Mr. Higginbotham was born in Nauvoo, Ill., March 24, 1848, and his parents, Mr. and Mrs. William T. Higginbotham, were staunch members of the Mormon church in the early days. While Mr. Higginbotham was still a young man, his parents and their four children, Nancy, Simon S., Elizabeth, Letitia and himself, removed to Burkes Garden, Va.
It was there that Nancy Higginbotham met and married David H. Peery, whom she converted to the Mormon faith. William E. Higginbotham and Mrs. David H. Peery died during the sojourn of the family in Burkes Garden. Shortly afterward, Mrs. Louise Ward Higginbotham, the elder, and her three children moved westward across the plains, arriving in this valley with the later pioneers who followed Brigham Young, in the year 1864. David H. Peery came with them and married his former wife's sister, Elizabeth Letitia, one year later.
During the pilgrimage of the party across the plains, frequent attacks by Indians were met and repulsed. Mr. Higginbotham displayed unusual courage and undertaking, earning the confidence and love of all. In 1868, after his arrival in Utah, Mr. Higginbotham married Elizabeth A. Rawson, Daughter of Daniel H. Rawson, one of the original band of pioneers, who distinguished himself as a member of the Mormon battalion. The marriage took place in Ogden, where the Higginbotham family had taken up residence after visiting in Provo and the small village of Cottonwood, respectively.
Mr. Higginbotham was a leading merchant of Ogden in the days when that city was changing from a small town to a ....city. He was associated closely with his brother-in-law, David H. Peery, one of the most prominent business men of Ogden, during his life. Mrs. Elizabeth Letitia Peery is the mother of Henry, Joseph, Horace, Harold Peery and Mrs. Louise Patterson of Chicago, Frank, Lewis, and Harmon Peery and two infant daughters, now dead.
