[NOTES from copier]
The above page is in several different handwritings, and some of it cannot be read, and some is very difficult to read. The tombstone inscription for Anna wife of Stephen England says she was born Sept. 1, 1772. Some of the family say Lucy England (Cline) was born February the 13, 1797. Her tombstone says she died June 5, 1875. Sitha Englandís tombstone says she died Sept. 15, 1830 age 31 yr 5 mo. Jesse Englandís tombstone says he was born in 1815.

NOTES FROM THE COPIER
William Higgins was married three times. Rosanna Megary above was his second wife. Elisabeth (Elizabeth) above was by Williamís first wife, who was Elizabeth Downing. She died. I believe Rosanna born December 16, 1816 belonged to Rosanna Megary Higgins, but the Bible very clearly says February and December 1816, so I wonder if they have the months reversed. Lousanna above is Louisianna Higgins.
