  Research Notes:


In earlier versions of Patrick's People this family was confused, and the information intermingled slightly, with that of James Collins and Rose King, also based in Cambusnethan parish, who had children with the same names. This has now been rectified.

  Medical Notes:

James Collins, son of the deceased and who was present where the death occurred, gave notice of his father's death at Cleland on 25 October 1889. 4
