My grandfather was the youngest son of James Madison Collins, his sister's name was Mary and she was the youngest daughter of James Madison. James Madison was born in Letcher Co. Kentucky, December 12, 1827 and died in 1915. His parents were Rev. James Collins/ Elizabeth Lewis. James Madison married Ruth Hale ( dauther of Archelius Dickerson and Elizabeth Daugherty Hale from Scott County, Virginia.)
There children were , Millard, Frank, Sarah, Dr. John, Edith, Easther, William, Emmett, Mary and Pryor Mason. I know this is an old posting, so I am not sure if you received any answers before this, or if this is the correct James Madison Collins. My uncle, Robert Leroy Collins ( (son of Pryor Mason)and nephew to Aunt Mary, did extensive research of this line of Collins. If this is the correct line I would be happy to send you additional info.
