HIGERAS, Sam (?-?), island fisherman who, according to Pier Gherini [1966]: “was another rugged individual. Sam made his camp at San Pedro Point on the eastern tip of the island. In those days, there was an unwritten law that each camp had its own lobster grounds. Francis Gherini recalled: “At Hungryman's Gulch (near Pedro Point) there was a fisherman named Sam Higeras. All these fishermen lived alone except Sam. He had an African-American lady friend with him.”
