Van Gundy Family Tree

Notes for John J COLLINS

Having been orphaned in 1861, and apparently having a step-mother who didn't want to raise him, John, at age 12, moved in with his father's youngest sister, Aunt Martha Carter.

He attended Westfield College from 1871-1873. He then taught school in the winters and farmed in the summers.

He was listed as a farmer, PO Oakland, IL, in 1879
