3208 Will Higgs operated and worked at newspapers throughout Arkansas and Oklahoma. Working as a printer in Texarkana in 1875, he moved to DeQueen, AR to publish the DeQueen Democrat Record. He served newspapers in Alma, AR and Van Buren, AR before moving to Idabel, OK in 1911 to work at the Idabel Democrat Record. He died of pneumonia after an illness of about two weeks. According to initial reports of his death, his remains were to be shipped to Boyce, TX. The rationale for this report is unknown. Perhaps he had as yet undiscovered family in that area. He was not from that area and he had no siblings or known family there or any connection at all to the area. But, since this was reported, it ought to be followed up to find out of there is a connection.
