Looking for information re: Mary Manley, b. April 12, 1855 in Nashville, Davidson Co., TN. Married first to (Squire) Henderson Collins. Some gedcoms show “Collins” as her maiden name, and show parents as Elisha C. Collins, b. 1830 TN and Esther Archer b. 1825 in Wilson Co., TN. However, I wonder if this is in error and that Manley was really her maiden name? Looking for her parents and siblings if that is true, and for confirmation if Collins really was her maiden name, with Manley possibly being her middle name. This is confusing, but Mary Manley Collins eventually married to my great-grandfather John Eades/Eads in 1888, in Wayne Co., MO. Have done lots of research of my Eades/Eads ancestry and now trying to document more of the Manley and Collins lines. Mary died in 1938 in Greybull, Natrona Co., WY where she went to live in her later years with (or near) one of her children. I know most about her Eads descendants, but also some on her Collins children. I do also have a picture of her tombstone and would be happy to share what I have. Would love to meet up with someone researching the Manley/Collins/Eads folks.
