182. IVAN THOMAS "TOM"7 COLLINS (JAMES JOHNSON "JIM"6, MARTHA JANE5 HUNTER, WILLIAM JOHNSON4, JOHN3, WILLIAM2, SAMUEL1) was born 03 Mar 1891, and died 25 Dec 1979 in , Union, Ga. He married MARTHA ESTELLE TUCKER 08 Oct 1916 in Centerville, , Ga82, daughter of JOHN TUCKER and JESSE REYNOLDS. She was born 09 Oct 1897, and died 29 May 1968.

Notes for IVAN THOMAS "TOM" COLLINS:
Served as a Page in the Ga. Legislature for cousin Francis J. "Bud" COLLINS.

Ivan Thomas went to Hiawasse, Georgia where he attended the school variously called the Hiawassee Institute and/or the Hiawassee College. It had been founded by the two noted Baptist ministers, cousins, Dr. George W. Truett and Dr. Fernando Coello McConnell on land given by the McConnell family. Several young men from Choestoe attended the Hiawassee Academy. They would rent a cabin, "batch," or do their own cooking and housework, and attend classes. Their being able to attend this school represented a sacrifice on the part of their parents to provide the money for tuition and books, and to rent a place for their children to live, even as low as higher education costs were in those days.
Following his graduation from Hiawassee Academy, Ivan Thomas Collins then went to Mercer University in Macon, Georgia. It seemed a natural choice in his next step in education, for other boys from Choestoe, like Tom's cousin, Mauney Douglas Collins, who later served for twenty-five years as Georgia's State School Superintendent, and his friend and distant cousin, Norman Vester Dyer, who also became a noted educator in Georgia, attended Mercer University.
On October 8, 1916, Ivan Thomas Collins married Martha Estelle Tucker of Centerville, Georgia. Her parents were John T. and Jesse Reynolds Tucker. By the time of their marriage, Tom was in his chosen career of banking. After graduating from Mercer, he took graduate courses in business administration, banking, accounting, and commercial law. He was named to a national post, that of Comptroller of the Currency. His job took him into most of the states of the union where he was what we might commonly call a "bank inspector."
After his stint as Comptroller of Currency, Thomas Ivan Collins became president of a bank in Athens, Tennessee where he spent ten years before his semi-retirement due to heart difficulties in 1952. He returned to the county of his birth, Union, where he and his beloved wife, Estelle, lived until their deaths.
