Louis Davis Collins, James Alfred? Collins

Louis Davis Collins is the twin brother of my Francis Lee Collins. I only found Louis yesterday, so my research on him is incomplete, but here are the census records I have for him and for James Alfred Collins. I am uncertain as to how James is related to the family, whether he is a brother of Louis and Francis, or a cousin or uncle of theirs. I hope this helps someone's research, and may connects with some of the other families of Madison, Anderson and Brazos Counties.
