Hannah Earle (Collins) MacMunn is the daughter of Dr. John Collins and Elizabeth (Perkins) Collins. On May 10, 1855, she married Arthur Nicholson MacMunn in Ithaca, New York. About 1857, the couple moved to Scotland County, Missouri, where they made their home for the rest of their lives. The couple had seven children, four boys and three girls. One son, Edward, died when he was a year old. Raised as a Quaker, she was of strong character. Although she never received formal training as a physician, she was often called upon to care for her family and many of her neighbors. She loved flowers and was an accomplished artist. Many of her large watercolors hung in their home. (Source: "Collins Family History" authored by Hannah's youngest daughter, "Aunt Fannie" Nicholson MacMunn, January 1936.)

Obituary
McMunn, Hannah Earle (Collins) - 1904
Hannah Earle Collins was the youngest daughter of Dr. John Collins and was born in Hector, Tompkins County, New York, September 5, 1829, and passed to her eternal rest from her home in Memphis, Mo., April 30, 1904, at the age of 74 years, 7 months and 5 days. In early life she was a member of the Society of Friends or Quakers and grew to womanhood in that faith. May 10, 1855, she united in marriage with Arthur McMunn, of New York, and the following year they came west and settled in Scotland County, Mo., where she has since resided. Her husband passed away some eight years ago. Not finding an organization of the church of her youth in Missouri she united with the Methodist Episcopal Church and was an active member to the time of her decease. She had been somewhat feeble during the winter but able to do her work within a few days of her death, which was caused by an abscess of the lung. She expressed her complete readiness to go and was even anxious for the end to come. Mrs. McMunn was a good woman, a devoted mother and leaves two sons and four daughters with a host of friends to mourn her departure.
