Re: Phebe Divert Strong Higgins

Just wanted to update -

Mrs. Phebe Strong married Elisha E. Higgins in Ohio on 9 July 1911. The marriage record can be seen at
She is the daughter of Henry Divert & Rebecca A. Fickle, being born 2 Sep 1846 in Farmer Twp., Defiance Co., OH. This is the same Phebe who was married to Milo J. Strong, as indicated by the remarried widow pension application also seen at
Elisha E. Higgins was the son of Elisha Higgins & Clarisa Vonsick.

There is also a marriage record for Phebe Divert to Lyman Hemenway on 27 Jan 1868 in Defiance Co., OH, so this would be her first marriage.

Family trees show her married to Andsell Beam next, in 1884. I haven't seen that marriage record, and her marriage record to Elisha E. Higgins states she was twice previously married - so that would be 1. Lyman Hemenway and 2. Milo J. Strong.

Phebe Higgins died in Davison Co., SD on 28 Nov 1920.
