Hello flatley2bsure
Thank you for your message. Yes I did know there was another James Higgins with son James in Uggool in 1901. He can't be my James Higgins as his son James was in Uggool in 1901. The other James Higgins with wife Bridget Griffin had a son born 1871 and he is not with them in 1901. I think he was my Grandfather James Higgins who was in Prescot, Lancashire, England in 1901. He was from County Mayo and died in Liverpool, England in 1938 aged 68yrs. Since the Civil Registrations have gone online I have found that there was another James Higgins in Uggool who died prior to 16 January 1901 as his son Dominick married on that day at Kilmovee RC Church to Kate Carty. I couldn't see a Death for him but could be one of those with just an index. I also found that there was another Patrick Higgins in Uggool prior to 1901 who was living in Barcull in 1901. He was married to Mary Higgins on 26 Feb 1856 at Kilmovee RC Church and had their first child Thomas on 22 December 1856 in Cloonamna.
I think this Patrick Higgins or Mary Higgins is related to who I think is my G Grandfather James Higgins of Uggool. It maybe Mary Higgins is his sister. Patrick's father may have been Thomas Higgins.
Also James Higgins and Bridget Griffin had their first child Mary in Cloonamna in 1858. Then the following ones were born in Uggool.
The James Higgins in your tree who is married to Mary Harken has a father James also.
Looking forward to hearing more from you.

Hi Pat38, not sure if you're aware but there was a second Higgins families at Uggool (Eggool) during the periods you've mentioned who also had a father and son named James (father was 49, son 18 in 1901) - they're on my own tree.

I'm a Flatley and have Higgins and Horans within my tree (hence my interest in this thread). I note the date of the thread so wont post any specific details as yet just in case it's expired!

Manchester Rambler - I'm pretty sure there are still Cauldfields in Carralackey today (I've often passed through there when travelling between Kilmovee and Charlestown).   
Higgins, Comer, Donnelly, Hearne, Woodside, Hague, Greaves, Davison, Mooney, Rockley, McKenna, Byrne, Berry & Barnacle.
