Surnames: Bruce, Jones, Collier, Collin
in Alabama Marriage index it shows Elizabeth Jones married Richard W Collier, 13 May 1840 in Limestone Co,. Harriet was born in 1842. Murphy married Elizabeth Collier 24 May 1850 in limestone Co.
In 1850 Census Limestone Co, Alabama in the household of John Jones age 62, there is Elizabeth Collin age 30 and Harriet Collin age 8. After enlarging and carefully examining the census image I believe the last name is actually Collier not Collin for these two people. I can find no trace of Richard W collier other than the marriage. None of this is proof. More research needs to be done. DNA is a possibility that could show that Harriet and Jodie share the same mother or the same father.
I am not descended from Murphy, but from his sister Margaret. So my only interest is in accurate research in the Bruce family line.
