-COLONEL DAVID J. HIGGINS-

David Jordan Higgins was born September 18, 1817, at Otisfield, Oxford County, Maine. He married his first wife, Cynthia L. Weeks, at Dover, Maine, on December 20, 1843. David and Cynthia raised three children, Wilbur F. Higgins (born January 12, 1843 and died at Leavenworth, Kansas, March 10, 1881), Emma Jane Higgins (Spencer) (born January 12, 1845 or [January 16, 1846 as reported July 4, 1898]), and Ella F. Higgins Clark (born October 2, 1851 [or June, 1851, as reported July 4, 1898]).
Although forty-three years old, David J. Higgins enlisted for three years service at New Salem, Columbiana County, Ohio, on May 6, 1861. He was mustered in as the Captain of Company C, 24th Ohio Volunteer Infantry Regiment on June 3, 1861, at Camp Chase, Columbus, Ohio. He was 6 feet tall, with a light complexion, blue eyes, and dark hair.
At the Battle of Cheat Mountain, (West) Virginia, on September 13, 1861, Captain Higgins demonstrated some tactical ability. At the head of a reinforced company of soldiers, he emerged from Cheat Mountain Fort, attacked and drove off part of a Confederate Brigade assigned to take and hold the road from Cheat Mountain Summit to Cheat Mountain Pass, (West) Virginia. 

Higgins' age began to catch up with him after the 24th O.V.I.'s transfer to Middle Tennessee. First, rheumatism struck him hard in the Spring of 1862, near Nashville. An undated medical record noted that Captain Higgins was suffering from sub-acute Rheumatism of two months standing. In September, 1862, Higgins contracted a disease of the liver and chronic Nephritis, in consequence of which he was granted leave from active field duty in the Army of the Ohio's Special Order Number 159, dated September 30, 1862. His new assignment detailed him to lighter duty as commander of Park Hospital Barracks, Louisville, Kentucky. 

After the death of the 24th O.V.I.'s senior officers during the Battle of Stones River, Higgins was promoted to colonel and recalled from Louisville to command the 24th Ohio Infantry Regiment on January 14, 1863. The brigade commander, Colonel William Grose, discovered that Higgins was still physically unfit for active field duty, so Grose obtained light duty for Higgins. The Department of the Cumberland's Special Order Number 137, dated May 20, 1863, reassigned Higgins as commander of the Convalescent Camp at Murfreesboro, Tennessee. A second medical certificate, filed June 2, 1863, diagnosed Colonel Higgins to be suffering from sub-acute Lumbar Myelitis, and the medical officer opioned that Higgins was unfit for duty. 

Still, with the shortage of experienced field officers during the Chickamauga Campaign, Higgins was recalled yet again. In September, he was again in command of the 24th O.V.I. as it marched over Lookout Mountain into Georgia. At the Battle of Chickamauga, his rheumatism again acted up to the point where he could barely move. Consequently, he turned over command of his regiment to Major Thomas McClure on the morning of September 20, 1863. When the 24th Ohio broke apart during the Army of the Cumberland's withdrawal from the battlefield on the evening of September 20, 1863, an enraged Colonel Grose confronted the problem at the brigade's campsite near Chattanooga. Grose obtained permission to dismiss Major McClure and Colonel Higgins for cowardice. 

When he received this notification of his dismissal, Higgins asked each of his company commanders if they thought he was a coward. Every officer agreed that he was not a coward, but was physically unfit for service due to his rheumatism. A military court of inquiry accepted the regimental officer's signed statement that Higgins' maladies were the real reasons why he had turned over his command to McClure, and the military court reversed the act of dismissal for cowardice. However, Higgins could only find one honorable way out of the service, and he resigned his commission due to disability on October 23, 1863. Although Colonel Grose did not agree with the court's findings, he hastily endorsed Higgins' resignation. The resignation was accepted under Department of the Cumberland Special Order Number 283, dated October 23, 1863. Higgins immediately made his way home. 
Returning to his Columbiana County, Ohio, home following his resignation in early November, 1863, Higgins found that the newspapers had already reported his dismissal due to cowardice. With his reputation suffering in the community due to the uncorrected newspaper reports, David J. Higgins and his family decided to move to Minnesota. They arrived at Brooklyn Center, Hennepin County, Minnesota, on or about November 20, 1863. There, David J. Higgins got a new start, and he took up his former profession as minister of the gospel. 

