Yes, William J. Higgins did have a son named Henry, born in Mississippi
Other children were:
George born in Mississippi 1859
Margaret S. (my great-grandmother) born in Mississippi 1865 died
Robert W. born in Alabama 1868
Mabel born in Alabama 1872
John Y. born in Alabama 1875
The 1870 census shows them living in the Big Coon / Fackler Station
area, very close to William's older sister Margaret Higgins (b.1817 in
Tennessee), who married Charles Lewis Roach.
