Source: The History of Pettis County, Missouri.. By I. MacDonald Demuth

WILLIAM B. HIGGINS is the son of Peter Higgins, a native of Kentucky, but who moved his family to Missouri in the year 1835, and settled on a small creek, known as Spring Fork, in the southern part of Pettis County. Here he lived until his death, which occurred in the year 1864. Wm. B. was born in Pettis County, Mo., May 20, 1837, and is the fourth child in a family of seven children. He received his education from the schools of his native county, attending the first school that was organized in this part of the country. He was married Dec. 18, 1857, to Miss Malinda C. Warren, a daughter of Erbin Warren, a native of Kentucky, but who moved to Pettis County at an early day. From this marriage there were four children, three of whom are now living, viz: Erbin P., Bettie A., and Wm. I.
Mrs. Higgins dying, he was again married August, 1877, to Mrs. Sarah J. Schull. Since Mr. Higgins has been a man grown, he has been engaged in farming, and the raising of stock. He owns a fine farm of 195 acres, well improved, and under a high state of cultivation. As a citizen Mr. Higgins is held in high respect. His demeanor is unassuming, and in business relations he is above reproach.

The Honorable Andrew Jackson Higgins, 90, a native of Platte City, Missouri, and long time resident of Jefferson City, Missouri, died Wednesday, September 14, 2011, with his family of Kansas City by his side. He was born June 21, 1921, in Platte City, a son of Andrew Jervie and Frances Beverly Higgins. He was married October 30, 1948, in St. Louis to Laura Jo-an Brown who predeceased him in death March 6, 2009. A graduate of Platte City High School in 1939, he received a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in music and a minor in English from Central Methodist College (now Central Methodist University) in 1943, and a Bachelor of Laws (now Juris Doctorate) from Washington University in 1948. He was a member of Phi Mu Alpha Music Fraternity, Delta Theta Phi Legal Fraternity and Sigma Alpha Epsilon Social Fraternity. He served as President of Central's Alumni Association, and was a member of the Board of Curators. He received a Distinguished Alumni Award from Central in 1973, and an Honorary Doctor of Laws in 1982. His law School conferred its Distinguished Alumni Award on him April 13, 2007. He enlisted in the United States Naval Reserve January 13, 1942, and was on active duty in World War II from May 1943 to July 1946, including service as Communications-Gunnery Officer, and Commanding Officer aboard LSM 325 in the Pacific Theater. He was a Charter and Life member of Platte County Memorial Post 4165 Veterans of Foreign Wars. In 1948, he returned to Platte City with his bride where he practiced law from 1948-1960. He served three terms as Prosecuting Attorney of Platte County and one term as Mayor of Platte City. In 1960, he was appointed Judge of the Sixth Judicial Circuit (Platte, Clinton, Andrew and DeKalb Counties) by Governor James T. Blair. He resigned in June 1964, when appointed by the Supreme Court of Missouri as a Commissioner on the Supreme Court. Governor Joseph P. Teasdale
appointed him a judge of the Supreme Court in 1979, and he served until his mandatory retirement June 21, 1991. He was the Chief Justice 1985-1987. Following retirement, he became Of Counsel to Inglish & Monaco, P.C., in Jefferson City. Upon reflection over his 90 plus years, he felt fortunate to have lived a good life which he attributed to loving family and cherished friends who ranged from life long friends from his childhood to fellow alumni and musicians of Central Methodist College and Washington University, sailors, practitioners, neighbors, retirees, his colleague of 17 years Nicholas (Nick) Monaco, and mentors including Platte City High School Band Director Ralph Shipley and English Teacher Mrs. Billie Tatman; Dean Wayne La Salle Townsend of Washington University Law School; Big Band Director Charlie Armstead Wells; his predecessor to the trial bench Judge Gerald Cross; Judge Paul Barrett, Commissioner on the Missouri Supreme Court; pioneers in
