24. Kansas Connection: Mary Horton O'Neil Collins
Mary Horton O'Neil (note one "l") was the daughter of Moses O'Neil and the great-granddaughter of Hugh and Deborah.
Moses settled in Kansas after he came back from California [that's another story!]. He married Eleanor Rosebaugh and Mary is their daughter. The Kansas branch seems to have lost the second "l" in O'Neill.
She married Alonzo Collins and this is her family.
Top, L to R--Mary Ellen, Frank H., Hubert L., William O'Neil, and Marjorie M.
Seated, L to R--Alonzo, Eugene F, and Mary Horton. [Moses' mother was Anne Horton.] Eugene was born in 1906, so this photo is ca 1915 or so.
