I am looking for Harold Collins, possible middle initial is B. He was born abour 1914 in either Sweden or Michigan. He is the adopted son of James Collins and Lucy Withey Collins.
In the 1930 census Harol, James and Lucy are living in Dwight, Huron Co., Michigan.
In the early 1940's James and Lucy managed cabins at Lake Van Etten in Michigan, Harold was with them.
Harold later moved tot he west side of the state of Michigan, he met his birth brother. We know he lived in Breedsville, Van Buren Co., Michigan bujt don't know exactly when.
James died in 1948 in Michigan
Lucy died in Oct 19656 in Breedsville, Van Buren Co., Michigan.
At the time of Lucy's death, in 1966, Harold was living in Manhattan Beach, Calif.
Harold was married, I don't know name of the wife, and they did have children. They also must have lived in the Breedsville, MKichigan area, as they were members of the Breedsville Methodist Church.
Harold would be my mom's cousin, Lucy and Jim were her aunt and uncle. She has not seen Harold since the early 1940's
We are tryhing to make connection for genealogical updates.
Does anyone recovnize this family???
thanks in advance
Washtenaw Co., Michigan
