Of this scattered and extensive family the writer has not been able to gather sufficient data from which to connect them and to trace their genealogy satisfactorily. The first now known of them were two brothers, a hundred or more years age - the two brothers were Thomas and Jonah. Thomas was the progenitor of the Collins about Maiden Downs and Mullins. ... He had a son named Thomas (and perhaps others), who was the father of John, Solomon and Samuel, and probably four daughters... Jonah became the progenitor of the Collins below Marion and the Pee Dee Island Collins; don't know much about them. There were two or three brother, descendant of old John, to wit: William, James and Jonah - there were either sons of old Jonah or grandsons.

Another family of Collins, not related, as I am informed, to those mentioned above, is that of the late John J. Collins of the Ariel section...
