206 Debbie Meece Sears 03/03/2015: I just talked to Peanut's daughter. There was 3 other girls.Edith who lived in Cinn. and later moved to Florida, Ardie who always lived in Cinn. and Addie who also lived in Cinn. She said her uncle "cracker Jack" learned to be a chef while in the Navy and was the chef at the Shriners restaurant in Cinn. Edith Colyer
207 Dot Curtis recalled that Edith was the most beautiful woman she had ever known. She recalled seeing Edith leave the house on South Central and what beautiful legs she had and how gracefully she carried herself. At the same time, she recalled that Edith was so un-pretentious in spite of her beauty, that made all the more appealing.

Max Lay, an nephew by marriage to Edith's sister's daughter, Edith Bradley Chestnut, recalled that his view was that the two most beautiful women to ever come from Somerset were Edith Colyer Curtis and Edith Bradley Chestnut.

hese are the burials added to the Colyer Family Cemetery in Bronston by D&L. The above are their postings except Colyer, George Glenn. The Pulaski County Cemetery Records, Volume 1. published by the Pulaski Co. Historical Society gives the location as: "N Hwy 27 - 70". Hwy 70 crosses Hwy 27 at Eubank, KY. Going east on Hwy 70 from Eubank you come to the Brown-Colyer Road on the left before reaching Hwy 39. I believe the Colyer Family Cemetery is or has been near the Brown-Colyer Road. I plan to search for the cemetery in this area in the near future and will post further information if I confirm the cemetery is not in the Bronston community.

E.B. Colyer is considered to be Elizabeth Barron that married William H. Colyer on 27 April 1853 at the residence of Evan E. Barron. Evan was the father of Elizabeth. Her mother was Jemima Hicks. Evan and Jemima married in Pulaski Co. KY 16 June 1834. Consent was by her father Barley Hicks.

Consent for the marriage of Elizabeth and William H. was by Humphrey Colyer and witnesses were James Barron and Elizabeth Colyer. Humphrey and Marcy Colyer were the parents of William H. Colyer

William H. and Elizabeth Barron Colyer are the parents of Jemima Frances Colyer Mercer.

Siblings of Elizabeth on the 1850 census were: James, Susan, William, Abigal, Sarah and Martha.

220 Harold works as contractor and spend two years working on restoration of the Brown-Lanier House on Mills Springs battlefield historic site near Monticello Ky. Harold Colyer
221 Per phone interview 9/6/2013, Harold left Somerset area as youngster and moved to Dayton Ohio and worked until retirement in about 1976. He moved back to Somerset after retirement working in construction business as builder/contractor. Harold said he built the cinder-block Hwy 192 Market in the late 1970's for Bob Ridner, whose mother was postmaster at Ruth Ky on Old Ruth Rd store.

Harold said he also built the brick house next to the store currently owned by Gary Ridner.

Harold said he remembers the original Ruth store that stood about 200 feet away from Pitman creek on the opposide side of the road from where other Ruth stores and 192 Mkt stands.

Harold remembers his Uncld Ad Colyer running the old Ruth Store. He also remembers his Uncle Charlie Colyer who had house on bluff overlooking Pitman Creek about opposite Clay Hill Church.

Harold remembers the old Hwy 192 bridge as a one-lane wood on top of steel structure. He said he had a mule whose leg fell through the wood bridge and broke it's leg.

He remembers "Mosey Warren" living in house at Pitman creek and hwy 192 who always owned a bulldog.

Harold said he had a Uncle Wesley Colyer who was a pastor at Clay Hill Baptist Church.

When interviewing Harold Colyer, he said he never knew his grandfather, Lin, as he had passed away before Harold was born. He did not know his grandfathers full name, only "Lin". Harold did not know if his father had a middle name.

223 Don White, newspaper columnist somerset, via Pulaski County Facebook group:

corner of E.Mt Vernon St. and Carroll Street

"Fred Bullock's store." I think it was after Lee Anderson sold it that a Mr. Johnson had it for a while. Lee had a cute-as-a button daughter named Lana and they lived in the house that still stands just west of the store. The Johnsons lived in a two-story white frame home on Carroll Street, maybe two doors off East 80 on the right. They had a really pretty blonde daughter named Patricia.Always wondered what became of her. You might notice that pre-teen me paid more attention to the store keeper's daughters than to anything else about the business. I do recall it being a Pure Oil station with two old-fashioned tall pumps. Directly across the street was Colyer's Grocery, operated out of the basement of Harold and Pearl Colyer, our landlords until mom bought the property next door to the Colyer house....which is still there. Maybe 100 feet further west on 80 sat the larger general merchandise store operated by the Lovett brothers...who hailed from Stearns and lived above the store.

