6.
Charles Higgins
(Unknown1
    
was born Bet. 1790 - 1795 in Summerhill, Co. Meath, Ireland, and 
    died Bef. 1879 in Summerhill, Co. Meath, Ireland. 
    He married Catherine Byrne
                   She was born Abt. 1797 in Summerhill, Co. Meath, Ireland4, and 
                   died December 31, 1879 in Agher, Summerhill, Co. Meath, Ireland4.

Notes for Charles Higgins:

The relationship between Charles, Margaret, & Ambrose Higgins, all of whom are later found in Moy townland, and the other Higgins, associated with Clondoogan townland, is a "best guess". There is, however, ample evidence to suggest that the Clondoogan family was related to the Moy family and the this "guess" is likely correct. These two towns border each other. There are common names in both families as well as common sponsors for baptisms. Charles Higgins' wife was sister to Lawrence Fullam's wife. Lawrence's daughter, Elinor, married Thomas Higgins, Charles' presumed brother.

Perhaps the most compelling evidence is the death record for a Catherine Higgins in Agher. Catherine was 82 at the time (1879). Present at the time of her death is Michael Higgins. This is most likley her son given the ages. Seven years later, Michael Higgins dies and present at his death is a cousin, William Higgins. Michael is 63 at the time making his birth year about 1823. If William is a cousin, he would be the son of a brother of Catherine's husband. Could this be the same Catherine who was married to Charles Higgins? If so, William would have to be Thomas Higgins's son, brother of Laurence Higgins.

There is no record of a Michael Higgins being born to Charles and Catherine, but there is a gap of several years between Simon (1821) and Ellen (1826) when Michael could have been born and which would fit with his age. It would not be unusual to not be able to find the record as those that do still exist are in marginal condition at best. If this is all correct, Charles would have been an older brother of Thomas, so likely born in the early 1790s.

When one looks at the entire body of evidence, I think this all makes sense.

       Children of Charles Higgins and Catherine Byrne are:

22 i. Margaret Higgins
       born November 1817 in Moy, Summerhill, Co. Meath, Ireland5;
       died Unknown.
       Baptism: November 12, 1817, Moy, Summerhill, Co. Meath, Ireland

24 iii. Simon Higgins

25 iv. Michael Higgins
         born Abt. 1823 in Summerhill, Co. Meath, Ireland6
         died January 23, 1886 in Agher, Summerhill, Co. Meath, Ireland6.

Notes for Michael Higgins:

There's no record of Michael Higgins being born or christened to/by Charles & Catherine. However, the age fits and there is a gap in the births for which there are records for, Simon born in 1821 and Ellen born in 1826. Michael would have been born between these two.

Notes for Thomas Higgins:

Although the connection with the famous O'Higgins, Ambrosio O'Higgins and Bernardo O'Higgins, is not definite, it is possible. Ambrosio O'Higgins was actually born Ambrose Higgins. The O' was added later by Ambrose himself. Also, there is some debate as to where Ambrosio was born. Although some texts give his place of birth as Co. Sligo, many others list Co. Meath, specifically, in or near Summerhill parish in Co. Meath. This is the same parish that Thomas Higgins was from.

From the Tithes Book, 1839: Thomas Higgins, Clondoogan, 0.3 acres of 7th class farmland, 44 acres of 17th class farmland.

Notes for Laurence Higgins:

Laracor is the civil parish, the Catholic parish is Summerhill. Clondoogan is the townland.

In an email dated 2/16/02, Coleen Higgins wrote: "Lawrence was Head Gardener at St. Joseph's School for the deaf. He evidently had a long beard. He supervised the deaf/mute laborers and when it was time for his lunch they would sign "long beard" to Mary so she would know to bring his food! The story on Lawrence is that he was one of four brothers: Ambrose (my father's godfather), Timothy, and supposedly Bernardo"
