|511||William Colyar related Power Attorney Alexander Colyar|
Status: LocatedI had searched for gravesite of William Colyar and his wife, Nancy Ann in east Tennessee. It is reported that he died in 1819. However, a power of attorney made by Alexander Colyar of Winchester TN (Father of Arthur St. Claire Colyer) appointing his son, George Thompson Colyer, as power of attorney recorded in Pulaski County Ky, (here in faster loading djvu format) shows that William and his wife Nancy lived in Pulaski County KY at the time of their death The power of attorney in 1839 (year of Nancy Agnes Annís death) was to collect Alexanderís share of estate. Since only son I know of in Pulaski County Ky is John Colyer, I suppose that William and Nancy, must have moved to live with John Colyer of Pulaski County Ky so John could care for them in their elder years. This is supported by the 1830 U.S. Census that shows a female age 60-70 years old living with John. Johnís mother Agnes Nancy Ann St. Clair Colyar would have been 70 years old in 1830. His father, William, died in 1819 but his mother did not die until 1839. The elderly lady living in the household would not be John mother-in-law, Mrs. Purvis, as both of Johnís parents-in-law were living at the time with Old Mr. Purvis not dying until 1840 or so and Old Mrs. Purvis not until 1852. This indicates that perhaps John Colyer was the closest son capable of financially being able to care for his parents in later years. The power of attorney indicates that both William and Nancy Colyar died in Pulaski County KY. My guess is that they may be buried in some of the unmarked graves in the Jugornot region of Pulaski County as this is where John Colyer had property at Buck Creek on the Cumberland River before moving to the Pittman Creek property in Ruth Kentucky area in 1842.
