Birth: Jan. 11, 1831
Steuben County

Death: Jun. 16, 1922

His obit is in the June 20, 1922 Courier. It gives that he married Margaret VanHusen (11-3-1833 to 3-31-1905, Avoca). on Dec 30, 1852. Albert was born Jan 11, 1931 in Avoca, son of John and Harriet Towner Collier.

Oldest child was Martha who married William Lyke. She is listed in one early census as Martha Gunsolus (a first husband?)

Second child was William H Collier b 1856. He's in the 1860, 1870 and 1875 census records with his parents. See Find A Grave Memorial# 15073652 for his son Albert John Collier. William's wife was Almeta Wise and they must have married in 1878 or before since Albert John was born in May 1879. In 1880 Albert John and his mother 'Sarah' are living with grandparents Albert & Margaret Collier (indexed as Collins). William is not in the census. In 1900 & 1905, Albert John Collier is living with his grandfather.

The obit gives a daughter Eliza Ann Collier. I have nothing on her.

Fourth child was Ida May Collier b 1871. In the 1910 census Albert was living with Ida & Henry Nilles/Niles. Henry was born about 1863 in Germany. They had been married 18 years and she had not given birth to any children. In 1920 Ida was living with a second husband Jim Palmer and her father in Wheeler. In 1925, she and Jim Palmer were in Avoca. An online tree points to James Palmer (1871-Oct 1927, FAG #66142295) as her spouse. The tree gives she died 1 January 1928. Burial not given. The marriage date given is 18 Nov 1919. Albert died at the house of his daughter Mrs James Palmer.
