Obituary: COLLIER, Bob, (Robert) Uncle Bob Collier Called at Age of 81 With sorrow and regret friends and relatives this week are mourning over passing of Uncle Robert Collier who crossed the barrier around 5:30 o'clock Monday evening, May 16th 1938 after a brief illness. He was eighty - one years and one day old. Rob Collier was born and reared within the circling hills of Letcher County and was a son of the late Wm. D. Collier, pioneer settler of this county. In early manhood he married Miss Martha Yonts, daughter of Solomon Yonts, a sister of Bill Yonts who resides on Goose Creek (Letcher Co KY). His wife preceded him in death about ten years ago. To this union was born eleven children, of whom all are still living, seven sons and four daughters. The sons are Henderson and James of Greenup, Ky, Willis of Neon: Paul of Cincinnati: Sheridan of Pound, Va: and Sod and William who live in the Ozark Mountains in Arkansas. The daughters are Mrs. Holly Yonts and Mrs. Quiller Yonts of Neon: Mrs. Pauline Riggs of Covington, Ky: and Mrs. Rebecca Sizemore of Columbus, Ohio. All the children except three were present at the time of his death. Mr. Collier is also survived by four brothers and one sisters. They are W.B., W.K., and S.P. of Neon: W.D. Collier of Kermit, W. Va. And Mrs. W.B. Reedy of Logan, W. Va. For several years Mr. Collier had made his home with his sons in Greenup County coming to Neon only recently to live with his daughter. Funeral services were conducted by Revs. T. P. Johnson and Roy Hall at the home of Mrs. Quiller Yonts. Funeral arrangements were in charge of the new Johnson Funeral Home and the body was laid to rest by the side of his father in the Huston Cemetery on Goose Creek. We extend sympathies to the bereaved relatives and friends.
