Announcement of the Marriage of Bruce Alvor Higgins (1877-1962) and Marietta Jessie Megquier (1875-1951) at Bangor, Maine, on 15 August 1912.
According to Dr. Higgins' obituary, he was a native of Ohio, who had moved with his family to Exeter, Maine, when young. After graduating from the Maine Medical School at Bowdoin College in the Class of 1901, he practiced in Corinth, Maine, for a time, before moving with his wife to Iola, Kansas.
From page 203 of the 1902 General Catalog of Bowdoin College and the Medical School of Maine
Dr. Higgins' father, Ebenezer A. Higgins, was the son of Ebenezer and Ruth (Smith) Higgins, natives of Bucksport, Maine, who moved to Exeter, Maine, and developed an extensive farm.
Marietta Jessie Megquier was the daughter of Charles F. Megquier and Marietta E. (Clark) Megquier of Corinth, Maine. It's possible that Dr. Higgins met Marietta while he was practicing medicine in Corinth, although they may have known each other before that, as Corinth and Exeter abut.
