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.

Wiley Grover Higgins

I came across your excellent website in my research of Wiley Grover Higgins, b. 1799 probably in S.C. I wonder if there is an awareness among his descendants that he was one of the great gunsmiths in America during the 1820-50 period? If there is an interest, I will provide more information about him as a gunsmith. My interest is as a collector and researcher of American Longrifles and a particular devotee of Higgins' work. It would be helpful in my research to hear from Higgins descendants who have knowledge about Wiley Grover Higgins and his work as a gunsmith.

For your information, See a photo of one of the few surviving rifles by Wiley G. Higgins,
 
http://www.kentuckylongrifles.com/html/body_gamecock.html
  It is believed to have been made near Indian Springs, Georgia, ca. 1825.

Will of Wiley G. Higgins, Sr.



29 JAN 2008
Obituary submission from Glenda Brack
From the June 16, 1909 issue of the Fayette Sun

Mrs. Winnie Higgins

She was a daughter of Benjamin and Eliza Gammill and was born in Harris County, Ga., and there resided until the death of her parents in 1892, when she came into our family, as she was a sister of my wife, and made our home her home until July 1900 when she became the second wife of the late S. G. Higgins a well-known and highly respected citizen of Chambers County. This identified her with one of the best families in the country, and with him she lived happily until his death in 1907, when she left her home and again became a member of our family until her death, which occurred last Friday evening at 6 o’clock, June 11, 1909. This last illness lasted 7 weeks during which time all was done for her by physicians and friends that could be done, but she had run her race and must go “the way of all the earth.” She died at the age of 75 and was buried by the side of her husband in the Higgins Cemetery, near Five Points, Chambers County, Ala., in the presence of a goodly number of friends and relatives. Four of the five surviving step-children gathered around her casket and with tears manifested that death had severed a strong tie that existed between them. When quite young she made a profession of religion and died a member of the Primitive Baptist Church at Mt. Hickory, Chambers County. Twice during her last illness she became perfectly happy, and with her weak voice, gave praises to God to whom she has gone and in whom her spirit rests until the resurrection morn, when soul and body will be reunited and housed in the paradise of God. We take this occasion to extend to our neighbors and friends our hearty thanks for their faithful service and tender sympathy during our trouble. J. T. Satterwhite

(Per “Survey of Cemeteries in Chambers County, Alabama” there is a tombstone in the Higgins Family Cemetery that reads: “Mrs. Winnie Higgins, wife of S. G. Higgins, Jan. 25, 1834 – Jan. 25, 1909 NOTE: the death date should be June 11, 1909. gb She is buried beside her husband and his first wife.)
