About Mary Collins

Biography

http://thomas.tolmanfamily.org/gedcom-tree/gp95.htm#head4

BIRTH: Abt. 1632 in England. In the Vital Records of Bridgewater, Plymouth, Massachusetts (film FHL #0164691 or book FHL #974.482/B2 V2v, vol. 1, p.316), Mary is listed as the child of Thomas Tolman and Sarah with no birthdate given.

MARRIAGE: There is no record of her marriage. Mary was listed as Mary Collins in her Father's will. In her death record she is listed as mother of Henry Collins 3rd. Lynn, Massachusetts, marriages & deaths to 1849, p. 461 (film FHL #0547549, item 2). We have found in the Collin’s Genealogies that Mary, who married Henry Collins, had her first child in 1660 and her second Henry Jr., born 2 Oct 1661. The Vital Record of Lynn, Massachusetts (FHL film #397791, Vol. I, p. 113), gives Henry's birth as 1651, but LoaDon Glade and other family researchers think that is a typo, as this record was originally burned and reconstructed also. They also question whether Mary would have had a child in 1651 and waited 9 years before she had the others.           

DEATH: Vital Records of Lynn, Massachusetts, Vol. 2 1675-1700 (photo copy of Original Book FHL film #0877736, p.18 or film #0397791, p. 461) - Mary Collins, mother to Henery Collins Tertius, departed this life February ye 14th 1723.
