There were three Higgs on the 1810 Bertie Co. NC. Census, William Higg, Theophilus Higgs, and Reubin Higgs. I have been looking for my Sextons. Peter G. Sexton married Malinda Higgs 14 Jul 1845 in Stewart Co. TN. The Sexton were from the Wake Co. NC. area. I don't yet who the parents of Peter Sexton or Malinda Higgs are. Can you tie this in with your info.

I have a "Henry" Higgs, father of Ivory Aniston Higgs. We aren't sure of his real name, but maybe William Henry Higgs is it? Drop me a note if you have any information about that. Born in 1850 in Ireland.
