"HIGGINS--DEATH OF CAPTAIN EDWARD HIGGINS--Captain Edward HIGGINS, late Agent of the Pacific Mail Steamship Company, died yesterday afternoon at The Grand Hotel. Captain HIGGINS was a native of Norfolk, Virginia, was educated for the Navy and passed the necessary examination to enter the Navy as midshipman. He served in the Navy during the Mexican War, and at it's close, came to California, being the second in command when the United States took possession of Monterey in 1847. After that, he went to New York and entered the merchant marine, and was placed in command of large ships plying between New York and foreign ports. At one time, he was master of the steamer, Vanderbilt, now the ship, Three Brothers, and made the quickest trip on record on her between New York and Havre,the American residents at the latter port presenting him with a service of silver plate. At the beginning of the war, he cast his lot with the Confederate Navy and obtained quite high position. At one time he was in command of the blockade runners, made good his escape to New Orleans and went to Mobile. That city was placed for a time under martial law by the Confederacy and he was placed in command of the land and naval forces. Soon after the close of the war, he returned to New York and found employment with an insurance company. About two years ago on the recommendation of ship owners in whose employ he had been, he was appointed Agent of the Pacific Mail Company at this port, which position he held for a number of months. Latterly, he has been engaged in business as a stock broker. He was about 53 years of age, and leaves a wife and brother in this city." Source: Daily Alta California, 1 February 1875.

"HIXON--Dispatch from San Francisco, March 28 -- This evening the coroner's jury found a verdict in the case of O.M. HIXON, aged 36, and a native of Canada, to the effect that he came to his death from narcotic poison, viz. morphine. Prof. HOWDEN testified that he had analyzed a sample of the chloral hydrate and found no morphine in it. The case has made considerable noise, from the fact that a direct charge had been made by a daily paper to the effect that his death was caused by a dose of chloral hydrate."
