I was wondering if there is any information on Wayne Higdon of Chicago Ill. He was the son of Thomas Leonard Higdon and Dorothy B Groth. Thomas and Dorothy had another son named Lee Higdon. Thomas Leonard came to Illinois in 1920s. I am the great grand daughter of Thomas and Dorothy, but I know very little about the Higdon line I came from. If you have any info please let me know. Thank you
