NEED HELP/Collins, Diamond,Godfrey, & Eastman families
Posted by: sue (ID *****8754) Date: October 08, 2005 at 18:47:58
  of 1003

I have found some marriages in Oakland, MI for the folling people, and really need some help. One, John Collins MAY BE my gggrandfather, who I have hunted for nearly 20 years.

Elizabeth Collins
Charles E. Eastmen married 20 Oct 1846

Margaret Collins
Nathaniel Diamond married 13 May 1842

Huldah Collins
Warren H. Godfrey married 29 Sept 1841

John Collins
Experience Gates married 26 Feb 1834

I found these on the LDS site, and by the batch number, they all married at the same place. Wondering if the Collins' could have been sibblings.

What I really need, is info on John Collins and Experience Gates. They may be my gggrandparents, and parents of my ggrandfather William Collins, who married Mary Ann Felstead in Vanderburgh Co. IN in 1860. John and Experience and William, and another child, Experience were in IN by the census time 1850.

Any help greatly appreciated,
