Notes


Bluefield Daily Telegraph, 03/1916
Mary Elizabeth Allen Higginbotham (1829-1916) WV
Mrs. Mary Higginbotham, who lived for many years on the site of Bluefield, when what is now a city, was the Higginbotham Farm, occurred Sunday night at the farm of her daughter, Mrs. Millard Dills at Bluff City, Va. following an illness of a week from pneumonia. She lived for almost a century, being 90 years old at the time of her death. "Aunt Mary" Higginbotham, as she was familiarly known throughout this section, was the daughter of Madison Allen ,an esteemed citizen of the Bland Co., the farm having joined the Giles Co. line. There Mrs. Higginbotham was born and reared, and after her marriage came to this section. The old
Higginbotham home, until a few years ago, stood on a hill which is now the site of the Matz Hotel, Flat Top Bank, Commercial Hotel and the block of buildings between Princeton Avenue and Raleigh St. on one side and Stewart and Federal Streets on the other. Her husband, John B. Higginbotham, preceded her to the grave some 20 years ago. Mary Allen Higginbotham is the Mother of Bane S. Higginbotham, J.C. (Bud) Higginbotham , and J.C. (Jeff) Higginbotham and Mrs. Millard Dills (Mariah Elizabeth Higginbotham). Bane S. Higginbotham and Mrs. Millard Dills are the only surviving members of the family. J.C. died in this city some years ago, while in the past 5 years, Jeff met his death in the West by being thrown from a horse. Bane S. Higginbotham for years lived in this city , but within the past few years has been living at DeLand, Florida, although he spends the summers at his summer home at the Iron Litha Springs, at Tip Top. During the last summer Mr. Higginbotham had his Mother with his family at the springs. Mrs. Higginbotham made her home with her daughter, Mrs. M. Dills for the past few years. Mrs. Mary (Allen) Higginbotham was a great Methodist and was probably the oldest member of Bland Street Methodist Church. she was a faithful member of that congregation, and was always loyal to her conviction in every sphere and walk of life... The remains will be brought to Bluefield this afternoon on train # 1, and the funeral will be held at Bland St. Church at 2:30 o'clock, conducted by Rev. E.E. Wiley, the Pastor. Internment will be at the old Higginbotham Cemetery in South Bluefield.
