Birth: Aug. 11, 1831, England
Death: Apr. 22, 1893
Santaquin
Utah County
Utah, USA

George Bouncer Higginson was born 11 August 1831 in Caynton House, Beckbury, Shropshire, England and died 22 April 1893 at Santaquin, Utah County, Utah - plot 0000C-0045-#1ET

He had several wives. There were three children by Maria Katharine Olsen (our ancestor); Eight children by Elizabeth Gardner and at least one by Mary Hazelwood.

George B. Higginson was a missionary companion of Elder Parley P. Pratt. The story is told in our family that Elder Higginson gave Elder Parley B. Pratt his last drink of water. We know from a history of Elder Pratt that after his murder, he was buried by Elder Higginson.

I am sure there is much more that could be said and I would appreciate and welcome any input from descendants that may have stories to share.
