My great-great grandfather, Wales Higgins, was born somewhere in New York State on 18 January, 1823 and died in Allen County, Indiana 26 March, 1897. No known descendant knows who his parents were but census records consistently show his father born in Massachusetts and mother in Virginia. Wales shows up in Erie County, Ohio by 1842 marrying Mary E. Higgins there and starting a family.

For years I and other descendants have tried to find his ancestry and can’t.
Do you have any suggestions?

This is a photo of Wales about 1893 taken in Hicksville, Ohio (on the Indiana border).

Seeking info on my G’father, Dennis Higgins. He was born in Ireland, circa 1853. I get the date from US Census Records. I have not been able to find any information on his roots in Ireland. Once in the US he lived all his life in South Amboy, NJ. Dennis died there on May 19, 1928. All paper I have found here in the US only says “Ireland” for birth data. One piece of paper I have not found is any info on naturalization. Gladly accept any thoughts, or direction from more accomplished hunters.

I am looking for the names of my Great-grandfather, Samual Higgins.
He was born in NY on March 13, 1814, and sometime thereafter he moved to Shelby, Indiana where he lived until he died on July 12, 1898. He stated in the 1880 Census that both his parents were born in NY, this may or may not be true. It means that they were born in NY at least 1770. Was there any Higgins’s in NY at that time?

Webmaster's notes:
  a) Yes there were Higgins' in New York, as well as Maine, Vermont
       and other New England States back to the early 1700's if not earlier.
  b) as for the place of birth of Samuel, each census states the same info.
      The only variation is on Rebecca's census, it states Pa & Oh.)
