Categories: Higdon Name Study.



I'm a natural born U.S. citizen. My father is John Charles Higdon, Sr. and my mother is Linda Marie (Baumgart) Higdon. I have one younger brother, John Charles Higdon, Jr. I was born in the state of Maryland. After living in Maryland for about 7 years, my family moved to Kentucky where we lived for approximately another 7 years. After which, we moved to the state of Alabama when my father got a job transfer. While there, I met and married my husband, Steven Leon Segers. Together, we have one daughter.

My family's genealogical roots appear to be primarily: English, German, and Scotch-Irish. I'm also attempting to trace my husband's lineage and, thus far, his genealogical roots appear to be: English, Irish, and possibly Scandinavian.

My aunt, Billye Higdon, used to be our family's amateur genealogist. She passed away a few years ago and I have inherited both her research and position. I hope to honor her memory by continuing where she left off and doing my best to fill in the blanks.

Hi Laurie,

My maiden last name is Mallernee. Mallonee is a variation, or should I say Mallernee is the variation? The first known Mallonee, I'm aware of, lived in Baltimore, MD and his name was John Mallonee, born 7 January 1728 – death 2 August 1783. There are a lot of theories about the Mallernee line. I have taken an autosomal test from FTDNA. My name is listed as Ellen Rice. I am also processing my records on GEDcom. I might share records here but am not familiar with this site yet. Thanks, Ellen

Hi! Thanks for your post on my profile page. Witten-57 has [Category: Tazewell County, Virginia]] (but with two brackets at the front), so that one's done. Just add the same to the other two profiles you want to include in the category.

There are some church categories I think, but I don't know the proper structure for them. Please post a question from one of the profiles to G2G asking what would be the correct name and parent category for a category to include members of the Pisgah Methodist Church (you said United Methodist, which it may be today, but that's relatively recent... 1960s, I think).

Tag your question with categorization religions churches (you could also tag it Witten & Virginia)

Hi Laurie

Here is the Category for Prisoner of war

[[:Category: Prisoners of War, United States of America, World War II

When you post it on a profile, such as Higdon, then remove the above colon at the beginning and add a second set of ]] at the end of World WarII, please..

If you need the Military and War badge for World War II, either contact Paula J or myself.. (As I can always contact Paula)
