Looking for any information on the parentage of John E Collier, born 1829 in Sussex County, Va. I believe his mother was Elizabeth, already widowed in the 1830 census in Sussex County. 1 male <5 and two females, 1<5 and 1<14, also in the household. I can not locate Elizabeth in the 1840 census, and believe she may have remarried. I have no leads on a father. Maybe someone has info on a Collier male, born approx 1800, died 1829/30 in Sussex. I have noticed a few candidates for Collier grandparents in the early 1800s Sussex census records, as well.
John E Collier, ultimately, wound up in Richmond, married with 2 daughters by 1860. His first daughter was named Elizabeth. He died in a Civil War battle in 1862.
Are there any birth, marriage, death indexes from Sussex that would cover that time period?
Any help would be appreciated.
