Stories

Still investigating the name and particulars of the wife of Isaiah. Isaiah himself refers in his pension application to his wife "Rhoda" as being age 65 in 1820. Several applicants to NSDAR have submitted the name of Rhoda Carey, but as of 10/2008 they list Rhoda "X" with "RHODA'S MAIDEN NAME NOT PROVEN" appended to it. Another lead points to Rhoda, daughter of Oliver and Abigail (Bartlett) Collins. Genealogies of Connecticut families: from the New England historical and genealogical register (link below) indicates that Oliver Collins was married to Abigail Bartlett on 28 Sep 1753, but Rhoda Collins is listed as being born before that marriage date in 1752 and is said here to have married "Jared" Atkins. http://books.google.com/books?id=k6fDl9gE45IC&pg=PA473 Volume 33, page 248-250 of The American Genealogist refers to Isaiah
