Glad to hear from you. I believe your Philip Kizer, father of Arnold Aro Kizer, was a son of Philip A. Kizer
and Sarah Wallace who were early settlers of Cloud County.
Kansas. This Philip with his brother Carey Kizer and their brother-inlaw, Newton Race are mentioned in William Cutler's
History of the State of Kansas. This Philip A. Kizer was a
son of Phillip and Rhoda Hendrickson Kizer who were married in 1820 in Clinton Co., Ohio. In about 1847, Phillip and Rhoda moved to Howard Co., Indiana where Phillip died. It
was here that Philip Jr. married Sarah Wallace. In about
1854, Rhoda Kizer took her family to Wisconsin and then on
to Kansas by 1859 when they apeared on an 1859 state census.
Both Phillip and his brother and their brother-inlaw, Newton
Race, searved in the Civil War. Phillip and Sarah settled in
Cloud County, Kansas where Phillip died in 1882 from poisoning. The 1880 Cloud County census lists Philip along
with his brother, Okey Kizer as borders in the Loveless
home. Sarah is nowhere to be found on that census. However,
she made requests for pension from Phillip's Civil War service as late as 1892 and gave her place of abode as Cloud
County, Kansas. Phillip and Sarah had a son named John who
is on the 1900 census of Washington County, KS as is your
Philip Kizer, father of Arnold. NOW----do you have a place and date of death for your Philip Kizer, father of Arnold??
That should be at a time when death records were kept that
listed the parents of the deceased. Sarah Kizer should be on
the 1880 census some place listed with her small children
which MAY include a very young Philip. That would be the
link to these two groups of Kizers. Or a death record could
make the link.
