SAMUEL F. HIGENS

Samuel Francis Higens was born January 6, 1859, at Eddyville, Iowa and came with his parents to Warren county when he was but seven years of age, settling at Greenbush, near the present town of Spring Hill, where he has since resided.

He was united in marriage March 8, 1881, to Miss Bertha Orr, who with ten children survive him, one child have preceded him in death. The children are Mrs. Sadie Williams of Neiber, Wyoming; Mrs. Maude Bedwell of Valley Junction, Guy Higens of Des Moines, Frank of Tupper Creek Canada, Mrs. Opal Kepley of Emmetsburg, Harold Higens of Prole, Mrs. Hazel Garrison of Spring Hill, Mrs. Ethel DeVault of Norwalk, and Dean and Ralph at home. There are also 17 grandchildren.

He is also survived by one sister, Mrs. Emma Tilton of Ankeny, and two brothers, John of Greenfield and Thomas of Denver, Colorado.

Mr. Higens had labored under a sore affliction the most of his life, yet as long as health would permit, rendered his service to the world as a carpenter by trade. Having received a fall last September, he has since been failing in health. During which time he has been tenderly cared for by his wife and children, until he answered the call of the death angel Wednesday morning December 5, 1923, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Maude Bedwell at Valley Junction.

He was 64 years, 10 months and 29 days of age.

He has been a kind husband and father, a good neighbor and an upright citizen in the community in which he has spent most of his life.

Card of Thanks. – We wish to thank the friends and neighbors for the flowers. -- Mrs. S.F. Higens and children.

Mrs. William DeVault gave a most elegant and charming reception at her beautiful home on the Watauga on Thursday afternoon in honor of her son's bride, Mrs. A. Beverly DeVault. The hours were from three to four and from five to seven.

The guests were welcomed in the hall by Mrs. E. S. Kendrick, in a toilette of black lace over taffeta, and Miss Ella McNeil, who wore a dainty white lingerie with trimmings of baby Irish lace.

In the receiving line were Mrs. William V. DeVault, Mrs. A. Beverly DeVault, Mr. James Newby, a brother of the bride, and Mrs. Hugh Hill.

Mrs. William DeVault wore a gown of green messaline with trimmings of old rose and cream lace.

Mrs. Beverly DeVault wore her bridal gown of handsome white satin, hand-embroidered with pearl and diamond ornaments, and Mrs. Hugh Hill appeared in black spangled net.

The parlor, library and hall were decorated in golden rod, the color scheme being yellow and white, artistically entwined from the chandelier in the dining-room to the four corners of the table, was soft, white tulle, on which were innumerable small yellow hearts suspended from white ribbons. On the center of the table resting on an exquisite lace center-piece, was a bowl of bride's roses. Mrs. A. J. Tyler, who served in the dining-room, wore a black net dress over satin and was assisted by Misses Clara Reeves, Lois Reeves and Claude DeVault, who wore dresses of yellow crepe de chine with white and gold lace.

Miss Eula Lee Kendrick, in a costume of green messaline, ushered the guests into the dining-room and from there to the library, where coffee and hot chocolate were served by Mrs. Samuel Browder and Mrs. E. A. Long. Out in the spacious circle of the wide veranda, Mrs. James Martin and Mrs. Robert DeVault served grape punch from a bowl decorated with bunches of purple grapes and green foliage.

A charming little rustic picture was given out on the lawn under the spreading oaks. A table, from which was served luscious watermelons and sweet cider, was presided over by Mr. William DeVault, Judge A. J. Tyler, Capt. A. S. McNeil and Dr. F. B. Hannah.
