By Orson Walbridge, Dennis Byron Waite - Published 1887

A family by the name of Higgins settled on the hill east of the Christian church. I have forgotten the old gent's name, but will mention some of the sons: Dyer, Stephen, Abihugh, Edmond C., Jerry, others not now called to mind. They all left town in a short time except Stephen and Edmond C. Stephen remained here until his death long since. I will mention his sons: Stephen L. Higgins, Julius, Philo, and two daughters, Mrs. Myron Wheeler, who died here last summer, and Mrs. Sylvester Capron, who died a number of years since. E. C. Higgins kept the old hotel on the corners previous to its being burned in 1854. He went to Wellsville, Allegany Co., and died there long since. One of his daughters, Mrs. Harvey T. Grover, is still living here.

HENRY THOMAS HIGGINS As an architect Mr. Higgins has, for the last few years, taken an active part in the upbuilding of his home city of Dunkirk, much to the satisfaction of his fellow-citizens. He is never found lacking in public spirit, and is a well known figure in fraternal and social circles.
Henry Thomas Higgins was born Dec. 16, 1880, in Dunkirk, and is a son of Patrick J. and Mary (Quigley) Higgins. Mr. Higgins was one of the large contractors and builders of Dunkirk and, had he lived, would have been a very wealthy man. In 1903, however, together with two other members of the family, he was accidentally killed at a grade crossing.
The education of Henry Thomas Higgins was received in public schools and at St. Mary's High School, after which he entered Bryant & Stratton's Business College, Buffalo, and in due course graduated from that institution. He took an architectural course, American school, graduating in I913, and after serving a short time as draughtsman went into business for himself. In his chosen profession Mr. Higgins has been very successful. Despite the fact that, during the recent war, building to a great extent was suspended, he was employed to draw plans for many fine residences and has a considerable number now in course of preparation. His other work includes the following: Extensions and additions to the Niagara Silk Mills, owned by the Dunkirk Industrial and Building Company; the buildings at the Municipal Bathing Beach; the Drohen Avenue Theatre, a very fine structure of its kind, of the erection of which Mr. Higgins had complete supervision. The record of the early years of Mr. Higgins' professional career warrant the belief that his work, in the future, will make him widely known as an architect of talent and originality above the average. The political principles of Mr. Higgins are those of an independent Democrat. He affiliates with the Knights of Columbus, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, and the New York State Association of Architects, and is a member of St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church.
Mr. Higgins married, June 6, 1910, Bertha, daughter of Joseph and Mary (Koch) Koch, of Buffalo, and they are the parents of two children, both of whom are now attending school: Agnes and Charlotte.