224 Somerset Commonwealth Journal 09/18/2016 by Don White:

"....Things didn't get a whole lot better when we moved some 6 miles away, and for $25 per month, rented a place
from Harold and Pearl, who lived next door in a house that didn't need painting and wasn't in danger of collapsing.
I don?t think they ever had children, but they did, by golly, have a TV that was way bigger than Emma?s.
It?s always been my observation that people who don?t have kids can tolerate having them around only for brief periods of time. And only then if the kids are quiet and keep their feet off the furniture.
They?re also often more obsessed with making money.
That all worked out well for me.
Mom would hand me the rent money, tucked away in an envelope, and watch from the porch to make sure I didn't drop it on my way to make delivery.
Going once a month on a Wednesday, always at 6:50 p.m., was my idea.
That?s when Wagon
Train came on and I could usually count on being invited to stay and watch an entire episode.
Pearl always answered the door, and on those times she hesitated, I opened the envelope just enough for her to smell the twenty and five dollar bills inside.
All good things must come to an end, how- ever.
As my monthly adventure did when Mom bought the place for $2,000.
I knew being under that kind of debt meant never having a TV of our own would be mission impossible.

Highway Robbery

On Saturday night the 13th inst., while James L. Colyer was returning to his home in the upper part of our county, from Mount Vernon, was attacked by four men in disguise coming from the bushes on the side of the public road with drawn weapons, who stopped his horse and first demanded his arms, Colyer, although a brave man, seeing that he was overpowered gave up his pistol which was returned to him after the robbers had drawn the loads; they then demanded
his money which hthey got, amounting to the sum of $100, and also his watch, which they examined and threw against a tree, it being of small value.

Mr. Colyer has been for some time past a deputy Sheriff of our county, is a clever gentleman and makes a clever and vigilant officer.

He may have been the father of Rev. Stephen Collier and Rev. Richard Collier,, ministers in the Baptist Church, who were intimate friends and close relatives of Mrs. Hart's (author of Richard Calloway Family, Kansas City Library) family. She was never able to establish for sure if Stephen and Richard were James' sons and therefore cousins of her grandfather, John Colyer, Jr. but they often visited their family.

from Mrs. Jean Colyer Grumbling site:
Came to Madison Co. Ky. before 1792. He is listed in that year as a citizen of Madison Co. Two years later in May and June of 1794 he was sent to the frontiers of Lincoln Co. to guard against Indians and for two months of service he was paid a sum slightly more than $10 as compensation. the nuncupative will of James was proved, December 22, 1805 in Madison Co., Ky. the will was committed to writing by James Colyer, Jr. and showed money deposited for the benefit of his children. He may have been the father of Rev. Stephen Collier and Rev.

238 Colyer v. Hyden, &c.


94 Ky. 180; 21 S.W. 868; 1893 Ky. LEXIS 24

March 16, 1893, Decided


DISPOSITION: Judgment reversed, with directions.


There was a sufficient delivery of the deeds. (Bell v. Farmers' Bank, 11 Bush 39; 5 Am. & Eng. Enc. of Law, p. 448, note 4.)


The deeds were properly set aside. They were procured by undue influence, were never delivered, and were without consideration to uphold them.





A few weeks before his death, Alex. Colyer, who was quite old and decrepit, executed three deeds for certain lands of which he was the owner, in two of which the appellant, who was his grandson, was alone the designated grantee; in the other the appellant, jointly with Susannah Colyer, his step-daughter, and L. R. Colyer, a son, were the grantees named. The validity of these conveyances was assailed by the other children of the deceased--the appellees here-- [*181] by reason of the mental inability of the grantor, the exercise of undue influence over him, and because the alleged conveyances were never delivered to the grantees in the life-time of the [***2] grantor. The lower court upheld one of the deeds--that to the appellant for the home place of some seventy acres--and set aside the other two.

We think there can be no question of the correctness of the judgment sustaining the first-named deed. The old man had contracted in writing with his grandson some time in 1888 to the effect that he would give him the home place, provided he would come home from the West and live with him, and care for him and his wife. They were both old and feeble, and needed his help. The grandson did so, and shortly before his death the grantor had the deputy clerk to prepare the deed, which he executed in pursuance of the original contract, and delivered to the draftsman, who proves he delivered it to the appellant in a few days thereafter.

