Subject: [Irish in Chicago] Higgins, Co.Mayo to Chicago
Date: Fri, 5 Mar 2004 05:29:23 +1300


I would like to ask if anyone has an interest in this Higgins family. My interest is due to the 2nd marriage of John Higgins to
Winifred Solon as we are planning a reunion in Wisconsin in 2005 and would naturally like the opportunity to make contact with the
descendants of this couple, to offer them the chance to attend the reunion.

Winifred Solon was 1 of 14 children of Martin Solon & Mary McGlynn, Balla, Co Mayo, Ireland, Winifred and 11 of her siblings
emigrated to the USA, my husband's great grandfather John came to NZ, and Catherine went to England.
