Re: Peter Collins (b 1774 Virginia, d 1846 Tenn)
My g.g.g.granddaddy was John H. Collins Jr.so his daddy was John H. Collins. My John Jr. family moved to Tn. from Va. They had children born in Va. the last one born in Va. was abt. 1811 and the first one born in Tn. was abt.1813. My John Jr. and familylived and died in Carroll Co. Tn. I don't have any info. on John Sr. I don't know if he moved to Tn. or stayed and died in Va. I think John Jr.and family got to Carroll Co. before 1830. I beleave they lived somewhere in Tn. before getting to Carroll Co. Carroll and Henderson Co. join each other . My Collins Family Farm was very close to the Henderson Co. line. Do you think your Peter b.1774 could have been a bro. to my John Jr. b. abt 1785 . My g.g.granddad (son of John Jr.) was Daniel Collins and Daniel had a son named Peter !
