I am working on my wife's genealogy, and she is descended from Higgins' of Baltimore, MD. I came across your web page in my search, and wonder if you can be of help, or if maybe someone has unearthed some more information about our Higgins. My wife's relative is Majorie Rebecca Higgins, daughter of Richard 'Stonewall Jackson' Higgins (b. 1861, d. 1895) and Margaret Catherine Wright (b. 1865 and d. 1945). They had 2 other children: Myra and Richard (Dick)
Marjorie knew that Richard's father was William Higgins, no dates. We have searched the census records and figured out that the 1880 Polk directory and 1880 US Census list father William Higgins, engineer and son Richard, printer, living with William jr. (book keeper) and wife Rebecca. We also have figured out that father William Higgins married Josephine Dorman in 1843 and he died in 1892. 
That is all we know. 
If by chance if you have photos of William Higgins, or his son Richard Higgins, I'd be thrilled if you could email a copy to me.

Thanks,

Looking for Mary Higgins who was born in North Carolina, I think Burke County in the year 1800. She married Richard Golden abt. 1818. They moved to East Texas, Panola Co. from Blount Co. Ala. A certain Mills L. Higgins was in Blount Co. the same time as Mary and also on the same Texas 1850 census in Panola Co. I think they are brother and sister but have no proof. Mills parents are John Higgins and Rachel Young. Mills m. Martha Young



-Given the census Information, I would have to say that they were not related; 
  1850 states Mills was born in Kentucky, 1860 states Alabama 
  and on Mary's it states South Carolina

I am trying to find out more about the Higgins side of my family. I was Sheri Higgins daughter of Bill Higgins born I believe in Springfield, MO and Margaret Christophel. My dad's father was James W. Higgins married to Cleo (Dorothy) Wingo which both came from Springfield, MO. My grandfather's dad was Montgomery Monroe Higgins married to Delpha Latimer. I know my grandfather had two sisters and a brother. His sisters were Delores and Latepha(sp) and I don't know his brothers name.
Can someone help me?

This is a longshot of a guess but I found: 
Montgomery Monroe Higgins' ww1 draft card and it states Born September 12,1880 and he was listed as a Sheet metal worker at a company called Frisco, located in Springfield, Missouri. His nearest relative is his wife Delpha Higgins. 
   Looking at other Higgins residents I found that some of them also worked at Frisco. You may want to do some checking on some of the names.

Name Birth Date Race Birthplace Registration Place

 John Alfored Higgins 13 Jul 1878 White Not Stated, Greene, MO Carpenter at Frisco 
   Wife's name Mary E. Higgins

   Supervisor at Frisco R.R.

 C. C. Higgins, who was then superintendent of motive power, was killed in a railroad
    accident on November 5, 1920.

 Norris Norben Higgins 19 Sep 1873 White  Springfield, Greene,MO

I think that these are all related.

In the 1860 PA Clearfield Co. Census, JOHN C HIGGIN 76 and his wife ELECTRA HIGGIN age 61 lived in New Washington, Chest Twp. Clearfield Co. PA They also had two sons LEWIS age 26 and GEORGE age 24. All are listed as born in NEW YORK. Also living with them was Mary Hewit (my g.grandmother) age 15. I believe John Higgin was her Uncle. I am unable to find him in any 1850 census, PA or NY or any other for that matter.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Higgins - Laurens SC to Christian Co. Ky to Crawford Co. Illinois

Hi - I'm researching the Higgins Family, particularly James & Jesse Higgins who lived in Laurens Co. SC. around 1767-1800. Jesse migrated first to Christian Co. Ky and then to Crawford Co. Illinois. From information that I've found I believe Jesse could be the son of James Higgins whose first land purchase in Laurens Co. SC appears to be 1767. I'm interested in corresponding and collaborating with anyone related to or researching these lines.

Thanks, Sherry Harris

Just found your site and wondered if you might know anything about my Higgins. I have very little right now. 
Here it is:
John Higgins, wife Mariam. That's it for him.
John Higgins, b. 1778 in TN, m. Elizabeth Black abt. 1802 in TN, d. 1840 in MO. 
I have them with 12 children. I link through two of the girls who married into the Hatcher family. My link is through Katherine/Catherine who m. Harrison Hatcher in 1830.
Anything?

