Deposition of 22 July 1898, at Tillie, Henry P. Collins stated I am 63 years
old, P.O. as shown (Tillie,)Occupation is farmer, I served as a private in
Company L, 14 Ky Cav., enlisted dec. 1862 and was mustered out in March 1864.
I am the identical Henry P. Collins that made application for pension. I am
now pensioned at $10.00 a month uner Act June 27, 1890 for partial deafness
disease of back and rupture.  I claim pension under the general law for partial
deafness and disease of back.  I also have a claim pending for increase
under the new law.  I had no other service than that in Co. L, 14 Ky Cav.
except that I was in Three Forks Battl. for some time after my discharge.
I was not in the Confederate Army at all and did not aid the Rebellion in
any way.  I enlisted at Boonesville, KY.  Don't remember that I was
examined at all when I enlisted.  My health was good when I enlisted. I
had never beensick before that and was as stout a man as the country
afforded.  I was living right here when I enlisted, and had lived here all
my life.  Any of my neighbors that are old enough to know can tell you that I
was in good health before the war.
Q.  When and where did you incur your first disability in the service?
A.  I first had the earache at Irvine, KY.  We were camped up stairs in the
Court House at Irvine, KY about Feb. 1863.  One night while lying down both of
my ears began to hurt.  It began with a pain and I thought it would kill me.
My ears kept hurting me, and almost made me crzy all that night, the next day,
and into the next night.  The next night my brother, Calvin Collins went with
me to see a doctor.  I did not know the docotr, but my brother did. and he took
me to him and woke him up at night to give me something for my ear.
This was Dr. Wiggles.  Don't know whether he is alive or not but he was
an old like man then.  He put something into my ears that eased the
pain, so I could sleep.  They never got as painful again, but have hurt
me off and on ever since and it seems like there was something buzzing
in my ears.  I kept my ears plugged up all the rest of the time in the
service.  I have been hard of hearing ever since the pain first come on
me.  I cannot hear any great distance.  I can hear alright clse to me,
but people talking three rods away I cannot hear to tell what they say. I have
no idea as to what caused the trouoble with my ears unless it was from
catching cold.  I don't know anyone bywhom Ican prove the origin of
disease of ears except Calvin Collins, John Breeding made me an
affidavit on this point, but I
Stated he had partial deafness, disease of back and rupture. Stated he
enlisted at Booneville, said he was as stout a man as the county afforded, was
living at Tillie when enlisted and had lived there all his life.  Got an
earache while stationed at Irvine, KY during war, was camped upstairs in Court
House about Feb. 1863.  His brother, Calvin, went with him to see a Doctor
Wiggles.  Has been hard of hearing ever since.  Jesse Collins, Fielden Collins
and Dave Gibson were also in court house at that time.  At time of affidavit,
Fielden Collins was dead, Dave Gibson was in Clay Co, Jesse Collins lived in
Roan Co., KY.    Claimant stated marriage date and children's births.

About June or July 1863, claimant was in hospital in Proctor, KY with fever.
Took sick while either on or returning from a scout patrol.  Went to hospital
and was treated by Dr. Daniel who stated claimant had typhoid fever. Caused
pain in his back and head.  Had no picket duty after he was sick. Claimant
came back to Tillie neighborhood about Dec. 1866.  He felt trouble in small of
bck caused by cold and exposure and upper back from fever.  After discharge
from service, he enlisted in Three Forks Battalion and was in it until July
1865.  From then until Dec. 1866, he lived near Booneville, Ousley Co., KY.

On August 27, 1898, F. L. Churchhill, Special Examiner made report on merits of
claim.  He explained to claimant that evidence was not sufficient to establish
continuance of the alleged disabilities and claimant stated no better could be
obtained.  All witnesses in case were near neighbors and had known claimant all
his life.  Stated claimant was in good health for a number of years after the
war and even his wife knew nothing of his disabilities for several years after
his discharge.  Following persons were interviewed:  Watson Collins; Fielden
Johnson; McCager S. Napier; Joseph Campbell; Woolery Campbell; John Duff.
Letters from twelve other comrades became exhibits in this report. All
comrades in that district were either inverviewed or written to by examiner,
plus others he found.

Churchill also stated "the claimant belongs to a large family of Collins most
of whom do not have a very good reputation.  He is, however, one of the best of
the family.

Dr. J. E. Cornett, an original affiant is dead.  He did not stand very high in
the profession, being a self-educated mountain doctor.  The claim is utterly
devoid of merit and should be rejected."

32.  Carter4 Collins (Briant W.3, Thomas2, Samuel1) was born Abt. 1837 in Letcher Co., KY, and died Aft. 1888 in Douglas Co., KS.  He married Mary Robinson June 29, 1855 in Letcher Co., KY.  She was born Abt. 1836 in Hawkins Co., TN.

Notes for Carter Collins:
!SOURCE:
BIRTH:  Mar. Rec. shows his Birth Place is unk.
MARRIAGE:  I have another record, information from Roger Cassity,  which gives marriage as having ocurred in
Morgan Co., Ky. althought marriage records of KY definitely place the marriage
in Letcher Co.

Was this the Carter Collins who served in the Confederate 13th Cav?
"  Collins Carter was Pvt in Company H of 13th Ky Cav Deserted Nov 2 1862 "

NOTES: 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."


Was Fielden adopted by this couple?  Was his real name Stamper?  This is belief of Roger Cassity.

NOTE:.After further research by D.S.Collins and others, the 1910 census clearly states Fielden’s middle initial is “B”. I believe this stands for “Burdine”, and the early census (1870) showing only a “Burdine” @ 7 yrs old , is an error that listed him by his middle name. His death certificate states Fielden D., however, I fall back on 1910 when
Fielden himself would have given his own information. I have photos that clearly show a strong family resemblance. Kathleen Cassity Collins who knew him when she was a young woman, stated that Fielden was not adopted, but was a blood son of Carter.

Roger Cassity stated that this couple were his great great grandparents and they moved to Morgan County Ky in the 1870s.  He was a justice of the peace in Morgan Co. by 1879 and they are listed on the 1880 Morgan Co. census.

He also stated that Fielden C. Collins is hsi great grandfather and is shown on the 1880 Morgan Co. census, age 18, born 1862 but is not shown in the 1870 Letcher Co. census.  It has been suggested by others that he was adopted by Carter W. and Mary.

Following Info. from Kenneth Young, June 2000.

Marriage record of John G. Combs who married Aury Martin, security Lewis Hays,
at the home of Reece Young on Jan. 6, 1885 in Knott Co.

Young was the father of David Young, David was the father of William Young, William was the father of Reas D Young, Reas was the father of John Silas Young, John Silas was the father of John Young, John Young was my father. He was married to Rachel Gibson daughter of Arthur  Gibson and Matilda Barger.  I have not been able to find any info on Arthur Gibson as to who his parents were etc.

I have heard he was a Collins and went by the name of Gibson, because he was raised by a Gibson.
