1804-1810 Pulaski County Tax Records
Shows Samuel Blevins in 1804, on Buck Creek Pulaski County KY, believed to be father of Polly Blevins, who Pulaski County Court records in 1806 show married a John Colyer. This file is evidence that the John Colyer that Polly Blevins married in 1806 (reported father Samuel Blevins) is the John Colyer born 1781. HOWEVER, ALL IS NOT WHAT IT SEEMS AND ASSUMED. FURTHER INFO ON THIS SITE PROVIDED BY BLEVINS FAMILY RESEARCHERS SHOWS THAT "MARY" BLEVINS , DAUGHTER OF SAMUEL BLEVINS, DIED IN LOUISVILLE KY IN 1855 AND THAT CENSUS OF 1850 SHOWS MARRIED TO A JOHN COLYEAR. WE DON'T KNOW WHO THIS JOHN COLYEAR(COLYER) WAS, BUT EVIDENTLY NO RELATION TO JOHN COLYER BORN 1781 OF PULASKI COUNTY. The other John Colyer on tax records and later designated as "Junior", is beleived to be John Colyer Jr. born 1744, whom most of his life believed to live near Charles Colyer, baby brother, who bailed John out of court in Jonesboro TN prior to 1805 when Charles moved to Pulaski County Ky. He shows up in tax records here near Charles and later in Rockcastle County KY where Charles later moved. Without death record of Mary Colyer from Jefferson County KY in 1855 it would have been easy to Conclude that John Colyer born 1781 married Polly Blevins , since we know from pension records on John Colyer Jr. born 1744, he was long married to Grizelda Taylor in 1806. We have information that John Colyer Jr 1744 had son named John, but that he died in Rockcastle County ky in 1833 so not the Jefferson County Ky John Colyear. Further, we have information on a John Collier from Randolph Cty NC who moved to Greene County Tn but died there as did his son John...died in Greene County TN. So mystery continues as to who the Louisville John Colyear was descended from. Could he be descended from John Colyear in Franklin Cty IN who had Revolutionary pension file ?
The 1810 tax records shows Bluford Colyer, so he may have been born before 1809
