Collins (Sister to Bellzona) wife of James Griffith
Margaret (Bog) Collins married James
Griffith from Texas
There was a musical arrangement that
featured a bird singing out of the bog during this woman's life. One likes
to think it might have been what initiated her nickname. These women had a
love of music in their soul. They balanced this love with a greater love
for their creator and the combination made for beautiful strong children
such as you see here. This probably is the root of a gigantic family in
through Texas and would behove some brave soul to research this branch.
This work does not include their records. They lived in and around Tyler,
Texas and the Fort Worth area. PICTURE: Upper left, back row, Fannie
