John Higgins

John Higgins (1875-1962), son of Thomas and Catherine McKenna Higgins, grandson of Thomas and Margaret Lannon Higgins, was born at Brothertown, Calumet County, Wisconsin. He moved to Montana early in the 20th Century and in 1930 was a stock rancher in Powder River County.  Here he is shown with hides of wolves he has shot and two black cats. Powder River County, named for the gunpowder color of the river banks, is  today largely rangeland. John seems not to have married.
