RE: Higgins in Riverdale Cemetery
I imagine he got it from the obit and/or the death cert. - you might ask him. The birth date and place match what you have, and folks often altered their names along the way. Not to mention that info in death certs and obits was sometimes the "best guess" of the informant.

When my mother-in-law died, we gave her name as she had always given it, Yvonne Antoinette. Later found out that her birth cert read Antoinette Yvonne, which actually matched what she'd always said - that she was named after her aunt. Her mother was, as far as anyone knew, Ida M., but, we recently learned, her birth cert, baptismal record and first marriage cert all give her name as Mary Ann. Go figure.

Anyway, contact him or don't - just thought I'd let you know. If you'll recall, I was the one who helped you connect the dots with your family back in October.

Higgins in Riverdale Cemetery
Hi Sherry! Did you see that Find A Grave member Adam added Carrie Higgins husband, Eliott "Eli" S. Higgins to Riverdale Cemetery. Apparently he has both the obit and death cert for Eli. Don't know how you two are related, but I guess you must be! :-) He was looking for a photo, but there is no gravestone for Eli (or for their son Eli) so far as I can tell.

Hi Sherry,
I added Wilfred from info I found at so hope I got it right. Welcome to Now that you're a member I can transfer management of their pages to you and then you can edit them yourself if you would like. I added Gertrude from her obit I came across. If you don't have photos I can get them for you because my dad is buried there too and it's not that big of a cemetery so I probably can find it fairly easily. I had started taking photos here to post because there were so few memorials on the site for this cemetery but never finished because of other issues. Then I added some from obits hoping to get the photos sooner or later. If you find any other relatives I added I will gladly transfer them to you.

RE: Minot & Higgins Family
I've sent you an email at the address listed on your page, so that we can get into more depth on this. :-)