Juvenile Justice and Reform Judge John (Spec) Yeaman and Judge Kenneth Elliott; and "to being at the right place at the right time" and to "patience, patience, patience." It gave him great pleasure to have been a mentor himself to young attorneys including those who served as his law clerks with whom he maintained contact in the following years. Professionally he endeavored to uphold his oath of office to improve the administration of justice. In particular he sought to improve the system for abused, neglected and delinquent children. He secured organization of the Missouri Supreme Court Task Force on Permanency Planning for Abused and Neglected Children and adoption of a Supreme Court Rule establishing standards for operation of Juvenile detention facilities. He was a member of the Board of Directors of Prevent Child Abuse Missouri, and was awarded the Ann Dandurant Award by Prevent Child Abuse Missouri in 1990. He was a member of the
Advisory Board to the Missouri Division of Youth Services, and in October 2009, he was honored to be the guest of the Youth of the Northwest Region of the Missouri Division of Youth Services where he was recognized for "exemplary service to the Advisory Board." Throughout his life, he pursued his passion for music and the arts sparked as a youth in Platte City, and considered playing clarinet at age 11 with the Platte City Marching Band in the inaugural parade of Governor Guy B. Park of Platte City in 1933 as one of his most memorable moments. He earned his way through college as a member of Charlie Armstead's Orchestra and its successors, and was a frequent clarinet soloist with the Central Concert Band. He was a charter member of the Capitol City Council on the Arts, the Jefferson City Little Theater and the Cantorum choral group. He appeared on stage in a number of productions and was first clarinetist in the Jefferson City Symphony for several
years. He was a member of the First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Platte City and Jefferson City where he sang in the choir for a number of years, and most recently in Kansas City at Country Club Christian Church where he continued to enjoy singing the hymns with gusto. He was recognized as the Missouri Child Care Association Child Advocate of the year for 1987. In September 1991, the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges honored him for "outstanding leadership in the implementation of Permanency Planning for abused and neglected children throughout the nation." He was the first recipient of the Andrew Jackson Higgins Award for Excellence in Juvenile Justice established in 1992 by the Missouri Juvenile Justice Association. In 1996, he received a President's award for service as Chairman of the Bar's Commission on Children and the Law, and was also accorded the title of Senior Counselor. He received a Lifetime Achievement Award
from Missouri CASA in 1997, and the Gene Schwilck Award from Citizens for Missouri's Children in 1998. He was a member of the Academy of Missouri Squires and of the Missouri, Cole County and American Bar Associations, the American Judicature Society and the Missouri Institute for Justice. At the 1990 annual meeting of the Missouri Bar he received the Bar's Spurgeon Smithson Award for "extraordinary service toward the increase and diffusion of justice in our society and for dedication to the purposes of the legal profession," and at the Missouri Bar Meeting in 2001, the American Judicature Society presented him with its Special Merit Citation in recognition of services in promoting the Effective Administration of Justice. In 2010, he was a recipient of the St. Louis Bar Foundation's Spirit of Justice Award. Survivors include two daughters and their husbands, Susan and Alan Garner and Laura and Jeff Tyler; three grandchildren, Andrew Garner, and Laura Louise and Jackson Tyler, all of Kansas City, and a sister, Virginia Craig of Oklahoma City. He was predeceased by three brothers, David B. Higgins, James M. Higgins and Theodore W. Higgins. The family will receive friends at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, September 20, 2011, in the Sanctuary of Country Club Christian Church, 6101 Ward Parkway, Kansas City, Missouri. Services will follow at 1 p.m. at the church. Reverend Charles Murphy Jr. will officiate. A burial service will follow at 3 p.m. at the Platte City Cemetery. The family suggests memorial contributions be made to the First Christian Church of Jefferson City or Country Club Christian Church in Kansas City, Central Methodist University or the Missouri Supreme Court Historical Society.

