The Thomas in William and Jane hh 1851 is not the same person! James Collins is already married and lives in Osnabruck next to the Myers. I never see a record for James that includes the name Thomas so removing it. Note however, granddaughter and early Collins researchers refer to him as "Thomas James Collins b.1826 Sligo, Ireland"

James Collins is neighbor in 1851 Census. His marriage record is on pg 471 (vol.6 Film # 007859247