Hi. I am a descendent of Daniel and Sarah Riley Grooms of Polk Co TN--1854 thru 1890 or so. My Dad was born at nearby Cohutta in 1892. I can remember him speaking of the Higgins family, but didn't know the connection. When I was at Old Fort TN a few years ago, I tried to locate some of the Higgins family but was unsuccessful.

I just received my Polk Co Genealogical Society Quarterly with an article on the Higgins family. John Higgins, son of Ananias, married a Mary Grooms. Is it possible that this Mary is the daughter of my Daniel and Sally Grooms?

Please let me know if this is a connection. I've been able to find paper trails of the boys of Daniel but not the girls, except for one. Thanks for any assistance.

I am trying to find a connection for my great grandfather, Thomas H. Higgins. He was born in 1846. I believe he was born in Arkansas, but his parents were born in Tennessee (according to various census records). He lived in Conway and Perry County Arkansas. He was married to Rebecca Cobb. She was born in Georgia as were her parents. Thomas and Rebecca had several children, one of them was my maternal grandmother - Minnie Bell Higgins. Thanks for the help.

Joseph Higgins, born 1822 Nebraska. Joseph Higgins was a full blood Otoe, and received his name from the whites. In 1860 he married full blood Otoe Maggie De Roin. Maggie was born in Nebraska in 1824. In 1842 Joseph and Maggie had a son named John Higgins, who was born in Kansas. John Higgins was full blood Otoe. In 1862 John married Miriam Potter a full blood Otoe. Miriam was the daughter of Alonzo Potter and Mary In-the-Greathouse. John Higgins and Miriam Potter had a son named Robert Higgins born 1864 in Kansas. Robert Higgins was a full blood Otoe. Robert married a full blood Indian, Clara Ware who was 1/2 Delaware and 1/2 Sac and Fox. Robert and Clara had a son named Clarance Higgins born 1903 in Kansas. Clarance was full blood Indian, 1/2 Otoe,1/4 Delaware,1/4 Sac and Fox. Clarance Higgins married Utica Hayes born 1904 in Kansas. Utica was a full blood Indian. She was 3/4 Sac and Fox and 1/4 Otoe. Clarance and Utica had a son Robert Higgins born 1924 in Oklahoma. Robert was full blood Indian. 1/2 Sac and Fox, 3/8 Otoe, 1/8 Delaware. Robert Higgins was my grandpa, he married my grandma Gloria Fox born 1925 in Kansas. Gloria Fox was a full blood Sac and Fox. My father was born 1962 in Oklahoma. My father is full blood Indian and is 3/4 Sac and Fox, 3/16 Otoe and 1/16 Delaware. And then there is me Michael Higgins born 1982 in Oklahoma. So that is my Higgins family, from the first person in my family to be given the Higgins name all the way to me.
Thank you for your time.

Thank you,
Michael K. Higgins

Seeking information on Elizabeth Higgins. She was married to William M. Owens and they were the parents of Martha Ann Owens born June 14, 1840 in SC. 

I am seeking to find out if Elizabeth was a member of a Native American group, possibly Cherokee. Or, could it be that William M. Owens was a Cherokee? 
If you have information on this I would appreciate hearing from you. Thanks so much.

I am trying to find the parents of William Higgins
He was born in 1795 according to the marriage bond signed by his mother, Catharena Higgins on 18 December, 1816 in Rockingham County, Virginia. His wife was Nancy Harrison whose father was Thomas Harrison. They were in Tennessee shortly after that before moving to Orange County, Indiana. I am assuming William and Nancy both died in Indiana, but I have no verification. Thank you so much for your time.

I wonder whether you've been contacted by anyone else working on the Higgins' in Wheeling?

I descend from Robert and Anne (Lewis?) Higgins, who have their own household in Ohio County (W) VA in 1830. He was born ca 1802 in NJ, she was born England (both birth locations taken from census).

Robert and Anne had a number of children, only 3 of whom I can connect:

1. Martha Ann Higgins -- b. 1829/30, Ohio County (my grgrgrgrandmother)
2. Thomas Lewis / Louis Higgins -- b. 1838 (in the census usually as Louis)
3. Robert Taylor Higgins -- b. 1842

Robert Higgins is living next door to Thomas H. Higgins (photographer) in Wheeling in 1870, as your website confirms.
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~mjhiggins/wv.htm#thomash 
Along with several other clues, I think that my line and the Bernard Higgins line are connected. In fact, given their relative ages, I think Bernard and my Robert (b. 1802) must be brothers.

