Hello All
I am researching Joseph and this family for a friend whose grandfather was Joseph Lincoln Hollins, he was a freemason in Burselm. I dont know anyhting about the USA link, I have linked him to 3 Josephs as father, grandfather, gt grandfather and Charles above him, Charles Hollins may be in Stafford gaol in 1841, his wife Sarah on her own with children?
All addresses in every census aroun St Pauls area of Burslem and back sytch.
William Garfield Hollins is JL Hollins brother and appears in Derby 1911.
Sarah are you related to Teresa Beck of Dunfries?
regards Gareth
