David Matthew Higgins burial site

Noticed your post on Find a Grave indicating that David Mathew/Matthew Higgins is also buried in the Medlan Chapel Cemetery. This is incorrect. His first wife (Margaret Lavinia Clement Higgins) is buried there as well as his father (Andrew J. Higgins) and some other family members too.

However, he remarried and moved to the Reed, Oklahoma area where he was living when he passed away and according to his obituary and info from the Primitive Baptist Church, he was buried near there. So far I have not located the exact site but I'm still working on it.

Since there was a court battle of his property between his children (by 1st wife)and his 2nd wife, I believe that no one erected a tombstone.

Church believed he was in the Tea Cross Cem near there, but no record has been found. Obit says he died in Reed and is buried in that place.

Thought you might like to know. CK Welch

I have place the headstone of Albert Sidney on your memorial. You might want to connect with the people who have linked his parents to mine. I will delete mine as soon as all the changes have been made. I have linked his wife to your memorial.

RE: Higgins Cemetery
I tried to visit Higgins, tromping around thorny woods for a good while, but I didn't find anything. It looks like the cemetery was surveyed in 1980, so either it's too far overgrown or the coordinates weren't accurate - maybe both. If you can dig up some more info on it, I'm happy to go hunting for it again.

RE: Higgins Cemetery
I've never been there, but next time I drive home to see my parents, I'll go looking for it.
