DEDICATION 



Dedicated to those in the past who 
have contributed something of value 
to this record and to those who will 
honor it in the future. 



"Tell ye of this to your children, and 
let your children tell their children, 
and their children to another generation, 

Joel, Chapter I 



FOREWARD 



When I started to work on this genealogical collection, more 
than ten years ago, there was no thought of making it into a 
book but only to trace the line of descent of my husband's 
great-grandfather, James Larkin Higginbotham, The data I 
collected was for my own satisfaction and pleasure. It 
wasn't long before others, learning of the material, urged 
that it be put into book form. This I have done and it is 
hoped that it will be read with interest and pride. 

Collecting genealogical information is a most difficult task. 
Inquiries meet various fates. Some letters never reached the 
right address, some were ignored, others filed for attention 
later and then forgotten, some were not returned properly 
answered and then there were descendants that I was never 
able to locate. 

On the subject of slighting someone, you will notice some 
relatives do not have as much data written about them as 
others and some have nothing. I have tried to secure infor- 
mation on all the descendants of James Larkin Higginbotham, 
but have failed to do so. 

Every reasonable effort has been made to avoid errors. Some 
may have erred without intentionally doing so in sending 
data, or names and dates may have been misread, misspelled or 
mistyped. If errors occur, and I am sure they have, I ask 
indulgence and suggest that corrections be entered "to keep 
the record straight." 

The interest I have taken in and the pleasure I have derived 
from the preparation of these records have more than repaid 
me for the effort I have devoted to it. This project has 
been one of the most enjoyable and satisfying experiences of 
my life.

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS 



I owe sincere gratitude to many individuals: relatives, 
friends, and public officials for their interest, encourage- 
ment, and assistance in making this record possible. I can- 
not list all of them individually, but 1 wish to express my 
appreciation to all who have helped me, and I am deeply 
grateful for even the smallest contribution that has been 
made . 

I especially wish to name Mrs. C. C. Chambliss, "Maggie," to 
all those that knew and loved her. Without her help I would 
never have been able to collect as much data on James Larkin 
Higginbotham and his descendents as I have. 

I also wish to name Mr. E. A. Limmer of Houston, Texas. It 
was his interest and help that made it possible for me to 
start on this manuscript. He also furnished the material on 
Benjamin Toliver Higginbotham and his descendants.

Catherine Foote Moyer also did the charting for the Magna 
Carta Sureties. Descendants of James Larkin Higginbotham may 
claim descent from the Emperor Charlemagne and the Magna 
Carta Sureties listed.

who never look backward to their ancestors.

EXPLANATORY NOTES 



The arrangement of this genealogy is in two sections. The 
first part of the book is on the early English and American 
family of Higginbotham. On the American family I have car- 
ried down the lineal descent from the Immigrant Ancestor, 
John Higginbotham of Virginia, to James Larkin Higginbotham 
of Noxubee County, Mississippi. Also will be found material 
on the brothers and sisters of James Larkin Higginbotham. 

In the second section will be found a separate chapter on 
each of the children of James Larkin Higginbotham. Primarily 
this material is a compilation of facts: names, dates, and 
places. Most of these family records were collected through 
correspondence with the families involved. 

Reference to source material used will be found following 
the statement made. All the reference books listed in this 
manuscript will be found either in the libraries of histori- 
cal and genealogical societies or in the libraries of all 
the large American cities. 

Source material was consulted such as: federal census 
records, county and state records such as birth, death, 
marriage, wills and deeds, military and pension records, land 
grants, bounty land warrants, the Macon Beacon newspaper, 
tombstone inscriptions, and family Bibles. 

The two numbers with a dash between, appearing in front of 
a name, stand for the generation from the Immigrant Ancestor 
and the children in order of their birth; i.e., 5-6 James 
Larkin Higginbotham, 5th generation from John Higginbotham, 
the Immigrant Ancestor, and the 6th child of Benjamin Graves 
Higginbotham. Each generation is indented further in from 
the left margin of the page. 

Following is the key to the abbreviations used in the book.

THE MAGNA CARTA 



On June 15, 1215, the barons of England, the yeomen of 
the countryside and the burghers of the cities formed an army 
to defy King John and his 60,000 mercenaries who had been 
ravaging the country. 

Organized by Stephen Langton, a Roman Cardinal holding 
the high office of Archbishop of Canterbury, the army camped 
in a meadow called Runnymede, close to present day London. 
Here they met King John to demand of him that he sign a 
charter we know as the Magna Carta. 

This world famous charter was the first major break- 
through in the age old battle for human rights. 

Queen Elizabeth II has referred to it as "the corner- 
stone of our liberties." 

John Adams, second president of the United States, cited 
the Magna Carta in justifying the revolt of the English 
Colonists against George III. 

The rights and freedoms in the Charter were not fully 
realized for centuries but they laid the foundation that made 
possible two other Charters, the Petition of Rights in 1628 
and the Declaration of Rights in 1688. 

