Neal Colyer driving buggy on Strawberry rd, Somerset Ky in front of what was once the Waddle/Richards cabin. Per interview with son, Harold Colyer in Aug 2015, he confirmed that driver looked like his father. Per Harold Colyer 08/19/16, wagons had steel bands around the wheels and his dad when traveling strawberry rd and other areas near streams, the roads often forded creeks to get the wood wheels and spokes wet to cause swelling to help keep the steel bands that were like the tires of a wagon wheel tight to the wood wheel so they would not become loose and fall off.

|229||Sam Colyer house, Somerset Ky|
House where Sam Colyer family lived. Sam lived there until about 1967. House stood at corner of Hope Ave and Old Monticello Street in Somerset Ky. House was torn down about 2005 when new Monticello road was built. Since the 1920 census shows the family living on College Street, 1930 census shows family living in this house on Monticello St., sometime before 1930 the family moved here. Likely after 1926 when 15 year old son Lance died of pneumonia. Both census show Sam's mother, Louisa, living with the family. When Sam's grand-daughter Janet Avera Claunch and her husband Sonny Claunch, first moved back to Somerset from Dayton Ohio in early 1970's, they lived in this house according to Janet.

|245||Soule's Chapel Church|
Status: LocatedPhoto of Soule's Chapel Church new homestead of John Colyer and his son Charles Granade Colyer. This is where family may have gone to church and where John Colyer, son of William Colyar and father of Charles Granade Colyer, is buried. See historic write up about Souleís chapel under John Colyer. It is reported by June Avera that Charles Grenade Colyer was initially buried there, but after a dispute with Louisa Jane, his wife and the church, she reportedly had him exhumed and moved to the Clay Hill Baptist Church cemetery, where his grave is today. However, from reading the obituary of Charles Grenade Colyer in the Somerset Republican newspaper referenced above, this story must be erroneous since the paper says he was originally buried in Clay Hill Cemetery.
