  • Notes 
    • We aren't certain on this line. There are only 4 lines of evidence to go on that this may be the Collins were are looking for.

      1.) Family is "Collins" with a George at the right age.
      2.) Adaline is white on the census, just as Daniel Day stated.
      3.) Where they lived borders Springville, AL. Where Gertrude Ford was born.
      4.) The children are all Mulatto.
      5.) Family Rumor is that Gertrude has some Indian in her.

      Evidence against:

      1.) The family is not in Bullock as Thomas Day reported on his wife's (Gertrude's) Death Certificate.

      It's possible George Collins, worked in Bullock for a while. It's still a mystery as far as who Gertrude Ford's mother is. One idea is that George married his sister. The "S" that we find on the census for 1870. However, we simply do not know this at this time. This may explain however why Gertrude ended up with the last name Ford as she may have been raised by another family... and why Collins is also Sweetie's last name on the Death Certificate. Could Thomas have been telling us something?

      Further research is needed. - RVF
