Descendants of Thomas Collins, Sr.


 
Generation No. 1

1.  THOMAS1 COLLINS, SR. was born Bet. 1770 - 1780 in Wilkes Co., NC1, and died March 15, 1846 in Knott Co., Ky.  He married NANCY WILLIAMS Abt. 1800 in North Carolina.  She was born Abt. 1782 in North Carolina2.

Notes for THOMAS COLLINS, SR.:
Thomas Collins is listed in the 1800 Ashe Co., North Carolina Federal Census as the head of a household of 7 "all other free persons" along with Ambrose Collins(4 family members), Valentine Collins(6 family members), and Vadery Collins(4 family members).  None of these four families are listed as free whites nor are any of the families enumerated according to ages as are all other household in this census. 

The 1810 Ashe Co. Federal Census lists T. Collins with four free white males under 10, one free white male 26-44 years, and one free white female 26-44 years.  Also, this census shows E. Collins(Elisha?) with 3 free white males under 10, one free white male 16-25, one free white female 10-15, 1 free white female 16-25, and 1 free white female 26-44; J. Collins with one free white male 16-25, 2 free white females under 10 , and one free white female 16-25; A. Collins(Ambrose?) with 1 free white male under 10, 1 free white male 45 and over, 2 free white females under 10, 3 free white females 10-15, and 1 free white female 26-44.  

The 1820 Ashe Co. Federal Census shows Thomas Collins as the head of a "free black family" with no enumerations and Elisha Collins as a "free black person."

The 1830 Ashe Co. Federal Census lists as the heads of households Larkin Collins, Robert Collins, Thomas Collins, Elisha Collins, and Levi Collins.  None are listed as free white persons and none of the families are enumerated in the census as others families were. 

These census reports indicate that the extended Collins family was considered to be, at times, above the status of slaves, but less than free white persons.  These early census records tell us that the Collins family members were Melungeons, a group of people who were often persecuted, denied civil rights, and often had their property taken away and sold to others.  This may have been one of the factors why the entire family of Thomas Collins, along with others, moved from North Carolina to Kentucky sometime between 1830 and 1840.


The 1840 Perry Co., Ky Federal census shows Thomas Collins between 50-59 years old, one male between 15 and 20 years, and one female between 50-59 years.

The 1844 Letcher Co., Ky Tax List shows Thomas Collins, Sr. residing on Colly Creek.  It also shows Briant, Burdine, Charles, Larkin, Robert, and two Thomas Collins, Jr. at the same location.

Notes for CARTER W. COLLINS:
Morgan County marriage records show that Carter W. Collins, age 19, of Morgan County, born in Letcher County and Mary Roberson, age 16, of Morgan County, born Morgan County were married on June 28, 1855.  Witnesses were M.J. Amyx and A.B. Nickell.

The 1860 Letcher County, Ky Federal Census listed Carter, age 23; Mary, age 24; William, age 4; and Bryant, age 9/12 years.  The 1870 Census also showed the family still living in Letcher County.  The 1880 Census showed the family living in Morgan County, Ky.  Since the two older sons were married in Morgan County in 1876, the family must have moved some time between 1870 and 1876.  The 1879 Kentucky State Gazetteer showed C. W. Collins as a justice of the peace for the Yocum community in northwest Morgan County.
 
During the Civil War, Carter apparently enlisted as a private in Company H, 13th Kentucky Cavalry(Confederate).  Records indicated that he deserted this unit by Nov. 2, 1862. i.e.( Briant murdered Nov. 1862)   The 1890 Veterans Census of Rowan Co., Ky showed that Carter had enlisted in the 10th Kentucky Cavalry(Union) and served between 1862 and 1863 when the unit was disbanded.  Former Confederate soldiers who switched sides and joined the Union army were sometimes called "galvanized Yankees."

Carter served as a Justice of the Peace in Morgan Co. for at least one term during the period of 1878-1883.  The 1879 Kentucky State Gazetteer listed C.W. Collins as the Justice for the community of Yocum (later Blaze), Morgan Co., Ky.

In 1900, Carter and Mary were living in the Morehead precinct, Rowan Co., Ky (1900 Federal Census).

The 1900 census shows that Mary Robinson Collins had given birth to 6 children and all were still living.  Was the name Berdine a mistake on the part of the censustaker in 1870 or was his name later changed to Fielden?
