  • Notes 
    • It has been suggested that Spicy Colley's maiden name was Floyd. Additionally, it has been suggested that William Hickman Floyd married David Colley's sister Helen Nellie Colley. The Colley and Floyd family came from Russell and Washington Co, VA to Greenup Co, KY in the 1860s. They were the first family to settle on Crane Creek. They built the first Baptist church on Crane Creek, a large poplar log building. The church also served as a school house. David Colley preached at the Crane Creek Baptist Church. The building stood and was used until the 1930s.