Dr. Spence Redman spent his early life on his father's farm near Platte City, and after attending the public schools and the Gaylord Institute of Platte City took up the study of medicine under his father's direction. His regular courses were taken in that old and high-class institution, the Jefferson Medical College of Philadelphia, where he was graduated M. D. April 2, 1883. He had barely turned his majority, and with the prestige of a thorough training and a good family name returned to Platte City to make this the scene of a professional career which has had no important interruption down to the present time. For a
number of years he practiced over a wide radius of country, and rode and drove over country roads in all kinds of weather, long before the telephones, good roads, and automobiles came to lighten the burdens of the doctor. His services are now given to many people whose parents were among his early patients. Doctor Redman is a man of broad and accurate knowledge, and has an excellent professional and general library and a good office equipment. His professional associations are with the County and State Medical societies and the American Medical Association.
Doctor Redman's first wife was Camilla S. Burnes, who died leaving two children, Margaret E. and Spence, Jr., both at home. On April 15, 1908, Doctor Redman married Myrtle Higgins, a member of one of the oldest and leading families of this section of Missouri. She was born near Parkville, in Platte County, November 14, 1880. Her grandfather, A. J. Higgins, was born in Howard County, Missouri, in 1816, five years before the admission of Missouri to the Union, and at the age of twenty-one, in 1837, became a pioneer in the Platte Purchase, recently opened for settlement. In Platte County he preempted three farms. On his father's advice, and on the understanding that he would be recompensed, he turned over two of the farms to his brothers, but owing to his father's sudden death he was left without recourse for much of his pioneer enterprise. In 1850 he began the clearing of his third farm, and lived there until his death in 1894. A. J. Higgins married Susan Gregg, who was born in Clay County, Missouri, September 28, 1823, and died August 8, 1899. The date of her birth indicates the pioneer advent of the Gregg family to Northwest Missouri. Her father was David Gregg, who in 1837 moved from Clay County to Platte County and settled on a place adjoining the Higgins farm. She was married to Mr. Higgins January 5, 1842, and became the mother of five children, three of whom are still living.
David B. Higgins, the father of Mrs. Redman, was born in Platte County, December 4,
1850, was reared on a farm, attended country school and the St. Joseph High School, and at the age of nineteen began teaching, a vocation for which he was well qualified and which he followed in various localities for ten years. After that he conducted the home farm, and in 1891 took the lead in organizing the Platte County Farmers Mutual Fire Insurance Company, in which he was elected secretary. With the exception of one year he
has held that post ever since. In 1902 he moved from the farm to Platte City, and now gives all his time to the affairs of the company. It now has insurance in force in Platte County aggregating $2,540,000. Mr. Higgins is a member of the Masonic fraternity, and in politics a democrat. On February 7, 1878, he married Sarah M. Noland, who was born in Platte County in January, 1860, and died in 1902. Their two children are A. J., of Platte City, and Mrs. Doctor Redman.

- Charles Edson Higgins -
Charles Edson Higgins, son of Edson J. and Mary E. Higgins, was born in Kane county, Illinois, August 24, 1868. His father was a direct descendant of the Puritans, who landed at Plymouth in 1620. His mother was a descendant of Walter Palmer, who also was a Puritan and one of the leading families of New England. His parents moved to Henry county, Missouri, in the fall of 1869, where his father engaged in school teaching and stock raising until the spring of 1875, when they moved to St. Clair county, Missouri, where he gave his entire attention to farming and stock dealing, which he followed with marked success until the summer of 1882, when, overcome with constant toil, he was attacked with typhoid fever, and, after an illness of five weeks, died September 27, 1882. He had been a graduate of Poughkeepsie college, New York, and, appreciating the value of an education, resolved that his children should be thoroughly endowed with education. But he had
purchased six hundred acres of land, and had not completed the payments at the time of his death. This brought greater responsibility upon the mother and Charles, who was then only fourteen years of age, but by careful management the last payment was made, and their home was their own. Charles E. professed religion at the age of twelve years, and united with the Cumberland Presbyterian church at Chalk Level at the age of sixteen. He has been an earnest worker in the cause of Christ and an uncompromising opponent of the liquor traffic.

He was married August 2, 1888, to Miss Docia Garnett. One child, Mary Emogene, was born to them July 20, 1891. Miss Garnett was born in St. Clair county, Missouri, September 29, 1868. She was a young lady of amiable qualities, a true Christian, and possessed a good education. Since her marriage she has been the friendly advisor and encouraging supporter of her husband in all his trials and difficulties, and he attributes much of his success in life to her kindly sympathy. In the press of business he never lost his desire for an education. He visited his brother, who was attending Southwest Baptist college, and was particularly attracted toward the college on account of the religious as well as intellectual training received by the students. He resolved to enter its walls and qualify himself for life's duties. And, though in the midst of cruel gibes and false predictions, he entered the college September 6, 1892, and graduated in the spring' of 1895 with
the degree of B. S. And afterward he was chosen to preside over a select school at Pleasant Hope. But the president of his alma mater laid hands upon him and secured his services as assistant teacher, and he has filled the place acceptably since the fall of 1895 to the present, 1897.