The original Magna Carta was altered several times to 
deal with fast changing conditions, but without loss of the 
rights and freedoms embodied in the King John version of 
1215. The final document was signed in 1225 by Henry III and 
confirmed by Edward I in 1297. 

Of the original 25 signers of the Magna Carta the des- 
cendants of James Larkin Higginbotham may claim the 
following: 

1. William d'Albini, lord of Belvoir Castle. 

2. Hugh Bigod, the Earl of Norfolk's heir. 

3. Roger Bigod, Earl of Norfolk and Suffolk. 

4. Gilbert de Clare, the Earl of Hertford's heir. 

5. Richard de Clare, Earl of Hertford. 

6. John Fitzrobert, lord of Warkworth Castle. 

7. John de Lacie, lord of Halton Castle. 

8. Saire de Quincey, Earl of Winchester. 

9. Robert de Roos , lord of Hamlake Castle.

THE FAMILY OF HIGGINBOTHAM 



The Coat of Arms of the English family of Higginbotham is 
described in heraldic terms as follows: 



ARMS 
CREST 

MOTTO 



"Argent, A rose gules, barbed vert, seeded or." 

"A dexter and sinister arm discharging an arrow 
from a bow, all proper." 



"Autvincere Aut Mori." 

When translated, the Coat of Arms is described as follows: 

ARMS A red rose with five green leaves between the 
petals. Seeds of gold in the center, all on a 
silver shield. 

CREST A right hand and left arm discharging an arrow 
from a bow all in natural color. 

MOTTO By aim and by effort. 

(The General Armory of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, 
by Edmund Burke. Fairbanks Book of Crests of the Families 
of Great Britain and Ireland. Glossary of Terms Used in 
Heraldry, by Henry Cough and James Parker.) 



The surname of Higginbotham is generally believed to be 
derived from the residence of its first bearers in the 
neighborhood of Marple and Macclesfield in East Cheshire, 
England. It is generally agreed that the name was first 
given to the bottom, or hollow depression in the land, where 
Higgin or Hickin resided. (A Dictionary of English and Welsh 
Surnames, by Charles W. Bradsley.) 

Some historians, however, maintain that the name is of German 
origin and a corruption of the name Icken-baum, meaning an 
Oak tree. (English Magazine, Notes and Queries, 2nd Series, 
1856, Volume 1, pages 269 and 417.) 

In ancient English and early American records the name appears 
in the various spellings of Higenbotham, Hickenbotham, Hickin- 
bottom, Hickinbotham, Higginbottom, Higinbotham, Higginbotham, 



10 



and innumerable others. Of the ones mentioned, the last is 
the spelling most often used in America. (A Dictionary of 
British Surnames, by P. H. Reaney.) 

In the American records of John Higginbotham, the progenitor, 
there appears a double "g" in the spelling of the name. The 
records of John Higinbotham in Barbados employ a single "g" 
in the spelling of Higinbotham. Actually there was no stan- 
dardized spelling in the 18th century. Proper names were 
subjected to variations in spelling. 

In the sixteenth century the name Higginbotham, and variants 
of the name, was found in several counties of England, 
especially in Lancashire and Cheshire. Early records of the 
family include those of Ottywell Higginbotham about 1522; 
those of Nicholas Heginbotham of Marple, in Cheshire about 
1579 and Alice Higginbotham of Marple in 1595. The parish 
registers of Stockport, Cheshire, England contains 88 refer- 
ences to Higginbothams between the years 1584 and 1620. 
(William and Mary Quarterly, first series. Volume 26, page 
205.) 

Among a list of freeholders of Cheshire in 1662 and owners of 
land in Marple is found the name of Andrew Hegginbotham. 
Then in 1672 the names of Ottiwell Heginbothome, Oliver 
Heginbotham and Robert Heginbotham are found. (Henry Hegin- 
botham, Stockport: Ancient and Modern, Volume 2, pages 301, 
395.) 



Members of the Cheshire branch of the Higginbotham family 
settled at an early date in Barbados, British West Indies. 
Among the probate acts of the Prerogative Court of Chancery 
in London, England was found a will of Otwell Higginbotham, 
dated 17 September 1649, Barbados, being bound in a voyage 
for England, in which he made beauests to "my father Oliver 
Higginbotham and Anne my mother, son William Higginbotham; 
daughter Anne Higginbotham; brothers William, John and 
Oliver Higginbotham; "to my cosen Captain John Higginbotham 
in the Barbados," and to cosens John, Joan, Martha, Alice, 
Sara, Priscilla and Mary, children of Captain John 
Higginbotham. 

Nicholas Higginbotham of Cheshire, England and Captain John 
Higginbotham of Barbados, are named as executors of the will 
which was proved in England, 30 January 1651-52. (William 
and Mary Quarterly, Volume 26, pages 205, 206.) 



