Hi all,
my Great Granddad was Captain James HIGGINS 1842-1920, who came over from Cornwall, England with his wife, Sarah Jane nee Luke 1846-1936, c 1878, to run the Avoca mines. They lived in Tigroney House and produced 16/17 children. Second from last was my Granddad, Sydney Patrick Higgins, who married Ellen Johnson. They lived in Mill house, on the Glenart Estate and had 12 children, one of which was my Dad, Joel (Jim) James Higgins 1928- (still here).
