Higginbotham and Binginhimer
Submitted by Jim Williams
The man standing on the right is my grandfather, Raymond Cay Higginbotham.
The man standing on the left is Edward A Binginhimer.
My grandfather served in the 4th Division and was nearing the front
on Armistice Day, Nov 11th. He stayed in Germany in the Army after the Armistice..
He was stationed on a farm. He said the only time he was warm during the winter is
when he slept against the cow. I do not know how he fell in with the IL group.
He was from Palatka, Florida. The picture appears to be a postcard, and was discovered 30
years after his death, in some documents that my grandmother had. We were cleaning out her
house after she died at almost 91. My grandfathers family goes back to revolutionary war
soldier, who is buried in Nassau count just north of Jacksonville.
We just had a Braddock-Higginbotham reunion this month!
I hope that this image can be used by the historical society!
