209 Clyde was working in Indianapolis, In. because of a transfer and commuting home to Dayton, Oh. each weekend. He fell asleep at the wheel and struck the rear end of a wrecker that had just pulled a semi out of a ditch. It was travelling about 35 MPH, he was travelling at 70 MPH, but was seen slumped over the steering wheel as someone passed him just before he crashed. He died an hour later at the Straughn, In. hospital.
One of the last thing he did was purchase an "Indy 500" tee shirt for his only grandson, Dan Perkins. It was on the seat beside him when he was found.

Mildred and Clyde are third cousins thought they said they didn't know it when they married. They had a rather rough beginning. They divorced when Jean was only a baby and were separated for almost a year. They remarried in 1939 and always used their first anniversary date because of Jean's birthday.

210 Mildred and Clyde were divorced after about 18 months of marriage. They remarried a year later, keeping their original anniversary date because of the birth of their daughter Jean. Clyde Estel Colyer

Capt. S.M. Boone' Venture.
Somerset, KY., March 1 (special)--The intitial number of the Pulaski County Enterprise, a thoroughly Democratic paper, appeared this morning. It presents a very neat appearance, and its matter is bright and spicy. Capt. S.M. Boone and C.E. Colyer, its editors, are both popular and staunch Democrats, and it is expected that they will do good work toward united the badly demoralized Democracy of Pulaski. Capt. Boone has made a number of ventures in journalism, and has always retired with additional laurels. Cy. E. Colyer is a rising young lawyer, with plenty of ability and an endless number of relatives and friends.

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.

Harold Andrew Colyer
243 Based on conversations with Harold, he attended Strawberry one room school house through 5th grade, before having to start to work. By 16, or so he left for Indiana working for his Uncle on a farm and then Ohio Frigidare factory and then became a building contractor. He returned to Somerset Ky in the 1960's and continued building many houses and small buildings including the 192 Market in Ruth Ky. He developed small neighborhood of houses on Strawberry Rd, Somerset. He worked several years after retiring from construction managing the farm north of Somerset for a local physician and her family as he continued assembling his own 350 acre farm and clearing it for a cattle operation in his retirement years.

Harold could tell a story like no one else with unique Appalachian Ky sayings and perfectly timed humor. For an opportunity to jump at "well I jumped on that like a hot rock". For a petite lady, "well you ain't no bigger than a bar of soap".

244 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.

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.

247 Facebook Robert Sears, of Somerset 01/14/2020:
"Do any of you remember Harold Colyer that lived at East Somerset who recorded music on an old machine that made disc recordings? I have a very treasured 78 he made of a quartet made up of my Uncle Leonard Sears, Harold's wife, Pearl, Walter Clines, and my Grandpa, Jim Arthur Sears with Leonard's wife on the piano. He also made a record of my cousin, Wilson at age 3 singing Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. I have seen pictures of a machine like Mr. Colyer had, but I have never actually seen one up close."

248 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.
