Census Lookups/COLLINS Surname
Posted by: Sharon Beseler (ID *****7076) Date: May 31, 2002 at 14:59:14

Does anyone have access to census records 1830-1860 timeframe? If so I am researching the Morris
(or Maurice) COLLINS family. Father: Morris, Mother: Mary, Son: Morris. I don't know if there are others.

I have two pieces of information that lead me back to Wayne Co. Ohio:

1. Morris COLLINS is listed in the Wayne Co. Ohio Abstracts of Naturalization Records 1812-1903
Place: Ohio
Year: 1856
Primary Immigrant: Morris Collins
Permanent entry number: 9594916
Accession Number: 1167116
Source Publication Code: 9626.1
Source Publication page number: 33

(Does anyone know where I can get a copy of this or some other immigration records?)

2. Short bio listed in History of Steele and Waseca Counties, (Minnesota) An Album of History and Biography pub.
1887 Waseca, Minnesota stated that:
"Maurice S. Collins, the proprietor of the Arcade hotel, was b. in Wayne Co. Ohio, in 1832. When he
was some 15 years of age he came to Milwaukee, WI, with his parents..."

3. Could be wrong, but I don't believe that Morris S. Collins was born in Wayne Co. Ohio. Other records indicate that he was
born in County Limerick, Ireland and came to America when he was young. I believe his father's name
was also Morris (or Maurice) Collins. I think it more likely they came in the time frame 1845-1855.

I would appreciate any help you are able to give.
