My original source for her (Sledge) showed her as a daughter of Richard Collins and Mary; Richard being son of Thomas and Elizabeth, and Mary being daughter of Daniel Mullins. Thomas Collins is shown as died 1752 Spotsylvania Co VA, and Daniel Mullins is shown as died before 1750, but no other dates are given. I am almost certain this is the wrong Mary.
I have found a Richard Collins who married Mary Mullins, but they were born in 1695 and about 1700 respectively, and married in 1720, and would have been in their 70s when Amy was born. This Richard is a son of Thomas and Elizabeth, and this Mary is a daughter of Daniel, and must be the family referred to in Sledge.
I think Amy's parents were actually Richard Collins b 1722 and Mary Madison. Richard and Mary were married after 1760. This Richard is a son of a Thomas b 1707 Spottsylvania Co VA.
This page has her as Amelia Jane, daughter of Richard born 1722 and Mary A Isbell Madison.
This page agrees with the above, and shows Amelia marrying Mastin Williams.
The Taliaferro Times shows Amy Collins who married Mastin Williams as descended from Roger Madison and Elizabeth Taliaferro. I forget where I got this reference, but it was probably genforum.