11 

Captain John Higginbotham, just named in the previous will, 
is the son of Anthony Higginbotham of Cheshire, England and 
the grandson of Nicholas Higginbotham, of Cheshire. (Maga- 
zine of History and Biography, Volume 52, page 290.) 

Captain John Higginbotham is mentioned in "A List of names 
of the inhabitants of Barbados in the year 1638, who then 
possessed more than ten acres of land." (Memoirs of the 
First Settlement of Barbados, 1743.) 

In a list of "Gentlemen of the country," (Barbados) about the 
year 1666, is found mentioned: "Lieutenant Colonel Higgen- 
bottom, Lieutenant Colonel Richard Bayley and Major William 
Bates, stout men and fitt for Command." (B.P.R.O. Colonial 
Papers, Volume 20.) 

Captain John Higginbotham, Lieutenant Colonel in his will, 
lived in the Parish of Saint Philip, Island of Barbados, 
British West Indies. He was a wealthy and influential 
planter. His will was dated 13 October 1673 and entered for 
probate in the Barbados, 27 November 1673. (Barbados Wills, 
Parish of Saint Philip, Volume 9, page 23. The Higginbotham 
Family, by William M. Sweeny, pages 3 to 8.)

Captain John Higinbotham, son of Lieutenant Colonel John 
Higinbotham, whose will you just read, was a Captain in the 
Barbados. For business reasons he returned to England where 
he was engaged in trade with Jamaica and New England. 

In February 1683, Charles Codrington leased to him two plan- 
tations in the Parish of Saint John, Barbados, called 
Didmartons and Consetts , together 750 acres, at the annual 
rent of 2,200 pounds sterling. (Magazine of History and 
Biography, Volume 52, pages 291-295.)

mon Juris format con me. Tho : Wainwright. 

In the name of God Amen. I, John Higinbotham of 
Salford in the County of Lancaster, Merchant, being 
weak and infirm but through mercy of good and perfect 
memory do make, publish and declare my Last Will and 
Testament in manner following: 

And First--! will that the charges of my Burial 
and my just debts (if any shall be owing by me at time 
of my death) shall be duly paid out of my Estate 
leaving the expenses of my Burial the discretion of 
my Executors herein after named with this advice only 
that the same be decent but not extravagant. 

Item--I give unto my beloved wife Anne Higinbotham, 
One Thousand Pounds, one standing bed, one feather bed, 
one bolster, two pillows, two pair of sheets, one pair 
Blankets, one Vuggon quilt, with hangings and all other 
usual furniture for beds all to be taken out of my goods 
as her own then also I give and bequeath unto my said 
wife 6 bowere bound with blue and usually standing in 
the chamber where I lodge. One looking glasse, one 
small table likewise I give unto her one wooden chest 
used for putting cloaths, four pewter dishes, one dozen 
pewter plates. Two table cloths, one dozen napkins, one 
half dozen towells and to be used by my wife as afore- 
said. And I Will that all the said goods shall be 
delivered to my said wife upon her first demand there- 
after my decease and further give and bequeath and 
appoint unto my said wife the sum of Twenty Pounds to 
be paid in the manner following: That is to say I Will 
that mine Executors or some of them shall pay my said 
wife within 20 days after my decease the sum of six 
pounds then and thence forwards continue so long as she 
shall live and the Allowance for my said wife in manner 
aforesaid. I will appoint and declare in full satis- 
faction of Power and all claymes whatsoever which she 
would or might have in my Estate or any part Thereof 
upon and pretense whatever. 

Item--I give and bequeath unto my son, Charles 
Higinbotham of and in the Barbados the sum of Twenty 
Pounds and during his lifetime to be paid by two Small 
portions in said year according as by my letters I have 



