Hi, my name is sheila and my grandma is a higginbotham. Marla Higginbotham daughter of Clarence Higginbotham son of William Douglas Higginbotham. How are you in the family tree? who is your dad? Also wondered if you had any pictures of Capt. John from the old Higginbotham Cemetery in Amherst?

James Lewis Higgenbotham
James Lewis Higgenbotham was not the son of Ella Higgenbotham. If you read his obituary, it shows this.

Ella did not have any children. See her obituary to prove that.

William Caleb Higginbotham
William Caleb would be my maternal Great Grandfather. My Grandmother was Sada Mae (Higginbotham) Barnette. My Mother was Naomi Barnette Moore. Sada was the daughter of William Caleb and Leuisia landers Higginbotham. She was born Feb 23 1894 and died jan 4 1991. She is buried at Montgomery Memorial Cemetery, London WV. Could you add her as a daughter of William Caleb and Leiusia Higginbotham on this website. Would it also be possible to obtain a photo of William Caleb's burial site. Would it also be possible to visit this cemetery?

Thanks in advance

RE: John & Tirzah London
Thanks but I finally woke up to the fact that I could copy them into my "virtual cemetery" so that is what I did. Also, visited your website and found some valuable information that will help me to finally connect some dots. I am so grateful to you for doing all this research - and such good work. I may contact you at a latter time if I get stuck again. Now I want to get in the car and drive out there to look around but can't at this time. The entire London family from here will be forever grateful to you for these leads. I love doing this but haven't had a lot of time.

The Higginbotham land view was so beautiful.

John & Tirzah London
Thank you so much for posting this memorial. John London would have been my great-great-great-great grandfather. We have little information on the London family except for names and spouse's names. It is so great to see this. I feel like I can move forward from here because I am at a dead end trying to work from the other end of the line.

If there is any you could forward me a picture of this gravestone I would love to have it for our family burial history. I know my dad, John's great-great-great grandfather will love it when I show him this. He is 84 now. Thanks again - this photo has made my whole year!

William, thank you for all your hard work. I descend from Nancy Bauer Higginbotham Mitchell's sister, Maude Ione. I know that I met some of the Higginbotham's when I was young, and have pictures of Aunt Nancy and Leslie Higginbotham, and two of their children, Eva and Adrian.

Again, thank you.
