||1850 Pulaski County KY census John Colyer|
Shows John Colyer, wife Lydia (27 years younger) and children including Charles Granade Colyer. Interesting to see that land value totaled $1400. IF this was solely the 200 acre farm at Pitman Creek and hwy 192, it is interesting to see the dire effects of the civil war such that by 1865 when family sells the farm, it only brings $750 per deed on this website.
