Hi Ed - I learned that James was born Jan 9, 1797 and married Margaret sometime before 1830, as they had their first child, Stephen Richard Collins in 1930. James remarried in 1845, presumably because his wife died, but I haven't found any other details.

James' parents were John Collins (1765-1830) and Pauline "Polly" Lanphere (1771 - ?). I don't have any details on Margaret's parents, her birth or her death.

Were you able to find any additional information?