Have you come across anyone else looking into this family?

Thanks for any help.

My name is Diane Richards and I live in Florida. My father used to tell us about our family history and although he couldn't remember alot of it, it was fascinating to me growing up. 

Our family has been on Mnt. Desert Island since the late 1600's or early 1700's. My father used to say we've been on that island since Cadillac Mountain was 4 feet high. He told me that my great, great grandfather was Alonzo Higgins. He also told us that Alonzo had a daughter, Addie, who married my great grandfather, George Richards. He mentioned the name Royal Higgins as being Alonzo's brother. He said he wasn't sure of who was who but that his father used to tell him these things. My father passed away last month and I would like to be able to tell my children about our family history. 

George and Addie Higgins had two children, Hoyt and Georgia. George and Addie are buried at the Town Hill Cemetery. I don't think we were ever supposed to leave the great state of Maine as I hate the heat. We have been in Florida for 43 years. Our old family home is in Indian Point on Oak Hill Rd. My father sold it 4 years or so ago. The house had been in our family since the beginning of our history on the island. We have title deeds dating as far back as the early 1700's.

I keep trying to find things on the computer and so far, your place has been the only place I have found Alonzo's name. If you can shed any light on this for me, I would greatly appreciate it.

Sincerely,
Diane Richards Spinsterdaze@aol.com

A recent inquiry at
http://genforum.genealogy.com/higgins/messages/4595.html appears to be linked to this inquiry
The Genforum posting was
"I am looking for information on a Mary* Higgins married to Daniel Emmons Pray, probably Bar Harbor/Trenton area of Maine. Does anyone have information on either of these 2? They had a child named Fanny Pray (b. 1857). Fanny Pray married Charles Brown (b. 1857)--both from Bar Harbor"

The Mary mentioned most likely is actually Melissa Higgins

-Webmaster's findings-
In the 1850 Census for Royal & Sarah Higgins they have daughter named Melissa and she and her family are living next to the Pray family which is at the top of the image, the only one missing from the image because he was enumerated on a different page is  Eben Pray age 47, Male. Occupation listed as Seaman

I am trying to make a connection with Mansel Higgins William Higgins and Caleb Higgins. William and Mansel were more than likely brothers. I know their wives were sisters. 
Here's what i know:
James Henry (Polk) Higgins was born 1845 in Hamilton Co. TN. (1850 Census Hamilton Co. TN) and was living with his parents (George W. Higgins and Nancy ?). The family was living in Marion County, TN by 1860 and the elders died about 1899 and 1900 there. 
I need to connect these Higgins with the following: Richard Mancel Higgins, Absalom Higgins, William Higgins, Caleb Higgins, Moses Higgins and Riley Higgins, all from Walker Co. GA and Hamilton Co. TN area. I have reasons to believe that these people are closely connected to George W. Higgins but no documentation to support this. They were all always living close to each other. Do you have any Higgins relatives who were living in the Walker Co. GA or Hamilton Co. TN areas in the early 1800's? Please contact me, I would love to chat with you. Anyone researching this line of Higgins?

They were living in Marion Co. TN by 1860 with the following children: Wm M, age 15, Rebecca, age 12 , Martin A. age 10, John Franklin age 4 and Eliza, age 6 mos.

On Feb. 13, 1866, Nancy applied for a widow's pension (#110.380) for her family. Three children under the age of 16: John Franklin (b. Oct. 9, 1856, Eliza (b. Jan. 15, 1860 and Rodophus (b. Aug. 11, 1862).

-Looking for Higgins ancestor-

I have been looking for the parents of Charles W Higgins, born 31 May 1815 in Ohio (possibly Highland Co.). He married Mary M Stanforth 13 Aug 1839. (More on connection to Stanforth family at
http://www.carolyar.com/RichardStandforth.htm)
One of their sons was Benjamin Franklin Higgins, born 7 Sep 1851, who married Eudora Jane Copley 7 Sep 1874 in Walnut Grove, Knox Co., Illinois. I know about Charles' Civil War history  On Site at
n-cw1ai.htm Soldier # 15 and his death

