As I continue to work on the second volume of the genealogy of “The Colliers of Massachusetts,” descended from Thomas and Susannah Collier, who arrived in Hingham, Mass. in 1635, I would ask again for any corrections or new information from family members or researchers. Today I am posting 3 generations (6 – 7 – 8) of a draft genealogy of my particular branch.

I will also be posting this draft on forums for the Kittle, Damon, Hawkins, Samson/Sampson, Hathaway, Drury, Torrey, Pelton and Vinton families, which are related by marriage to the 6th and 7th generation Chesterfield Colliers.

I look forward to corresponding with anyone who can add to our Collier family database.

Gershom Collier “of Boston and Chesterfield, Mass.” (ca. 1771 – 1819)

He was almost certainly a 6th generation descendant of Thomas and Susannah Collier, who arrived in Hingham, Mass. in 1635. Chesterfield traditions from the 19th century state that he was the Gershom Collier who participated in the Boston Tea Party of December 16, 1773, but the Chesterfield man was still a child at that time. He was likely the son or nephew of that individual, who died in Northport, Maine in 1822

Although he probably was born about 1771, in Boston, I have found no birth record, and we may never find one. The Vital Records are very sparse for this period in the city. The earliest mention of him in the records is the marriage to Mary Kittle (various spellings), June 16, 1793, in Boston. Although probably 7 of their 9 children were born in Boston, circa 1795 - 1805, I haven’t found Boston records for any.

In the 1796 Boston City Directory, Gershom is listed as living in Sheaf’s Lane, near the southeast corner of Boston Common, while the business of "Collier and Jacobs, housewrights," was about ¾ of a mile away, in George Street (now Hancock Street), on the north side of Beacon Hill.

As recorded in the 1798, 1800, and 1803 Boston directories, Gershom resided in Belknap Street (now Joy Street), one block west of where the business of "Collier and Jacobs" was located in 1796. There is no separate business address in those years. His abutting neighbors were named Gardner, Jacobs, and Carver -- no street numbers listed. We can identify these neighbors, and the “Jacobs” was his partner of 1796. Gershom purchased property of Jacobs on January 24, 1795 and in the next year or so built a small wooden house that still stands, the address now 36R Joy Court. It is one of the oldest remaining homes on Beacon Hill. (The footprint of the original three-story house was 544 square feet, and the lot was 2440 square feet. Additions have been made to the house over the years. My thanks to Michael Terranova and Daniel Jenkins for detailed research and photos of the house.)

On December 30, 1805 Gershom sold the property to William Daniels for $2,500. At about this time the family removed to Chesterfield, Hampshire County, Massachusetts, where “Colliers” had lived for at least 20 years. Per History and Genealogy of the Families of Chesterfield, Massachusetts, page 101 ff. " Gershom Collier, b. in Boston, d. 16 Apr, 1819, m. in Boston, 16 June 1793, Mary Kittell. The oldest children were born in Boston. He came here [Chesterfield] about 1805. His estate consisted of 30 acres of land, a sawmill, a gristmill and other buildings valued at 750 pounds which he willed to his wife, Mary. She died 4 Dec. 1837, ae. 68. Children..."

Birth -- No birth record located. Chesterfield History, page 101, states born in Boston, but no source given. The only federal census in which Gershom appears, the 1810 census of Chesterfield, indicates that both he and his wife were born between 1766 and 1784. Their marriage in 1793 places the dates early in that period. Mary was aged 68 when she died in 1837. (I think she was probably the daughter of John “Kettell” and Katherine Souther, born in Charlestown, Mass. May 17, 1769, but there are no family records to prove this identification.)

Marriage -- Boston Marriage Records. Married June 16, 1793 in Boston by Rev. Samuel West. (In 1789 and later, Rev. West's home was in Nassau St, and he was pastor of the Hollis Street Church from 1789 to 1808. The church was founded about 1732, located at the corner of Hollis Street and (now) Tremont Street, near where the Wang Center is now. The original church burned on April 24, 1787, and in 1788 a new Bulfinch designed building was erected. Nassau Street seems to have been the name of the street intersecting Hollis near the church, and is so marked in a map in Bulfinch's Boston 1787-1808, Harold & James Kirker, 1964.

Marriage -- Duplicate of above, in Records of the Hollis Street Church, Boston, 1732-1997, Robert J. Dunkle and Ann S. Lainhart, NEHGS, 1998, pages 47 and 121.

Death -- For Gershom’s death, see Chesterfield History and Genealogy, page 101. Also seen in Holbrook Research microfiche of town records. No age given in either source. Hampshire County probate records offer little from a genealogical perspective. Widow Mary Collier’s death is recorded in the same sources, and a notice of her death was printed in a Boston newspaper of December 30, 1837, where she and Gershom were called “formerly of Boston.”