There appears to have been no lack of capacity to make the deeds, and no evidence of the exercise of undue influence in their procurement. We think, too, that there was a legal delivery of the deed for the twenty-five acre tract to the appellant. It was signed and acknowledged by the old man and his wife, and delivered to the draftsman, the deputy clerk, for the grantee, and delivered to and accepted by him in some [***3] three or four weeks thereafter, though after the death of the grantor.

It is now fully settled that a deed may be delivered to a third person for the grantee, and if subsequently [*182] assented to by the grantee it will be as good a delivery as if it had been made directly to him. (Fonda v. Van Horne, 15 Wend. 633.)

With respect to the joint deed for the two hundred acre tract, the state of case is different. After its preparation and acknowledgment, the grantor handed it to his wife, and told her to put it away, or to take care of it. There was no delivery of it to any of the grantees, or to any one for them, until after the grantor's death, when his wife gave it to the husband of one of the grantees. We think there was no delivery of this deed so as to pass the estate. It seems to have been the intention of the grantor to keep control over the instrument until fully determined whether ultimately to deliver it.

It may be inferred that because he had retained a life estate in the property, he thought its immediate delivery would be of no service to the grantees, and that his intention is clear that they should have the property at his death. And yet, the fact [***4] remains, he did not deliver it, or authorize or direct its delivery, and can not, therefore, be said to have divested himself of the title to the estate. In Maynard v. Maynard, 10 Mass. 456, the deed was executed with the usual formalities and recorded, and "the grantor requested the witness to keep the deed until it was called for." The grantee died; the grantor called for and cancelled it. The court said it was clear that no title passed. "The only reason why it did not pass," said the court, "was that the deed was not delivered as the deed of the grantor for the use of the grantee."

[*183] There appears to have been no error in setting off the appellant's claim against the estate by the one-half of his [**869] note. The result reached by the chancellor seems just and proper.

Because of the error indicated the judgment is reversed, with directions to proceed as herein determined.

Highway Robbery

On Saturday night the 13th inst., while James L. Colyer was returning to his
home in the upper part of our county, from Mount Vernon, was attacked by four
men in disguise coming from the bushes on the side of the public road with
drawn weapons, who stopped his horse and first demanded his arms, Colyer,
although a brave man, seeing that he was overpowered gave up his pistol which
was returned to him after the robbers had drawn the loads; they then demanded
his money which hthey got, amounting to the sum of $100, and also his watch,
which they examined and threw against a tree, it being of small value.

Mr. Colyer has been for some time past a deputy Sheriff of our county, is a
clever gentleman and makes a clever and vigilant officer. 
James Lindsay Colyer
247 James was born about 1858 in Pulaski County, Kentucky. The son of St. Clair & Elizabeth (Morgan) Colyer.

In the 1860, 1870, & 1880 Census of Somerset, Pulaski County, Kentucky James lives at home with his parents. In 1870, at the age of 12 James is listed as woking on the farm. In the 1880 Census James, along with his 2 older brothers, John W. & John R., are all listed as school teachers.

On December 15, 1887 in Pulaski County James married Fannie L. Owens.

In 1892 James was elected Mayor of Somerset. He served as Mayor for the years of 1892, 1893, & 1894.

In the 1900 Census James-40 is living with his wife Fanny-37 and children Varnum-13, Mabel-8, Virginia-5 & Martha-4 in Bourbon, Pulaski County, Kentucky. James is listed as a Lawyer and Fanny is listed as having had 4 children by 1900, all 4 in home.

Apparently there was a family tragedy between 1900 & 1910. In the 1910 Census of Bourbon, Pulaski County, Kentucky Mabel & Virginia are living with their Grandmother Eliza Owens. James & Varnon I cannot find in the Census of 1910, nor Fannie.

In 1920 James can be found in the Census of Somerset, Pulaski County, Kentucky. He is living on Monticello Street with his daughter, Virginia, and her husband, Clifford Jasper. James is listed as a widower and his occupation is Lawyer in General Practice.

In 1930 James can be found in the Census of Pulaski County, Kentucky, on Shafter Road. Living with his daughter Mabel, and her husband, Claude Jasper. James is listed as a 73 year old widower with no occupation.

Varnum is actually Varnon Thomas, he registered for the WW1 draft in Rio Arriba County, New Mexico, listed as a Farmer/Sheep Grower, born October 28, 1888, he eventually came back to Pulaski County, Varrnon died on January 25, 1952 in Pulaski County
