I am trying to trace back from my grandmother Kathleen Higgins whose father is James listed below:
James is listed as nearest relative on the immigration papers of his daughter Kathleen in 1919. We know that he remarried after Madeline and Kathleen were born. We know that his first wife was married prior to marrying him. There are a total of nine children between the three marriages. We assume that he was about 60 when he died making him born about 1880, the problem with this theory is that his step son Mike Kearns was born in 1888 . Mike Kearns is the oldest of the Children with Nora being the youngest and she was born in 1935.

That is a huge age gap. Nora was definetely born in 1935 and is the daughter of James Higgins. Mike Kearns Date of Birth could be
wrong but we know that he was about ten- fifteen years older than
Kathleen who was born in 1904. Nora still ives in Gallway and is
married with Five Children and several grandchildren. I have to do
some extensive research in the Gallway area now that I am at a
blockade in Belfast research.
