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.

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.
