Hello Roy, I saw your posting on genforum and had to contact you. I am Lynn Hayes, great-grandaughter of Emily Collins Roberts, who was sister of your Mattie Collins Allen. I believe you are the Roy Godsey who exchanged information with Willard Collins. Willard and I worked on the Collins genealogy for a few years before his death. Willard provided me with the information that William D. Collins and wife, Elizabeth, were the parents of James E. Collins... have you found the parents of William D. and Elizabeth? I found some information on the other children of William D. and Elizabeth, but not much. I am also working on the Riggs/Guilliams/Hunter/Edgecomb/Edgecombe lines, as well as the Roberts line. I believe you have Roberts in you line as well. Have you made a connection between your Roberts and Wm. Daily Roberts, who was husband of Emily Collins? Do you have much on the direct line of Townley Riggs? I am anxious to hear from you, if you have the time to answer this. Will be glad to exchange what I have. All of these families are in my mother's line, but I found a strange connection between her line and my father's line, which is really weird. My dad's people were all in this county in the very early l800-s, and mama's dad (Emily's son) came in the early l900's from Tennessee, but it seems that your Willie Jehu Allen had a brother, Peter Allen, who came here right after the Civil War, and married into my father's line. Anyway, I hope to hear from you. Thanks, Lynn Hayes
