John T. was born before the 1870 Census was taken, but after the cutoff date which was Jun 1. The Census was done on 10 Aug 1870. He's listed as 1 month of age, but then marked off. Freestone Co TX, p.15, Household 106.

Online databases of descendants, show his name as John Thomas Higginbotham. Although I was originally given the name as John Thompson - I suspect Thomas is more likely to be correct, especially since his grandfather's name was Thomas.
