1880 US Census


The next place we find James Collins is in the 1880 US Census. He is still living in Richwood Township, Richland County in southwestern Wisconsin.

He is still working as a farmer. He now has 5 children living with him and his wife Elizabeth, including my wife’s great-grandfather, Albert. This census also lists his birth place as Indiana and lists the birthplace of his parents as Maryland and Delware.
