COLLINS HOMESTEAD is located on the Sherwood road leading to Aurora, three and one-half miles distant, fourteen miles to Auburn. One of the features of this farm is its fruit, of which there are excellent varieties of plums, apples, pears and peaches; small fruits are also cultivated. The general products consist of hay, grains and dairying. The Elgin Creamery at Poplar Ridge receives the farm's dairy products. This is a farm which is claimed has not an acre of waste land, all being subject to cultivation. The name of the farm is derived from the fact that Thomas Collins always called this his home, which he settled at a very early date. The buildings and other improvements show thrift and a prosperous farmer. An eighty-ton silo serves as a factor in the feeding of stock. The water supply is that usually found on every good farm; it is furnished by wells both at residence and barns by windmill power. There is a fine grove of hardwood timber, consisting of ten acres. The earliest settler recorded was Leonard Searing, and from him to Thomas Collins, thence to his son Theodore F. Collins, the present owner, who is a native of Cayuga County, born in 1850, married in 1890 to Miss Fanny Leader, a native of England. Their family consists of three sons and one daughter. The mother died in 1901.
