Pinkney Higgins
Uncle Pink Higgins Dies Suddenly At His Home J. P. Higgins died suddenly at 6 o´clock Sunday morning at his ranch home on Cat Fish, and the remains were interred Monday in Spur Cemetery. He had been suffering for some time of heart trouble, and his death, though not a surprise to interested friends, was unexpected at this time. Saturday afternoon he and his family were in Spur greeting their friends, and apparently he was in good health as usual. He was about 65 years old.
Uncle Pink Higgins was born in Alabama [Georgia] and while a babe in arms his parents came to Texas, settling near Lampasas in 1848. In the early history and reconstruction days of Texas, Uncle Pink Higgins became a noted character and in later years he was a distinguished citizen. In the early days when the only recognized law was the "the survival of the fittest," Uncle Pink played a leading part in events of reconstruction and maintaining right and justice, and in doing so numerous encounters in feuds and factions resulted, the recounting of which would make interesting history of reconstruction days in Texas, and the events in the past life of our honoured and lamented citizen today would read more like romance than fact.

About fifteen years ago Uncle Pink Higgins came with his family to this section of the country, settled and established a farm and ranch home on Cat Fish where he resided until his death.

Uncle Pink was known personally and by reputation over a greater portion of Texas, and his friendship was as wide as his acquaintanceship. He was a man true to his friends, true to his ideals and at all times was a man among men. Throughout the sixty five years his life was typical of real Western manhood, and in every instance stood in defence of the right, promoted just ice and the effectual service rendered to the country and to civilization by Uncle Pink Higgins will be long remembered and his name honoured by Texas citizenship.

We knew Uncle Pink personally and intimately, loved and appreciated him as a real man, and in his passing to the Unknown Beyond we feel confident that whatever may be in that Future he has earned and deserves an exalted place among the immortals.

Higgins Family of Tarrant Texas

Inquiry Billie Marie Higgins Preston
            BPreston1 AT hot.rr.com

Where did your Higgins ancestor come from? Ireland,
England, Kentucky, Ga, TN. Settled in Texas

I can trace back to my Great Grand Father, John Washington Higgins. (I'm 75, so that is a good ways back) However have no info on his father. My great grandfather was born in Roane County, TN in 1841 and married Louisa J. Hale. Have been unable to locate anything on his mother and father.
She also adds;
   Charlie Alvin always went by Bill because his father,
   Robert Jonathan Higgins, was called Bob. and
   Henry Etta was always called Etta.
   Lillie Marie went by Marie. And of course
   I was Billie Marie.
 Robert Jonathan was the son of John Washington Higgins and Louisa Judy Hale. And I'm stopped right there. I know all of my Grandfather Robert (Bob) Higgins family and who they married, etc. but have nothing on my Great Grandfather's name back in Tennessee and Kentucky or Georgia. I did find the piece about George Albert, who was John Washington's brother, but can't seem to locate anything else about their names or where they came from, except I always understood from Ireland.

Oak Hill Cemetery (Texas Historical Marker)
Hartwell Fountain sold ten acres of land to the City of Lampasas in 1872, to establish this cemetery. Originally known as City Cemetery, it was renamed Oak Hill Cemetery in 1908. The Ladies Cemetery Association, a group of concerned Lampasas women maintained the cemetery from 1891 to 1948, when the city assumed responsibility. Among those buried here are local pioneers, prominent business people, veterans of wars including the Texas Revolution and the Civil War, and their descendants. (1992)
