She was the widow of Samuel Higginbotham, formerly of Lake City. She was 82 years, of age and had lived at Island Grove for the past eight years.
Reverend Bolton, pastor of the Palatka Baptist church, conducted the funeral. Burial was made beside that of her husband in Oak Hill cemetery in Palatka.
Surviving are, one daughter, Mrs. A. B. Barnes of South Bay, Fla., and seven sons, B. A., of Cross City; J. C., of Hastings; W. H., of St. Augustine, G. H., M. S., and A. S., of Island Grove; and P. P. of Bunnell.
There are 38 grandchildren and 31 great-grandchildren.
