Benton County, Arkansas 1860 lookup
Try as I might, I have not been able to find this man on the Arkansas 1860 Benton County Census. He is:
Bryant Higgins, b 1820, farmer, m Irena, b 1826, children are Shadrac, b 1844, Martha Susan, b 1845, Lee, b 1847, Butler, b 1848, Juda, b 1849, Mary, b 1853, Frances, b 1854, Nannie, b 1852, Sarah Caroline, b 1857, Samuel, b 1858.
There is a possibility that they moved to Dade or Henry County, Missouri but I couldn't find them there either. I can't find any of them in the index at Ancestry. Can anybody help? TIA.

Well, don't know if you have already done this, but it looks like there may be some mixing going on. In the 1850 census of Ashe Co. North Carolina there is a listing with Bryant and the listed kids, but he is married to a Judy. The ages are correct and the names of the kids are correct but no Irena. In 1870 & 80 census, a Bryant married to Irena is listed with kids, but not the ones listed. The ages of the parents are correct. When doing look ups on the kids alone, they all come back to the 1850 census. As far as Benton AR, no matches for anyone. Lots of matches for Higgins in MO but no Bryants or Irenas.
