WHO IS MR. COLLINS?
As our journey continues, we left off last week with William Collins living in San Francisco with his wife Annie in 1917. Williams does not appear in any records in San Francisco after 1917. The next record that appears shows him in Stockton in 1920. At this time, William would have been in his mid-thirties. The U.S. Census, Precinct 3 lists William and Annie and their three kids Consuela (5), William J. (2) and Claire J. (6 months). William is also listed as working as an electrician for city offices.
