Olive Hawley Collins 142512780
Hello Miranda,
I see you live at Lycoming County and was wondering if you have access to obituaries there. I have a theory, one is one of my Find A Grave's and one is yours. I'd like to see your opinion. I have a Find A Grave for John B Collins, died 1894, Lock Haven, PA. His obituary listed a wife and 7 children. Your Find A Grave Olive Hawley Collins, had 7 children after his death, was listed in city directory as widow of John B Collins in 1899, after the death of this John, and several of her children's death certificates lists born Lock Haven, PA to John B Collins and Olive Hawley.

They all seem to fit perfectly to go with this John B Collins. I was thinking if an obituary listed when she became a widow, that might help clarify.

Here is the family and reasons it makes me think they go together. I see no estate record at Clinton County for John B when he died, to help clarify, or that would have listed names of children, but none.

1885 Lock Haven City Directory
Collins John B, laborer, h 206 E Bald Eagle

1889-1892 Lock Haven City Directory
Collins John B, laborer, h 207 E Bald Eagle

1880 Foster, McKean, PA, Jno Collins 35 born abt 1845 PA, both parents born Ireland, a Laborer, Olive 26 born abt 1854 PA, both parents born Ireland, Mary 8, Jno 2, Estella 8 months.

1899 Williamsport City Directory
Collins Olive, wid. John B., bds 133 West

1900 Williamsport, Lycoming, PA, Olive Collins 45 born Nov 1854 PA, both parents born Ireland, living at 133 W 3rd St, widowed, had 10 children with 7 living, John 22, William 19, Leona 17, Paul 16, James 14, Rose 12, Catherine 8, Mary Hanley (Hawley) 27, her niece, Michael Hanley (Hawley) 75, her father, widowed.

That John B Collins findagrave is no. 156487146
And your Olive Collins is findagrave no. 142512780

Thanks so much for any input!

Thank you so much for the obituary for this person. It gives important information that we didn't have on my mother's sister, who died at age 3. However, the relationship to Ruth Rigney Fry is not "half-sibling." All 4 girls were full siblings.

Reuben Bartlett
I think there is a really good possibility that Reuben's father was John Barlet (or Bartlett), according to census records, it looks like John was Barlet in the 1860 census and Bartlett in the 1870 - the rest of his families names and ages match both records as well. I have found a Find-A-Grave for John, under John Barlet. His wife was named Hanna(h)... Please let me know if you would like further information and/or your opinion on this? Thank you!!

Heidi Eck
Heidi is my cousin and she is very much alive. Why did you have her as deceased? That's creepy. Please verify your information before you post it.

See duplicate record 112505320 which has George's burial location. Can you combine? He is my husband's third cousin. I am not the creator of the duplicate memorial.

Wrong Parents
Christopher Sheets b. 1820 memorial #27597877 has parents as Abraham Sheets b. 1822 memorial #27597867. Abraham is his brother not his father. Please correct. Unable to locate Christopher's father. Thank you, Judi Dickens Paul
