Thks Mike , my side is the Crawfords, so have no knowledge of the Higginson history I thought Walter may have been married twice but if Julia did not die until last qtr of 1901 and Walter is married to Clara at time of 1901 census, that does not tie up and I am going to have to try some other source of info. Thks again for your time.
