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.

RE: tombstone pic
Hi Leroy, what cemetery would these people be in? Maybe I can help a bit more?

RE: tombstone pic
Hi, I'm very confused..... I have added almost 1500 memorials so not sure who you are referring too. Could you use the EDIT tab on the mentioned memorial so I can have a direct link to it or could you possibly add her memorial # so I can look her up?

I did a general search for Betty Popp in the area I live as that is where I do most of my Find A Grave volunteer work and there are none. So that confused me a bit more.

Maybe this message you wrote should go to someone else?

Regards, FA

Greetings, Leroy -

You have this memorial in the wrong cemetery. It should be in St. Pauls Lutheran Cemetery.

Please see sugfestions I have submitted via SAC.

32595690 Dency Higley Case
I am working on a project at the Okoboji Cemetery located in Arnolds Park, Iowa - the above picture of the headstone added by Jerry Hillegas is a picture of the headstone in Okoboji not Milford Cemetery - the posting by Anonymous shows the Milford Cemetery sign - with a statement that burial is at Milford. But the library directories show Dency Case in Okoboji Cemetery and no Dency Case at Milford - if you would like any further information let me know - Sincerely Dorothy

Meda Higley
Inglewood Park Cemetery employee sent me a message saying that they do not have a Meda Higley buried there. Did she go by another name? (for instance, "Almeda" or something else). I noticed that you have her husband in the same cemetery. I suggest that you call the office and confirm if they are buried there. I would be happy to fulfill you request, if it is determined that they are there.

I think you might be right, but I just want to double check.

Austin Higley/Adney
Are you sure the information that you are providing for #144578740 isn't really for #144578336

144578336 is already list as Austin H. Adney while 144578740 the marker says Austin Higley.

I'm assuming from you screen name that you are related so I will trust your judgment. I have not yet declined the edit nor accepted it. I just wanted to point out the other one and make sure things are right.

So are there two named Austin H. Adney with similar years of life?
