DS 614 005.jpg

Jonah Collins is a fictional character who has been referenced, but never seen, on the original 1960s Gothic soap opera Dark Shadows. Jonah's tombstone was seen in episode 614 in 1968.

Jonah Collins was born in 1840, presumably in Collinsport, Maine and died on June 15th, 1863 at the age of twenty-three. He was buried at Eagle Hill Cemetery, very close to the Collins family mausoleum.

In 1968, Roger Collins and Elizabeth Collins Stoddard visited the cemetery and paused briefly to take note of Jonah's grave. Elizabeth, already feeling excessively maudlin at the time, made a comment about all of the lives that had been left unfulfilled. She believed that the dead were envious of the living.