CHARLES E. HIGGINS.

Charles E. Higgins, county superintendent of schools in St. Clair county and a resident of Osceola, is one of the well known educators in the state connected with the public-school system. Ability has brought him more and more to the front and at all times his zeal and interest in the work is inspirational to teachers and pupils under his guidance. He was born in Kane county, Illinois, on the 24th of August, 1868, his parents being Edson J.
(see more on Edson's family) and Mary E. (Cook) Higgins, both of whom were natives of the state of Vermont. The father's birth occurred in Benson township, Rutland county, on the 10th of June, 1843, and the mother was born in Orwell, Addison county, June 28, 1844. In early life Edson J. Higgins engaged in teaching and in bookkeeping. At the last call for troops he enlisted for service with the Vermont regiment, but was never called to the front. Following his marriage, which was celebrated in the Green Mountain state, he removed to Illinois and
for some time was a resident of Kane county. In the fall of 1869 he went to Henry county, Missouri, taking up his abode on a farm eight miles west of Clinton. There he continued until the spring of 1875, when he went to St. Clair county, settling on a farm fifteen miles southeast of Appleton City, where he continued to reside until his death on the 27th of September, 1882. While he was prominent in public life, being an excellent public speaker, yet he would never consent to become a candidate for a public office, being content to devote his attention to his business affairs and to provide a good living and opportunities for his children. His widow survives and lived upon the home farm until 1913, when she removed to Osceola, where she now resides.

Charles E. Higgins is the eldest of a family of four. His early education was acquired in the public schools of St. Clair county, and later he spent one year as a student in Westfield Academy, of the same county. He afterward entered the Southwest Baptist College, in which he studied for four years, completing the classical course by graduation in 1894. He has since taken post-graduate work in the Western Normal College of Iowa, from which he received the degree of Pe. B. He has also done review work in Drury College at Springfield, Missouri, and at the close of that term he successfully passed the required examination, which won him a life state certificate. His education, however, was not continuous, but was interrupted at intervals and only when he made the opportunity did he have the chance of continuing his studies. He was fourteen years of age at the time of his father's death, after which he continued upon the home farm with his mother to the age
of twenty-four years, assuming with her and his brothers the responsibility of farm management and cultivation. At the age of twenty-four years he entered college at Bolivar and after completing his course there began teaching in the college from which he had just graduated, remaining a member of the faculty of that school for five years. He was afterward principal of the ward school of Bolivar for a year and then accepted the position of principal of the schools at Fair Play, where he remained for three years. He was also principal of the schools at Humansville for two years, at the end of which time he came to Osceola, and for five years was superintendent of the schools of this city. On the expiration of that period he was elected to the position of county superintendent of schools, in which capacity he is now ably serving, wisely directing the educational interests of the county. He has stimulated activity in both the rural and city schools, has
done much to improve both the grades and methods of instruction and is accomplishing excellent results in the line of his chosen profession. In connection with his teaching, Professor Higgins and his brother Howard own and are also operating a large stock farm of four hundred acres, the brother acting as superintendent thereof.

On the 2d of August, 1888, Mr. Higgins was united in marriage to Miss Nellie D. Garnett, who was born in St. Clair county, September 29, 1868, a daughter of Dr. R. W. and Julia (Ledbetter) Garnett. Her father was born in Kentucky, June 3,1828, and her mother's birth occurred in Missouri, September 9, 1842. Dr. Garnett came to Missouri in 1855, settling in St. Clair county, about eight miles northwest of Osceola, where he owned a farm. He was a practicing physician as well as a landowner, his sons cultivating the farm. Later he sold his large tract of land in 1904 and removed to a small farm adjoining Chalk Level, St. Clair county, where he died April i, 1914. To Professor Higgins and his wife were born six children: Mary Emogene, born August 20, 1891, and died May 30, 1901; Julia, who was born in 1895 and 'is now teaching in the schools of St. Clair county; Mildred, who was born in 1896 and will graduate from the high school of Osceola in the class of
1914; Nellie, who was born in 1899 and is now a high school student; Clarence, who was born in 1903 and is now a fifth grade pupil in Osceola; and Charlie Garnett, born April 26, 1906, and died October 2, 1907.

