of Samuel and Betsey (Comwell) Higgins. When a young
man he went to Michigan and there learned the miller's
trade. He afterwards returned to Gainesville, N. Y., and
engaged in farming. He then had an interest in the Gaines-
ville Mills, grist and sawmill, the firm being known as
Hickey & Brainerd. By his honest and upright dealing
lie gained the confidence and esteem of all with whom he
had intercourse. He was a member of the Methodist Epis-
copal Church, and was a Christian among the few who lived
up to what he professed and believed right. He was a
member of the A. 0. U. W. and of the E. A. U., and of the
Davis Division, S. of P. His loss will be sadly felt in each
of these organizations, in all of which he held prominent
and important offices as long as health permitted. He
served as supervisor and held other town offices. He was
superintendent of the Sabbath School. He was ever ready
for the upbuilding of every religious, temperance, and
moral work. His mission on earth was to do good, and
he was never known to speak ill of any person. He was
an affectionate and kind husband and father, and a person
of whom no man spoke ill, and though he was called after
having traveled life's pathway over, and while the " shadows
still were falling toward the west," his mission on earth was
well done and we trust our loss is his eternal gain. While
on his way to Colorado for the benefit of his health, he
stopped in Quincy, 111., where he d. April 10, 1888. His
remains were brought back to Gainesville for interment.

in Gainesville, T^. Y., dau. of John and Mary (Parker)
Bryant. He left his home when a boy and sought his for-
tune in the west, settling near Silver City, Owyhee Co.,
Idaho Ter. He returned to Xew York in 1870.
The following is from the Silver City paper: "When about
21 yrs. of age, he came across the plains to California as a
teamster with the expedition of General Hancock. Arriv-
ing in California, he resided awhile in Marysville, he then
took the Idaho gold fever and in 1862, or '63, came to Lew-
iston, where he engaged in placer mining until the gold
fields of the Owyhee country were discovered, when he left
that place and arrived in Silver City in 1863, with E. H.
Tregaskis, stopping at Boonville, where he was engaged as
a clerk for a short time. He subsequently came to this
cit}^, where, in 1864, he opened a livery stable, which he
conducted aliout one year, when he sold and took iip a ranch
in Pleasant Valley in company with a man named Killings-
worth, and became a farmer. The Indians being on the
war path at that time prevented their doing much farming
and in the course of a couple of years, Killingsworth sold
out to Mr. S. ]Sr. Smith, who, in company with Mr. Brain-
erd, did a. good business, ilr. Smith subsequently sold his
interest in the ranch to him."
He was a man of more than average intelligence, honest and
industrious. He made many friends, who were always
cordially welcomed to his home. His ranch contained a
good house, barn, and corrals, well stocked with several
hundred horses and cattle.
He was buried in the Masonic Cemetery at Hot Springs, Ark.,
he having been a Mason in good standing at the time of his

1 death.

His wife so mourned his death, and overcome with the care
and responsibility of the large ranch, in a fit of despon-
dency and grief, she took her life. She was universally be-
loved by all her friends. The Masonic fraternity, of which
her husband was a memljer, took charge of the remains and
laid them by the side of her husband.
