OBITUARY - REV. A. A. HIGGINS

Allen Arza HIGGINS, a resident of Yuma County for 30 years, died Monday morning [January 6, 1931] at his country home some 10 miles south of Eckley. Funeral services were held at Bethel Church, south of Eckley, Wednesday morning. Rev. Roscoe WHITTENBURG officiating and the interment was at the Eckley Cemetery.

The family has resided in that section ever since, but the quarter section has grown to over three full sections, although the original homestead continues to be part of the present big farm. Mr. HIGGINS was known as one of the most successful wheat and corn growers in northeastern Colorado.

He leaves his helpmate of many years [Bessie (CAMPBELL) HIGGINS, ten children, five married and five single, eight granchildren, three brothers and two sisters. The brothers are Marion A. HIGGINS, Harry HIGGINS and Carl HIGGINS, all of whom reside in or near Yuma. The sisters are Mrs. Lulu GILMORE of Otis and Mrs. Minnie REYNOLDS of Delphos, Iowa.
