Jamie,if you go onto www.familysearch.org and then into United States records/Alabama they have many,many records for Higdon/Higden.Everything from births,marriages to Civil War records etc.So at least the Alabama end you can find quite a bit of info such as the following;

Marriage:
groom:Thomas Bird
bride:Polly Higdan
married:5 August 1838
place:Marshall,Alabama

I checked Irish records and could not locate info on them.I also looked at Griffiths Valuation and the censuses (which would be further forward than the time space you are looking for)just to see if I could find anyone with that name to give an area and I only found 1 person in all the records;a Robert Higden in 1901 born co Down but no others with that name.Go to familysearch site as you may be able to work backward from Alabama records.Hope this helps,Kim
