HENRY HIGGINS 

Henry Higgins, pilot of the fire-boat J. M. Hutchinson, was born at Buffalo, December 18, 1859. His father, John Higgins, was a native of Ireland, whence he came to Buffalo, N.Y. The mother's maiden name was Margaret Chambers. Mr. Higgins, our subject, was educated in the public schools of his native city, and his first employment on the water was as a ferry boy on Buffalo creek, at which he commenced to work at the early age of nine years. He was next linesman on the tug J.D. Dudley, and in 1881 became engineer of the tug Idaho, for the seven succeeding years serving as engineer of various harbor tugs in Buffalo harbor. His next service was as master of the tug C.T. Dennis, in about 1883, and he continued as master of different tugs until July 8, 1893, when he was appointed to the position of pilot of the fire-boat J. M. Hutchinson. Mr. Higgins was master of the tugs in Buffalo harbor some thirteen years. In addition to those above mentioned he was on the tug Lone Star two years, tug Queen City five years, also in the White Star line one year on different tugs, and he has never been off the creek since he came on it as a ferry boy.
In 1889 Mr. Higgins was married at Buffalo to Miss Ellen Moore, daughter of Michael Moore, of Rochester. They have no children. He has been a member of the Catholic Mutual Benefit Association six years, the Fireman's Beneficial Association three and a half years, the Buffalo Masters & Pilots Association since April, 1896.

THOMAS HIGGINS

Thomas Higgins was born March 24, 1861 in Buffalo, N. Y. where he acquired his education in the public schools. In the summer of 1870 he took the ferry boat in Buffalo creek, and carried passengers for three seasons, besides running an engine on the docks. This work was followed by service in various capacities on the tugs D. P. Dye, J. C. Parker, Annie P. Dorr, Bruce, Rambler and Crowle, and as engineer of the James Adams. In the spring of 1883, he was appointed engineer of the tug Alpha; 1884, of the James Ash, and in 1885, of the George R. Hand. He was instrumental in saving the Captain of the Lillie May, which was waterlogged, and at anchor in a sinking condition off Dunkirk; and that same fall, with the assistance of the tug Williams, he brought into Buffalo Harbor the barge Hoag, which was in distress. In the spring of 1886, he was transferred to the tug T. M. Moore. The following season he brought out new the tug George R. Donaldson, and in 1888 he took the engines of the E. C. Maytham and ran her two seasons, with the exception of a short time at the close of 1889, when he took the Genevieve, owned by Hingston & Woods. In 1891 he went to Cleveland and ran the tug Chamberlain one season, returning to Buffalo the next spring to go on the Alpha as engineer. He continued in the employ of the Maytham Tug line until the close of 1896, engineering in 1893 the tug O. W. Cheney, 1894, the Alpha, 1895, the Acme, and in 1896 the John Kelderhouse. He is a member of the Buffalo Harbor Tug Association and of the  American Association of Masters and Pilots.  Mr. Higgins was wedded to Miss Elizabeth Conway, of  Buffalo, in 1888. Three children have been born to this union: Thomas E., Gertrude E., and Nellie. The family residence is as at 149 Vandalia street, Buffalo, New York.
