Charles Colyer handwritten revolutionary war pension applicaton
Note that Charles had no proof of service like muster rolls, since his service was back-woods protection against indians. Likely just like William Colyar who also signed oath of allegience with Charles in Henry County Virginia. Pension app says he served under Captain James Shelton.
During the Revolutionary War most of the Pittsylvania Sheltons were in active official or military service, against Indians, Tories and the British. James Shelton and Eliphas Shelton were militia Captains in Henry County. 2

Charles Granade Colyer April 15, 1910 Obituary
Status: LocatedObituary for Charles Granade Colyer April 15, 1910 in Republican Somerset Ky newspaper. This is entire newspaper to show context and obituary is on page 2. You can use the magnification tool in your adobe acrobat pdf viewer to enlarge it to readable form. he Republican newspaper obit was written by "W.B.H" My guess is that this was James William "Bucky" Hargis, who was born 1836 and a documented Union soldier in the civil war. He and his family must have lived in Allen Farm as renters when a child. Later we find he and his wife on 1910 census in Jugornot area of eastern Pulaski County. All his family is buried at White Lily cemetery a couple miles past the old John Colyer Farm and Clay Hill cemetery where Granade is buried. In regards to the Allen farm mentioned herein: phone interview with area resident 08/18/16 Lyman Alexander, whose grandfather was George Allen, said that the Allen farm was on both sides of current hwy 192 and went from the old Beech Grove Schoolhouse to Pitman Creek where Clay Hill Church is currently located. He stated his grandfather's house was on same side of hwy 192 as beech grove school off current Mayfield Hollow Rd and there was a barn on the opposite side of current hwy 192.

Colyer references in east TN--related to William Colyar
Status: LocatedThe connection as the Callaway Family work makes of William Colyar of Washington County Tn to father John Collier of 1707 has not been supported by proof by me. I have various raw research on Collier in Virginia and list most recent work here. Sorting out all the Colyar, Colyer and Colliers (really same fold many times as names spelled both ways on same documents at times) in Washington County and the John Colyers in particular is difficult. Here is research on John Colyers referred to Callaway Family work and also possible related Colyers in Carter and Unicoi Counties TN that both once were Washington County Tn.
