Jamie Collins got what she deserved Saturday night. I guess you can only get away with Vandalizing so many people's stuff before it finally catches up to you. I am glad to hear she got caught.

According to the diary of a young girl that made the initial trip, they walked next to the wagontrain from Ohio or Indiana. I remember it being quite a distance. As you probably know, the people walked next to the covered wagons to keep the animals from getting over worked. It was in our reunion book about 10 years back and made for very interesting reading. It had to do with meeting local Indian tribes and the desperation of hunting food. A buffalo was shot and they had to really stuff themselves prior to it spoiling.

They came from Indiana, but were in Kentucky before Indiana.

Basically all the Collins families in this area related to each other. Like it or not it traces back to 1700's .There were four brothers who originated in kentucky they left there and moved in different directions. Two of the brothers came to this area and settled with one later moving family to Ark.The first Collins here did settle out 14 hyway and some are still there, my mother was a Collins and Im proud of my family ties with the exception of like all families a few bad seeds

There ARE NOT different Collins families in this area, only different branches.("Oh, I'm not related to fill-in-the-blank; he/she lives on the other side of the Creek.") They are ALL related to each other, whether they like it or not, and, of course, they are not all bad (I know and like many of them, as I am sure others do). Anyone who calls someone bad depending on what one or more family members do/have done is an ass, anyway--get to know someone personally, and don't damn people for what they "might" be associated with.
collins and proud of it
