Could anyone confirm if this is the aunt of the famous Michael Collins?

My grandmother was Margaret Kingston, born in Skibereen, Co Cork in 1913. Her mother was Hanora Collins, who I think is the brother of Michael Collins, who was the father of Michael Collins.

I think Hanora was born in Dunmanway in 1879. She married William Kingston in 1905. She died in Drimoleague in 1950. The dates match with family oral history.

You can find the family on this site. Michael John Collins (father of the famous Michael) was born in 1815. He didn’t marry until 1876. By this time he was over 60 & probably had to wait for his own father’s demise so he could afford to marry. Your ancestor was born in 1879. I should imagine her alleged father would be dead already. (Also highly unusual to have a 60+ year gap between siblings.) 

You may want to contact one of the profile managers of the Collins family members you are interested in?
