    (Source: Indiana deaths 1810-1910) shows Amanda Collier, female, white, age 45 years, died Nov. 21, 1906 in Marion Co., IN (unsure if this is same Amanda Collier m. to David Marion Arthur; if so, her birthdate would be 1861, and she would have been about 38 yrs. when she married David Marion Arthur).
    {See: Civil War Pension Index showing widow, Amanda Collier, applying for a pension after the death of her husband, John Collier, who served for the Union from IN in Civil War - {perhaps Amanda Collier was a widow [and no relation to Rena Collier] who married David Marion Arthur after he became a widower?; or perhaps her first husband, John Collier, was a brother of Josephus Collier?).
    [Another record: Shelbyville, Indiana Directory and Shelby Co., IN Gazeteer of 1892-93 shows one Amanda Collier visiting London. She lived in Shelbyville, Indiana in 1892-93- could this be same Amanda Collier who later married David Marion Arthur in 1899?]
