|248||DNA test of Harold Andrew Colyer and Curtis Colyer match report|
Harold Andrew Colyer is a documented descendant (great great grandson) of John Colyer born 1781. Curtis Colyer is a documented descendant (great great grandson) of John Colyer born 1815 who lived in Bronston Ky. This DNA test shows that John Colyer born 1815 is son of John Colyer born 1781.
This DNA test results in several conclusions. First, the Bronston KY area Colyers are related via John Colyer born 1781 to the Jugornot area of Somerset KY Colyers. Second, based on death record of John Colyer born 1815, that the first wife of John Colyer born 1781 was Polly Sinclair, NOT Martha Minus.
Although the John Colyer born 1815 death record only states the mother's first name, it is this researcher's conclusion, that the disclosure of her last name in the newspaper obituary of John Colyer born 1781 son, Charles Granade Colyer, as Sinclair, provides for her full name as Polly Sinclair.
