         The most senior member that I've found in this family is " George Collinson ( 1 ) "   ( the name for his family line later became Collison ).   It is strongly believed that he emigrated from England in circa 1660 making this family one of the older families of the United States.   It is unknown exactly where he landed, however he was indentured to one Matthew Read who had paid for his trip to America.   Read had a Tobacco farm on Kent Island on the Eastern Shore of what is now the state of Maryland.   After George Collinson ( 1 ) served his indeture he was given 50 acres of land and the " Collison " family had its start in the new world as you can read below.

(Chris Pickett)







Is the senior family member known at this time.
His parents and siblings are unknown.
He was born in ca. 1643 probably in England.


         He emigrated to America in ca. 1660, along with others who were sponsored by one Matthew Read.   The first record we find of " George " is from the Kent County Court records of Maryland as follows:
      " Att A Court holden upon Kent thes first day of May 1661 Present Capt. Robert Vaughan, Mr. James Ringgould, Capt. Thomas Brodnox, and Mr. Nickholas Pickard

      "The Deposition of George Collesson aged 18 years or thearabout sworn in Court, Saith that Thomas Bright leaned against the Cornner of the Chimny, Thomas Reead bade hime have a Care of his gunne and desired hime to lay it upe and tould hime that when he Died the gunne shuld be his and further saith not.

(signed) George Collinson "

         In 1662, " George's " name was included with a number of other settlers on Kent Island in a petition to the Lieutenant General of Maryland.   The protest covered the disappearance of several thousand pounds of tobacco which was levied for the organization of a company of soldiers to protect the Island.

         " George " served his indentureship (or contract) with Matthew Read to pay for his passage to America.   Settlers who could not finance the fare themselves were ordered by the Provincial Court to serve a term of years with a colonist, such as Matthew Read, who was already established here.   Mr. Read's Tobacco Plantation was on Kent Island.

         After serving his time with Mr. Read, " George " entered a request for his own land on March 12, 1669 as follows:

Patents, Liber 12, p. 465:

      "Came George Collison of Talbot County and proved right unto fifty acres of land it being due to him for his time of service performed unto Matthew Read of this Province.
      Warrent then issued in the name of the said George Collison for fifty acres of land it being due unto him for the consideration above specified.

Certificate return the twelveth of June next."

- 12 March 1669

         There is no record of where this land was or what" George " did with it.   Matthew Read also gave him a bushel of corn ( for seed ) and a suit of clothes upon completion of his indenture.

         " George " later bought a 80 acre tract of land from Robert Lambdin on June 16, 1678 for 2,000 pounds of tobacco.   This land was on the north side of the Choptank River in Talbot County.   This land was previously name " Rehobeth " by Mr. Lambdin who remained a neighbor of " George ".

         In 1680 he was married and his wife, "Elizabeth _____", entered into court to prove her own rights for fifty acres of land.   Elizabeth was also from England, however her maiden name is unknown.   The fifty acres that she received on August 9, 1680 was adjoined to their current property," Rehobeth ", and they named this fifty acres " Rehobeth Point ".

         On October 6, 1682 the Collinson's sold " Rehobeth Point " to James Dowdall a planter, for 2,600 pounds of tobacco.   This transacton identified " George " as a " cooper " or " barrel maker ".

         " George " also gave a court deposition in 1696 regarding the boundries of " Wade's Point " which was about one mile north of his property.

         In 1706, John Richardson, planter, of Talbot County sold " Rebobeth Point " to a George Collison which was probably
" George, Jr. ( 2 ) " instead of " George ( 1 ) ".   However, it could have been either.   Records show that the land went from the original purchaser, James Dowdall, to his wife Isabel who in turn willed it to one Thomas Studen ( Studham ? ).   Mr. Studham sold the land to a Winifred Richardson who in turn willed it to John Richardson.

         " George Collinson ( 1 ) " passed away in ca. 1715 based on Talbot County court records which mention that he was deceased as of 1716.   The records also tell that " George's " property was now in the possession of " George, Jr. ( 2 ) ".   The date of Elizabeth's passing is unknown, however, she was still alive in 1716 based on the same above court records and also on the fact that she was remarried in 1716 to " David Roberts ".

