1) Incestuous marriage?||
The noted genealogist Donald Lines Jacobus put out a call to produce evidence supporting Hannah Rogers, was the second wife of Jonathan Higgins. The first wife was Elizabeth Rogers, sister of Hannah. Jacobus wrote there was a prejudice against marriage to a deceased wife's sister in early New England. Court cases have been found where such marriages were set aside as illegal and incestuous (TAG 41:Jan 1965:29).
Evidence for the second wife was produced by Anne Borden Harding and published in 1969. Indeed, the Puritan court did not take kindly to the relationship and Jonathan Higgins was fined for committing fornication with his wife's sister after his wife's death (NEHGR 123:Apr 1969:147-148).

 Dorothy, as a young girl was very bright and talented in music and art. But she had a difficult life as an adult. Helen paid for her to go to Business School, but she couldn't keep a job. She went to Nursing School but couldn't get along with the patients. She tried raising chickens, but that didn't go well either. She lived with her parents until they died. After that she worked in a Laundromat for a while and then retired in Rifle, Colorado. Helen visited her there several times and reported her little house was filled with boxes and piles of stuff to the point that only aisles remained. She seemed to suffer from a personality disorder that didn't show up until she was grown. We have a painting Dorothy did of the Yuccas in New Mexico. When Dawne was little, Dorothy sewed many cute clothes for her including a hand-smocked dress that was saved and worn again by Dawne's daughters.
 This is a series of 8 letters written between January 1976 and July 1978 describing various aspects of life when Dorothy was a young girl. Included here are excerpts.

Andrew and Matilda's second son, Samuel D. White, fought in the Civil War. He was a private with Company D of the 45th Illinois Infantry. He served from Nov 20, 1861 to Dec 30, 1864.
Soon after the War ended Samuel and his brother Matthew married two local girls of French parentage who lived next door to one another. They may have been related. Samuel married Josephine Mougin in September of 1865 and Matthew married Harriet Bonhotal in October 1865. Samuel and Josephine appear to have lived and farmed on the land that had belonged to his father, Andrew. On the 1870 census many neighbors are the same as Andrew's were in 1860. By 1880 though he is still in Elizabeth Township, the neighbors are different so I don't know if he or they have moved. Samuel and Josephine had 16 children but they didn't have very good luck with their children as on the 1910 census Josephine says she has given birth to sixteen children but only 7 are still living. I think there may have been diabetes in that family. The 1910 census also says Samuel is blind. He and Josephine lived out their lives near the place of his birth. Samuel died in 1912 and Josephine in 1914. There are buried together in the Greenwood Cemetery in Galena. Many of their decendants continued to live and farm in the Jo Daviess county. One daughter and one granddaughter married railroad engineers, Lizzie Shellhorne and Myrtle Kish. The Kishes lived in St. Paul, Minnesota. Samuel and Josephine may have had twins. There were twins among Samuel's descendants. Vernon and Vera Sanderson were twin grandchildren of Sam's daughter Emma. Matilda was thought to have had two sets of twins. Daughter Hattie had identical twins, Helen and Harriet Knight.
1860 Census shows Samuel, age 19, working as a farm hand. He is on the census twice.
1870 Samuel is living on the family farm which is now worth $4000 and has Personal estate of 1200.
Parents are not shown in Census.
Besides his wife and 2 children, it looks like his sister Martha and her three children are living with them.
Also listed is Frank Shellborne, age 14, farmhand. Frank's eventual son, William marries Samuel's future daughter Josephine, and then his daughter Lizzie after Josephine died.
Samuel D. White from Illinois is listed for the Civil War - Co.D 45th Illinois Infantry - Private
(Civil War record also listed on tombstone)
1900 census - S.D. and Josephine White are living at 205 Bon Thilier (?) in Galena. They have 5 children and one grandchild living with them.
1910 Census indicates Samuel is blind.
per Diane Miller - Phone 24 Apr 2008 - Sam lost one eye during the Civil War.
Middle name, David, is from Diane Miller Email of 23Apr 2008.
