Tombstone Tuesday - Andersen and Collins

In 2000, my father and I took a trip back to Salem, Massachusetts.  It would be his last trip back to his home town.  While we were there, we visited the family graves at Greenlawn Cemetery.  Here is one of the photos from our visit.

Frank and Mary J. Andersen had six children, five who survived to adulthood.  Lillian May Andersen, their oldest daughter (my great aunt) married Frederick Collins of Massachusetts.

  1. What is your Collins lineage? I have a Collins lineage from Salem/Lynn, Massachusetts. I used to live there and go swimming at Collins Cove!

  2. Hi Heather!
    I actually know very little about the Collins line. My great aunt, Lillian M. Andersen married Frederick Collins and Fred died 16 Sep 1968 in Danvers, Massachusetts. They had a son, Robert, in 1928, who married Evie Bouvier. They had 3 children. He died in 1998 in Marblehead.