Professor Higgins holds membership in the Masonic lodge and is loyal to the teachings of the craft, exemplifying in his life its beneficent spirit. He also holds membership with the Knights of Pythias. He is a member of the Baptist church, and his attitude upon the temperance question is indicated by his support of the prohibition party. He has never been a politician in the usual sense of office seeking, and the only public position that he has ever filled has been along the strict path of his profession. He was elected county superintendent in 1911, and his record in office has given general satisfaction to the public.

Does anyone have any information to share?

WILLIAM F. HIGGINS.

William F. Higgins, secretary and treasurer of the Higgins. Leather Company of St. Louis, was born in Bardstown, Nelson county, Kentucky, August 30, 1880, a son of Francis S. and B. M. Higgins who were also natives of the Blue Grass state. The father was a leather merchant of Louisville, Kentucky, for thirty years and in 1894 removed to St. Louis where he engaged in the leather business at Third and Locust streets, continuing there for five years. In 1900 he located at 1107 Franklin avenue and carried on the business up to the time of his death which occurred in 1917. In the intervening years he had built up a business of extensive proportions, covering not only St. Louis but a large section of the southwest and he became one or the leading leather merchants, first of Kentucky and afterward of Missouri.

William F. Higgins is the eldest of a family of five children. He was educated in Christian Brothers College at Louisville, Kentucky, and at St. Mary's College of Kansas. His business training was received under his father's direction and following the demise of Mr. Higgins the son continued the business and is now the secretary and treasurer of the Higgins Leather Company. The firm handles several lines of leather and shoe machinery, also everything for shoe repair shops, and employs four traveling salesmen to cover the southwest and also sell largely to the St. Louis trade. The extent of the business makes it one of the profitable industries of St. Louis.

In 1902 in this city Mr. Higgins was married to Miss Clara Bouche, a daughter of Mrs. Mary Bouche of St. Louis, and they now reside at No. 4116 Botanical avenue. Mr. Higgins belongs to the Missouri Athletic Association and the Recreation Club. He is a member of the Catholic church and his political allegiance is that of the democratic party. His time and attention, however, are largely concentrated upon his business affairs and for fifteen years he has been associated with the firm and and is now one of the officials. He was a traveling salesman for about twelve years and was then elected secretary and treasurer, in which capacity he has since continued. His progress is due to his capability, progressiveness and industry. He has a wide acquaintance among the trade In the south and is recognized as a progressive business man whose future success is assured if one argues by what he has accomplished in the past.

"PLEASANT GROVE," RESIDENCE OF JOSEPH C. HIGGINS.
    Joseph Higgins residence
- A History of Blackwater Township -

