Death: Nov. 8, 1946

Texas, USA

Thomas Jehu Collie, the seventh child of John Huet Collie(I) and Ruth Box Collie, was born in Jackson Parish, Louisiana in 1860, as storm clouds of the Civil War were gathering. He was about two years old when his father left to serve in the army for the duration of the war. His older siblings, William Daniel(II), Charles Calvin(II), Mary E., John N., Laminto F. ' 'Lee', and James J. 'Loe' were left to help their mother. The two oldest brothers probably volunteered and left home before the war was over. Thomas and a younger brother, W. Luther left for Texas as young men. Thomas married Sarah Ann Bell and they raised a family in the Texas counties of Cherokee and Rusk.
