Boyd Collins

Boyd and his brother William Collins are included here because they were convicted together for "incest" in March 1912. According to the records of the Washington State Reformatory - the brother were both born in West Virginia and had been farmers in Forks, Clallam, Washington when they were arrested. They were both convicted on the same day - so the big question is - were they committing incest together or with a third member of the family? And if it was a third member, was that member male or female? They were both paroled on May 2, 1913 and their parole ended on August 1, 1914.
