I'm not related. The Colley family was in Johnson, St Francis Co AR 1850 census. Can't help with death dates, some of the children are buried Gause Cemetery in Milam county.

John's middle initial was W on the 1880 census says parents b. VA. He was residing with the Pitts' family in St Francis Co AR 1860 census where they probably married.
