The Rushville Times, Schuyler County, Illinois, Obituaries for the year 1896

Higgins, Adam Clarke 

Adam Clarke Higgins died March 25th at the home of his nephew, Lloyd Higgins, in Chicago, of congestion of the stomach after only a short illness. Brief funeral services according to the G.A.R ritual, were held in the city Thursday, and the remains were brought to Rushville Friday for burial 

Funeral services were held at the home of Hiram Graff conducted by Rev. J. B. Horney. Col. Horney, Post G.A.R., then took charge of the remains, and buried their comrade according to the rites of the order. A large delegation of veterans were in attendance. At the time of his death, Mr. Higgins was a practicing lawyer in Chicago. He stood high in his profession and attained success in the practice thereof. As an orator he was widely known throughout the state and was called upon quite frequently to visit some city to deliver an oration on matters pertaining to the higher order of American citizenship and the nobler qualities of patriotism. 

Mr Higgins was born September 14 1834 in Middlebourne, Tyler Co., West Virginia. He entered the ministry of the Methodist Church at 18 years of age. In 1855 he joined the Central Illinois conference. At the breaking out of the rebellion he raised a number of companies in Knox county. Not being a tactician or disciplinarian, he resigned a captaincy and went with the Eighty-third Illinois Volunteers as chaplain. For two years he was post chaplain at Clarksville, Tenn. At the close of the war he was mustered out with the rank of major of cavalry. After the war he re-entered the ministry and held charges in Illinois, Wisconsin, New York City and New Jersey. In 1865 he was married to Lydia F. Ramsey of Rushville, Illinois. He practiced law in Chicago fifteen years, but had made all preparations to move to Lincoln, Illinois, in June to enter a law partnership with his son, Charles A. Higgins. Mr. Higgins was a past commander of Winfield Scott Post, G.A.R. He was a member of the Improved Order of Red Men, and of the Union Veteran Association. 

Mrs. A. C. Higgins and son, Arthur, of Lincoln, Illinois, and Dr. Charles Higgins of Chicago, accompanied the remains of Adam Clarke Higgins from Chicago last week, and while in Rushville were guests of Mr. and Mrs. Hiram Graff.

Ky.; came to this county in 1836; was formerly a cooper, but is a farmer and stock-raiser at present. He has superior facilities for raising stock.
