Regarding one Proctor Higgins

From New Hampshire born around 1815 (guessing from Wisconsin Census of 1860) Married one Juliette Orinda Willis of New York seems they may have been married in NY. Sired Franklin Augustus Higgins April 9th, 1848 in Waukesha Co, Wisc.

Proctor would be my Great-Great Grandfather. For some reason I am having a much harder time tracing my Father's lineage.

HIGGINS, Lulu Blanche (Galbreath) -
(4 April 1888 - 22 Dec 1942)

Lulu Blanche Galbreath was born April 4, 1888, in Grant county, Ind. She moved with her parents to Wisconsin when she was a small girl and had lived
since in different parts of the state.
She was married to Isaac Higgins Dec. 24, 1908. They lived on a farm near Sabin, Wis., for some time afterward, owning and operating different farms and businesses until they settled, about 23 years ago, on the farm in the town of York
(Clark Co), which still
is the family home.

She is survived by her husband and her two children, Floyd of Baltimore, Md., and Geraldine, now Mrs. Burke Stannard, Toronto, Canada two grandsons, Larry and
Scott Higgins, sons of Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Higgins and also a sister, Mrs. Christ Feutz, town of Washburn and a brother, Roscoe Galbreath of Canada.

Mrs. Higgins passed away at her home, surrounded by her loved ones, Dec. 22, 1942, after a severe illness of about a month.

The departed was educated in the schools of Clark county. She taught in the rural districts for four years before her marriage. She also taught for many years after she became a wife and mother, being most successful in this profession. She was one of Clark County's oldest teachers. Mrs. Higgins also was active in civic and social clubs in her home community. She
had been a member of the Christian church since she was sixteen years of age, always a worker in any church which was close at hand whether or not it happened to be her own denomination.

One of the great pleasures in her life was the fact that she was permitted to live close to her beloved sister, Mrs. Christ Feutz. She and a brother now are the only survivors of the Robert Galbreath family.

Present for the rites from distant places were: Lant Higgins, eldest brother of Isaac Higgins, Janesville Mr. and Mrs. Rollie Robins, Sabin, Wis. and Mr. and
Mrs. Floyd Wanless, Hillsboro, the women being Mr. Higgins' sisters.

The daughter had been at home assisting in the care of her mother. Floyd also had been here to visit his mother and to do what he could for her.

Funeral services were held at the community church at Granton at two p.m. Saturday, the Rev. O. Asp of Neillsville officiating. Burial was made in the Windfall cemetery.

-Allen Higgins-

         Allen Higgins portrait Click for large version 

For more than a half century Allen Higgins, who died in April 1917, had made his home within the borders of Door County and for an equally long period he and his wife had traveled life�s journey together. His first visit to the county was made in 1856, when he made a trip to Washington Island. Moreover, Wisconsin claims him as a native son, for his birth occurred at Bristol, Racine County, on the 20th of May 1839, his parents being William R. and Cynthia D. (Case) Higgins, who were natives of Connecticut and New York respectively. The former the son of Fitch A. Higgins, a veteran of the war of 1812, while the latter was the daughter of Grove Case, who became a resident of Illinois in early pioneer times. The Higgins family was founded in Wisconsin by Fitch A. Higgins, who in the early "30"s took up his abode in Racine County, near Kenosha, where he followed the occupation of farming. It was in that county that William R. Higgins and Cynthia D. Case were married.
William R. Higgins was the first white man to settle in Bristol Township, Racine County, now Kenosha County, where he took up government land. During the period of Allen Higgins' boyhood Indians were far more numerous than the white settlers in that section of the state and it seemed that the work of development and progress had scarcely been begun, but the family took an active part of promoting the work of civilization in that district.
No event of special importance occurred to vary the routine of life for Allen Higgins during the period of his boyhood and youth but in August 1862, when he was about 23 years of age, he responded to his country's call for troops and joined the Union army as a member of Company H, Thirty-Third regiment of Wisconsin infantry. He was with his company in all the battles and campaigns in which it participated and proved his loyalty on many a hotly contested field. Promotion came to him from time to time. He was first made Sergeant, then Orderly Sergeant and in September 1864, was made Sergeant Major of his regiment. He took part in engagements in Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri and Alabama and after participating in twenty-two battles, sieges and skirmishes he was mustered out at Vicksburg in August 1865, and was honorably discharged at Madison the following month. [More Civil War ONSITE]

