Hanes bywgraffyddol/gweinyddol: John Higgins (1894-) was the son of Margaret (b. 1851) and Robert Higgins (d. 1899), of Guilsfield, Montgomeryshire. In November 1914, he enlisted in the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, serving in France as a stretcher bearer. On 28 March 1917, he went missing in an action near Arras, Pas-de-Calais, France. Subsequent attempts by his mother and sister to trace him proved fruitless, and in 1918 he was officially presumed dead.
