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.
Have you taken a DNA test for genealogy? If so, login to add it. If not, see our friends at MyHeritage DNA.

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

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)
