John Colyer grave
Photo of gravestone of John Colyer in Soule's Chapel cemetery. (updated photo in 2004) The stone very difficult to read in 2004 says this the best I can make it out "

In Memory of
John Colyer
Was born in Virginia in
Year of Our Lord 1781
Was married in 1818 _____
Moved Pulaski County
KY in the year of our Lord
1808. __ was a member
of ____ ____ ___ years
Died August _, 1851
Note that it says that John Colyer was born in Virginia. So it appears that William Colyar of Washington County TN migrated to banks of Nolichucky after 1781 but before 1790 for that is when he shows up there in Washington county TN on tax lists in 1790. Alternatively, William and his wife Agnes Nancy Ann Sinclair could have gone back to her parentís home in Sinclair Bottom Virginia for birth of John. Tennessee was new settlement at the time. See last page of write up on Grenade Colyer from files of Dean Hunter that has copy of info on Virginia history references to Colyers. It shows a William Collier who was said to be a trapper and hunter. Also, note that the obituary of Charles Granade Colyer below, says that John Colyer was first married to a miss Sinclair rather than a Martha Minus. This is interesting given the Sinclair connection from John's father. It may however be erroneous based upon research done by descendant of Martha Minus and John Colyer......Mr. John Parsons of Tullahoma TN. Perhaps the writer of the obituary had confused Mr. John Colyer's mother maiden name with that of his first wife, as other earlier sources also state that John Colyerís first wife was a lady named Minus---see letter from Dr. Welby Colyer above that gives Minus as the first wife name. Later DNA research on Colyer men, connect one John Colyer Jr., son of this John Colyer born 1781, the son being the one that settled in the Bronston KY area, to the other John Colyer 1781 descendants. This Bronston KY John Colyer death record says his mother was named POLLY. This discredits the name of first wife of John Colyer 1781 being Martha Minus. It was concluded that her name must have really been Polly Sinclair or St. Clair. See link to inventory of Soule's Chapel cemetery here:
