John Collins 1870 Boyd/Floyd/Knott
Posted by: linda fifield (ID *****3830) Date: August 03, 2010 at 15:02:53
  of 405

I am seeking ANY lead into the family of John W.and Mary Collins. (And their son John Decousey Collins born 1870)
I find them first on the 1880 Boyd co. census at White Sulphur Springs precinct #4. Household number 40

John W. born 1834 Husband (age 46) mining ore
Mary born 1841 wife (age 39)
John D. born abt. 1870 (my great grandfather)
Wm S.(William ?) born 1873
Kenne P. born 1877
Elizabeth born 1879

I have been told the following about Mary and the children:
Mary's surname was Conley and she had a 1/2 brother John Mayo (Floyd Co)

Kenne P. (daughter) was burned to death on a steamboat on the Kentucky river.

I know that John D. (my great grandfather) came to Floyd Co. Weeksbury and was married to Sarah Johnson and Susannah Elizabeth Johnson. He also was married maybe 2 other times. His middle name was Decoursey. His last son was named Veda (Ernest)who died in 1942 and he was buried at Flax Patch Cemetery near the Carr Creek Lake in Knott Co.

Elizabeth lived for a time in Weeksbury Floyd Co. KY

After years of searching I cannot make any connections back for this family. Any help appreciated.
