Tombstone Tuesday - Collins

Warren J. Collins
1853 - 1942
With information from the 1900 census, it appears Warren J. Collins was born in Mississippi in June 1853. His parents, from the Washington State Death Record Index, were Stacy and Alice J. (Walters) Collins. In 1880, he was enumerated in Hays County, Texas, with his wife, Jane M. This census indicates they were married within the census year. There is a marriage indexed between a W. J. Collins and an M. J. Riley on March 24, 1880, in Travis County, Texas. This may be them. Martha died between 1900 and 1910.

From at least 1900 until almost the time of his death, Warren lived in Kingston, Kitsap County, Washington. He died on July 21, 1942, in Retsil, Kitsap County, Washington; presumably at the veteran's hospital there. Warren is buried in the Kingston Cemetery in Kingston, Washington.