JOSEPH C. HIGGINS.
Was born in Hampshire County, Va., Feb. 27,1819. His father, James Higgins, was a native of Bath County, Va. In 1820 the family removed to Union County, Ky., where the mother died in 1826. Soon after the death of his wife the father returned to Virginia, where he resided till 1842, then emigrated to Missouri and located near Jefferson City, Cole County. In the spring of 1850 J. C. Higgins started on a trip to California and was taken sick at Sacramento City, where he remained till March, 1851, then embarked for New Orleans. The vessel was driven off the coast of South America; finally,however, he arrived at the Crescent City via Havana, having experienced a long and eventful voyage. He then returned by Mississippi to St. Louis, thence to Cole County. In 1851 he came to Pettis County and purchased a large tract of land, which is now a portion of his farm, and began improvements thereon. His first purchase was 200 acres, which has been increased to 3,000, and a portion subsequently given to his children. Most of his home farm lies east of his residence, and comprises as good land as can be found anywhere. The vineyard and garden are just west of the residence, beyond which is the creek and abundance of good timber. Mr. Higgins has been twice married: First, in 1S39, to Miss Mary Parker, a native of Virginia. She died in 1845, leaving three children: John P., now a farmer with a family in Houstonia Township; James M., now a farmer with a family in Houstonia Township, and Joseph P., now a farmer with a family in Blackwater Township. In 1847 Mr. Higgins was married to Miss Ellen Dellinger, daughter of Henry Dellinger, a native of Maryland. She died in May. 1863, leaving four children: Samuel D., still at home; H. Clay, a farmer with a family in Houstonia Township; Sallie E., now wife of Chas. Buckner, attorney, Brownsville, Saline County; and Win. Copsey, still at home. Mr. Higgins still retains more than
1,000 acres of land and has one of the finest and most agreeably arranged residences in Pettis County, a view of which appears on the preceding page. His farm residence, " Pleasant Grove," is surrounded by a grassy lawn, growing large forest trees, oak, walnut and locust. The mansion was planned by Mr. Higgins himself and built by Thos. Maddox, of Knobnoster, and cost about $10,000. It contains twelve rooms, with ample hallway, facilitating the entering of each room without passing through another. It is finished and furnished in elegant style. In his herd he has a fine white steer weighing 2,400 pounds. His stock and other farm work is overseen by himself and his sons, though "Joe," a deaf and dumb negro man, who has not slept off the farm since 1852, is considered by Mr. Higgins and family one of the best farm servants in the State. Though he can not read or write, hence does not know his own name, yet he can perform any kind of work at a mere
suggestion by gestures. Mr. Higgins is doing an extensive stock business, dealing in all kinds of stock, principally at present in mules. During the month of January, 1882, $18,000 worth of mules; February. $17,000; March, $14,000; April, $7,t'00, and May about $7,000. Undoubtedly he is the largest mule dealer between St. Louis and Kansas City. Mr. Higgins has been a man of great energy and enterprise since early youth, and to-day is one of the most active, enterprising and leading business men of Pettis County.

I am having a hard time trying to find anything on my few Higgins people.
What I have right now is a Catherine/Katherine Higgins, b. 24 Dec. 1812,
            who married Harrison Hatcher in 1830 in Cape Girardeau Co., MO.

Missouri Marriage Record
Name: Harrison Hatcher Spouse Name: Catharine Higens
Marriage Date: 25 Feb 1830 Marriage County: Cape Girardeau

She died 1849 in the same place. I have her parents as John Higgins (unusual name!!), b. 1778 in TN who was married to Elizabeth Black, b. 1786 in VA. He died 1840 in MO. Any ideas or leads?

Biography: Norman Higgins, activist 

Norman Higgins was born on January 26, 1963 in
Kansas City Missouri. His mother, Maxine, became a
single parent when her husband deserted her a month
after her son was born. Maxine was a waitress in a
prosperous restaurant so between wages and tips made
an adequate living for her son and herself. It was not
easy working and caring for a baby, but Maxine had
loving neighbors and friends who helped her with the
child while she worked and Norman thrived. 

Maxine made sure her son regularly attended school,
and saw that he did his work and got at least average
grades. He was not an inspired student, but worked
hard to justify his mother�s faith in him and make her
proud. He liked to participate in athletics,
especially football and baseball, so kept his grades
up in high school so he�d be eligible to play on his
high school teams. 

After graduation in 1981 he wanted to get out on his
own, so joined the Navy. He was stationed at North
Island, California but visited his high school
girlfriend, Gracie, whenever he got a leave long
enough to go home to Kansas City, and they planned to
be married when he got out of the service in 1985. But
in January l984, a month after he�d been home at
Christmas on leave, Gracie wrote a hysterical letter
that she was pregnant. Norman got an emergency leave
and flew home. They were married in a small ceremony,
which included friends and family. Norman was thrilled
that he was going to be a father and vowed he would
always be there for his child. Jason Higgins was born
September 15, l984. 

When he was discharged from the service after his
four-year enlistment, Norman was offered a job working
for a friend of his mother�s who owned a Janitorial
Service. The work was mostly at night servicing office
buildings, so he and Gracie worked out a schedule
where she worked at her secretarial job with a
lawyer�s office during the day, and he worked for the
janitorial service at night. Norman was a
conscientious, hard-worker, and the owner of the
service promoted him rapidly to a supervisory position
where Norman learned more about the business
operation. Gracie continued working with the goal in
mind of saving enough money so Norman could start a
business of his own. After the birth of Jason, Maxine
willingly helped out with the baby-sitting. Maxine had
quit working and remarried some years before. She and
her husband loved being grandparents. 