         It is believed that George ( 1 ) and Elizabeth had a total of three children based on records showing two other Collinson girls in the area.  Where George ( 1 ) and Elizabeth are interred is unknown.

2.  George Collinson, Jr.  ~  b. cir. 1679  ~  d. November, 1736  ~  ( Age abt. 57 years )
3.  Susanna Collinson  ~  b. September 24, 1693  ~  d. ( unknown )
4.  Percila Collinson  ~  ( dates unknown )

The birth order of the children has not been verified.

( 3 )  ~  Susanna  ~  nothing further is known.

( 4 )  ~  Percila  ~  nothing further is known.



Was born the only known son of :
" George Collinson ( 1 ) " and " Elizabeth (_____) Collinson "
in about 1679.
His age was determined
based on a land deposition in 1734 which recorded him as "55 years" in age.


         " George " married " Elizabeth Kemp " in 1702 in the Church of England of Talbot County, Maryland however there is strong evidence that they lived together previous to their marriage.   She was born the daughter of Robert Kemp and Elizabeth Webb Kemp on May 20, 1683 probably in Maryland.

         The Kemp's were close neighbors of the Collinson family as can be seen on the map of Bay Hundred, Talbot County, Maryland.   They lived on the land called " Bolton ".   This property was given to Elizabeth Kemp Collinson's mother, Elizabeth Webb Kemp, by her father Edmund Webb.

         The Kemp's were a Quaker Family which the Collinson's were not.   This, of course, caused great problems for the Kemp family.   " Elizabeth's " father " Robert " disowned her for this act, leaving her a shilling in his will of 1702 for "marrying against my mind".   " Robert's " other daughter, Jane, also married outside of the Quaker faith and was also disowned by her father.
" Elizabeth " was also disowned by the Quaker faith on May 27, 1704 at a Quarterly meeting held in the house of Sarah Stevens.

         " George " had, it is believed, purchased " Rehobeth Point ", 50 acres, from John Richardson, planter, of Talbot County & had also inherited his father's 80 acres farm "Rehobeth".   He farmed this land and he also had a Corn Mill on the property.   He had "Rehobeth Point" re-surveyed in 1725.

         " George Collinson, Jr. ( 2 ) " passed away sometime between October 31, 1736, the date of his will, and December 6, 1736, the date his will was probated.   " George's " will left his property to his three sons.

         " Elizabeth Kemp Collinson " passed away in ca. 1744 as her will was probated in December, 1744.   Together " George " and " Elizabeth " had 6 children.   Where they are interred is unknown.

  5.  Sarah Collinson  ~  b. December, 1701  ~  d. ( unknown )
  6.  Edward Collinson  ~  b. ( unknown )  ~  d. cir. 1760
  7.  George Collinson, III  ~  b. ( unknown )  ~  d. 1770

  ( 5 )  ~  Sarah  ~  nothing further is known.

  ( 9 )  ~  Frances  ~  nothing further is known.

( 10 )  ~  Lucy  ~  nothing further is known.




Was born the son of :
" George Collinson, Jr. ( 2 ) " and " Elizabeth Kemp Collinson "
in Talbot County, Maryland.
His birth would have been in the early 1700's.


         " Edward " married " Alice Caulk " who was born the daughter of Peter and Sarah Cartwright Caulk.

         He inherited a 3rd of his Dad's land, appx. 43 acres, called " Rehobeth and Rehobeth Point ".   The portion left to
" Edward " was noted in his dad George's ( 2 ) will as " his share of land laid out for him at the plantation he now lives upon. "

         It is evident that the division did not suit the sons.   Perhaps the farm was not productive enough to support the three families, or some of them wished to locate else where.   A deed of partition was entered in the Talbot County land records in 1753 stating as follows:

      " Whereas certain controversies and debate have been had between Edward Collinson and William Collinson, sons of George Collinson, both of Talbot County, at the division of a tract called "Rehobeth" and a tract called "Rehobeth Point" into three equal parts - a commission of two men having been agreed upon to divide the said land according to the last will and testament of their father, George Collinson...... "

         The document continues on with the division of the plantation, the description of each portion, and immediately afterward another deed was entered.   George ( 7 ) sold his one-third to his brother " Edward ", honoring the terms of his dad's will.
" Edward " now had a farm that was appx. 87 acres in size.

