HIGGINS, ROBERT W., editor and public official, was born in Alabama and died about 1862. He was reared in Jackson County, and attended the U. S. military academy at West Point for some time. He studied law, was admitted to the bar and lived in DeKalb County for a few years. In 1854 or 1855, he moved to Talladega County, and became connected with the editorial department of the "Watchtower." He was elected to the State legislature from DeKalb County in 1857, and to the senate from DeKalb and Marshall Counties, 1859. At one time he was an unsuccessful candidate for secretary of state. At the beginning of the War of Secession in 1861, Gen. Higgins entered the C. S. Army, and was promoted until he reached the rank of major. Before the second year of the war was over, he sickened and died. Previous to the war he had been elected a brigadier general. He was never married. Last residence: DeKalb County
