David J. Collins married Martha Bartlett, the daughter of George Riley Bartlett and Nancy King. He was the son of John H. Collins and Catherine Poff Stump. John was Catherine's second husband and I am writing about him today because he is my great grandfather.

Though his marriage record says David J. Collins, numerous documents have listed him as Daniel and this made tracking him down difficult. If not for the obituaries of the Floyd website I might never have known his real name or his marriage date.
David married Martha at her father's home in Floyd, Virginia on September 13th, 1894. He was 23 and his bride was 20 years of age. The ceremony was performed by David Sumner.