         " Edward " served in the Colonial Militia in a Talbot County Company commanded by Captian William Webb Haddaway of Bayside in 1748.   His brother " William ( 8 ) " served also.

         " Edward Collinson ( 6 ) " passed away sometime between June 16, 1759, the date of his will, and March 3, 1762, a date on which two men, Benjamin Kemp and James Hewes, testified that they saw the deceased " Edward " sign his will.   " Edward's " will also did not mention his wife Alice so it is sure that she died prior to 1759.   " Edward's " administration account filed on April 13, 1763 also stated that there was no widow.

         " Edward " left all of his property to his oldest son George ( 11 ), and when he died to son James ( 15 ), and when he passed away to son Edward ( 17 ), and when he passed away to son Benjamin ( 18 ).   It would appear that he did not want to divide his property due to the problems he had between his sons.  Together " Edward " and " Alice Caulk Collinson " had 9 children.   Where they are interred is unknown.

( 19 )  ~  Frances  ~  Nothing further is known.



Was born the son of :
" George Collinson, Jr. ( 2 ) " and " Elizabeth Kemp Collinson "
in Talbot County, Maryland.
His birth would have been in the early 1700's.


         He married " Sarah Aldern " who was born the daughter of Richard & Elizabeth (_____) Aldern who owned a large tract land called " Yafford's Neck " in Talbot County.   " George " evidently met Sarah Aldern at the St. Michael's Parish Church where her mother Elizabeth owned several pews.

         " George " inherited one-third, appx. 43 acres, of his father's land called " Rehobeth " and " Rehobeth Point ".   The portion he inherited was noted in his father " George's (2) " will as " to have his share of land laid out for him in Rehobeth Point ".

         He sold his third to his brother " Edward (6) " and moved to Dorchester County ( into that portion that is now part of Caroline County ) .   He was believed to be either a shipbuilder or timbercutter.

         " George Collinson, III ( 7 ) " passed away in ca. 1770 based on the writing of his will and when it was probated.   Together " George " and Sarah had 5 known children.   Where they are interred is unknown.

( 21 )  ~  Mary  ~  married " Peter Caulk ".
( 22 )  ~  Sarah  ~  nothing further is known.
( 23 )  ~  Rebeckah  ~  married a " Flaherty " and later she married a " Kirwan ".
( 24 )  ~  Elizabeth  ~  nothing further is known.




Was born the son of :
" George Collinson, Jr. ( 2 ) and " Elizabeth Kemp Collinson "
in Talbot County, Maryland ca. 1710.
He was married twice.


         He first married " Mary Caulk " on February 18, 1744/45.   She was the daugher of Peter and Mary Sockwell Caulk.
" Mary Caulk Collinson " died in ca. 1753.   He then married " Priscilla " whose last name and parents are unknown prior to 1755.

         " William " served in the Colonial Militia in a Talbot County Company commanded by Captain William Webb Haddaway of Bayside in 1748.   His brother " Edward (6) " served also.

         " William " inherited a 3rd, appx. 43 acres, of his father's land known as " Rehobeth and Rehobeth Point ".   The portion that he inherited was noted in his father " George's ( 2 ) " will as " to have his share of land laid out for him upon my dwelling plantation ".

         " William " had moved to Dorchester County ( which is today part of Caroline County ) by 1755.   It is unknown why he moved from the farm his Dad had left him in " Rehobeth ".   " William " leased a farm from James Cullins in Dorchester county called
" Hered's Choys ( aka. Hered's Choice ) " for a seven year terms in 1757.

