He had been in failing health for several months and his death was not unexpected. Mr. Biggins was a son of Patrick and Bridget Hart Biggins and was born October 16, 1842, in Ireland. When he was a child he came with his parents to Pennsylvania and they later located in Washington county, near Claysville. Mr. Biggins was united in marriage with Miss Martha Hughes, of Rices Landing, and they resided in Waynesburg. Her death occurred June 6, 1919. Mr. Biggins followed the trade of a stonemason and tile setter. He did not give up his work until the past year. He was a devout member of the St. Anne Catholic church. Two children survive, Miss Alice Biggins, at home, and Edward Biggins, of Philadelphia. One son, John Biggins, and a daughter, Miss Anna Biggins, are deceased. He leaves one sister, Miss Bridget Biggins, of Washington, Pa. The funeral services will probably be held, Saturday morning, at 9 o'clock, in the St. Anne Catholic church, conducted by Rev. Father Gwyer. Interment in the St. Anne cemetery."
