Just getting started in this. I came across your entry sying that Judge Higginbotham was your father's cousin. According to my mother Judge higginbotham was my fathers cousin. His name was Emmett Higginbotham born in Arrington, VA in 1914. His father was Ulysses Higginbotham born in Arrington, VA in 1892. From checking the message trail Arrington, VA is just up the road from Lynchburg, VA wich in in Amerst County?! If this is true we hvae some connection. My grandmother was Cruzetta Braxto also from Arrington, VA
My grandfather I think had a brother but I don't know yhe name. He had three sons and a daughter, Emmett E., Harrison, Ulysses, and Anna.
Hope to hear from you soon on this messge board or you can email me.
