Charles Collingwood,was born in England and came to America in 1801. Lydia (Moss) Collingwood,his wife, was born in the state of New York, she being a descendant of the Moss family that came over in the "Mayflower." After the marriage of Charles Collingwood and Lydia Moss,they lived in Tioga County, NY until about 1826, when they left for Canada. They lived in Ontario, Canada, for a couple of years and then travelled to Venango County, Pennsylvania where they lived from about 1829 until they moved to Decatur county, Indiana in about 1865, where they lived with their son, Joseph, and died. Mr. Collingwood was by trade a tailor; in England he made hoop skirts and dress stays. He was well educated and a well-read man and was school examiner when living in Pennsylvania. It is supposed that Admiral Collingwood, of England, who took part in the battle of Trafalgar, was a member of the family. Charles and Lydia Collingwood were the parents of nineteen children, fourteen boys and five girls.
