Mr. Higgins's early life was passed in the public schools of Bridgeport. He filled various situations satisfactorily until the year 1881 when an opportunity for entering the grocery trade offered itself, which he accepted. Having succeeded to the business of Joseph Waterman, he brought to it the energy and uprightness which had always characterized him, and which have made him the successful business man that he is.

HARVEY A. HIGGINS.
Harvey A. Higgins, general manager of the Standard Tool Company of Cleveland, was born near Chicago, May 3, 1866, a son of Lewis H. and Jennie E. (McGlashan) Higgins. His early education was acquired in the public schools. Being eager to make for himself a place in the business world, he secured employment as a clerk in a wholesale grocery establishment, where he remained for two and a half years. On the expiration of that period he became associated with the Washburn & Moen Manufacturing Company, which later became a part of the American Steel & Wire Company. He was identified with that
enterprise for ten years and next became president of the Chicago Fire Proof Covering Company, manufacturers of asbestos products. He has been a resident of Cleveland for a decade, during which period he has been general manager of the Standard Tool Company. His previous important business connections had made him well known in industrial and manufacturing circles, leading to his present business connection, which is one of large responsibility. He is also one of the directors of the company and thus has voice in the financial affairs as well as general management over the business of the company.

Mr. Higgins married Miss Martha Paine, of St. Louis, and they have three children, Harvey A., Jr., Robert Rhea and Margaret. The eldest is a graduate of the Cleveland high school and attended Oberlin College, wherein he pursued a classical course. Robert was graduated from the Shaw high school of Cleveland and is now pursuing a scientific course in Dartmouth College. The daughter is a pupil in the Hathaway-Brown school. The family residence is at 11408 Bellflower Road. Mrs. Higgins is a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. In his political views Mr. Higgins is a republican and keeps well informed on the questions and issues of the day, but prefers to concentrate his energies upon his business affairs rather than become an active factor in political circles.
He attends the Calvary Presbyterian church, of which he is a trustee, and he is a member of the Union and Colonial Clubs. In the Chamber of Commerce he is serving as director and is imbued with that progressive spirit which, manifest in the officers and directors of the Chamber, have made it a potent force in the city's up-building. He is fond of all manly outdoor sports and his is a well balanced nature in which the different interests, political, social, business and moral, are given their relative prominence.

SKETCH OF THE LIFE OF JUDGE DAVID HIGGINS.

David Higgins was the eldest son of Rev. David and Eunice (Gilbert) Higgins. He was born at Lyme, Conn., August 2, 1789. His father at that time was pastor of the church at Lyme. In 1801 his father and family removed to Aurelius, now the city of Auburn, N. Y. During their residence there, David, Jr., was for two years a student at Yale College. In 1812 his father was called to the Presbyterian Church at Bath, New York. Before this David went to Cambridge, Maryland, as tutor in a private family. While there he made the acquaintance of and married Miss Cecilia Davis of Harper's Ferry, Virginia. They soon after removed to Angelica, New York, where he practiced law for a few years. Their oldest son, Robert, was born here. Before 1816 they removed to Hamilton, Ohio, performing the journey on horseback, Mrs. Higgins carrying their infant son most of the time before her. In 1818 or 1819 they removed again to Springfield, Ohio, where in 1820 their third child, a
daughter, Mary, was born. While living in southern Ohio, he represented Butler county in the Ohio legislature. In 1828 they removed to Norwalk, Ohio, where he practiced law for many years through northern Ohio, until his appointment as Circuit Judge. While Judge Higgins was holding court at Maumee in 1837-8, the celebrated "Toledo war" arose, the cause being a dispute over the boundary between Ohio and Michigan, which was decided by Judge Higgins in favor of the Ohio contention, causing rebellion on the part of the Michiganites, which necessitated the United States taking a hand in the fight. Congress gave Michigan the upper peninsula in return for the little strip she gave up to Ohio just north of Toledo.

He resided in 1841 and 1842 in Maumee City, after that returning to Norwalk until, after the election of James K. Polk, he went to Washington, D. C., where he received a clerkship in the Treasury Department, which he retained until his death, which occurred in 1873. His wife died in Washington in October, 1846. In 1848 he married Miss Letitia King of Washington, who, with two children, a daughter and a son, survived him. During his residence in Norwalk in 1834, his horse running away, he, in jumping from the carriage, shattered his foot so that amputation was necessary between the knee and ankle, so that ever after he wore a cork leg.

Mrs. Mary Higgins Gibbs.*
*Mrs. Gibbs, niece of Judge David Higgins, was born in Bath, N. Y., 1826. She came to Norwalk, Ohio., 1835. She is in her eigthy-flrst year.—James G. Gibbs

Source: History of the Republican party in Ohio
edited by Joseph Patterson Smith - Published by Lewis Publishing Company, 1898

OWEN S. HIGGINS, who has been an active adherent of the Republican party and an important factor in its local affairs, cast his first vote at the age of eighteen, when he exercised the specially granted privilege extended to all soldiers in the Rebellion and deposited his ballot while on duty in the breastworks before Atlanta. On May 18, 1897, he was appointed postmaster of Lebanon by President McKinley, assuming his official duties on the 1st of July, and he has given most efficient and satisfactory service, reflecting credit both upon himself and the party he represents.

The birth of Mr. Higgins took place in Hamilton county, Ohio, May 15, 1846, his parents being Peter and Elizabeth Higgins, the former of whom died when our subject was but six years of age, and the mother surviving but a short time thereafter. Owen S. subsequently came to Warren county, where he passed his youth among strangers, working for his board and attending school until seventeen years old, and then enlisted in Company E, Seventy-ninth Ohio Volunteer Infantry, in February, 1863, serving faithfully and loyally until 1865, when, in July of that year, he was mustered out. He participated in the Atlanta campaign and was with Sherman on his memorable march to the sea; he took part in all the principal battles of the above campaigns, and was never absent from his regiment, although at one time he was transferred from the Seventy-ninth to the Seventy-third Infantry.

After the close of the war Mr. Higgins engaged in farm work and pursued his studies in the district schools, after leaving which he learned the blacksmith's trade and later embarked in the grocery business, conducting the same for some years at Loveland, Warren county, until about 1892, when he moved to Lebanon and has since continued here, meeting with that distinct success that is ever the logical result of intelligently applied industry, perseverance and honesty of purpose. At one time Mr. Higgins was engaged in the real-estate business in Cincinnati. Although he has always been a worker in the local field and in the district, county and state conventions, he never before held public office, with the exception of township assessor and member of the school board. He is known as a local organizer, working in his own quiet way, and has been active in every campaign, both local and national, for the past thirty-five years. As a stanch Republican Mr. Higgins is in thorough sympathy with the principles of his party, and believes in protection to our home industries, sound money, arbitration and the restriction of immigration.

In his social relations Mr. Higgins is an enthusiastic and active member of Granvel Thurston Post, Grand Army of the Republic, and is affiliated with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows.

The marriage of Mr. Higgins was celebrated in 1873, when he was united to Miss Lyddia Stark, of Clermont county, and the following children have been born to them: Adda F., and Lyddia, who died in 1875. Mr. Higgins' second wife, whom he married in 1877, was Miss Amanda M. Hill, of Warren county, Ohio. One son was born by this marriage, and named Robert Roy, and he died in 1891.
