the wound it grew worse; sent word for the doctor to come out to their farm.  By the time the doctor

arrived gangreene had set in and Samuel's leg had to be amputated; the doctor spent a few days at

*SHEPHERD, Lizzie   boarder  w  f  MY 1830 70 yrs. widow  11 children  8 living KYKYKY

*NOTE   Who is this Lizzie Shepherd?

NOTE: Family reports that Carolins ? Collins, wife 1 and their daughter Cora Collins ; lived with Stephen Collins  relative Doc. Collins after their divorce and Stephen's remarriage to Oma Oney.

NOTE:  One would believe that this information in this census would have been given by

Stephen or Omy Collins.  My own thinking on his birthdate is he maybe the son of  the

Jane Unknown maiden name who was with Elbe Collins in the 1870 Floyd Co. census;

was Stephen to young to be listed?  If he was born in 1866, he should appear in the 1870

census somewhere. Apparently, Stephen was raised with some of the children of Elbe

Collins and Kate Gibson, is this the reason in his Obituary from the New Salem Babtist Minutes it says his mother is a Kattie Collins. 

NOTE: Do not believe Kate Gibson ever married Elbe Collins. SAGR.
