Higgs LINE

Following their parents deaths it appears Elsie and Kathleen Shepherd were "adopted" abt 1897 by Aunt Minnie Beard about 1897
Her husband William norman Higgs family seem to have been very prosperous. did Alice Shepherd and her 2 daughters stay in the family home following her husbands death in 1894 or ha she been staying with her sister Minnie

Kathleen is thought to have been "adopted by "bird" family a solicitor!!!!]
Is this not more probable as Beard as 2 of her mothers sibling are solicitors and a 3rd a barrister?
