COL. JACOB C. HIGGINS.

Colonel Jacob C. Higgins was born March 7th, 1826, in Williamsburg, Huntingdon County, Pa., now Blair County, Pa. (Son of John and Mary R. Higgins.) He served in the Mexican War in Company M, Second Regiment, Pennsylvania Infantry, under General Scott, and was severely wounded inside the gates of the City of Mexico, at its capture. Was mustered out July 2ist, 1848. At the outbreak of the Rebellion, in 1861, he was at Portage Iron Works, at Duncansville, Pa., and promptly responded to the first call for troops by Governor Curtin, who telegraphed him to come to Harrisburg at once. He was then Colonel of the First Regiment, Fourth Brigade, Eleventh Division, Pennsylvania Militia. On April 20th, 1861, he was commissioned Captain and Quartermaster of the Second Brigade (General Wynkoop's) under General Patterson. In July, 1861, he was mustered out of service, and at once recruited Company G, First Pennsylvania Cavalry, and was commissioned Captain August 1st, 1861. On September 27th, he was promoted to Lieutenant-Colonel of the First Pennsylvania Cavalry, and commanded five companies. At the battle of Drainesville, December 20th, 1861, he led the first charge into the town. He resigned in 1862, and helped to recruit the " I25th Regiment," Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, and was commissioned its Colonel, August i6th, 1862. He was at South Mountain, but not engaged in battle; was at the battle of Antietam, September 17th, during the whole day, the regiment sustaining a heavy loss. Was with the regiment en route to Fredericksburg, and was at Chancellorsville, Va. In that five days' battle he commanded the left wing, Second Brigade, Geary's Division, Twelfth Army Corps, and while General T. L. Kane was temporarily disabled, he was in command of the Second Brigade. When the term of the regiment expired, he was mustered out at Harrisburg, May 18th. 1863. In June, 1863, just before the Battle of Gettysburg, he was ordered by Major General Couch and Governor Curtin to take command of all troops in southwestern Pennsylvania, to head off General Imboden, who was at Hancock with orders from General Lee to move on Altoona, burn up the shops, tear up the Pennsylvania Railroad and gather supplies, which a large force of volunteers and militia prevented. Colonel Higgins then assisted in recruiting a battalion of five cavalry companies, which formed part of the Twenty-second Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteer Cavalry.

As Colonel of the Regiment he participated in the Shenandoah Valley and mountains of West Virginia, and commanded the Brigade most of the time, also General Stahl's Division for some time, and after the surprise and capture of the post at New Creek he was ordered by General Sheridan to march at once to New Creek, assume command and put it in fighting condition. His command was the Second Brigade, Second Division, Department of West Virginia, with three field batteries, one fort, and 3,000 or 4,000 troops, covering Hancock, Mel., to Piedmont, W. Va., with headquarters at New Creek. He remained there until the close of the war, and was mustered out July 21st, 1865. He was a member of the U. V. L. No. 60, and Emery Fisher Post No. 30, G. A. R., Johnstown, Pa., until his death, which occurred June 1, 1893. He was buried in the cemetery of Johnstown, Pa.

 PLAN MONUMENT FOR COLONEL J. HIGGINS
 Comrades Will Erect Fine Shaft for Blair County  Soldier and Wife
 
 A monument for Col. Jacob Higgins, of the 125th Regiment of Pennsylvania volunteers is to be erected in the near future. A meeting of the Monument committee of the Regimental association was held in the office of  J. D. Hicks yesterday afternoon. Comrades Carl, Dunn and Speelman reported they had visited Johnstown and could secure a fair sized granite shaft for $375.
 In view, however, of Mrs. Higgins also being buried along side of her husband, it was thought best to try and secure some additional [sic] money and erect a monument to cost not less than $500. The Union bank trustee of the fund reported $248.50 in bank. Comrade Carles suggested that a letter be sent at once to the survivors of the regiment requesting them to purchase the few remaining histories on hand and that our patriotic people be requested to send contributions to the Union bank. The committee will promptly fill orders for the history of a nominal price per volume and the Union bank will acknowledge, in the daily papers, contributions.
 Colonel Higgins was a Blair county soldier, a veteran of the Civil war as chaplain for three months and as a colonel of the 125th Infantry and 22 Cavalry. Mrs. Higgins was a patriotic woman, frequently visiting the regiment and worked in the regimental and brigade hospitals at Louden and Acqua Creek.
 The committee is composed of H. V. Carles, Thomas Miller, James Dunn, William R.   Speelman and J. D. Hicks.
