Re: Collins/O'Brien/Heale(Haley)

In Reply to: Collins/O'Brien/Heale(Haley) by Lynette Richey of 94936

Lynette,on rootsireland they have the following;

birth Jeremiah Collins
2 in co Cork 1809,1819

birth Catherine O'Brien
198 between 1805-1815(because O'Brien is one of the most common surnames you would need something more to narrow this down)

birth Timothy Collins
2 in co Cork 1838,1843

birth Cornelius Collins
2 in co Cork 1860,1863
(in the case of both sons it may be that the first child died young and they used the name on a second child which was common)

Between 1825-1865 there are 99 children born in county Cork whose father was Jeremiah Collins and of those 22 of the children had a mother with the first name of Catherine so there are very likely more siblings.

I also looked at marriages between 1820-1840 for Jeremiah Collins and found 9;
co Cork 1828,1830,1835,1838,1839,1840
co Limerick 1827,1832
co Kildare 1839
none of these had the spouse of Catherine O'Brien.However,if a name is spelt differently or a nickname or other forename is used it won't come up.

On I found this death cert:
Tim B Collins
died 24 Dec 1924 in Hartland,McHenry,Illinois
age 82
birthdate;4 May 1842
father;Jerima Collins
born in Ireland occupation:farmer
mother;Katheren O'Brien
born in Ireland
burial took place 27 Dec 1924

I could not locate a death cert for Jeremiah nor Catherine in Illinois or Cornelius in South Dakota.
also,found a listing in 1865 Illinois State census;
Jeremiah Collins
there are 2 white males and 3 white females in household meaning the family arrived prior to 1865.I would check the site as it contains passenger lists for New York prior to 1892 when Ellis Island opened.

I would contact the following to request copies of the death certs for Illinois; maintain a list of county clerks who hold vital records prior to 1916.The clerks also maintain copies of marriages and you can probably find Timothy and Cornelius there.
For Cornelius' death cert contact which deals with South Dakota records.

One other thing to try is to see if perhaps Jeremiah Collins was naturalized in Illinois.I came across several Jeremiahs who were naturalized in Illinois so if there is a National Archives branch near you look at their naturalisation records to see if perhaps he was.These records can give some good info.Hope this helps,Kim
