1958 Kentucky Highway Dept map of hwy192 improvements
Shows John Colyer log house (formerly Langdon, later Warren property) and how road of hwy 192 changed and items located around it. Note that part of land on same side of road as log house that was transferred to William H Warren from Andrew in 1884 was transferred out of family and not part of current 200 acre farm. This part is that which currently has hwy 192 market on it and farm behind market. Also it looks like part of Andrew Warren property across road that went to Joe Warren that has lumber mill on it in this map was sold off for house lots by 1960's or so. So other land was added to original John Colyer farm to make it 200 acres when sold in 2009. Likely that of woods along Clay Hill Rd purchased by Mathew Warren from court ordered sale of heirs of Alexander Colyer.

41st U.S. Congressional Record--Pulaski County election contested
41st U.S. Congressional Record--Pulaski County election contested
Congressional candidate Barnes (of President Grant's party--Republican) contests the election of Democrat Adams (pro-south) from the south-central district of Kentucky including Pulaski County. Asserts that election fraud by illegal voters voting for Adams including those that fought in Rebel army for South. Mentions CG Colyer (Charles Granade Colyer) as one of those. These are depositions. Also the voting record of Pulaski County showing in fact CG Colyer voted for Adams.

During civil war, Abraham Lincoln was a Republican and the northern industrial / wallstreet Republican's led vs the southern agricultural slave holders. Thus post civil war, the southerner tended to be democratic party opposed to Lincoln etc. Colyer family was democrats, Curtis (from NY) were Republican. This did not prevent the Republican northerner (including Curtis' from being prejudiced against blacks in re: equal rights....just as Lincoln did not advocate equal rights for blacks.)

Southern White Democrats Face End of Era in Congress
By NAFTALI BENDAVID

For decades, Democrats dominated the South, a legacy of the Civil War era. But in the 1980s white Southerners began migrating to the GOP as a more comfortable philosophical home. Those who stayed Democratic formed a bridge between the two parties. Today, they are pushing hard for a compromise deal to cut the deficit.

Rep. Heath Shuler (D., N.C.), a Blue Dog Democrat retiring this year, said it would be harder to solve problems as these centrists disappear. "If you look at anything that has a hope of bringing members of Congress together, it has been Blue Dog moderate Democrats who have been able to build the bridge between the parties," he said.
