Hi Miranda,
My name is Sherry Simpson. I'm Norma Mote Simpson's daughter-in-law.
She passed away on Saturday Oct. 14, 2017.
Would you update your information about her for me? I was going to add it and saw that you already had it listed.
Thank you,

William Miller #14055892
You'll see that I have submitted an edit for William's year of birth.Just investigated this as there was a conflict with his brother Andrew being reported as born the same year,a few months apart.His DC shows that too.Census info in the 1870 Brown Twp.Lycoming shows that William was 11 in 1870,so there's apparently an error on his DC.This does happen with some frequency.This family is related to me by marriage - my GGUncle was married to their sister Rebecca.Keep up the good work Miranda - it's invaluable !!

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!
