Collins Family Archives

Virginia (Hiehle) Collins Family Story

Virginia Hiehle was born June 2, 1906 and died December 11, 1998. The story unfolds slowly as we take the photos out of the albums, off the walls and out of the dusty old boxes. We've scanned some of them and put them up on the web with a few words to help you follow along. "We" is mostly me, King Collins, Virginia's son. I live in Ukiah, California with my family. If you want to contact any of the family, you can let me know and I'll put you in contact.

By the way if you are one Virginia's very extended family or a friend of the family, or a friend of a friend of the family, you are welcome to send a picture or a comment. Just e-mail or mail a letter to 1201 Parducci Rd., Ukiah, CA 95482. Tell me your story. I love stories. Yeah, sure, and tell us about the typos and mistakes. I'm sure there will be some of those.
