I have tried to find more information on William C. Collins and his family. My mom had, in her family tree program, a spouse by the name of Ann. That is all she had. I have found marriage records for an Ann Ferguson, (Fergusson), and William C. Collins and a child in the 1860 census, aged 2 by the name of Cordelia. After that, nothing.
I can not find them in the 1870 census' anywhere. Which led me to think maybe William died during the Civil War, if he fought at all.
I have searched for Cordelia, using Delia and any other nickname I can think of, she doesn't even turn up. Her name is not quite as common as William and Ann, so thought I would give it a try.
Does anyone have any information about this family? I'd appreciate any insight. Thanks!
