    and died Bef. 1942 in County Roscommon, Ireland.

Notes for MICHAEL HIGGINS:
Michael was listed as a land owner in the 1847-1864 Griffiths Valuation  Index for County Roscommon. Barony: Castlereach Parish: Kilcorkey Townland: Tully.

During the Great Famine, over 31% of the population of County Roscommon immigrated. They were hit very hard by this great disaster. Michael's family was born during a very bad time. For this reason, all but two of his children (Anne and Stephen) immigrated to America.

Notes for ELIZABETH HIGGINS:
Elizabeth's date of birth was not given in the church records of her baptism. She was baptized on May 3, 1868. Civil records list the date of birth as May 19, 1868. Of course, she could not have been baptized before she was born!

Notes for ANNE JANE HIGGINS:
The date of baptism is recorded as March 25, 1870. 
The date of birth as April 7, 1870. This information is from the County Roscommon Heritage and Genealogical Company. Of course, this does not make sense.

Notes for ANNE HIGGINS:
There were no Catholic Church records of this child's baptism. 
Therefore, it is very likely that this child died shortly after birth. She did not immigrate to New Jersey and there is no mention of her in family history.
