Surnames: Heustis
Per the LDS records, Hannah Higbie married Benjamin Heustis in NY. They had a son Fleming Heustis, b. ca 1797, who was a long time resident of Madison County, IL, present in the 1840-1870 Census. He in turn had a son Fleming Higbie Heustis, b. ca. 1846. Apparently the naming tradition was very strong. The LDS shows a Fleming Higby (sic) b. 1787 in Half Moon, Saratoga County, NY, also the son of a Fleming Higby.

Hi Patrick,

Are you a descendant of Hannah Higbie?

I read somewhere that Fleming Higby married Sarah Varney. Is that what your records show?
Was Hannah a daughter of Fleming?

Pam,
No, I'm not a descendant. My wife is from Madison County, IL and is the gg-grandaughter of a Margaret Heustis of Fayette County who seems to be a third cousin to the the apparent Higby descendents.

The LDS shows Fleming (2) b. 1787 to be the son of Fleming (1) and a Mary. I'd be surprised if Hannah is not his sister (or his aunt) unless there were lots of Fleming Higbys around NY at the time. She started having her children aroung 1797, so was probably born ca. 1777.

The attached image from the Ancestry 1790 US Census images shows that Fleming Higby of Half Moon apparently had several daughters. There's a "bonus" Higby shown as well, perhaps Seth, living next door.

Pam,

Here's a lead to the Mary/Maria:

http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Fields/7754/delong801.htm...

12. Maria DeLong
Father: Elias DeLong
Mother: Sarah Tytsoort\Tietsoort
Born in 175_ Dutchess Co., NY

She married Flamen Higbie (or Hickbie), 22 May 1774 in Hopewell DR Church (Dutchess Co., NY). Born 22 Feb 1753 in Courtland Manor, NY.

They had the following children:

54 i. Phebe Higbie
55 ii. William Higbie
56 iii. Mary Higbie
57 iv. Anna Higbie
58 v. Fleming Higbie
59 vi. Jacob Higbie
60 vii. James Higbie
61 viii. Peter Higbie
62 ix. Benjamin Higbie
63 x. Abraham Higbie

I wonder if Anna could be Hannah?

Don't mean to be a pain. After further review, the DeLong Web site I referenced in my other reply shows Sarah T. as the wife of the elder Fleming. Perhaps this is your Sarah?

Also, it shows in the third generation the dates of marriages and births for the Higby family members. There is a several year gap between the marriage of Sarah and Fleming and the reported birth date for the first daughter shown. Combined with the Census image, which shows additional daughters, one could make a case for a Hannah being born around 1777.

Pam,

I foung this article:

HIGBIE, J. L., farmer, Liberty township, was born in Muskingum county July 14, 1820. His parents came from Duchess county, New York. Fleming Higbie, his father, married Sarah Bainey. About 1825 they came to Licking county, Ohio, remained there a short time, and subsequently lived in Clinton and Wayne townships. They have both deceased. They had a family of eleven children, six of whom are living.

J. L. Higbie worked at home until he was about seventeen years old, then worked at the carding business for some time. In 1842 he married Miss C. Ewalt, daughter of Richard Ewalt, a pioneer. He worked for four years on a rented farm, then purchased a tract of land in Liberty township. Mr. Higbie was possessed of little property when he started in life. He purchased an axe by first borrowing one from a friend, and with it earned enough to pay for a new axe-a novel way of starting life. He has succeeded in making for himself a very comfortable and beautiful home, and adding considerable to his first purchase. He has many friends. He was the father of five children, four of whom are living. He was a member of company A, One Hundred and Forty-second regiment Ohio National guard, and served his time of enlistment.