         " William " sold his 3rd of his inherited land to his nephew " George Collinson ( 11 ) " in 1767 for 80 pounds.   Evidently after this sale " William " purchase 125 acres plus some woodland ( 40 acres? ) in Dorchester County which was noted as being on " Harvey's Creek ".   The property is noted as being called " Harvey's Branch ".

         " William Collinson ( 8 ) " passed away in 1770.   His home plantation on " Harvey's Branch " was divided between his two oldest sons, " Peter (25) " and " William (26) ".   He also stated in his will that it was his desire that his widow " Priscilla " be allowed to remain on his plantation during her widowhood.

        It is pretty well documented that the first two children of " William " were from his first marriage to Mary Caulk.   I have concluded, based on how they are listed in his will that the first seven children were with Mary and the last four with
" Priscilla ".   This could possibly be wrong.   However, " Priscilla " does mention that Eleanor ( 35 ), John ( 34 ) and
George ( 33 ) are her children in her will.   " William " had a total of 11 children.

        All of " William's " children appear to have changed their last name from "ColliNson" to "Collison" which is shown from here on out.   Possibly their father changed his last name as well.   " William's " widow " Priscilla " later married Edward Minner of Sussex County, Delaware.   Where they are interred is unknown but more than likely " William " was buried on his farm.

        In the 1860 Census he is still residing with them however he is now noted as " Thomas Collinson " ~ ( Age 11 ) .....
        " Thomas " is also noted in both Census' as being the same age as " Edward Collinson ( 163 ) ".
        So was he " Edward's ( 163 ) " twin ??? .....
        Or was he a member of the " Lee " family that was taken in and being raised by " John ( 93 ) " and " Sarah " ???

        " John Collinson ( 93 ) " preceded his wife in passing away on November 7, 1860 at the age of 46 years, 7 months, and 25 days and was interred in the Collinson Family Cemetery, Edgewater, Anne Arundel County, Maryland.

         It is believed ... that after the passing of her parents that " Mary ( 160 ) ", " now 16 years old ", possibly took over and kept the family together ( which would not have been surprising in that day ).

         They are shown in the Federal Census of 1870 ( dated: July 26, 1870 ) still residing in the first district, Anne Arundel County, Maryland with a post office noted as " South River ".   " Mary ( 160 ) " is noted as being 24 years old and a housekeeper and her brother " Edward ( 163 ) " is noted as being a 21 year old farmer.

         Also residing with them on July 26, 1870 are two of their siblings :
         Ann ~ ( Age 19 ~ helping in the home )
         John ~ ( Age 17 ~ working on the farm )
         Benjamin ~ ( Age 15 ~ working on the farm )
         And it was also noted a Jennie M. Burns was residing with them, as possibly a boarder,
         and she was noted as being 19 years old and as " leading school ".

        In the Federal Census of 1880 ( dated: June 9, 1880 ) they are still residing in the first district, Anne Arundel County, Maryland.   " Mary ( 160 ) " is noted as being 40 years old and a housekeeper and her brother " Edward ( 163 ) " is noted as being a 32 year old farmer who is now married.

Was born the 6th child and 4th daughter of :
" William Collinson ( 44 ) " and " Elizabeth Whittington Collinson "
on December 4, 1817
in Anne Arundel County, Maryland.


        She married " Francis Stevens " on September 13, 1838 in Anne Arundel County, Maryland.   He was born in about 1805 in Mount Harmony, Calvert County, Maryland and his parent's names are currently unknown.

        Prior to the 1850 Federal Census the family suffered " Great Sadness " when they lost one of their children.
" Richard William Stevens ( 180 ) ".   He was born on July 27, 1839 and passed away on October 6, 1840.

