The Coller line presented here goes back to Thomas Coller (1765 - 1838). I initially felt the family dated back to John Coller who emigrated from Lincolnshire, England and settled in Massachusetts in 1649. Another possibility presented in "Burke's American Families with British Ancestry" is that the Coller line goes back to Thomas Coller, who emigrated from England in 1714 and settled in the Connecticut Colony. He was born in 1688 and married Ms. Turner in 1732. Both paths merge at Thomas Turner Coller as the father of Thomas Coller (1768 - 1836). I have found nothing to verify that Thomas Turner Coller ever existed. Any information that would help fill in the details would be greatly appreciated.
Though this web site started with a focus on Coller, the ancestors of Pamela Nixon Coller are also here. Her lineage goes back to the Mayflower and Pilgrim Thomas Rogers.
Some trivia for recent Collers with Leary ancestors. Ever think you were related to Daniel Boone? Starting at Coller, trace back through Leary and Hinton to where the Boone family ties in. If you keep looking, you will find your way to Daniel Boone. He would be my second cousin 7 times removed.
