Please bear with me ... I just sent this same post in reply to Paula's request for any information on Ida Collins Belcher.
After sending it, I thought that since this post contained some unrelated information I didn't want it buried in a 'sub-post area' where it might be missed.
I'm new at this ... and you WILL forgive me.
Anyway ... the "repeated post" (in all it's glory and magnificance(?!?).
And be kind ... we ARE Family. grrr...#;^
Hi, June!Bye, June!
As Sometimes Always,
Cussin' Terry =======================================
Paula (and All Cousins),
I have a few photographs of Ida Collins.
We were in touch back in 2000 then my computer went bonkers.I lost your email address.I hope you are reading this.
When we last chatted, you were wanting copies of my "COLLINS FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHS".I'd be happy to make you copies if you still want them.
One photograph is a really nice and old one.It was taken about 1914.It has "Alexander and Carrie Curnutte Collins" and ALL their Children.
Your Grandmother, Ida is there.My Grandfather, Robert is there.Heck, a bunch of folks Grandparents are there.I believe on this photo that Ida is just a baby, and Carrie is holding her on her lap.Ain't that sweet?You bet.
I also have photographs of most of Alex and Carrie's children later in life.The 1920's and 1930 and so on.
If needed, I also have a photograph of Alex's Parents, Joseph Franklin Collins and Elizabeth Porter Collins; and on the Curnutte-side of our Family, Benjamin Franklin Curnutte and Jemima Harris Vance Curnutte ... Carrie's Dad and Mom.
A few weeks ago, out of sheer desperation (I am always desperate, it seems), I typed-in "Jemima Curnutte" on Webcrawler.I don't know why I typed her name when I was looking for "Joseph Franklin Collins".Oh well ... and I came to a website that had a lot to do with Jemima's Family Line all the way back to the late 900's!
Bless those people that put that information online for lost souls like myself.
The line from Jemima Harris Vance Curnutte (how many people is that?) goes just a bit into the "HARRIS" Name and then goes on and on and on and on with "De CLAYTON".And that's the surname that goes back for over a thousand years.
Paula (and All), if you need any of the photographs or information I may have, just let me know.
