Bio and Links
I have been collecting Higley Family History for 19 years. Today I have over 39,000 Plus direct descendants (not including the spouses) of Captain John Higley, Simsbury, Connecticut. This includes 8050 Higley's that was born with the HIGLEY name. I have 71,000 names of relatives 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 9200 photos to share, 4480 are individual pictures of relatives. 4400 photos are tombstone markers. I also have over 5000 pages of information available to share with family that covers 12,676 families, 313,000 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.

Sand Ridge Cemetery
I see that you have Phelps C. Higley listed as being buried in the Sand Ridge Cemetery in or near Lafayette, Indiana. I was wondering if he had a stone there. Does the genealogical society in Lafayette have a list of the people buried in this cemetery?

I was wondering if the body of the wife of Phelps C. Higley is also buried in this cemetery. She died in Washington in 1920 and according to funeral records there her body was to be shipped back to Lafayette.

Hello Can you please removed the photo of the death that is wrong. I have found the obituary of Charles Higley of the newspaper of The Atchison Champion of Atchison, Kansas listed that he death, the obituary was posted in the Weekly newspaper and it is dated for publication 24 Feb 1905. So please remove the photo that would give the wrong impression to the researchers of genealogy of this family. I will be happy to send you the obituary.

re: marker for Elizabeth
The plot is per Provo City Cemetery records. There are many buried there who don't have headstones or a marker because after the cost of the burial, the families could afford one. I have several ancestors without one. What I did, was done for me by another contributor, for my husband grandparents and family. I feel it's a lot better and more precise than just a picture of the grass in the general area.

Hello Leroy,
I am sorry to say that you have the wrong death dates on the headstones of Charles Higley and his wife Susan E. the legal listing is on Civil War Penison files listing the correct records of death.
