AtoZChallenge Cemetery or Collis

I’m not sure if these are cousins or not. My 3x great grandmother was a Collis. Born in Sudbury, Suffolk, England around 1796. Ann Collis married George Dawson about 1815. So I saw these and snapped a photo – “like you do” when wandering around cemeteries.

Many generations of my family have Collis as a second first name.

  1. These are fairly new stones. Have any Collis cousins reached out to you after seeing this name on your blog? That might help solve the mystery of whether you’re related to these particular individuals.

    1. My Ann Collis is the end of one of my research lines. I need to put some effort in finding cousins. Here’s hoping one might read my blog or check out Ancestry.
