1870 Census: Page: 188, State: Illinois, County: Cook, City: 19th Ward of Chicago, Post Office: Chicago, Stamped 282, Enumeration Date: 25 June 1870, 3. Name: Colling, Peter, Description: 4.

There is a possibility that he and his family were listed in the DuPage Co., Illinois census of 1880 because in that census a Peter Colling was listed whose age was only 1 year off, age 34. That census lists Peter as having married a Regina Schildigen and their children were George, Mary and Margaret. 11
