Collins Family

Thank you so very much for the information on the Collins line. I have many photos that are not identified, but these photos did have names on them. The original photos are tintype, and Victora Bynum will be using the one of Warren and Tolitha in her new book, due out in 2010. I have the name of the book someplace, but it addresses the subject of Union supporters during the Civil War. I would be most interested in any information you could share about this family. Do you have the family Bible?
Thank you most sincerely
