Collins Winfree (Winfrey in some records) is the son of James Winfree and Elizabeth Jones of Goshen District, Graville Co North Carolina. He is listed in the 1803 Columbia Co Ga Tax list. In Granville Co North Carolina Settlement Records of Reuben Jones, Collins Winfree is an heir and is referenced as going to Tennessee. This was in 1835 that this reference was made. Collins Winfree is shown in land records of Coffee County Tennessee. His brother David Nicholas Winfree and his family among others of North Carolina and Halifax County Virginia settled in Smith Co Tn November 1822. (We own the original record book which David Winfree wrote this statement and then signed it). These Bible records were published in Spring Issue of "Detroit Society for Genalogical Research" Spring 1966 Issue. Collins Winfree (y) does not seem to be listed in any Census Records that I have researched. I do believe his full name to be James Collins Winfree, James being for his father, and Collins being for his grandmother, Catherine Collins of all North Carolina and Virginia. I do not have copies of any deed records from Coffee County Tn on Collins Winfree, but I do feel that he left children living in that County, which I have no information on other than what I stated in this posting. If anyone should locate any land records or other information on Collins Winfree in Coffee County Tennessee, I would surely like to obtain copies. Collins Winfree (y) may have died sometime after 1835 and before the 1840 or 1850 Census Records were taken.