18 



heretofore given him to order to draw Bills. And I 
will that such his Bills as may or shall come after 
my death be duly paid by mine Executors same not 
regarding Twenty Pounds Sterling in said year afore- 
said but if Son Charles Higinbotham shall desire and 
choose to have and retain Two Hundred Pounds in one 
entire payment rather than these yearly payments sums 
of Twenty Pounds after my decease and accept of Two 
Hundred Pounds in lieu or instead thereof then for 
his satisfaction through and also for easing mine 
Executors from the trouble of returning the yearly 
payments I give and bequeath unto him my sd. son 
Charles Higinbotham the sum of Two Hundred Pounds. 
And I will order that mine Executors some short time 
after my death notify and advise sd. Son Charles Higin- 
botham that he may draw Bills of Exchange upon them 
being accepted and paid shall fully absolve thereof 
discharge to mine Executors of and from this said 
annuity or yearly payment (which I intend only to 
continue until my son accept the said Two Hundred 
Pounds) and also for said Two Hundred Pounds. And 
I give unto my sd. Son Charles Higinbotham no more 
than the said annuity and said Two Hundred Pounds in 
lieu and instead thereof having heretofore given to 
and paid for him largeley. But 1 give and bequeath 
unto my seven Grandsons and one Granddaughter, 
children of my sd. Son Charles Higinbotham namely, 
John, Charles, Thomas, William, Joseph, Benjamin, 
Clever and Millicent each of them to receive One 
Hundred Pounds Sterling to be paid them respectively 
as they shall attain the age of one and twenty years. 
And I do further Will Order and Appoint that the 
interest and improvement of the said sums of money 
given to my Grandchildren so soon any can be made 
thereof shall be employed for and towards the Main- 
tenance and Education of my said Grandchildren until 
they or such of them as shall live to the aforesaid 
age in such a case I Appoint what is given to such of 
them as shall be underage aforesaid or younger child 
or children as my sd. Son Charles Higginbotham hath 
or hereafter may have and for want to such to goe and 
be equally divided unto and amongst the survivors to 
and of those above named: John, Charles, Thomas, 
William, Joseph, Benjamin, Clever, Millicent. And 
whereas the distance is great betwixt the said Islands 
of Barbados and this place and some of my Grandchildren 
very young and the Interest of money there being 
almost double to what it is here and it being reason- 
able to think mine Executors may desire to be quit 
of this troublesome conversion will allow from which 
consideration I take to be fit accordingly do hereby 
Will and Appoint that this Eight Hundred Pounds Ster- 
ling herein I give as aforesaid to my said Grandchildren 



19 



shall be paid by mine Executors within the space of 
one year right after my decease unto their hands or 
Order of my said Son Charles Higinbotham or if he be 
dead then to the order of his Executor or some other 
person or persons as shall have the Guardianship or 
Management of my said Grandchildren to be Improved, 
Employed, dispose and paid to and for their several 
ages in manner aforesaid. And that I request that 
mine Executor will not fail giving notice by the first 
opportunity after my decease to my sd. Son Charles 
Higinbotham if living or if dead to his Executor or 
such person or persons interested with or for my said 
Grandchildren of this my Gift. And hereby will to 
them and give leave and advice to draw Bills for the 
said Eight Hundred Pounds upon the said Executors with 
caution of allowing sufficient time because most of 
the sum will be in from such persons as are indebted 
to me which cannot always be done on a suddain. And 
I will that such Bill or Bills as charged by such 
person or persons as aforesaid shall at all time be 
a full Acquittance, Release and Discharge to my said 
Executors and under Specific duty of their respective 
Executor and Administration against all and every 
claim Demands and of my said Grandchildren or any of 
them or other person or persons for or on their behalf 
of them or every one of them. 

Item--I give and appoint unto my daughter, Milli- 
cent Alexander, Widdow, the use of Four Hundred Pounds 
to be mine Executor kept continued at Interest and the 
said Interest to be paid and delivered in to her hands 
and to so continue as long as my daughter shall live 
solo and not remarry. And I give and appoint the said 
Four Hundred Pounds at the decease of my daughter 
Millicent Alexander or her marriage again whether 
shall first happen unto or equally her four young 
children, Charles, Joseph, Millicent, Mary Alexander 
at their respective ages of one and twenty. And I 
Will, Give and Appoint that the interest of the said 
Four Hundred Pounds after the marriage or decease of 
my said daughter Millicent shall be divided between 
Charles and Joseph and Mary and Millicent Alexander 
my Grandchildren, And if any of them shall depart 
this life before he or she attains full age of one 
and twenty years then the part of him or her or them 
so dying shall go to be divided equally amongst the 
survivors, share and share alike. 

Item--I give and appoint this Interest of Four 
Hundred Pounds unto the sole use of my daughter Beulah 
Higinbotham for and during the term of her natural 
life and Will and Order mine Executors to pay the 
same unto my daughter Beulah Higinbotham. And I 



20 



declare it is my Mind and Will that my Son-in-law 
Henry Higinbotham shall not have or employ the said 
Interest of the said Four Hundred Pounds unless it is 
for the sole and separate use of my said daughter 
Beulah Higinbotham and that no part allowed in any 
wise my son-in-law Henry Higinbotham to grant or assign 
or any other disposal but shall govern or be paid into 
and for the sole and separate use of my said daughter 
Beulah Higinbotham. And if my daughter Beulah Higin- 
botham shall leave no children I Will and Appoint the 
last mentioned Four Hundred Founds to be divided 
amongst the children of my daughter Elizabeth Ban- 
croft or so many of them as shall be living. 

Item--I Will, Give and Appoint unto my daughter, 
Elizabeth Bancroft the Interest of Four Hundred Pound? 
Sterling so long as my said daughter Elizabeth Bran- 
coft shall live and after her decease I Will that the

namely: Benjamin, Thomas, Mary, Elizabeth, Ann

without leaving heirs for want of such amongst my last 
named Grandchildren I Give and bequeath unto Charles

and Mary Alexander four of the children of my daughter 
Millicent and to such of them four Two Hundred Pounds 
to be paid severally as they attain the age of one and

cies do fall or become due and are actually paid.

