The death of Michael Collins of 20 Durfey street occurred 
Wednesday afternoon at 4 o'clock after an illness of about 
three months. The deceased was born in Ireland 75 years ago 
and came here in 1860 and has lived in Greeneville since. 
Jan. 12, 1868, he was married to Nora Enright in St. Mary's 
church, and she died three years ago. He had been employed 
at the U.S. Finishing company within three months of his 
death. He is survived by four children, Matthew, Michael, 
Misses Nora and Esther, all of this city.  

Additional Comments: Limerick as his county of origin is 
shown by his mention in the obituary of Margaret Collins 
Maloney, as her surviving brother, in which was stated her 
birth in Limerick. Her 1910 obituary was also submitted to 
this site. See under "Maloney".
