37 Surnames: Hall Collins
Jack Jenkins Sun Apr 20 5:32 PM

We were delighted to find a Vernon County web page. We are searching for any information on an Edith Hall that lived in Moundville in the early 1900's. She raised my mother. Mother always called her "aunt". Mom was adopted by Sam Collins around 1905-6. He was murdered shortly after she was adopted. She was taken in by Mrs or Miss Hall. Mom attended school in Moundville. We have pictures of her school classes from about 1911 till the time of WWI. We are writing the Nevada genealogical society. Mom flatly refuses to comment on her early life, saying that is "all water under the bridge." She is 93 now, and we are just now finding first cousins in and around Chilicothe from my father's side. If you know of anyone who would like to correspond regarding Moundville, etc. please feel free to pass along our address. Jack Jenkins 2300 Desert Drive, Las Cruces, NM 88001.

We are looking for information on Jesse Thelma Collins, who is currently about 93 years old. She was raised in Moundville by a maiden lady named Hall. Jesse is an untraceable orphan according to her. We do not know if Collins was her original surname or if she was adopted by a family named Collins. Jesse attended school in or around Moundville. She married Lee Henry Jenkins in Cillicothe around 1922-23 (we believe). Any information or leads would be helpful. We are currently trying to establish her citizenship under the new Medicaid rules.

Walter Evans Sun Apr 20 6:40 PM

I'm trying to find the siblings and parents of William Frederick Tyree (b. 1831 IN), who located in the Avola area of Vernon County after serving in the Civil War. His children and many descendants I have already charted. Can anyone tell me if there are records of any other Tyrees in Vernon County who were born before about 1855? There is an 1883 death record for a newborn child whose father was George W. Tyree (b. about 1828). Are there extant wills or any other records of George W. or any other Tyrees?