It was on the 3rd of October 1865, that Allen Higgins was united in marriage to Miss Rosanna M. Farnsworth, who was born in Washington, New Hampshire, September 5, 1844 and was brought to Wisconsin in 1851, when her parents settled in Kenosha County. The young couple, together with William R. Higgins, removed from Kenosha County to Bailey�s Harbor, where father and son built a pier and steamboat dock and became agents for the Goodrich Transportation Company. They got out wood, ties and lumber and developed a good business. Allen Higgins also cleared a farm. The pier, which was called Higgins Pier, was destroyed by a storm in 1880. After the father's death, which occurred in the early 70�s, Allen Higgins had conducted the business alone. From time to time he was called upon for public service and held various town offices and was chairman of the town board when appointed to the office of the Clerk of the Court by Judge Meyers of the 10th Judicial District. He then removed with his family to Sturgeon Bay and acted in that capacity for thirty-one years, beginning on the 1st of October 1881. He was elected at each election following his first appointment and made a most splendid record in office. No higher testimonial of capability and faithful service could be given than the fact that he was retained in the position thirty-one years. In 1912, however, he declined to become a candidate for reelection, for he had passed the allotted age of man three score years and ten (70) and he felt the duties should be assumed by one of younger years. He was by then the oldest clerk of the court in Wisconsin in both point of age and in years of continuous service. Moreover he enjoyed the distinction of being the best informed clerk in the state on naturalization laws. He became known as the "father of the courthouse" and the younger generation that came into active service there was continually seeking his advice. He was held in the highest esteem, being honored and respected for his personal worth as well as his marked official ability. Upon his retirement those that were his associates in the courthouse manifested their high appreciation of his worth by tendering him a banquet, at which forty-three guests were present, including members of the County board. County Officers, including members of the Door County bar, representatives of the press and prominent citizens.
Mr. And Mrs. Higgins became the parents of a son and daughter: Dr Allen F. Higgins, now residing in Tampa, Florida, with whom they occasionally spend the winters: and Mrs. Arthur T. Harris of Sturgeon Bay. This worthy couple celebrated their golden wedding on the 2nd of October 1915, after enjoying fifty years of happiness and health together. They had met together the hardships and privations of pioneer life. For this was a frontier district when in 1865 they removed to Door County. Mr. Higgins had previously visited the county in 1856, when he went to Washington Island to get a stock of evergreens for a nursery. He returned about a decade and thereafter made his home here until his death, April 2nd, 1917. He was held in the highest esteem and the circle of his friends was almost coextensive with the circle of his acquaintances. The official career of few residents of Door County perhaps has extended over so long a period and none has been more faultless in honor, fearless in conduct and stainless in reputation. In his passing Door County has lost not only a worthy pioneer, but a man who was honored and respected by all who knew him.

The Higgins family to which Mrs. Robinson belongs comes from patriotic New England stock. Her great-grandfather, Timothy Higgins, was a soldier in the war of the Revolution, and he died in Wolcott, Conn., July 12, 1829, in the seventy-fifth year of his age. His wife, Hannah, died in the same town March 5, 1833, in the seventy-sixth year of her age.

Fitch A. Higgins, son of Timothy and Hannah, was born at Milford, Conn., July II, 1793. He came to Kenosha county with the early pioneers, and took up government land in Pleasant Prairie township, where he built a log house and reared his family. On March 8, 1815, in Middlebury, Conn. He married Amanda Royce, who was born in Wallingford, Conn., May 31, 1793, and who died at Southport, Wis., May 31, 1840. To this union were born children as follows: Emiline Tuttle, William Royce, Mary Angeline Taylor, Harriet Eliza Richards and Hannah Amanda Foster. Mr. Higgins married
(second) Lucretia Sibley, who died June 11, 1886, aged seventy-four years, six months and twenty-six days. Two children were born of this marriage, Charles Timothy and Frederick Fillmore. Fitch A. Higgins was a drummer boy in the war of 1812. He died in Pleasant Prairie March 1, 1882, aged eighty-eight years.

