Are you a Higgins?
Or related to or descended from a Higgins?
But, not just any Higgins…
…No, not just any Higgins.
Does your list of ancestors include
James Higgins and his wife Luraner Becraft Higgins
of Rockville, Maryland?
Well, if so, “Hello Cousin! You are in the right place!”
James Higgins fought in the Revolutionary War
as a Patriot.
Chevy Chase Chapter DAR
National Society Daughters of the American Revolution
marked James Higgins’ grave in November 2002.
There are lots and lots of descendants of James and Luraner Higgins and they are located all over the United States. Like many families who saddled up horses, hitched up wagons, packed up station wagons and headed west, the Higgins were not going to be left behind. But, there were many members of the family who never left and stayed right here in Maryland to keep the home fires burning. Somebody had to stay and leave a light on and we have always taken our duty very seriously.
So, what we’re saying is, “Enough of this wanderlust
foolishness. It’s time to come home!”
Time to meet your cousins, the ones you left
behind…sniff…and time to see from
whence you came!
We are celebrating the lives of
James and Luraner Higgins with a
Great BIG Family Reunion and
we hope you will join us.
James Higgins’ descendants were there for the ceremony.
Get out your 2016 calendar, the year that will mark the 200th Anniversary of James Higgins’ death, and pencil in the month of June when the youngsters are out of school and you can make the trip back. We want to meet every Higgins descendant we possibly can and give them family memories to tell their grandchildren. So, “Come EAST, young man!”
We can’t wait to see you!