        They first show up as a family in the Federal Census of 1850 ( dated: September 21, 1850 ) residing on a farm in the 3rd District, Calvert County, Maryland.   " Francis " was noted as a 45 year old farmer and " Sarah " is noted as being a 30 year old homemaker.   They have " 5 " of their children residing with them :
        William ~ ( Age 9 )
        Francis ~ ( Age 8 )
        Mary ~ ( Age 6 )
        Sarah ~ ( Age 4 )

        Elizabeth Stevens ~ ( Age 30 ~ possibly Francis' sister ) ~
        C. L. Ann Stevens ~ ( Age 14 ~ relationship unknown )
        and Joseph ~ ( Age 13 ~ relationship unknown )

        In the Federal Census of 1860 ( dated: April 27, 1860 ) the family is still residing on a farm in the 3rd District, Calvert County, Maryland with a post office address of Sunderlandville, Maryland.   " Francis " was noted as a 55 year old farmer and " Sarah " is noted as being a 43 year old homemaker.   Residing with them are " 7 " of their children :

        Mary ~ ( Age 15 )
        Sarah ~ ( Age 13 )
        Ann ~ ( Age 11 )
        Elizabeth ~ ( Age 9 )
        Alice ~ ( Age 7 )

        " More Sadness gripped this family " ..... two of their children passed away prior to the 1870 Federal Census :
" William Collinson Stevens ( 181 ) " passed away on September 27, 1860 at the age of Age 19 years, 5 months, and 4 days.
It is currently unknown where he was interred.
        Then, 8 years later, on November 9, 1868 their daughter " Ann Elizabeth Stevens ( 185 ) " passed away at the age of 19 years, 11 months, and 5 days.   It is also currently unknown where " Ann ( 185 ) " was interred.

        In the Federal Census of 1870 ( dated: August 17, 1870 ) the family is still residing on a farm in the 3rd District, Calvert County, Maryland with a new post office address of Prince Frederick, Maryland.   " Francis " was noted as a 65 year old farmer and " Sarah " is noted as being a 50 year old homemaker.   Residing with them are " 3 " of their children :
        Francis ~ ( Age 27 ~ working on the farm )
        Elizabeth ~ ( Age 18 )
        Alice ~ ( Age 15 )
        Also residing with them in 1870 are two other unknown children :
        Eliza A. Scrivnor ~ ( Age 8 ~ noted as being black ) and Joseph Scrivnor ~ ( Age 6 ~ noted as being black )

        The family once again suffered " Great Sadness " ... when their daughter " Mary J. Idabelle Stevens Lane ( 183 ) ", wife of James Wesley Lane, passed away on September 1, 1875 at the age of 30 years, 7 months, and 28 days leaving behind their only child Ida Mary Lane.   She was interred in the Mount Harmony United Methodist Church Cemetery, Owings, Calvert County, Maryland.

" Family Note "

        Sometime prior, or possibly due to his daughter " Mary J. Idabelle Stevens Lane's ( 183 ) " passing, her father
" Francis Stevens " donated part of his farm to Mount Harmony for what would become the current
" Mount Harmony United Methodist Church Cemetery " located in Owings, Calvert County, Maryland.

  With the passing of " Mary ( 183 ) " the Stevens' family had now lost " 4 " of their children :
           " Richard William Stevens ( 180 ) " in 1840 ...
           " William Collinson Stevens ( 181 ) " in 1860 ...
           " Ann Elizabeth Stevens ( 185 ) " in 1868 ...
           and now " Mary ( 183 ) " in 1875 ...

        It is currently unknown where the first " 3 " were interred ... however ... it was more than likely on this donated land.   Their mother's, " Sarah J. Collinson Stevens' ( 95 ) ", current grave today has several empty spaces around her.

        After the passing of " Mary ( 183 ) " her younger sister, " Alice Jane Stevens ( 187 ) ", married her sisters widowed husband, James Wesley Lane.   James and " Alice Jane Stevens Lane ( 187 ) " had two children together.

        " Francis Stevens " preceded his wife in passing away in September, 1877 at about the age of 72 years.   He was interred in the Mount Harmony United Methodist Church Cemetery, Owings, Calvert County, Maryland however his headstone has not been found.   They had " 8 " children together.

        Then, on March 19, 1879, " Alice Jane Stevens Lane ( 187 ) " passed away at the age of 26 years, 6 months, and 23 days during the birth of their second child.   It is currently unknown for sure, however, she is believed to be interred also in the Mount Harmony United Methodist Church Cemetery.