William Royce Higgins, son of Fitch A. and father of Mrs. Robinson, was born at Wolcott, Conn., May 14, 1817, and he died at Bailey's Harbor, Door Co., Wis., April 1, 1874, aged fifty-seven years. His wife, Cynthia Dorcas Case, was born at Westfield, Chautauqua Co., N. Y., Jan. 23, 1817, one of eight children—three daughters and five sons. Her parents moved from the East to Kankakee, Ill., where they died, and of their children, but one, Spencer Case, of Channel Lake, Ill., survives. William R. Higgins and his wife were pioneers in Wisconsin, where they were farming people. Mrs. Higgins died at Sturgeon Bay, Wis., Feb. 14, 1888. She bore her husband twelve children, as follows: Fitch Allan

- DWIGHT ROBINSON -
With the history of agricultural development in Kenosha county, the name of Dwight Robinson was closely associated and when he passed away his death was the occasion of deep regret because of the place which he had made for himself in public regard. He dated his arrival in Wisconsin from April, 1856, being at that time a young man of twenty-four years. He was born in Tolland county, Connecticut, July 26, 1832, his parents being Gurdon and Lucy (Edson) Robinson. The father was born in Connecticut, July 21, 1788, and was a son of Sabin and Dorcas Robinson. He served as a soldier in the War of 1812 and was actively engaged at New London, Connecticut. He devoted his life to farming and passed away April 3, 1867, when seventy-nine years of age. His wife, a native of Stafford, Tolland county, Connecticut, was a daughter of Levi and Molly Edson, and her death occurred in her native town, April 10, 1867, when she was seventy-five years of ago. Mr. and Mrs.
Robinson had a family of eleven children: Sally, born March 27, 1813, was married and had a daughter and one son; Roxana, born March 11, 1815, married and had one son and one daughter; Lucy C. was born May 30, 1816; Daniel E. was born November 29, 1817; Elijah was born February 8, 1819; Giles was born April 15, 1821; the next child, born June 8, 1823, died unnamed; Maria, born August 14, 1825, was married and had three sons; Dwight, born May 3, 1828, died in early childhood; Angeline, born November 18, 1830, became the wife of William G. Parker and had one son, and Dwight, the second of the name, was born July 26, 1832, was married and had four sons and two daughters.
At the place of his nativity, Dwight Robinson spent the days of his boyhood and youth, and in 1856 he first visited Wisconsin to look after the interests of his brother, Elijah Robinson, who had invested in land in Kenosha county. In 1860 he was married in this county, after which he returned to Connecticut, where he remained until the death of his parents. At that time he once more came to Wisconsin and purchased land from John Oliver, continuing its development and cultivation until his death. He also purchased an adjoining tract of fifteen acres and another tract of twenty acres, while his wife became owner of eleven acres. He was actively and successfully engaged in general agricultural pursuits for many years, and the careful management of his business affairs brought him substantial success.
On the 28th of October, 1860, occurred the marriage of Dwight Robinson and Miss Frances Sarah Higgins, a representative of an old New England family. Her great-grandfather, Timothy Higgins, was a soldier of the Revolutionary war and died in Wolcott, Connecticut, July 12, 1829, at the age of seventy-five years, while his wife, Hannah, passed away in Wolcott, March 5, 1833, in her seventy-sixth year. Their son, Fitch A. Higgins, was born at Milford, Connecticut, July 11, 1793, and became one of the first settlers of Kenosha county, securing a tract of government land in Pleasant Prairie township, whereon he built a log cabin and reared his family. On the 8th of March, 1815, in Middlebury, Connecticut, he wedded Amanda Royce, who was born in Wallingford, Connecticut, May 31, 1793, and died at Southport, Wisconsin, May 31, 1840. Their children were Emeline Tuttle, William Royce, Mary Angeline Taylor, Harriet Eliza Richards and Hannah Amanda Foster. For his second wife, Mr. Higgins chose Lucretia Sibley, who died July 11, 1886, at the age of seventy-four years, six months and twenty-six days. They had two children, Charles Timothy and Frederick Filmore. The father, Fitch A. Higgins, had served as a drummer boy in the War of 1812. He died in Pleasant Prairie, March 1, 1882, at the age of eighty-eight years.

