In Response To: COLLIER (Linda Leatherwood)
While cleaning out some old files, I ran across this message, below. The email address for Maggie is no longer good, and I have no idea how old this is, but just in case this is your family, and you can glean some information from Maggie's notes, I thought I would send this on to you, or anyone else interested in the Collier family. - Karyn

I'm trying to find out anything I can about my family from Sidney, IA and 1 of my Great Uncles move to Tabor, IA. But they were all form Sidney and I can't find much of anything on them except for a few old records from the museum a couple of years ago.
My Great Grandfather was John Collier, he had 3 brothers and 1 sister. Joe, Jim, William, Sarah. Their father owned farms around Sidney. John had a large livery stable in town that I think burned in 1896. Then they built the water tower were his stable was.
One of the brothers became a dentist and one had a bakery next to the water tower.
My Grandma who was John's daughter, told me this much. She was born in Sidney. Bessie Bell Collier. My father who was Bessie Bell's son was my father. I can't find anything in the census records or anyplace else on them.
