Lear Cealia Cockrell and James Collie(II) married in Chester County, South Carolina. Their first child was born in adjoining Fairfield County in 1809. They joined the extended Collie family migration to Cold Water Creek, Lincoln County Tennessee where another child was born in 1812. They were still there when the 1820 TENNESSEE CENSUS was enumerated. Lear Cealia and James(II) with their children were enumerated in the 1830 TENNESSEE CENSUS in Henderson County. Their oldest son, William Daniel, married there and died as a young man with one son, Benjamin. Indian lands opened up for settlement in Tishomingo County, Mississippi, and Lear Cealia and James loaded their wagons and headed that direction with James(II)'s brother, Thomas(I) and family. They were enumerated there in the 1845 MISSISSIPPI STATE CENESUS. Son, John Huet, and daughter, Elizabeth, were married and lived nearby. Thomas(I)'s wife and a daughter died leaving him with a number of motherless children. Their last migration was west across the great Mississippi River into northern Louisiana where Lear Cealia's parents and other Cockrell and Huey relatives had settled in 1812. She and James(II) were living in the Forksville area of West Monroe District, Ouachita Parish when the 1850 LOUISIANA CENSUS was enumerated. Their son, Thomas(II), went with his Uncle Thomas(I) and family to Arkansas before 1860. Lear Cealia and James(II) were still in Louisiana when the 1860 Louisiana Census was enumerated. The households of sons, Moses Sanford and Charles Calvin, were on either side of them. Lear Cealia's father, Thomas Cockrell, died and her mother, Elizabeth Huey Cockrell, made a division of his estate among her adult children before considering remarriage. Lear Cealia was bequeathed some property as part of her share which she and her spouse, James Collie(II) sold to one of her brothers. This transaction is among the papers filed in the Ouachita Parish Courthouse. Clouds of the Civil War had gathered in 1862 when sons, Moses Sanford and Charles Calvin, enlisted in the Louisiana Confederate forces. Lear Cealia, her spouse, James Collie(II) and son, Moses Sanford, all died during the war. After the war, son, Charles Calvin, moved his family closer to brother, John Huet, in Jackson Parish before joining the great migration to Texas. He settled in Hunt County near his sister, Elizabeth Collie Hurt and her family.
