Bedford Higgins was age 15 in 1860 census and age 7 in 1850 census. The father was Josiah Higgins and mother was Charlotte. Both were age 48 in 1860.

Mary was married to D.B. Higgins. In the 1910 census they are the only persons listed in their household, but it records that Mary had 11 children, 7 still surviving as of the date of the census. [1]


  1. United States Census, 1910;
  • 1900 census shows she was 53 and that she married age age 33. (We should reconsider whether Mary was the mother of children listed.)