His wife, Cynthia Weeks Higgins, died on July 12, 1876 [or June 1877, according to another affidavit July 7, 1898], at Atwater, Kandiyohi County, Minnesota. Higgins, now a widower, himself married a minister's widow, Esther Anne (Doughty) Havens, on December 25, 1877 (or November 23, 1878 as stated in July 4, 1898) at Menomonie, Dunn County, Wisconsin. Reverend Edward Doughty performed the ceremony. 

Now, nearly seventy-five years old, David J. Higgins applied for, and received a pension August 7, 1890 at Brooklyn Center, Hennepin County, Minnesota. His rank was only listed as that of a captain due to his resignation. Higgins moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota, by July, 1898, and took up residence at 2935 Aldrich Avenue. 

Esther, his second wife, died at Chattanooga, Tennessee, on August 10, 1902. Shortly, thereafter, David Higgins moved to 915 Maple Street, Pasadena, California. By March 18, 1915, he was again working on the pension bureau's records.

David J. Higgins died February 2, 1917, at Pasadena, California, and is interred at Mountain View Cemetery, Altadena, Los Angeles County, California.

HIGGINS & CO., marble works, Bloomington. It is often supposed that good work in the marble and monument business cannot be obtained anywhere except in a few of our larger cities This is a mistake, as is evinced by the superior talent exhibited and work produced by Messrs. Higgins & Co., since their establishment in Bloomington ; these gentlemen commenced business in 1876, and have turned out some of the finest work in Bloomington ; they are now furnishing one of the finest monuments for the Bloomington Cemetery; its weight will be thirteen tons, and this will be the finest piece of work in the cemetery; this firm employs more hands than any other establishment of its kind in Bloomington; the firm is Mr. J. P. Jung, a native of Illinois, who came to Bloomington in 1869. and has had many years' experience in the marble business and Mr. H. J. Higgins, a native of Ohio, who enlisted in the late war in Co. D. 59th Ohio V. I.. and participated in the battles of Stone River, Mission Ridge. Perryville. Chickasaw Mountain, Lookout Mountain. Dallas, Kennesaw Mountain, Atlanta, etc.: with the exception of three months' sickness, Mr. Higgins was always at his post; after being mustered out as Sergeant, he reenlisted, in 1865, in Co. E, 192d Ohio V. I., as 1st Lieutenant; here he was detailed as Provost Marshal: also Judge Advocate Court Martial two months ; after the close of the war, he returned to Ohio. In 1868, he came to Illinois, where he has been engaged in the marble business ever since. All persons dealing with them may be assured of the most honorable treatment and the most skillful workmanship.

JOHN M. HIGGINS.
May 12, 1882.—Committed to the Committee of the Whole House and ordered to be printed.
Mr. Geddes, from the Committee on War Claims, submitted the following
REPORT:
[To accompany bill H. R. 3411.]
The Committee on War Claims, to whom has referred the bill (H. R. 3411) for the relief of John M. Higgins, report as follows:
That the bill authorizes and directs the accounting officers of the Treasury Department to audit and pay to John M. Higgins, late a lieutenant of Company A, Thirty-third Regiment of Ohio Volunteer Infantry, his accounts against the government the same as if he had never been court-martialed and dismissed the service, but had been honorably discharged there from.
It appears from the proof submitted that this officer was mustered into service as second lieutenant, Company A, Thirty-third Ohio Volunteers, August 27, 1861, and is reported promoted to first lieutenant, same company and regiment. May 9,1862; that he was tried by general court martial and sentenced to be dismissed the service for absence without leave, with loss of all pay and allowances, which sentence was promulgated in General Orders No. 86, April 20, 1862, Department of the Cumberland; that application was made to the War Department in 1871 for such relief as could be granted in the case, and, thereupon, By direction of the President, the disability resulting from the dismissal was removed January 26, 1871.
The removal of the disability consequent upon the sentence did not operate to restore to Lieutenant Higgins the pay forfeited by the dismissal, but simply declared him qualified to re-enter the service in the future.
It is submitted that the nature of the offense and the severity of the sentence are such as appeal, certainly after this lapse of time, to the sense of justice in any impartial tribunal.
Your committee, therefore, in view of the foregoing statement of facts, report in favor of the passage of the bill.
