RE: Harriet F Cahill Smith, Memorial # 60242069
Hi there,
They just got that tombstone posted on this website but I have it fixed now. Thanks for let me know about this. Are you related to this line of the Smith's? Harriet is a 4th Great-Aunt to me.
Have a great day,
Maureen LaMothe

RE: Jesse Lena Smith Collins
Here is what I have found:

Father: Charles E Smith
B: 1842 in Missouri, United States
D: 1864 in St Louis, Missouri

Mother: Sarah Jane McCune
Birth 19 Apr 1842 in Jefferson, Missouri, United States
Death 1 Jan 1923 in Griggsville, Pike County, Illinois

Marriage to John Marshall Collins (he had 4 wives - she was the last one - on 26 Feb 1893. Age: 30 in Missouri City, Fort Bend, Texas

1900 census
Age: 38
Box Township (excl. El Dorado Springs city), Cedar, Missouri

Death on 20 Aug 1909, Age: 46 in Bartlesville, Osage, Oklahoma.

John Marshall Collins - husband
1836 1909

Edward Collins - son
1894 1894

Emmanuel Marshall "Manuel" Collins - son
1895 1981

Joseph Herbert Collins - son
1899 1970

She was with the Northrup family because her mother married Steven Northrup after the death of Charles Smith in 1864 (Civil War? - there are so many Charles Smith's who enlisted in Missouri there's probably no way we will ever know). Jesse's half brother - Ashley Northrup married my husband's great aunt Lillie Rader - that's why I have the information.

Hopefully, this will give you enough information to "knock down your brick wall."

Though I do not have an identified photograph of Jesse, I do have a family portrait with numerous family members - one of the Northrup "boys" was a professional photographer, so there are quite a few photographs taken by him that have survived the past 100 years - including my husbands grand parents and great grandparents! If you are interested in more information, feel free to contact me again.
