John Collard
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 22, 1784
Christian County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Jun. 18, 1818
Lincoln County
Missouri, USA

John Collard was killed in a runaway horse/wagon accident in or near Troy, MO shortly after he moved to Missouri from Kentucky. Records of the administration of his estate are in the archives of the probate court of Lincoln county, MO. He was the son of Joseph Collard, a Revolutionary War veteran who was killed at Woods Fort (now Troy), MO in 1812 at the start of the Indian wars. John married Lydia Cannon, daughter of James of the Revolution, on May 31, 1806 in Christian County, KY.

Their children, all born in Christian County, KY, are:

Felix Alver Collard (1810-1864) buried in Oregon
Isaphenea Collard Wilson (1813-1871) buried in Pleasant Hill IL (Crescent Heights Cemetery)
Rachel Collard Stubblefield (1815-1839) buried in Pike Co IL
John J. Collard (1817-1874) buried in Pleasant Hill IL (Sapp Cemetery)

I am not certain where John is buried. His wife Lydia is buried in the Sapp Cemetery in Pike County, IL. I have found one reference on the internet to him being buried at Sapp Cemetery. His son, John Jasper Collard, is buried at Sapp.

I have requested a photo to try and determine if John, Sr. is buried there.