John Higinbotham (Seal--Tudor Rose) 

Sealed and signed by the within named John Higin- 
botham Testator for and as his last Will being written 
on three sheets of paper (4th September 1713) . Witnessed 
by John Chapman and Hugh Parr. 



Charles Higinbotham, the son of Captain John Higinbotham, of 
Barbados and Salfor, Lancaster, England, was named in his 
father's will, which you just read. 

This Charles Higinbotham lived in Barbados and his will, 
dated 17 August 1732, proved in Barbados 20 May 1734; names 
wife Ann, sons Cleaver Higinbotham and John Higinbotham; 
granddaughters Ann Reddin, Hopizbah Higinbotham and Ann 
Higinbotham. (Barbados Wills, Volume 24, page 92. Magazine 
of History and Biography, Volume 52, page 290.) 

Mrs. Ann Higinbotham, the widow of Charles Higinbotham, in 
her will, dated 29 March 1740, proved in the Barbados, 28 
August 1740, names her sons John, Charles, Thomas, Joseph 
and Clever Higinbotham; grandson John Reddin; granddaughter 
Ann Reddin. (Barbados Wills, Volume 32, page 285. Magazine 
of History and Biography, Volume 52, page 290.) 



22 



John Higginbotham, son of Charles and Ann Higginbotham, of 
the Barbados, whose wills have just been referred to, was 
also named as a legatee in the will of his grandfather. 
Captain John Higginbotham. 

There is found in the Boston Massachusetts Registry Depart- 
ment, Report 29, page 238, this record: 

"Vessels Entered in the month of July 1716 
July 11 Benjamin Evans ye sloop Betty from Barbados 

John Higinbotham a Planter." 

Thus it is that we find John Higinbotham, evidently at the 
time he received the legacy directed by the will of his 
grandfather, leaving the Barbados and arriving in Boston. 
It is believed he stayed some years in Maryland and then 
went to Virginia where he died between the years 1741 and 
1744, leaving a widow Frances and six sons and a daughter. 
(Magazine of History and Biography, Volume 52, page 291.) 

The identification of John Higginbotham, of Virginia, who 
died between 1741 and 1744, with John Higginbotham, the son 
of Charles and Ann Higginbotham, of the Barbados, and grand- 
son of Captain John Higginbotham, of the Barbados and Sal- 
ford, Lancaster, England is strengthened by the following 
fact. 

In an old trunk of papers belonging to Colonel James Higgin- 
botham, of Amherst County, Virginia, son of John and Frances 
(Riley) Higginbotham, was found a book entitled "Action Upon 
the Case for Slander," by W. Sheppard Esquire, London 1662. 
On the fly leaf of this book appears part of the signature 
of a Nicholas Higginbotham. This has been identified as 
seventeenth century handwriting. On another page of this 
same book appears the entry "Joseph Higginbotham died 
April 17th 1742." This Joseph Higginbotham seems most 
probably to have been Joseph, son of Charles Higginbotham, 
of Barbados, and younger brother of John Higginbotham of the 
Barbados, Boston, Massachusetts, and at last of Virginia. 
(Magazine of History and Biography, Volume 52, page 291.) 

In the office of the Land Register at Richmond, Virginia, 
are recorded patents to Higginbothams for about 20,000 
acres of land in Albemarle and Amherst Counties between the 
years 1749 and 1800. 

We find from the records of Albemarle County that Moses 
Higginbotham, who was apparently the eldest son of John 
Higginbotham, under dates of April 23 and 24, 1745, pur- 
chased from George Braxton, Jr. of King and Queen County, 
two parcels of land consisting of 1,000 and 1,430 acres 
respectively. This land was located on the Buffalo River. 



23 



Then between April 30 and May 11, 1751, Moses conveyed 
2,024 acres of this property to his brothers and to William 
Morrison, who had married his sister, Rachel Higginbotham. 

All parties to the transaction, except George Braxton, Jr. , 
were of Albemarle County. The consideration named was the 
nominal sum of five shillings, "current money of Virginia," 
for each parcel of land, as follows: 



To Aaron Higginbotham 

To Benjamin Higginbotham 

To John Higginbotham 

To Joseph Higginbotham 

To James Higginbotham 

To William Morrison 



204 acres 

204 acres 

200 and 204 acres 

200 and 204 acres 

200 and 204 acres 

200 and 204 acres 



It is believed that this was a division of the estate left 
by John Higginbotham, deceased, to be divided between his 
children after the death of their mother. 



According to the census returns and tax lists the following 
heads of families of the name were living in Amherst County. 
Virginia towards the close of the eighteenth century: 



1783 



1785 



William Higginbotham

" These Higginbothams migrated to Elbert County, Georgia. 

(William and Mary Quarterly, Volume 26, 1917-1918, pages 

208-210.) 

The members of the Higginbotham family occupied a prominent 
position and took an active part in political and religious 
matters--serving on juries, acting as surveyors and filling 
those places that intelligent and respected citizens usually 
are called upon to fill in the place where they have made 
their home. 



