Arthur St. Clair Colyar Sons of The American Revolution
Arthur St. Clair Colyar Sons of The American Revolution
Status: LocatedAlso, in 2006 I discovered that Arthur St. Clair Colyar applied and became a member of the Sons of The American Revolution (SAR) in 1900 at age 82. The application was based on his grandfather on his mother’s side----George Sherrell. Here is a copy of the application in pdf format obtained from the Sons of American Revolution. If Arthur St. Clair Colyar could have proved his grandfather William Colyar having served in the Revolution, it sure seems he would have applied based on his Colyar name rather than his mother’s family name. Perhaps he knew of family tradition of William Colyar having served in the battle of King’s Mountain like his grandfather Sherrell, but could not prove it via pension records since William Colyar died (in 1819) as did perhaps his wife Nancy Ann, prior to the granting of pensions for this service so it was never documented. Beginning in 1818 federal pensions were granted for service only, and soldiers who served in the militia were eligible beginning in 1832. Papers relating to pension applications prior to 1818 were destroyed but many exist for later years. It should also be noted that A.S. Colyar applied to the at an old age of 82 and the application apparently was approved quickly as approval and application date is notated as May 17, 1900. If this was a rush approval, it may be that he was using the most expedient easily documentable method available.

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.