        In the Federal Census of 1880 ( dated: June 9, 1880 ) " Sarah ( 95 ) " still appears to be residing on the family farm in the 3rd District, Calvert County, Maryland.   She is noted as being a 60 year old homemaker.   Her son Francis " Frank " Stevens ( 167 ), who is now married and 36 years old, is now running the family farm.
        Also residing with them are " Frank's " wife Mary A. Stevens ~ ( Age 25 )
        and their son William Wesley Stevens ~ ( Age 6 months )
        along with Joseph Scrivnor ~ ( Age 15 ~ noted as a black servant )

         Sadly, most of the " 1890 Federal Census " materials were destroyed in a 1921 fire and none of the information for the State's of New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania or Delaware survived the fire.

        " Sarah J. Collinson Stevens ( 95 ) " passed away on November 7, 1895 at the age of 77 years, 11 months, and 3 days.   She was interred in the Mount Harmony United Methodist Church Cemetery, Owings, Calvert County, Maryland with her husband.   They had " 8 " children together :

  ( 95 )  ~     Sarah Jane Collinson Stevens   ~     Francis Stevens  ~  ( Husband of Sarah )



Was born the 10th child and 5th son of :
" William Collinson ( 44 ) " and " Elizabeth Whittington Collinson "

in South River, Anne Arundel County, Maryland.


        He married " Caroline Whittington " on December 28, 1848 in Anne Arundel County, Maryland.   She was born on October 27, 1827 in Maryland the daughter of John A. Whittington ( 1789 - ???? ) and Sarah Pattison Whittington ( 1796 - 1884 ).

        They first show up as a family in the Federal Census of 1850 ( dated: September 20, 1850 ) residing in the 1st District, Anne Arundel County, Maryland.   " Thomas " was noted as a 26 year old Merchant and " Caroline " is noted as being a 22 year old homemaker.   Residing with them is their oldest child : Sarah - Mary ?? ~ ( Age 1 ) .

         NOTE :   There seems to be some confusion here ... In the 1850 census a " Sarah " is noted being age 1 year.   However in the 1860 census we see a " Mary " who is noted as being 11 years old.   I believe they are one and same person ... and possibly, as was done quite a bit during this time period, the first name was possibly changed to reflect another relative.

        In Federal Census of 1860 ( dated: July 31, 1860 ) they are still residing in the 1st District, Anne Arundel County, Maryland.   However since so many people are residing on the same property is was possibly a boarding house.   " Thomas " was noted as a 35 year old Merchant and " Caroline " is noted as being a 30 year old homemaker.   Their children residing with them include :
        Mary ~ ( Age 11 )
        William ~ ( Age 7 )
        Margaret ~ ( Age 4 )
        Thomas ~ ( Age 6 months )

        Also residing with them in 1860 on the same property are : Dr. Richard Weems ~ ( Age 46 ) ~ Maria Weems ~ ( Age 33 ) ~ Bettie Weems ~ ( Age 8 ) ~ Maria Weems ~ ( Age 33 ) and Henry Palmer ~ ( Age 25 ).

        In Federal Census of 1870 ( dated: July 26, 1870 ) they are still residing in the 1st District, Anne Arundel County, Maryland however it is only their family residing there.   " Thomas " was noted as a 55 year old Carpenter and " Caroline " is noted as being a 42 year old homemaker.   Their children residing with them include :
        Mary ~ ( Age 17 )
        William ~ ( Age 15 )
        Margaret ~ ( Age 13 )
        Thomas ~ ( Age 10 )
        Caroline ~ ( Age 6 )
        Julia ~ ( Age 2 )

        " Thomas W. Collinson ( 99 ) " preceded his wife in passing away on March 7, 1872 at the age of 47 years, 5 months, and 6 days.   He was interred in the Collinson Family Cemetery, Edgewater, Anne Arundel County, Maryland.

