I tried to e-mail JoAnn Romine but it was
returned so will try it this way.
Saw your offer on the Cloud Co. GenForum to do
cemetery look-ups. I am researching a Kizer family who
left Clinton Co.,Ohio in about 1847 and passed through
Indiana, Wisconsin and MO on their way to Kansas. One
of the sons was a Phillip A. Kizer who married a Sarah
Wallace in 1853 in Clinton Co.,Indiana. By 1854 they
were in Richland Co., Wisconsin and by 1859 were in KS.
In "William G. Cuttler's History of the State of Kansas" he
mentions Phillip Kizer, his brother Carey Kizer and a
brother-in-law, Newton Race driving a heard of cattle into
Cloud Co. in 1860. Carey returned to Highland Co.,OH where he died in 1889. Newton Race died in the Civil War. Phillip and Sarah remained in Cloud Co. for the rest
of their lives. Phillip and Carey had a brother, Okey Kizer,
who is listed on the 1880 Cloud Co. census with Phillip.
Phillip and Sarah are buried in the Pleasant Hill Cemetery
there in Cloud Co. I would very much appreciate any info
on any Kizers you may have in your cemetery books. The
mother of Phillip was Rhoda Hendrickson who married a
George How at some point in Linn Co.,MO. It may be that they are also buried in Cloud Co. Margaret Kizer, wife of
Newton Race, married Israel Heller after his death. Another sister, Rhoda Ann Kizer, married Charles W. Earl
in1862 in Linn Co.,MO. It may be that all of these people are buried in Cloud Co.
Any information on these family members would be appreciated. Thanks so very much for your kind offer.
Best regards,
David Watson
