Michael, I went to the genealogy library today and found the following:

From the vital records of the town of Barkhampstead, Ct.

Nathaniel Collins, b. 22 Sep 1749, m. Rachel Walling 6 Sep 1781.
Rachel wife of Nathaniel died 20 Dec 1828, age 74

Nathaniel & Rachel had the follwing children:
Asseneth b. 21 Nov 1799
John b. 27 Oct 1782 d. 10 Jun 1821
Nathaniel b. 20 Jun 1786
Rachel b. 18 Oct 1784
Sally b. 4 May 1788
Thomas b. 12 Nov 1790, d. 10 Sep 1793
Thomas b. 22 Feb 1794, d. 15 Apr 1794
Vina b. 3 Jan 1797
I was not able to locate Asahel.

From the Canaan vital records:
Joseph Beckley Jr. married Jane Buzzard, 5 Jan 1769.

Children of Joseph Beckley Jr. and Jane Buzzard:
Chloe b. 6 Sep 1780
David b. 29 Feb 1772
Jonathan b. 29 May 1775
Pede b. 29 Jan 1777

There was unfortunately no marriage record anywhere in the State of CT for Jonathan Beckley and Sally Collins.
Hopefully, I've at least given you some info you didn't already have.
Regards,
Bill
