Seeking information on John and Joseph COLLIER.
" From this location they probably moved to Wharton Township, Fayette County,
Pa, and were there to about 1810. They were not there later, and may have
moved to Shelby County,Ky. A will there of one Michael COLLIER lists heirs
Elisabeth COLLIER,widow of Nathaniel, John C. COLLIER , Joseph COLLIER.
Butthere were other Collier's ther when Michael's family was said to be
in Fayette County,Pa at the time." "John COLLIER was said to have been
born in Virginia (now WV), reared in Kentucky, and returned as a young
man to Maryland where he worked as a wagoneer. He married Mary SLAGLE,
the daughter of John Jacob SLAGLE. Joseph COLLIER was my GGGgrandfather.
Looking for other COLLIER searchers.
