  1. My family is Elijah Couch who married ANN/Annie Roberts Collins Davidson. Elijah is a brother to Dosha Collins Gibson who married Isaac Gibson. Do you know anything about Ann? I found her maiden name to be Roberts for her first child born. But cannot connect her name to COLLINS for her next two children. I am really searching for where she gets the Collins name? Hope to hear from you. Marilyn
