Surnames: Higgins, Swanson
Looking for information on the Higgins or Swanson families from Lincoln county.

Information I have to date includes:

James Higgins born Sept 1853 Canada. Married to Mary born 1860. Had many children (Mary, Angelina, James, Maggie, Lillie, Emma, Melinda, John, Percy, Francis, Agnes and Clarence (or Charles, possible James' grandson)).

Francis (Frank) T. Higgins born June 1893. Married Clara born 1896. Had many children (Francis, Earl, Pearl, Betty, Marilyn, Lila, Claire and Tom).

I am looking for any information on the above named individuals.

Also, looking for information on the Swanson family.

The only names I am aware of are Nels and possibly Henrietta Swanson. Of Swedish descent. Had children Ursona, Jim, Gurneath, Hazel, Hariette, Simon, Willard and Lenore. Most were born 1905 or later.

Any help is much appreciated.

Fran & Dolly (Swanson) Higgins were our next door neighbors in Tomahawk, Wi and I still keep in touch with their daughter. Are you still searching?

I am still searching, suspect that the daughter you are speaking of is my aunt Terry. Butch is my father and am working on putting the family tree together for them.

Lovely to meet you, Karen! I will be sure to say hello to my dad from you. I am his youngest and am living in the UK but attempting to get some info on the family. If you do have any photos to share, that would be fabulous!

KRISTA - Since connecting with you, my memories have certainly gone back to my Prospect Ave days here in Tomahawk. Colleen was two years older than me, but we had alot of fun times together. Growing up next to the Wisconsin River gave us lots of swimming time. So many stories. Do you have any photos of Colleen? Terri has said she has movie videos and I sure would love to see them. How is Butch. He was always that "little kid" that kept bothering us. Our entire neighborhood was full of boys his age, they would have stories. When Colleen was taken from us, part of me went with her. That morning when Dolly & Fran came running over to our house with the tragic news will forever be with me. Such sorrow! Dolly & my mom were also the best of friends, living so close. Where are your dad & Vernon now? Do they ever get back here to Tomahawk?
