My first Higdon ancestor was JUDITH HIGDON. She married JAMES
IVANY of New Bonaventure on November 14, 1854.
I've run into a bit of trouble with this line. The only birth record that comes close to that for JUDITH HIGDON is one under the name of JUDIAS HIGDON. I believe that this is the same person.
Judith's parents were GEORGE HIGDON and BRIDGET MILLER. Their other children include
1) JOSEPH HIGDON: born on October 9, 1831 in British Harbour.
2) JOHN HIGDON: born August 18, 1837 in British Harbour and baptized on September 24, 1837. (This child probably died as an infant)
3) JOHN HIGDON: born January 2, 1838 in British Harbour and was baptized on January 10, 1838.
4) JUDIAS HIGDON: born September 1, 1834 in British Harbour and was baptized on September 2, 1834. She married JAMES IVANY (see above) on November 14, 1854.
