Charles Collie(I) was the youngest of seven children born to William Silas Collie(I) and Ann Chishom Collie. His oldest brothers, Lewis(I) and Jessie M., were born in Virginia as the Revolutionary War was starting.The next sibling was born about six years later after their father returned from the war and moved the family to South Carolina. Three more children were born before Charles(I) arrived. He was about fifteen years old when his extended family still in South Carolina joined the great migration west. They crossed the northern border of Alabama into Tennessee and settled on Coldwater Creek in Lincoln County. His older brothers and familes in Walton County, Georgia, soon joined them. Charles(I) was enumerated in the 1820 TENNESSEE CENSUS as 1 male age 15-20 in his father's household. His married siblings and families were nearby. Charles(I) married Margaret Clark and they were in nearby McNairy County by 1822 when their first child was born. Four more children arrived before his father, William Silas Collie(I), died in 1830. A young daughter died before 1840 and seven more children were born. Charles(I) and brother, James(II) and families were in Tishamingo County, Mississippi when the 1845 STATE CENSUS of MISSISSIPPI was taken. The brothers crossed the Mississippi River and were enumerated in the 1850 LOUISIANA CENSUS in Jackson Parish. The older children of Charles(I) and Margaret were young adults and the youngest of their twelve, Thomas Charles, was age 3. Their children remained close to the parents as they married and started families of their own. Charles(I) and Margaret led their growing family on one last migration, this time north into Arkansas where they were enumerated in the 1860 ARKANSAS CENSUS in Hot Spring County. Their children and their families put down roots here and decendants of the pioneers, Charles(I) and Margaret Collie, still reside in this area of Arkansas over one hundred and fifty years later.
