||1873 Pulaski County Ky Property Tax Record|
Colyers in east Somerset area
||1874 Pulaski County Property Tax Colyers|
Various Colyer property East Pulaski County Pitman Creek etc . Notice that Bluford(Buford) and Rebecca Colyer are next to the Haynes property that likely is current day Haynes Cemetery in Jugornot area of Pulaski County in Jugornot Hollow. Notice that on this 1874 list, it shows Charles Colyer (same as 1873 showing as John G Colyer which encourages my guess that his full name was Charles John Granade Colyer). Also note Alexander Colyer with about 500 acres that I guess is land currently all woods that is owned next to old Colyer/Warren Farm on Pitman Creek) later records shows next to Warren and Allen farm(current at Pitman creek and hwy 192) and next to Keeny property reflected on Civil War Map of Burnside this website.

shows James "Alexander" Colyer with property next to James Allen and Andrew Warren (the old John Colyer property per deed on this website) and Lindsey Colyer (evidently Lindsey Robert Colyer since next to in law Richardson)
