Re: Susan E. Roper COLLINS (b abt 1838 - GA)

In Reply to: Re: Susan E. Roper COLLINS (b abt 1838 - GA) by William Alexander Roper, Jr. of 1882

Most of what you sent me I already have a record of. I may be able to fill in a few blanks for you though. Susan Elizabeth Roper was my great great grandmother. She married Nathaniel Valentine Collins on 10/30/1862 in Dawson Co, GA. Caroline Collins was my great grandmother, but her real name is Dialpha Caroline Collins. She married William Elmer Stahl and their son John Henry Stahl was my grandfather.

I have a date of November 25, 1872 for the birth of Edward Thorton Collins in Fort Smith, Arkansas. He married a woman named Minnie Hisle. I have a photo on my ancestry.com site that has Edward Thorton, Minnie, Dialpha Caroline Collins and other family members as well.

Mary Jane Collins died Jan. 1, 1930 in Cabiness, OK. She apparently was married twice. After her death, apparently my grandfather's oldest sister, Susie married him. So I guess she married her uncle by marriage? Kinda creepy...

After Susan E. Roper Collins died, Nathaniel Collins married Elizabeth Cole. He died in OK in 1914.

I actually acquired a copy of Nathaniel Collins' will and I also have one for Dialpha Caroline Collins.

Dialpha Caroline Collins Stahl died of TB in OK Aug. 28, 1926. I also have a copy of her funeral record. She is buried in an unmarked grave at Sunnylane Cemetery, OK City.

I have wondered if Susan E. Roper died during childbirth? The next census record I have found with Nathaniel Collins finds him living in OK with his new wife Elizabeth Cole.

I'm not sure how much info you are wanting on these people, but if there is anything else I can help you with, just let me know.

Thanks!
