Burial: Bryn Zion Cemetery, Mount Gilead, Ohio

Dean Warren HigginsDean Warren Higgins, age 81, of 5701 St. Route 42 N, Mount Gilead, died unexpectedly on Friday, May 26, 2006, at the home of his birth doing what he loved, working with his tractors on his farm.
Dean was born on March 13, 1925, the son of the late Clark and Josie (Fogle) Higgins. He graduated from Mount Gilead High School on May 28, 1943.
On July 28, 1945, Dean was drafted into the U.S. Army serving during World War II overseas as a 5th grade technician, a military policeman, and telephone switchboard operator.
A lifelong farmer and “hard worker,” Dean began working on the farm as soon as he became able to do his chores. He milked cows, chopped wood, raised cattle and seven children, and then grain farmed until he semi retired to care for his wife Frieda. Being so in tune with nature, on a humid sultry August night he could “hear the corn grow at night.” Every spring he looked forward to the new beginning and the planting of seeds.
On January 14, 1962, Dean married his loving wife of over 42 years, Frieda Mae (Field) Higgins, who preceded him in death on November 4, 2004. Together, Frieda and Dean, enjoyed traveling and doing mission work together, making several trips to Alaska and others to Michigan. They also enjoyed traveling and playing dominos with their dear friends.
Dean has been an active member of the Bryn Zion Baptist Church all of his life, holding several positions in the church and was currently serving as the Head Deacon, and the Assistant Superintendent. He truly lived his Christian beliefs, and was an “angel on earth” to his wife, family, and friends.
Dean was a member of Gideon’s, the Farm Bureau Council a.k.a. “Halves and Better Halves,” the Antique Tractor Association, and the Silver King Tractor Club. He also volunteered with Meals on Wheels, and became the infamous “live raccoon trapper” for Hospice of Morrow County.
As a father, Dean will be remembered for having the “patience of Job,” and for having a deep understanding and love for his children. As a “grandpa,” his “strong farm hands” became soft to hold each new grandchild, and he embodied exactly what a father and grandfather “should” be. Dean was deeply loved and will be truly missed by his family and friends.
He is survived by his loving children, which include four sons Robert C. Trainer, Michael L. Trainer, and James H. (Joanne) Trainer all of Mount Gilead, and Thomas D. (Julie) Trainer of New Carlisle, Ohio; two daughters Laura E. (Danny) Young and Susan A. (Lonnie) Prater both of Mount Gilead; a daughter-in-law, Rita Trainer of Redding, California; 21 grandchildren; 32 great grandchildren and 3 more coming this fall; a sister-in-law Roberta Higgins; two nephews, a niece, and two great nieces.
In addition to his wife and parents, he was preceded in death by a son Larry E. Trainer; brother Ned P. Higgins (see obituary below); and a nephew Robert P. Higgins.
The family will greet friends on Tuesday from 4 – 8 p.m. at the Craven & Snyder Funeral Home, 67 North Main Street, Mount Gilead. Funeral services will be held on Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. at the Bryn Zion Baptist Church, 5520 County Road 240, Mount Gilead, with Pastor Jerry Mathias officiating. Burial with military honors by V.F.W. Post 8054 and AmVets Post 87 will follow at Bryn Zion Cemetery.
Memorial contributions can be made to Hospice of Morrow County, P. O. Box 86, Mount Gilead, Ohio 43338, Gideon’s International, P. O. Box 204 Mount Gilead, Ohio 43338, the American Heart Association, P. O. Box 182039, Columbus, Ohio 43218, or to the Senior’s on Center, Meals on Wheels, 41 West Center Street, Mount Gilead, Ohio 43338.

1911
Professor Clinton O. Higgins.—Talented and cultured, possessing the mental temperament, tastes and caliber that naturally incline one towards a professional career. Professor Clinton O. Higgins wisely chose teaching as a vocation, and is now successfully employed as superintendent of the Troy Township High School and as superintendent also, of the district schools of Troy township. A son of Enoch Higgins and his first wife, whose maiden name was Leah Lovett, and their only child. Professor Higgins was born on a farm in Franklin township, Morrow county, Ohio, and there spent his earlier life.
Laying a substantial foundation for his future education in the district schools of Franklin township. Clinton O. Higgins afterward continued his studies at the Mt. Gilead High School. On leaving that institution he began life as a teacher and taught school several terms. Desirous of further fitting: himself for his life work, he subsequently entered the Ohio Northern University, at Ada, and there completed the scientific course, receiving the well- earned degree of bachelor of science. Since his graduation from the university Professor Higgins has devoted his entire time and energies to teaching, having taught in the district schools and serving as superintendent of the Congress township district schools for two years. He was subsequently elected by local board of education as superintendent of the Troy Township High School and of its district schools, and is now serving his fourth year in that capacity, his retention in this position from year to year
being proof of his ability and success as an educator and superintendent.
Politically the Professor is a stanch advocate of the principles of the Republican party, and has served as chairman of the Morrow County Convention and as president of the Republican Central Committee. He has also been clerk of Franklin township. Fraternally he is a member of Chester Lodge, No. 283, A. F. and A. M., of which he is past master; of Gilead Chapter, No. 59, R. A. M.; of Eveline Chapter, No. 146, 0. E. S.. of Chesterville; and of the Charles H. Hull Lodge, No. 195, K. of P. He is also a member of the Sons of Veterans Camp at Mt. Gilead, Ohio. Religiously Professor Higgins belongs to the Pulaskiville Methodist Episcopal church, and has served as superintendent of its Sunday school. For six years he was one of the members of the board of school examiners for Morrow county, retiring from the position in August, 1910. He is one of the stockholders of the Morrow County Telephone Company, one of the more important enterprises of this part of the
state.
Professor Higgins makes his home in Franklin township, where he was born, reared and educated, and where he is held in the highest esteem for his sterling worth and high integrity of character as a cultured gentleman and faithful teacher.

Higgins families of Pike Township of Brown County Ohio


HIGGINS, James D.
James D. Higgins was among the earlier settlers, having come to Pike township in 1818. He taught a school the first year he was here on the Allen farm. He was a native of North Carolina, and was married in 1822 to Nancy Fiscus. He settled on the farm now the property of Elizabeth Strain; died in 1837, and his remains were interred in the old Allen Graveyard, on the land now owned by Charlotte Carr. Nancy survived him many years and died in 1877. They had nine children--Robert, Mary, Dow, Sarah, William, Andrew, Nancy, John and James (Higgins), all of whom are still living, five being residents of the township.
