One of them did. My problem is figuring out which of the several persons named George Collins, all in the same time period and place, was the one who married Sallie Hodson, 19 Oct 1882. But prior to that time I cannot pin down which one he was, or who his parents were, since there are several George Collins' of about the same age in the vicinity.
So since I can't get out there to do the actual legwork I am currently hoping to at least rule out some of the "extras" and thereby narrow down the number of actual possibilities. The two most possibilities (as near as I can guess, but, oh boy, it's just a guess), is one born 1859, father John Collins. If anyone could for sure peg this fellow, even as a rule-out, it would be helpful. Another one born 1855 has been ruled out as he appears in the census same years as "my" George, but married to an Ina E.
So if anyone knows of anything that would point either to a specific George, or help rule a specific George out, I'd be evermore appreciative.
