DISCLAIMER: This page is meant for informational purposes and to locate descendents of other HIGGINS within the families listed below. Some facts are not yet proven through birth/marriage/death records and are subject to change as there may be errors. The information provided in this page are from sources such as census records, birth, marriage and death records located in these cities within Vermont: Ferrisburgh, Vergennes, Rutland and Ira. Some records have also been located in Quebec, Canada and online at Rootsweb.com. Not all sources are listed as this page is meant as an INTRODUCTION to my HIGGINS family, not a conclusive & all-inclusive research page. If you have a question or comment regarding this page, please email me: pakuderm@comcast.net 

This information on HIGGINS includes the following Surnames:
 HIGGINS <>, GRAY <>, CLEMENS/CLEMON <>, SEARS/CYRE, FARRELL <>, GASLOW/GASLAW <>, LATOUR <>, STACY <>, WELCH <>, SUMNER <>, JONDRO/JONDREAU <>, BRIGHT <>, LARAWAY <>.

I firmly believe in giving credit where credit is due. So, with that in mind, I would like to thank Nancy Hess in Vergennes, VT for her extensive help in researching my HIGGINS family, and Mr. & Mrs. Butler, along with Ms. Stene, for sharing their extensive research with me on the FARRELL family.

It was with the tremendous and generous help of Mrs. Hess that I have discovered and secured much of the information included in this page. With her help I learned my great-great-grandmotherís maiden name and secured several birth/death records from Ferrisburgh & Vergennes, Addison County, VT. I was also able, with her help, to confirm the maiden name of my great-great-great-grandmother, Margaret SEARS/CYRE (the name was flipped between the two spellings on various documents and she was a French Canadian). In addition to this, with the information she helped me find, I was able to secure a baptism record for Jonas L. HIGGINS, showing his parents were Benjamin HIGGINS and Mary/Marg. Lawrence.

As of July 2004, I have been unable to locate where my great-great grandmother, Susannah Elizabeth (FARRELL) HIGGINS died. I believe she died in Rutland Co., VT, but have been unable to locate a certificate of death, yet. However, in light of the fact that I cannot find the daughters, Etta, Jessie, Flora and Bertha on the 1900 Census, I am beginning to wonder if Susannah remarried after Jonas1 died in 1895. Their son, Wallace, was found on the 1900 Census living with Susannahís sister, Lucinda (FARRELL) HIGGINS, widow of William HIGGINS, who was Jonasí brother.

My great-grandmother, Bertha Jane HIGGINS, who married John William GRAY in 1902 in Rutland County. From Vermont, Bertha & John traveled back to his native Rawdon, Montcalm Co., PQ and lived out the remainder of their lives on GRAY FARM in Rawdon. John & Birdie are both buried in the Anglican Churchyard in Rawdon.
