COLLIER family
Posted by: Brian Guder (ID *****6235) Date: October 24, 2003 at 13:49:05

I am a descendant of John "jaybird" Collier1815- (c1895?) of this County.

i am trying to nail down the COLLIER family and am interested specifically in the four brothers and one sister (grand-children of John COLLIER and Sisley HALL of Botetourt County VA circa 1750) who settled in this county during its formative years) I believe these five siblings are the children of John Collier and Jane Elder, the youngest son of the above John and Sisley.
The five in question are Anna (married to Thomas Allen), James, Ambrose, Meshack, and John.

They are all present in Lawrence Co. prior to 1820 but only James is a taxpaying landowner in 1815 (the year my antcedant was born there. we believe he is the lineage I need to follow. James COLLIER was apparently a Justice of the Peace in Lawrence County circa 1815 and married many couples... including but not limited to his own brothers neices and nephews . he may also have had a son also named james (jr.) who may also be the jsames Collier reputed to be the father of my great great great grandfather John "jaybird".
I do know this family spent sometime prior to Ohio in Floyd Co. KY.
