From memoirs of Emma Higgs, her daughter "When very small, I remember my Grandmother's (Anna C. Linhoss Baugh) visit to me. She wore a little white cap. Her brother, Uncle Henry Linhoss, who lived in Dayton came to visit. He took me on his lap and told me exciting experiences of the boat trip to America. They came in a sail boat and this was blown backward and forward over the ocean for six weeks. My mother (Anna D. Baugh) was only six weeks old and very ill (she was 6 months old). Sharks kept following the boat and almost upset it. The captain said, "It's because of the sick baby. If she isn't better by morning, we'll have to throw her to the sharks." She lived only by a miracle, the next morning she was much better." A similar story about a sick child about to be tossed overboard was told by the Linhosses for their ancestor Adam Linhoss who was 5 when he emigrated. "My mother came to lived with me in Charles Town and died at our home. Mr. Higgs took her body back to Broadway for burial." p. 7 " Mother lived with us til she had to go take care of her sick mother who finally died. When mother wanted to come back, I got rid of the two boarders. She returned sick. It was a tumor which turned to blood poisoning. I was pregnant, but nursed her until ten days before her death when the doctor ordered me to stay out of her room. My brother (William Baugh) stayed with us a week. On the first day of July, Mother died. (1899)" p. 17
