French? You must be kidding!
I believe these papers are the hand-written report of one of the genealogists hired by Jena Cuthbert Collier, probably in the 1910s. It traces Colliers all the way back to France in the 1200s and follows Jena’s line down to his son, Durward. This should be of interest to any of the Collier cousins, in particular, those in America that descended from Isaac Collyer, who came to Virginia shortly after 1650 and settled in York County (see page 26).
The report is quite lengthy (31 pages). I will leave it up for a time so that you can save it if you wish. Remember you should be able to “right click” and save the pages to your computer. If the quality is not satisfactory, let me know and I’ll see you get a copy with good resolution.
