|Documents||Callaway Family.pdf 1925 by Mrs. A.E. Hart|
The Callaway Family.pdf by Mrs. A.E. Hart. This document is from microfilm in LDS library of research done about 1925. In this excerpt of this work, is information on Colyer family in Virginia. In particular references and information on William Colyar of Washington County Tennessee.
|Calloway family work by Mrs. A.E. Hart updated 1934|
Here is an updated version of the Calloway family work by Mrs. A.E. Hart concerning the Colyer family that was done in 1934 and much more information. In particular more references and information on William Colyar of Washington County Tennessee. This work claims that William Colyar took the oath of allegiance with his brothers John, Thomas and Charles in Henry County VA in 1777. Her work also implicates that there are other brothers to these of James and Richard. I have doubts. See that James and Richard do not sign Henry County VA oath of allegience.
Mentions John Colyer of 1707 and children including Mary not in his Will, as well as info on son Thomas Collier(Colyer)

|John Collier info born 1744|
This is images of notes found in VA library of S. Bassett 1880 research compiled from french notes. Shows where A.E. Hart got info on Major John cCollier/Colliar/Colyer of born 1744 of having a wood leg on page 530 of notes. This also a source for associating John Colyer born 1744 with John Collier of Porto Bello plantation
|Map of possible William Colyar father John Colliar migration|
Map shows possible location of father of William Colyar, John Colliar first shows up near Lexington VA. Later a John Collier thought to be related to William, likely brother John born 1744 , shows up in Henry county VA with 336 acres. Map shows where William meets his wife, Nancy Ann St Clair, then settles on Nolichucky river in TN.
|John Colliar and William Colyar migration|
Article, see page 2, discussing migration habits of the time that may tie in to location of John Colliar in Lexington VA, then sons in Henry County VA, then down the "indian trail" to eventually, William settling further toward cumberland gap in modern day Erwin TN
|John Colliar deed near current day Lexington VA|
This deed shows a John Colliar deed on bufuloe creek VA. Interesting because name spelled with an "a" and William Colyar and his brothers later take the unusual spelling of Coly"a"r similar. Don't have proof this John Colliar on Buffuloe creek (Lexington VA) is father of William and his brothers, nor that this land is owned by one and the same person designated as John Collier born 1707. This could be the John Collier that shows up in Chalkley's with wife Sisley and son Moses leaving 400 acres to them in will/estate.

|John Collier/Colyer deed showing wife named Sisely|
This is from Chaulkley's virginia history and it appears to be connected to the land shown in another deed on this site owned by a John Colliar. This land was on Buffalo creek which is near current day Lexington VA. It seems to show what might be an identification of the John Collier in earlier land deed to be one who had a wife named Sisely.