William Royce Higgins, the father of Mrs. Robinson, was born in Wolcott, Connecticut, May 14, 1817, and died at Bailey’s Harbor, in Door county, Wisconsin, April 1, 1874, at the age of fifty-seven years. He married Cynthia Dorcas Case, who was born at Westfield, New York, January 23, 1847, and was one of a family of eight children—three daughters and five sons. The Case family trace their lineage down from the Earl of Angus, third son of a Scottish nobleman, who lived in England in 1400. The American progenitor was John Case, who wedded Sarah Spencer. One of this family, Alma Case, became the wife of George Randall, who during the Revolutionary war, was captured while fighting with General Burgoyne. The parents of Mrs. William R. Higgins, on leaving the east, removed to Kankakee, Illinois. Mr. and Mrs. William R. Higgins became pioneers of Wisconsin and he carried on farming to provide for the family. Mrs. Higgins died at Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, February 14, 1888. She was the mother of twelve children: Fitch Allan; William R., who died in infancy; Sarah Frances, now Mrs. Robinson; Mrs. Mary Alana Mowery; Timothy; Mrs. Laura Amanda Ross; Mrs. Florence Amelia Overholt; Frank William; George Valentine; Mrs. Dora Capitola Kalamback; Clara Viola; and Frederick.
Mr. and Mrs. Dwight Robinson became the parents of six children: Florence Emogene, the wife of Thomas F. Blanklcy, a resident of Litchfield, Illinois, by whom she has seven children, Charlie, Fred, Mrs. Mary Stuttle, Mrs. Elsie Elvidge, Thomas, Stella and Floren; George W., who married Stella Merville and has two children, Howard and Mary; Giles, who married Agnes Anderson and has three children; Bert J., who married Laure H. Kulckig; Willard E., who married Mabel Learned and has three children, Marjorie, Verna and Doris; and Mina E., who is the wife of Edgar Aber and has two children, Margaret Elizabeth and Ellen Ruth.
Mr. Robinson passed away May 5, 1888, and although many years have since come and gone he is yet remembered by his neighbors and friends. He had long been a resident of the county, had taken an active part in its development and had contributed to its progress along agricultural lines. He was always upright and honorable in his dealings with his fellow men, and his many sterling traits had established him firmly in public regard.

THE HIGGINS HOMESTEAD 
(The Jochem Farm
by Dan Reese
Added 06 February 2002  

Samuel Higgins claimed the first homestead in Cedar Township in Buffalo County (Wisconsin). Higgins was born in Maine on March 30, 1811. His father, William Higgins, served in the War of 1812. In 1837 Samuel set out to see the country, spending time in several states and finally settling in Grant County, Wisconsin. His first wife Matilda gave him nine children. His second wife was Priscilla Ellen Wamsley Ewer. They were married in Wisconsin on November 26, 1865. Mrs. Ewer had five children from her first marriage, and Samuel and Priscilla had two offspring, but one of them died. The Higgins family arrived in Buffalo County on November 10, 1872. Higgins, a carpenter, built a small shanty near Gibbon to house his family while he sought out a claim. He found his farm on the East Half of the Southeast Quarter of Section 22, in Cedar Township, built the usual dugout in the side of the hill, and took up residence. Occasionally Indians passed through begging for food and feed for their horses. One night some difficult Indians tried to break into his dugout, but Higgins succeeded in driving them off. Shortly after the Higginses arrived, John Davis and his wife settled in Section 2, also making a dugout in which to spend the winter. 
The building of a place to live was not easy in those first years in Cedar Township. Even for a dugout, the materials used were either those at hand or had to be transported some distance, usually from Gibbon some twenty miles away. As described by Harry Crawford, in Where Buffalo Roamed, p. 62

History of Vernon County, Wisconsin. Illustrated, Springfield, Ill., Union Publishing Company, 1884; p 520; 

Jacob Higgins was one of the earlier settlers of Franklin town, and is well remembered by the pioneers. He was born near Ithica, N. Y., Oct. 2, 1802, and was there reared, receiving a good education. He taught school in New York in early life, and then went to Michigan, where he opened a store and was engaged in mercantile pursuits. On Nov. 10, 1842, he there married Phebe Wisel, and seven years later came to Vernon (then known as Bad Ax) county, Wis., arriving May 10, 1849. He located at Liberty Pole, and immediately bought a quarter section of land on sections 25 and 26, town 12 north range 5 west. He continued in mercantile pursuits, was also postmaster, and continued in that office until his death. He held various town offices. In March, 1857, he removed his family on his farm one mile west of Liberty Pole, where he permanently settled, and was a prominent and well respected citizen up to his death, which occurred Sept. 4, 1858. Mrs. Higgins was born at Parma, Cattaraugas Co., N. Y., and removed to Indiana with her parents. Mr. and Mrs. Higgins have two living children--Sidney, who was born in Steuben County, Ind., Sept 2, 1843, has always lived on the old homestead, married Lucy A., daughter of Jesse Davis, and early settler of this town. They have four children. Judson, the second son, was born in St. Joseph Co., Mich., Aug 11, 1845, married Alice Robson, and has four children. Zuleima, the only daughter, was born in White Pigeon, Mich., Dec. 28, 1847, and died on the old homestead, Feb. 16, 1868.
