Hi Wendy. You're welcome! Now the Collins are a bit of a mystery. I will have to write to Old Swedes again and try to see if there is a connection. I show that Ruth Mendenhall that married William Hague is a sister to Betty Mendenhall that married a Henry Collins b 1750. Sarah Collins b 1752 married Williams brother John Hague. Now, the father of Ruth and Betty Mendenhall, Isaac Mendenhall, remarried after the death of his wife that bore him these children, to an Ann Collins whom one reference on Isaac suggests that she was a Collins widow when she married Isaac Mendenhall. It was suggested that her daughter from her first marriage, Jane Collins, is the one that married Isaac's son from his first wife, Joseph Mendenhall. Now, this Joseph was removed from the Quakers MM for marrying out of the faith,(to a Old Swedes Church Collins?). Could Ann Collins, the mother of Jane, be the sister-in-law of John, the father of my Sarah Collins that married John Hague? And is Henry Collins the brother of Sarah Collins?
Sorry, but you are right, there are a lot of Collins, Mendenhalls, and two Hagues from this same area and time. Needs checking if anyone is interested in checking out the Old Swedes records and the Kennett MM, Chester MM and Falls MM. Thanks for the note and if I get around to finding anything, I will be sure to post it.
