Eliza "Elizabeth" Ann Collins Allred
Birth: Apr. 17, 1855
Hancock County
Mississippi, USA
Death: Jun. 12, 1927
Red River County
Texas, USA

Eliza Allred's only known photograph is this one showning her with her son, Sam. Her daughter Maud Bullard wrote that her parents both died and were buried in Avery, Texas; however, there are no vital records to support this. She and her husband Joseph R. Allred have no gravestones and cemetery records are not available to show where they were interred. [Info from great granddaughters].

"Elizabeth "Eliza" Ann Collins was born in Hancock County, Mississippi, the last of the eight children born to William M Collins and Margaret Ellison Pounds. She married Joseph Robert Allred on April 27, 1873, in Grayson County, Texas. They were the parents of nine children. She is called Elizabeth by the Collins/Collvins family, but is spoken of as Eliza by the Allred family. She used both names.

Elizabeth was the sister of my great grandfather. I was much to young to have known her, but I have often heard my dad and my aunts speak of her and her sister Georgiana Collins Megason. They all eventually lived in Red River County, Texas, along with and just down the road from the rest of the Collvins clan, in the years prior to their deaths. In 1920, she and her daughter Maud are living just three dwellings down from my grandfather, John William and next door to his sister Maggie Collvins Trim. [biography by Rita Collvins Mayfield]."
