Look for relatives with Families Collins and Lyons
« on: March 15, 2011, 08:10:29 PM »

I am helping a friend of mine doing her family tree.

She is told by her mother that Timothy Collins (see this post http://www.stcolumban-irish.com/smf/index.php?topic=222.msg445#msg445) is her great-great-great uncle, she thinks that her ancestor Margaret Collins (1855 Québec city- 1924 Québec city) (married with James Lyons (1854 Québec city -1941 Québec city)) was of the same family than Timothy. Margaret Collins is the daughter of Arthur Collins ans Mary Welsh from Ireland (place not found yet). I do not find any relative between the family Collins from Québec city and Timothy. We are maybe looking at in the wrong way.

Does somebody have more information about Timothy ? parents, brothers ans sisters ?

Thank you for your help.

The only information n that I have in my St. Columban records concerning the Collins family is:-

Timothy Collins was married to Elizabeth Brown and had the following children:-

Johanna Collins who was born in St. Columban November 12 1842 but died at only 16 years old on April 27th 1859

Michael Collins born in St. Columban on August 9th 1848

Jeremiah Collins born March 13 1850 and was twin to Patrick Collins. Who of course was born on the same day – March 13th 1850 – Unfortunately Patrick Collins passed away on March 20th 1850 at only 7 days old.

Thomas Collins who was born in St. Columban on August 12th 1852

Other Collins in the record but without any connection made to Timothy etc. include:-

 I also have a Catherine Collins that was married to Samuel Sexton.

I have a Frank Collins married to Elizabeth Slattery

I have a Jane Collins married to Denis Donovan

And another Jane, (in some records listed as Johanna Collins) married to James O’Leary

***** I have a Margaret Collins married to a Matthew O’Leary

And a Mary Collins married to a John Donon (maybe Donovan)

Thank you Fergus, this is mostly the same data I already have, I made a family tree on-line for my friend, it is at this time in French and I will make later the translation.

We try to make the connection with James Lyons, may be Lilian Joy.

Hello Herve,
I am a great-great-granddaughter of Timothy Collins, descended from his eldest child Mary Elizabeth Collins.

The Canadian census of 1861 and 1871 lists the Collins family in St Colomban. 
In the 1891 census  Timothy & his wife live with daughter Mary Elizabeth who was married to Robert John Birch (in the census it's mis-spelled as Berch) .  They are living in Hochelaga district, Cote St Antoine sub-district. One of Mary Eliz.'s children - Olivia Gertrude b. 1883 - was my grand-mother.

I have attached some files of my research, hope that they might be useful to you. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!

Regards,
Elaine Paul