        In Federal Census of 1880 ( dated: June 3, 1880 ) the family has moved and is shown residing on a farm in the 3rd District, Calvert County, Maryland.   " Caroline " is noted as being a 52 year old homemaker.   Now " 5 " of her children are residing with her to include :
        William ~ ( Age 25 ~ Farmer )
        Margaret ~ ( Age 23 )
        Thomas ~ ( Age 20 ~ Farm Laborer )
        Caroline ~ ( Age 17 )

on October 29, 1821 in Caroline County, Maryland.
He resided in Tuckahoe Neck, Caroline County, Maryland.
He was married four times.


         " Robert " was first married to " Mary E. Saulsbury " in ca. 1850.   She was born on November 22, 1832 and died in ca. 1855 and it is believed she died during childbirth as did the child.

         " Robert " then married " Catherine Saulsbury " in 1856.   She was born on August 13, 1822 and the names of her parent's are currently unknown.

         They show up as a family in the Federal Census of 1850 ( dated: October 16, 1850 ) residing on a farm in Caroline County, Maryland.   " Robert " is noted as a 28 year old Farmer and " Catherine " as a 27 year old homemaker raising their " 2 " children :
         Robert H. ~ ( Age 3 )
         Elizabeth ~ ( Age 1 )
         Also residing with them on the farm is who would appear to be " Catherine's " brother : James Saulsbury ~ ( Age 40 )

         " Catherine Saulsbury Collison " preceded her husband in passing away on October 25, 1858 at the age of 36 years, 2 months, and 12 days.   It is believed that she passed away during childbirth as did their child.   It is currently unknown where she was interred.   They had " 3 " children together.

         " Robert " then married " Patience Keats " on December 6, 1859.   She was born the daughter of Perdue & Lydia Broadaway Keats in ca. 1830 in Caroline County, Maryland.

         They show up as a family in the Federal Census of 1860 ( dated: July 9, 1860 ) residing on a farm in Caroline County, Maryland with a post office address of Denton, Maryland.   " Robert " is noted as a 39 year old Farmer and " Patience " as a 27 year old homemaker raising " 3 " children :
         Robert H. ~ ( Age 15 )
         Elizabeth ~ ( Age 13 )
         Mary ~ ( Age 11 ) .

         " Patience Keats Collison " preceded her husband in passing away in ca. 1863.   It is currently unknown where she was interred.   They had " 2 " child together ... Margaret Ann and Priscilla Collison.

         " Robert " then married " Mary F. Davis " on May 4, 1864.   She was born November 22, 1832 and her parent's names are currently unknown.

         They show up as a family in the Federal Census of 1870 ( dated: June 18, 1870 ) residing on a farm in Caroline County, Maryland with a post office address of Denton, Maryland.   For some reason ... Both " Robert " and " Mary " noted to the census taker that they were younger than they actually were ... however the age of the children in the home were reported accurately.

         " Robert " is noted in that census as a 42 year old ( actual age was 49 ) Farmer and " Mary " as a 33 year old ( actual age was 38 ) homemaker.   The children in the home that were " Robert's " included :

         Elizabeth ( 225 ) had either married and moved out or had passed away ...

         One child in the 1870 census, John Collison ~ ( Age 15 ), based on his age could not be the children of any of " Robert's ( 130 ) " wives.   Also he didn't show up in the 1860 census.   Therefore he must have been a relative from another family.   Two others are also noted as residing with them in the 1870 census and they were both noted as being black : Clinton Schofield ~ ( Age 30 ) and Mariah Sharp ~ ( Age 24 ) .

         An 1880 Federal census has not, currently, been found for this family .....

         Sadly ... most of the " 1890 Federal Census " materials were destroyed in a 1921 fire and none of the information for the State's of New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania or Delaware survived the fire.

         " Robert Kemp Collison ( 130 ) " preceded his wife in passed away on July 27, 1898 at the age of 76 years, 8 months, and 29 days.   He was interred in the Oxford Cemetery, Oxford, Maryland.

         A 1900 Federal census has not currently been found for this family so it's currently unknown where " Mary F. Davis Collison " resided after " Robert's " passing.

         " Mary F. Davis Collison " passed away on May 5, 1903 at the age of 70 years, 5 months, and 13 days.   She was interred with her husband in the Oxford Cemetery, Oxford, Maryland.
