I'm Mrs. Green's cousin through Rachel Duty and I am her and Jacob's great great grandson. It has been tough going trying to figure out anything about Jacob.

As you can tell his date of birth fluctuates from 1846-1853.

He is in Richland Township, Texas Co., MO at the time. He is living next to Elizabeth Betsy Collins and Levi Collins in this census and he and Levi are almost the same age. The only thing that precludes me from connecting him directly to this group is that Polly Collins is most likely the daughter of Aaron Collins and Elizabeth Betsy Collins. However, there is a possibility that this Mary Polly Collins could've been from one of the other branches.

*Jacob is alive obviously

His grave is in Flint Cemetery, Sharp, AR and the dates read 1853-1925

We are not sure of where he died and can only go off the headstone of the date unfortunately. My grandfather, who has long passed, said that he died when he was 15 which was anywhere from August 1925-August 1926.

The assumption had always been he was the son of Harmon and America Collins but I have not seen anything that points to that fact. I am of the thought he may have been a son or grandson of Stephen Collins, though I also have no proof of that.

We are also under the impression that Jacob is most likely not his first name and may actually be his middle name.

Thanks for any help.
