Shared note

Helen Higus was born on 28 Feb 1906. Her parents were 45-year-old William and 42-year-old Carrie [Clark] Higus. William's birthplace was Cedar Rapids, Iowa, while Carrie's was Maine. William was an interior painter and Carrie was a housewife. The doctor attending Helen's birth was H A Johnson.

In the 1910 US Federal Census for Minneapolis, Hennepin, Minnesota, 49-year-old Iowa-born William Higus and his 46-year-old wife Carrie [Clark] Higus have been married eight years. Carrie is recorded as having borne no children. Also in this household is their "adopted" daughter, 4-year-old Minnesota-born Helen. The family is living in a house at 2937-17th Avenue South that William owns free of mortgage. William is a painter who "works out"; he has had no months out of work in the past year. The adults are literate and speak English. William's parents were born in Iowa; Carrie's parents were born in Maine; Helen's parents were born in Iowa [sic]. This reference to Helen as adopted is contradicted by her birth certificate which gives her parents as William and Carrie Higus.
