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.

I'm not sure why there's a different spelling on the marker.

RE: lillie's marker
Leroy, It is not a good picture but that is what was sent to me. I truly appreciate the lady for taking her time to go out and take the picture for me and then email it to me. When I go to visit there again I will take another one and post it. At the time she was nice enough to take the picture it was freezing cold outside so it was not an easy request to honor. I bought the headstone while on vacation and all I've seen of it is the picture. I plan to go in person the next time I fly up that way to see family. Her headstone was the 4th Higley headstone we purchased for my ancestors who were buried without a memorial headstone.

I was looking at picture of Miles Smith and spouse graves. The Ye Old Watrous Cemetery is small, confined, and surrounded by white fencing, but I see open woodland behind.
It is possible these two are buried at the Watrous Family Burial Ground a few miles south of Watrous Ye Old Cemetery.
I guess I can drive out there and verify.
I know location of both.

I believe you're supposed to ask if I would, not tell me to transfer him, just because you want him.

RE: tombstone pic
You're welcome! There were two other stones nearby with the same last name so I took pictures of them and created memorials for them.

Thanks for the transfer of Fred Smith.
Sorry I must have hit a wrong key and didn't get finished with my message.
