In 2001, several descendants of Vines Collier, spearheaded by the late William Ramon Collier, ordered monuments to place over the unmarked graves of Sarah Elizabeth Williamson Collier (wife of Vines) and Vines Collier, Jr.  Placement of the monuments was accompanied by the DAR’s re-dedication of the Vines Collier marker on October 20, 2001.  Approximately 35-40 family and friends attended the event.