24 

They were very patriotic and loyal as shown by the numbers 
who have fought in the wars. 

They were hardy pioneers who faced and overcame the dangers 
and hardships inherent to carving out new frontiers. In the 
great migrations which surged westward after the Revolutionary 
War, they were in the vanguard.

JOHN HIGGINBOTHAM, IMMIGRANT ANCESTOR 

John^ Higginbotham (Charles, Captain John, Lieutenant Colonel 
John, Anthony, Nicholas) was the Immigrant Ancestor and the 
son of Charles and Ann Higginbotham. He was born 10 June 1695 
in the Parish of Saint Philip, Barbados, British West Indies 
and baptised 31 July 1695 at the Saint Philip Parish Church. 
(Volume 22, page 62, Saint Philip Parish records.) It is 
generally believed that he died in Virginia between the years 
1741 and 1744. 

The marriage date of John Higginbotham to Frances Riley is 
not known. He could have married while visiting relations in 
Maryland and lived there for a while before moving to Vir- 
ginia. There was a John Ryley living in Brittaines Bay, 
Saint Mary's County, Maryland, whose will was dated 3 April 
1707 and recorded 23 April 1709. In the will he gives, "To 
son, executive, dwelling plantation Green Hill at head of 
Brittaines Bay; he dying without issue to pass to five daugh- 
ters; Frances and Winifred share of estate equal to those 
already given daughters Mary Bright, Elizabeth Peake and 
Margaret Tomson." (Maryland Calendar of Wills.) 

John and Frances Higginbotham settled in Virginia in the 
early seventeen hundreds. They settled first in Goochland 
County in the section that became Albemarle County in 1744 
and later became Amherst County in 1761, They made their 
home in the southwest part at the foot of the Blue Ridge 
Mountains on the Buffalo River. (Higginbotham Family, by 
William M. Sweeny and Land Deeds.) 

Frances Higginbotham, the widow of John Higginbotham, sur- 
vived her husband many years. It is believed she died about 
1751 in Albemarle County, Virginia. Extracts from the Diary 
of Reverend Robert Rose, Rector of Saint Ann's Parish, Albe- 
marle County, Virginia, between the years 1747-1751, gives 
valuable information on the life of Mrs. Higginbotham and her 
family:

1751. His Diary is found in the Brock Collection, Huntington 
Library, San Marino, California. A photostat copy is in the 
Archives Department of the State Library, Richmond, Virginia. 

All the sons of John Higginbotham either served, furnished 
supplies or helped in other ways during the Revolutionary War. 

The Revolutionary War had left many Virginians penniless and 
restless of spirit. How to improve their condition was a 
grave question. In this crisis, Georgia held out the best 
choice of land. This land could be obtained without any cost 
except the expense of surveying. A large number of emigrants, 
chiefly from Virginia, North and South Carolina, availed 
themselves of this opportunity to get themselves valuable 
homes. Several of the Higginbotham families, along with 
neighbors, made this move from Amherst County, Virginia, to 
Wilkes County, Georgia, around the year 1784.

BENJAMIN GRAVES HIGGINBOTHAM 

BENJAMIN GRAVES^ HIGGINBOTHAM (Benjamin^, Benjamin^, John^) 
was the son of Benjamin and Mary (Gatewood) Higginbotham. He 
was born on 17 February 1788 in Wilkes County, Georgia. He 
died on 23 April 1862 in Noxubee County, Mississippi and is 
buried in the Lloyd Cemetery [now known as Butler Cemetery]. 
(Birth date, Graves Bible record. Death date, wife's Pension 
application. Burial place, letter dated 29 July 1944 from 
P. G. Whitehead to Mr. E. A. Limmer of Houston, Texas. The 
Bible record was in possession of P. G. Whitehead in 1944.

Benjamin Graves Higginbotham was married on 2 January 1812, 
in Elbert County, Georgia, to Mary Foster Lawless, daughter 
of John and Tabitha (Rowzee) Lawless and granddaughter of 
Thomas Lawless. (Marriage date, Elbert County, Georgia Will 
Book and Mixed records, 1809-1812, page 325 and Bible record.) 

MARY FOSTER (LAWLESS) HIGGINBOTHAM was born on 24 November 
1795, in Elbert County, Georgia. She died between the years 
1875 and 1877 either in Kemper, Winston or Noxubee Counties, 
Mississippi. She is buried in the Lloyd Cemetery. She was 
listed on the 1870 census for Kemper County, Mississippi but 
not found in the 1880 census for Kemper, Neshoba, Winston or 
Noxubee Counties. (Birth date and burial place same refer- 
ence as above.)

S:^ O ty months and continued in actual service in the war for the 
Ci3 I r- term of three months and was then honorably discharged at

^ 3 LL chiefly in the building of forts. (His petition for bounty 
^g^ land and wife's Widow pension application number 11529, both

C3 1815. 

