Una, my aunt and I found Nancy Collins on several census records:
1860 Ross County, Ohio, Harrison TWP, page 6 stamped 125B, Line 4 Orrin Collinsage 29laborerborn Ohio Aliceage 28Ohio Nancyage 5Ohio Elizabethage 3Ohio
1870 Ross County, Ohio, Harrison TWP, page 693B, Line 8 Orrin Collinsage 40laborerborn Ohio Aliceage 40England Nancyage 15Ohio Elizabeth A.age 12Ohio Columbusage 10Ohio Maryage 10Ohio Cynthiaage 5Ohio Johnage 2Ohio

1880 Ross County, Ohio, Liberty TWP, page 291C George W. Aultage 22born Ohio Elizabeth (Collins) age 22Ohio
This appears to be the same family you are referring to in your previous message.
Nancy married Lorenzo Dow Phillips and they had 3 children: Jessie Louise Phillips (my g-grandma), Orrin Phillips and _____- the third name has escaped me. Sorry
Your message mentions Henry Frank as a son of Orrin & Alice (Osborne) Collins which I haven't seen.Name not on above censuses with the family- Do you know if Henry was possibly living with another relative at any point?I am very interested in hearing more from you to see we can solve the discrepancy in the children- maybe we are both missing one.
