Re: William Collins of Tx and brother Thomas
My husband's line comes from Mollie Butler Collins.I hope this is the same Mollie you have.I have been searching for this family (L.O.) for awhile.
We have a pocket watch that belonged to his grandfather (Mollie's grandson) that has the scratchings(?) "O.W. Collins, 10th Oct., 1823"
Also (scratched out) is "W.B. Johnson, Jan 1?, 1878"
Could O.W. be Lee Onidas' father (O. William??)
By the way, they are all from Collin Co (buried under Clear Lake!)
Look forward to hear from you!!
