Hunterdon County Descendants of Jediah Higgins & Hannah Stout
I have designated as the first Higgins generation the family of Jediah Higgins (born 1691 in Piscataway, Middlesex County, NJ) and Hannah Stout (born 1694 in Middletown, Monmouth County). Many of the eight children of Jediah and Hannah Higgins moved to Hunterdon. However, Jediah and Hannah both died in Kingston, Middlesex County, Jediah in 1772 and Hannah in 1779.