My mother-in-law (Charles' great-granddaughter) believed he was the grandson of William Higgins, who was born 1745 (England or Virginia) and lived in Virginia for a time with his wife, Margaret Mooney. William died in 1842 in Jackson Twsp., Highland Co. OH, as did Margaret. , but the only time I have seen a father for Charles is on the Family Search site
http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/default.asp  where his father was listed as "Leeds Higgins" with a birth date of about 1789 in OH and his mother as "Mrs. Leeds Higgins" born in 1794 in Lorain, OH. But, nowhere else have I found mention of Leeds Higgins, certainly not as one of William's sons. 
Would greatly appreciate any help with Charles' parents. 
Thanks. Dee Russell  Contact Dee

Subject: James and Jereta Higgins

Hi,
I ran across your website today while filling out my family Bible. I wonder if you might have any information on James Marion Higgins born about 1859 in Crawford Il.? That might be a township but I'm not sure, and also may have been Honeycreek in that twp.
He married Jereta Simons on July 23, 1882. He would be my Great Great Grandfather. That is as far back as I could trace.
Any information you have would be much appreciated.

Thank you, Valerie Hill

 Higgins from Ireland to New York

Hi, my name is Ellen Scott and I am looking for information on my grandparents who came from Ireland. James Higgins and Nora Egan came to New York in 1911. He was about 22 and she was 15. They had four kids Thomas, Catherine, James, and Annie all born in New York. I don�t know where in Ireland they came from or even who their parents were. I hope you can help me find some kind of information.
Thank You, Ellen Scott ellens@AgricultureFCU.org

We are looking for the ancestry of David Higgins, who was born in Vermont in 1804. We believe, but have no documentary evidence, that he was one of the children of Uriah Higgins (1772 MA - after 1852 VT), and possibly born in Hartland, Windsor County Vermont.
No birth record has turned up in Hartland, so far. 

He married Mary Randall in Williston, Chittenden county Vermont in 1828. They had at least two children in Vermont and moved west to Michigan in 1836, where they had two daughters dying young and a son Edwin Higgins.

Are there any descendants of Uriah Higgins who might have information about "Uncle David?"

What a great resource this Higgins Genealogy is! Surprisingly, I haven't found anything about my Higgins forebears. I'm looking for information about the family of Michael Higgins, born 29 September 1855 possibly in Ohio and died 10 March 1932 in Moorhead MN. His parents were Michael Higgins and Annie Haney; I believe they were from Ireland. He had a sister Mary, born 16 February 1854 possibly in Pennsylvania; she died in 1936 in Fargo, ND. He had a brother Peter or Patrick born in 1864, another sister Margaret who died in July 1929 in St. Paul MN, and another brother Thomas who died in the 1920's and may have lived in Canada.

I would appreciate any information about the parents, Michael Higgins and Annie Haney. I would also like to know the places of birth for their children Mary, Michael, Peter/Patrick, Margaret and Thomas, and the dates and places of birth and death for Mary, Peter/Patrick, Margaret and Thomas. Thank you for any data for any of these people.

I am Sister Anne Higgins, a member of the Daughters of Charity, teaching at Mt. St. Mary's University in Emmitsburg, Maryland. 

I was born in West Chester, PA. My father, Vincent Higgins, now aged 91, is the last person living from his generation.

Vincent was the second youngest child of Thomas and Margaret Slavin Higgins of Morstein, PA - a village in Chester County. Their other children were: Sara, Mary, Julia, Thomas, John, and Joseph. Vincent's brother Thomas Higgins had three sons: Thomas (Penfield NY), John (Pittsfield MA) and Richard ( deceased). These men also have sons.

I know only minimal anecdotal material about the family. I hear that my grandfather came from County Cork, and my grandmother, from Letterkenny, in Donegal; they met in this country. My grandfather had at least two other brothers who came to the US:  Cornelius and Patrick Higgins, who settled in Philadelphia.  My grandfather worked for the Pennsylvania railroad. He died before I was born, around 1945 or 46. My grandmother died in 1961. 

All their children were born on their small farm in Morstein, PA. When my father applied for a passport in 1972, he had to get the information from the 1920 census, plus a notarized letter from my Aunt Sara, the oldest sister, testifying that he was born there. 

I would be glad for any information anyone might have to link this branch to other relatives, and especially to find the children and grandchildren of Cornelius and Patrick Higgins, and also to find out if there are any cousins still in Ireland.

Thanks so much
