[AL] Collins/Johnson-Dallas County
Researching great-great grandparents, Nelson Collins & Nancy Johnson Collins. I have located Nelson & Nancy in the 1870 Census living in the Pine Flats Census Beat in Selma, Dallas County, Alabama. Nelson & Nancy were the parents of Charlotte Collins & Thomas B. Collins (aka Tom). There may have been another son by the name of Aesa. There was also a Haywood Collins living in the household and Haywood could have been a brother to Nelson Collins, however, the relationship is not indicated. Thomas B. Collins married Emma Webster. Tom & Emma resided in the Pine Flats area of Selma, Dallas County, Alabama. Tom and Emma were the parents of Ernest W. Collins, Harbonyou (aka Harbernia)Collins, Willie Collins, Thomas Collins, Jr., Carrie Collins, Eddie W. Collins (aka Pete), Clarence W. Collins, Annie and Mary Magdeline (aka Maggie). After the death of Emma Collins, Thomas Sr. married Emily Holifield Collins. Tom and Emily were the parents of twin sons, James and John Collins. Emily had a daughter by the name of Lula from a previous marriage. Harbonyou Collins married Willie Griffin, Willie Collins married Sam Ross, Thomas Jr. married Mary Bohanon, Carrie Collins married Henry Graham, Maggie Collins married Henry Campbell and later married John Harris, Annie Collins married Walter Williams. Charlotte Collins married Henry Cleveland and they were the parents to James Cleveland and Eugenia Cleveland. Charlotte Cleveland is a widow in the 1870 Census. Is anyone else researching this line?
