William F. parents are James and Mary Ann Kizer. James was born in AL abt 1824. His parents were both born in NC. Mary Ann was born abt 1843 in Mississippi. Both her parents are listed as being born in AL.
James and Mary Ann are listed in the 1880 census in McNairy County, TN with William and Josiah as children.
I think James and John (my line) are either brothers or cousins (not sure). They pop up in McNairy county around the same time. Sadly, I am stuck and can not track them back before McNairy Co.
