I did not see any other email address, so I will to ask you this question..
Several years ago, my dad, Barlow Higdon, bought the publication _"Colonial Higdons and Some of their Descendants". Do you know if this is still available for sale? Or who would I need to email to ask this question?
My family is from the Daniel line and his son John. And I did attend one of the meetings with my dad, Ford Barlow Higdon, in Vicksburg, MS years ago. I really enjoyed it.
And yes, I would like to have a copy. ..so please post.
Thank You..I appreciate your help.

Subject: William Higdon from Blue Ridge GA served WWII in Combat Engineer's BAT Pacific
My father Grady Hood served in the Army Combat Engineers in the Pacific and often mentioned a buddy of his name William Higdon of Blue Ridge GA.
He mentioned to my father that if he didn't have a good home to go back to after the war or if William Higdon was killed in the war that his family would be glad to accept him in Blue Ridge GA. I guess that they were good drinking buddies and friends.
Anyway my father passed away in 2007, neber being able to find Mr. William Higdon? Do you know of anyone that may have been named William Higdon that served in WWII approx 1944-1945-1946?
Probably was part of the occupation of Japan after surrender.
The following was sent in later with more information.

Janice an update on the William Higdon my father was friends with-- according to one story when my father left Japan--Mr. Higdon was in the military confinement, for having wrecked a weapons carrier on a trip into town without permission? At that time under occupation laws he was probably confined for a very short time. Thanks for any help on the matter.
If you have any information on William Higdon, please let me know so we can add it to the information we have on Higdons.
