Julia C. Collins--African American-d.1865-PA or NY
I am *not* a Collins descendant myself, but a historian seeking help in a project.I hope you don't mind my posting on this list.
I am seeking information on a Mrs. Julia C. Collins (maiden name unknown). Her husband may have been either John Collins or S. C. Collins.I don't have a place or date of birth, but she died in either Williamsport, PA or Owego (possibly Oswego?), NY, on November 25, 1865. Mrs. Collins was African American, affiliated with the African Methodist Episcopal Church.She was a teacher and wrote essays and a short novella for the AME Christian Recorder in 1864 and 1865.
Any information that may relate to Mrs. Collins would be very much appreciated.Thank you so much.
