About Zaccheus Higgins

Added by E. C. Nickerson About my great Grandfather: In September, 1778, Maj. Zenas Winslow's regiment, the Second Barnstable County regiment of militia, was called into service on alarms at Bedford and Falmouth. In Lieut. Samuel Knowles's company were Zaccheus Higgins and Zaccheus Higgins, Jr., both privates, who served from Sept. 6 to 13, 1778.

Administration on estate of Zaccheus Higgins was granted to Thomas Higgins, March 22, 1817.


Children born at Eastham.

i. Jerusha, b. Nov. 19, 1750; married Feb. 4, 1776, Gowel Chase of Chatham.

ii. Mercy, b. June 7, 1752; married Sept. 18, 1777, Elisha Atwood of Harwich. (Rev. J. Bascom's Orleans Church record.)

iii. Richard, b. Aug. 31, 1754; perhaps married Aug. 19, 1777, Molly Smith of Chatham.

iv. Seth, b. June 1, 1756.

V. Mary, b. Feb. 27, 1759; married .

212. vi. Zaccheus, b. April 1, 1761; married Hannah Twining, vii. TuUy, b. Aug. 31, 1762.

213. viii. Knowles, b. Sept. 25, 1773; married Mary Rand.

Authorities: Eastham-Orleans Town and Church Records; Barnstable Probate Records, vol. xx, pp. 154-5, will of Paul Knowles. The name of the first wife of Zaccheus Higgins has been read "Mary Carsbury," by a careful student of Eastham records, Mr. Stanley W. Smith, but in another place the record is clearly "Mercy Crosby," so it seems probable that the former is a careless or fantastic spelling of the latter.
