Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 8, 1909
Marathon County
Wisconsin, USA
Death: Oct. 9, 1987
Sacramento County
California, USA

Son of Ulysses Grant Higby & Bertha Mae (Cordle) Higby. Being their 4th child and 3rd son.

He was born in Hall, Marathon, Wisconsin, which I am guessing no longer is there. Not on list on this site.

He moved to California in about 1930.

About 1933 he was united in marriage with Anona Pearl "Anna" Horner. To this union one known son was born.

1940 census they are in Silveyville, Solano, California, and he is working as an Machanic.

I have found no record of him fighting in WWII.

Sometime after 1940 they relocated to Dixon, Solano, California. Were they remained until his wife passed in 1976.

On 19 May 1986 he married Jessie Kay Christiansen in Reno, Clark, Nevada.

17 months later he passed away, and she place him with the mother of his child/children who'd been his wife for over 40 years.
My 3rd cousin 1x removed.
