Higgins Family in Putnam County, Mo
Posted by: Paul Wylde (ID *****8626) Date: October 02, 2005 at 20:10:31

I am looking for information on the Higgins family in Putnam County, Mo, and Sullivan County, Mo. between 1850 and 1910. John W. Higgins (b. 1816) was married to Mariah Higgins (b. 1819 in Ohio) in Wells County, Indiana, then moved to Sullivan County, Mo. They had children:

Elizabeth (Hornbaker)
Sarah (Adams)
Mary (Wylde)

Mariah divorced John W. in the 1860's when they lived in the tavern he owned. She took her children to Putnam County, Missouri.

John W. was, I believe, son of John Higgins, born 1775 in Maryland. John the elder died in Sullivan County, Missouri.
