Bio and Links
I have been collecting Higley Family History for 18 years. Today I have over 39,000 Plus direct descendants (not including the spouses) of Captain John Higley, Simsbury, Connecticut. This includes 8100 Higley's that was born with the HIGLEY name. With more than 71,500 names in my files. I enjoy finding lost relatives and writing biographies about family. I collect individual and tombstone pictures, always looking for more pictures. Do you have photos to share? Please one photo per relative. I have 8600 photos to share, 4228 are individual pictures of relatives. 4372 photos are tombstone markers. I also have over 4845 pages of information available to share with family that covers 12,676 families, 312,375 text records and 11,100 surnames. So many descendants that I needed to break it down in 26 books. Are you related? If I have any errors in my postings let me know. This is a great web-site. Please send me photos...or post photos of my Higley relatives. Keep the Higley legacy going. Thanks. I have many non related people posted on Find-a-grave and would be happy to transfer these. Feel free to use my photos for family.

RE: David King
My GGGreat Grandfather is Richard King born on 30 May 1820 in Belmont, Ohio, USA. He died on 08 Feb 1898 in Newcomerstown, Tuscarawas, Ohio. I have all the information I want on Richard including a family bible. But what I can't find out (my brick wall) is the connection to his parents or any siblings. The only mention of his parents were in a history book on Richard from Tuscarawas county: David and Rachael (Phelps) King. There are many David King's in this area and time frame, but I cannot find a proved connection to my David King. Just wondering if this was it. Thanks

Pardee Cemetery
Leroy could you delete your additions to Pardee Cemetery as mine have more into. I have been working on local history and cemeteries since 1976. I have taken new photos of cemetery I don't know how to submit to Find a Grave. I have done a lot of local genealogies and it is still growing since my husband passed he is at Pardee. My folks are failing at 90 and 91. Best to you. Marcelline.

Do you have in your possession a copy of the Blue Grass Mecca, published 1955. It has information on the Higley's and the Harts if you are interested, I will share.

Hiram Higley
I cam across his name in some clippings that I was given. Would like to gather more information and figure how he fits in the tree.
My grandmother was a Frost, father was Harry, mother Florence (Herrick). Harry was a son of Madison, the son of Semira Frost (Forward), the daughter of Abigail Higley. So where does Hiram fit?

Hi, Leroy, it appears as though we are related via Abigail Higley. I am a descendant of her son, Chauncey Forward and his daughter, Lucy.
