John Higgins, Born 1879 in Tully, Frenchpark, Roscommon
« on: Friday 06 April 18 12:56 BST (UK) »
John's parents were Michael Higgins and Anne Devaney.  I have located a John from "Sully" in the English 1911 census.  He is living with his wife and child.  This is the last of the 13 children of Michael Higgins and Anne Devaney that I have not researched.  Would love to learn more about John's life and family....  With thanks. :o

Yes,  I have a web site with all of my research.  MarieHiggins.TribalPages.com.  I have just located James but have yet to update the site.  John is the last child.  Please feel free to visit.  Info on living people, of course, is hidden except for their names.

Hello,

Is this him? You have to sign in  on the site but it is free. You say, he has a child though and this man hasnít.

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XWTZ-JVB

You obviously have his past history so presumably it is his life from marriage and 1911 onwards that you are searching?

There is this marriage
September 1905 West Derby
John Higgins and Annie Tempany - might that be him? There are Tempanys in Skreen.

Not sure what is being looked for!  It's posted under Roscommon so must be looking for Roscommon stuff (??)  but if all the others have been found it's just a matter of looking in same place for him!
Give a man a record and you feed him for a day.
Teach a man to research, and you feed him for a lifetime.

I looked at Marieís site. John not traced so I suppose this is checking on the one in the census.

The marriage certificate would show fatherís name to confirm or otherwise,  so that would be the next step.
