From a book about the Higby's, the following information concerning my great great grandfather, Samuel Cooper Higby born July 1821 Balto., married Mary Snyder born Balto. Dec. 1820, died Dec. 1872. He was the 7th generation, names as follows 6. Nvah Higby, 5th Noah Higby, 4th Issac, 3rd Edward, 2nd John, 1st Edward. Only living child of Samuel Cooper Higby and Mary Snyder was Joseph Henry Higby, born Nov. 19 1848 in Balto. Married first sister Ella Thomas, my great grandmother, child Edith Virginia Higby, after death of first wife, married her sister Martha, one child lived to adulthood, Kenneth Higby. Sound familiar to anyone. ?? I have much more history on Higbys going to 749 in this book.