Benjamin Graves Higginbotham was listed on an 1815 tax 
list of Elbert County, Georgia. He was in Captain Christian's 
District. (Georgia State Archives.) 

1820. 

He is not found in the Georgia Census for 1820, but 
could have been in one of the counties whose records are 
lost. 

1822-1833. 

The last child born in Georgia was in 1822. The next

three children were born in Alabama in 1825, 1828 and 1833. 
We know he was living in Green County, Alabama, in 1828 when 
his son, James Larkin was born. (Bible record of Benjamin 
Graves Higginbotham and Bible record of his grandson, George 
Washing ton Higg inbo tham . ) 

Benjamin Graves Higginbotham was living in Dallas 
County, Alabama, in the year 1830 where he is found listed on 
the census for that County. 

1835. 

About the year 1835, Benjamin Graves Higginbotham and 
his family moved from Alabama to Mississippi where they set- 
tled in the hill country in the south west part of Noxubee 
County. This was only a few years after the county had been 
formed from the Choctaw Purchase. I quote from the unpub- 
lished History of Noxubee County, Mississippi, by John Ander- 
son Tyson and published in the Macon Beacon in 1926-1927. 

"Mr. Halbert states that Mr. :, . L. Higginbotham, who had 
lived near the treaty ground since 1835, has repeatedly 
pointed out to him the place described as the spot where the 
treaty of Dancing Rabbit was made and signed, the information 
of Mr. Higginbotham resting upon the statements of two pio- 
neer settlers of Noxubee County, both of whom were present 
during the negotiations at Dancing Rabbit and were eye wit- 
nesses to the signing of the treaty. Viz; Mr. Hilcar Burwell, 
who was one of the first settlers of Mashulaville , and 
Mr. G. W. Campbell, who died at his residence near Shuqualak 
in 1888. Mr. Higginbotham stated that these two men had fre- 
quently pointed the place out to him. Mr. Higginbotham made 
the additional statement that his brother-in-law, Lorenzo 
Thomas, in 1849, built a split log cabin with a chimney to 
the south on the very spot where the treaty was made. This 
cabin has long since disappeared, but, if by close search, 
some traces of the old chimney site could be discovered, it 
will give almost the exact spot of signing the treaty." 
(Chapter on Indians, page 26. History found in the Noxubee 
County Court House and Library, Macon, Mississippi and in the 
Mississippi State Archives, Jackson, Mississippi.) 

1838. 

Benjamin Graves Higginbotham made his home in the Fleet- 
wood Mountains, where there was an abundance of springs, 
game and timber supply. It was here his last child was born 
in 1838. 

1840. 

He is listed on the 1840 United States Census for Noxu- 
bee County, Mississippi. 

1850. 

On the 1850 census for Noxubee County he gives his occu- 
pation as a Planter. His wife, Polly; son John Lawless; 
daughter, Mary Gatewood Higginbotham; and their youngest 



53 



child, Tabitha, was also listed. 

1860. 

On the 1860 Noxubee County census he is listed as Graves 
Higginbotham and his occupation as a farmer. Listed in his 
household was his wife, Polly; daughter, Tabitha; and married 
daughter, Mary Green, and her son, James. Summerville is 
given as his place of residence. 

The records of the former General Land Office, now in the 
National Archives in Washington, D.C., shows that Benjamin 
Graves Higginbotham on 16 May 1851, applied for a Bounty Land 
Warrant for 80 acres to which he was entitled to under the 
Act passed 28 September 1850, granting bounty land to certain 
officers and soldiers who had been engaged in military ser- 
vice of the United States. I am typing the following two 
letters as they are handwritten and very hard to read. The 
signatures on these two letters are taken from the original 
copies. The rest of the letters and documents will be in 
their original form. 

State of Mississippi 
County of Noxubee 

On the 16th day of May A.M. One 
Thousand Eight Hundred and Fifty One, personaly appreared 
before me, a Justice of the Peace within and for the County 
and State affore said, Benjamin G. Higginbotham age sixty 
three years a resident of Noxubee County in the State of 
Mississippi, who being duly sworn according to law declares 
that he is the identical Benjamin G. Higginbotham who was a 
Lieutenant in the Company commanded by Captain Charles Carter 
in the Reginment Number (not recollected) of Georgia Militia 
Commanded by General Floyd in the War with Great Britain 
declared by the United States on the 18th day of June 1812 
that he volunteered at Elbert Court House on the 1st day of 
August A.D. 1813 for the term of six months and continued in 
actual service in the war for the term of three months and 
was honorably discharged at Camp Hope on the 1st day of Nov- 
ember A.D. 1813 as will appear by the Muster Rolls of said 
Company, the original having been lost or mislaid, he makes 
this declaration for the purpose of obtaining the Bounty Land 
to which he may be entitled to under the Act granting Bounty 
Land to certain officers and soldiers who have been engaged 
in the military service of the United States, passed 
September 28th, A.D. 1850. 




