I am confused! I have information that Stephen Collier was a Presbyterian minister born in VA. He wed a Hannah Elkins. Their daughter Elizabeth was born in VA in 1800. Her family moved to Kentucky when she was very young. It was there, in 1815, that she wed Aquilla Smith. They ended up in Madison Co., Iowa.

The 1872 minutes of the Cumberland River Association of Baptists in Kentucky included an obituary for Elder Stephen Collier who was born June 10, 1772 in Tennessee and died May 1844 in Kentucky. A Smith family history states that his daughter Elizabeth Collier, who married Aquilla Smith was born 1800 in VA. If Elizabeth was born in VA, it makes more sense to me that her father Stephen would have been born in VA also, rather than TN which is further west. What is your source for the birthplace of Stephen?
From what I have been told, this family had a long association with the Baptist church. I visited Winterset, IA this past summer and met distant cousins who have done considerable research on the Smith family. Aquilla & Elizabeth and several of their descendants are buried at the Primitive Baptist Church, a typical midwestern country church, which sits on the outskirts of town.
Also, we are not sure of Stephen's wife's name. Some have thought Hannah, others Nancy. Do you have a record of their marriage?