In 1986, Gracie was pregnant again. She and Norman had
discussed moving to a small town to raise their son,
and now with another baby on the way, they decided the
time was right. They had saved some money, and
Maxine�s husband wanted to invest in Norman�s new
business. Norman had stayed in touch with one of his
Navy buddies who lived in Oxford, and Norman had
visited him several times. He and Gracie decided
Oxford would be an ideal town in which to raise their
family. It�s small size and low crime rate convinced
them this was a good move. They moved to Oxford in
l987 after the birth of their second son, Justin. 

Norman�s established the Higgins� Janitorial Service
Company in Oxford and the business thrived. But Norman
made sure he always had time to spend with his boys.
He was almost obsessive about giving them the time and
attention he�d never had from a father. The boys loved
the attention from their Dad, and the three of them
were very close. 

Jason loved baseball and began playing Little League
when he was eight. Pete, the assistant coach, was a
young bachelor, who loved kids and volunteered his
time to coach. Since he lived a block away from the
Higgins family, he offered to pick up Jason, and take
him to and from the games and practices. This was such
a convenience to Gracie and Norman they accepted
without a second thought. After a few weeks Jason
began making excuses for not going to practice. He had
a stomachache or too much homework, or a headache. He
also started having terrible nightmares and even made
excuses to stay home from school. Gracie expressed her
concern to Norman and they decided to take him to his
pediatrician since they were sure there was something
physically wrong. The doctor examined Jason and gently
talked to him out of the presence of his parents.
Jason finally broke down and admitted the assistant
coach had fondled him in the car while driving to and
from practice. 

Norman went to the police and filed a complaint
against Pete, the assistant coach. The police checked
the records and found that Pete was a registered sex
offender. Norman was livid. He raved and ranted and
cried: Why were they not notified that a registered
sex offender not only lived a block away but was
allowed to be a coach on a youth baseball team? The
police explained that there were no regulations to
allow them to release names of registered sex
offenders to the public, and evidently the youth
baseball league had no requirements to do background
checks on their volunteers. Norman vowed to get the
laws passed that would require the names of registered
sex offenders released to the public, and that he
would keep track of them in Oxford. Gracie was
traumatized by the whole situation, as was Jason.
After the trial, she said she couldn�t stand living in
Oxford anymore, so she packed up the boys and moved
back to Kansas City. Norman was devastated and missed
his family, but became even more intense about his
cause. Gracie eventually divorced him, and didn�t even
want the boys visiting him in Oxford, so he had few
chances to be with them. He phoned and went to see
them, but it just wasn�t the same. He vowed no other
family would have to endure what his family had, so
intensified his work monitoring registered sex
offenders, getting the national registry law passed
and strengthening any legislation regarding registered
sex offenders. He worked long and hard to influence
Congress in 1994 to pass the Jacob Wetterling law to
require states to register sex offenders and on
Megan�s law in 1996 that allows public access to the
state registries of sex offenders. He continued to
monitor released registered sex offenders who lived in
Oxford, and made sure the community knew the dangers
of sex offenders in their midst to the extent the law
would allow. 

He occasionally worked with COP but felt they were
spread too thin by spending their energies on
insignificant projects and causes which weren�t as
important as monitoring registered sex offenders. He
felt Andrea Stover was a danger to the community
because of the pornographic ideas she espoused which
could stimulate sex offenders to commit further crimes
at the expense of innocent children.

J. T. HIGGINS,
was born in St. Louis County, March, 1851. His father, W. W. Higgins, is a native of Maryland. The subject of this sketch grew up as the sons of most farmers do, working on the farm in summer and attending school in the winter. He early evinced a taste for raising fine stock, and followed that until 1881, when he thought the western part of the state afforded better advantages, he, with his wife, moved to Johnson County, and settled in Kingsville township, on section 14, where he has 168 acres of well improved land. He was married in 1877 to Miss Nanna H. Blount, a native of Missouri, and daughter of James E. Blount, a native of Virginia. Mr. and Mrs. H. are both members of the South Methodist Church.