Sworn to and subscribed before me the day and year above 
written and I hereby certify that I believe him to be the 



54 



identical man who served as afforesaid and that he is of the 
age above stated. 




QcT^ 



Benjamin Graves received his Bounty Land Warrant, number 
31,924 for 80 acres in March of 1852 then he legally disposed 
of it. 

On the 26th day of July 1855 he sent the following letter 
asking for additional bounty land he was now entitled under 
the new Act of 3 March 1855. 

State of Mississippi 
Noxubee County 

On this 26th day of July, A.D. 1855, 
before me a Justice of the Peace in and for the county and 
state afforesaid personally appeared B. G. Higginbotham aged 
67 years who being duly sworn according to law declares that 
he is the identical person who was a Lieutenant in the com- 
pany commanded by Captain Carter in the Regiment of Volun- 
teers commanded by General Floyd that he voluntered in 
Elbert County, in the State of Georgia on or about the time 
(not recollected) he further states that he had received for 
said service Bounty Land Warrant No. 31,924 of Eighty Acres 
issued under the Act of 1850 by reason of said service which 
he has since legally disposed of and cannot now return, he 
makes this declaration for the purpose of obtaining the addi- 
tional bounty land to which he is entitled under the Act of 
March the 3rd., 1855, never having received bounty land 
except as above stated. 




We, Solomon Edwards and George Bateman, residents of 
Noxubee County in the State of Mississippi, upon our oath 
declare that the foregoing declaration was signed and 
acknowledged by B. G. Higginbotham in our presence and that 
we believe from the appearance and statements of the appli- 
cant that he is the identical person he represents himself 
to be. 

The foregoing declaration and affidavit were sworn to 
and subscribed before me the day and year above written and 
I certify that I know the applicant to be credible persons 



55 



that the claimant is the person he represents himself to be 
and that I have no interest in this claim. 





^r^-^J^^Tt^^/ y^^A/. 



e,^ 



Before March of 1857, Graves Higginbotham received notice 
that his claim for bounty land, warrant No. 46,765 for 80 
acres, had been suspended because there had been two appli- 
cations by two Benjamin G. Higginbo thams , both in Captain 
Carter s Company of Georgia Militia, War of 1812. 

On 20 March 1857, Benjamin Graves Higginbotham had J. C. 
Holmes make and send an affidavit to the Land Office stating 
that the notice of suspension of the claim had been sent to 
Macon, a distance of 18 to 20 miles from where he lived and 
consequently did not get it until recently. 

Mr. J. C. Holmes then states that he had corresponded with 
the attorney of the other Higginbotham, who lived near 
Oxford, Lafayette County, Mississippi, and was informed that 
he had obtained the bounty for him by his merely making out 
an affidavit to the effect, that there were two Higgin- 
bothams in Captain Carter's Company. 

This evidently wasn't enough proof as there were a number of 
letters sent to and received from the Land Office through the 
years 1857 and 1858. 

Benjamin Graves Higginbotham had not received his warrant by 
May 1st 1858 when he appeared before a Justice of the Peace 
in Winston County, Mississippi making a declaration to this 
effect and appointed Tucker Lloyd of Washington, D.C., his 
attorney to prosecute his claim and procure his warrant. At 
this time, Graves Higginbotham was 70 years of age. 



Declaralioa to he made by a surviving OJJiccr of Soldier claiming additional Bounty Land.

Benjamin Graves Higginbotham finally received his bounty land 
warrant, number 46,765, and then assigned the warrant "for 
value received" to a William Cook. 

Benjamin Graves Higginbotham died in Noxubee County, Missis- 
sippi on 23 April 1862. He was buried in the Lloyd Grave- 
yard, now known as the Butler Cemetery. 

Polly Higginbotham was listed in the 1870 census for Kemper 
County, Mississippi. Her occupation was given as keeping 
house and her Post Office as Kelly's Store. Living in the 
same household was her daughter, Tabitha Higginbotham, age 
32, Ann Higginbotham, age 15, and Sophia Seal, age 4. 

Polly Higginbotham applied for a Widow's Pension, under the 
Act of 14 February 1871, in the Justices Court, District Num- 
ber 4, Noxubee County, Mississippi, on 7 April 1875, At this 
time she was 79 years of age. She gave her address as 
Hashuqua, Mississippi. 

This pension claim, number 11529, was filed in Washington, 
D.C. on 15 July 1875, by her attorney, Horatio King. 

On 1 August 1877, her pension claim was rejected by reason of 
abandonment. This was most likely because of her death.

Now the story is told. Many have lived, 
loved, and died throughout these pages of 
time covering a span of over two hundred 
years. 

"Generation after generation passeth away 
and another generation cometh." What will 
the next two hundred years bring to these 
family lines? Who will write that story 
now in the making? Or, in that far off day, 
will this just become "a tale that was told" 
of the very long ago.
