      Margaret Morris, youngest child of Dr. John Morris, who was but a little over a year old at the death of both of her parents, was taken and reared by her grandmother, Margaret (Hill) Morris, at Burlington, New Jersey, where she married, October 4, 1810, Isaac Collins Jr., eleventh child of Isaac and Rachel (Budd) Collins.

      On his marriage to Margaret Morris in 1810, Isaac Collins Jr. took up his residence in New York City, and engaged in the publishing buisness. The well known firm of Isaac Collins & Company, printers and publishers of books, etc., were so successful that, at the age of thirty-four years, Isaac retired from the business and devoted himself to philanthropic and charitable enterprises.
      In 1828, he removed to Philadelphia, principally on account of his wife's failing health.
      Margaret (Morris) Collins died in Philadelphia, April 22, 1832, and Isaac married (second) January 28, 1835, Rebecca, daughter of John Singer. She died in April of 1892 at the age of eighty-seven years. He died January 15, 1863.
