Source 1: Will of father-in-law John Warner proved 4 December 1679;

Source 2: Genealogical Dictionary of Early Settlers of New England by Savage; William, Farmington, whose name is usually Higason, or Higgison, married Sarah, daughtr of John Warner, had there (at Farmington) baptized Margaret, Sarah, Elizabeth 17 May 1691, and Mary 10 January 1692; William was proprietor in 1673; He left no sons nor is the date or place of his death known. Either his daughter Sarah or his daughter Mary married Clark Carrington;

Source 3: Farmington, Conn, Land Records: Vol. 7 pg: 256: (as printed in The American Genealogist pg: 110:) 7 April 1740: Edward Neale and Margarett his wife of Farmington sold to William Burnham, Sr., of Kensington in Farmington, land laid out in Right of father William Higason deceased. viz. 1/4 of said lot, also land laid out in Right of granfather John Warner Senior.; (Margaret is the daughter of William Higgison and Sarah Warner and she married Edward Neale;)

The children Elizabeth & Mary may belong to a (2) wife for William Higginson; Their christening dates do not match well with the estimated birth and marriage dates for William & his wife Sarah Warner; This leads me to suggest that Sarah Warner died and he married again; His second wife would be the mother of child 3 & 4.
