Here's a note from Frances that appears in the July 1991, Higdon Family Newsletter, #235, regarding her father who died suddenly in 1990.

"I did not ask enough questions about the 'old days.' I do have two elderly uncles to help fill in some information. But I wish I had heard it from Daddy. Daddy traced his roots to Daniel Higdon of Charles City County, Virginia."

There is a lesson here for all of us. We should ask questions now about our family history.
