volumes on the family of John Patrick Higgins, of Curraghboy, County Sligo. He was sentenced to 7 years transportation to Fremantle, Australia, Convict no 2601. Became a Pioneer in the Avon Valley in Western Australia after his CP and the book catalogues well over 3,00 desc. from John O'Higgins/O'Huigin born circa 1765. We have had a family reunion in WA which had a roll up of over 450 people. Very rewarding and all had a great time. Cheers. Lesley

Am looking for county or village of origin of James W. Higgins, born circa 1820, emigrated 1846, left Liverpool 24 Mar 1846 on Samuel Hicks, arrived NY, went to Missouri, married Katie Cosgrove(born ireland circa 1834) circa 1850, 1860 census shows them in Franklin County, MO, with 5 children; 1870 census shows family in St. Louis, MO, Katie dead (1866 Cholera epidemic) with additional child, Katie, born in 1864. James W. died in 1899 in St. Louis. James W. had siblings John A. Ann, Peter W. Mary, Thomas W.. All emigrated to this country but haven't found them on passenger lists. As far as I know, my sister and I are the last to bear the name Higgins in our particular line. I'd love to know where we come from in Ireland. According to my Mother, the Higgins came from Mayo but I haven't found any proof so far.

I'm a direct descendent of Richard Higgins (b. 1603) and Lydia Chandler. My line runs: Richard (1603-1675); Benjamin (1640-1690); Samuel (1676-1761); Israel (1706-1788); Heman (1740-1788); Sylvester (1776-1825); Silas (1817-1888); Werter (1837-1910); Henry (1870-1933); Warner (1902-1961).

Looking to find/hear from any others of Richard's line and to confirm Richard's parentage. I've found two possibilities.
