Birth: c. 1837
Death: Feb. 17, 1864

Civil War Confederate Sailor. As a Seaman, he was one of 8 members of the "H.L. Hunley", the Confederate submarine that was the first submarine in history to sink an enemy ship. On February 17, 1864, the crewmen of the Hunley successfully sank the Union warship "USS Housatonic", but were never heard from after that. The 8 men were buried in Magnolia Cemetery on April 17, 2004 after the "Hunley" was raised. It is still uncertain why the Hunley sank. Collins was from Virginia. (bio by: Heather from VA)
