    Notes 
    • From FindAGrave:

      2 Apr 1935 - Mrs. W. T. Collier, widow of the late W. T. Collier, passed away at the home of her daughter, Mrs. E. O. Daily, April 4, after several months illness, being confined to her bed about two weeks. She was 76 years, nine months and eight days of age.

      Mrs. Collier was Miss Lula West of Milam, Texas, before her marriage to W. T. Collier, later moving to Many, where they made their home and reared a very large family, all of whom survive with the exception of one child that died in infancy. She affiliated herself with the Methodist church soon after moving to Many and has been a very devoted Christian mother, training her children in
      the principles of right living and also being the very best of neighbors, exemplifying the saying " Let me live by the side of the road and be a friend to man."

      The surviving children: W. P. Collier, Marshall, Texas; W. T. Collier, Mooringsport, La.; G. A. Collier, Hemphill, Texas; Mrs. E. O. Daily, Many, La.; Mrs. C. W. Johnson, Robeline, La.; and T. J. Collier, Oklahoma, all of whom were present except T. J. Collier.

      The active pallbearers were Boyd Harris, Elden Dees, Edd Curtis, Henry Lee Hester, Jimmie Hays and Edwin Fraser.

      Interment was made in the Many cemetery.
