Obviously you already know the only Collins in Taylor COunty for the 1880 census was a William age 51 born in GA married to a M. H. age 30 born Al (who was previously married to a Wheeler and Drought).
I went through the marriage index for Aug 1878- Nov 1891 (Book 1)- the following Collins were married in Taylor Coun ty:
M. W. Collins md Mrs Mrs. Martha Drought 2 Oct 1879 (see above census)

J. P. Simmons md Miss I. U. Collins 8 Jul 1883

W. M. Collins md Mrs. Mattie Edwards 17 May 1885

R. S. Tuttle md Mrs. Alice Collins License 4 Aug 1885 (not filled in- so would assume did not actually marry)

I. N. Collins md Miss J. E. Butts 24 Aug 1885
performed by J. E. Cooper, J.P {in case you dont have a copy}

James C. Collins md Miss U. J. Willis 15 Sep 1887

Went through the early Taylor County Cemetery records- at the Masonic Cemetery-
J. F. Collins Nov 11, 1888
Walter M. Collins
Eliza C. Collins
all bought lots same date
Aug 5, 1891 Inf of Collins City Cem
Mar 3, 1891 Inf of J. F. & L Collins
Sep 25,1896 Inf of Chas & June Collins

That was all I could find in that time period for any Collins.
Hope it helps some.
