|116||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. But see lawsuit appeals case decided after John Colyer death in 1859 on this site under Cyrenius Wait, that refers to 150 acre tract and 50 acre tract. See also above under John Colyer 1781 where one month before death , John purchases from father in law estate 50 acres on Buck Creek.

|129||1851 Pulaski County KY tax records people with last name beginning with "C".|
Shows land held by John Colyer at death in 1851. Of the 300 acres on Pitman Creek, 200 were sold with the homeplace in 1865 by heirs to Andrew Warren. 150 acres on Cumberland River, suspected to be added to by deed in July 1851 from Purvis estate of 50 acres. This 150 + 50 suspected to be the subject of Ky court of appeals law suit on this site under Cyrenius Wait, who had coal mines in the area. Another interesting thing, is that Bluford Colyer in Buck Creek area/Jugornot does not show in tax records in 1851 even though deed records show land there.

Charles Granade Colyer's father, John had died 1851. Apparently, the real property passed outside probate under KY law at the time for intestate decedents. Evidenced by final estate settlement showing no real property sales by estate. Here, C.Granade Colyer's 1/17 undivided share as child is sold for $100 go Cyrenius Wait. Later, the John Colyer heirs file lawsuit against Cyrenius Wait to be able to sell all real property and slaves of John Colyer about 1859 and win.
