    Source: Early and Modern History of Wolfe County
    John Collier left Wise, Virginia when a young man. He settled in Wolfe County and married Louisa Shoemaker. They reared 10 children...

    Collier was a farmer and Baptist preacher. He blazed trails over the wilderness that is now Wolfe county, in an effort to teach people the Christian faith. He is still remembered for the extreme stand he took against whisky, and he came to be known as "the whisky fighting Baptist."

    Some of the oldest people in Wolfe County may still remember the "June Tide", a dleuge the like of which has never been seen before or since. It came to be referred to as the "flood that John Collier prayed down" because it swept away so many moonshine stills as it rampaged across fields and bottoms. He died at the age of 56.

    Wolfe countians who are grandchildren of John Collier include Mrs. Hazel Booth, Mrs. Roxie Netherly, Austin Collier, Lester Collier, Wilson Alexander, Mrs. Logan Booth, Mrs. Callie Bryant, Mrs. Delphia McQuinn, Jesse Collier and Mrs. Lawrence Bailey.
