Surnames: Collins, Sherrill, Burkhart
My gggrandfather, Joseph Henry Collins (1817-1865) m Sarah Sherrill, dau of George and Rutha Sherrill, 7 Dec 1843 in Haywood Co, NC. It is uncertain whether he was born in NC or TN. I am searching for his parents and siblings. This couple moved in about 1853 to Bradley Co, TN. Joseph Henry served for the Federal Army during the Civil War, was a POW in the Cahaba prison, and died in the Sultana tragedy on the Mississippi River.

Could Joseph Henry Collins be connected with the family of Robert Collins, b 4 Sep 1806 in Buncombe Co, NC, d 9 Apr 1862, for whom the Collins Gap and Mt. Collins in the Smoky Mountains are named for? At least they lived in approximately the same place and at approximately the same time. Who can help?
