I am trying to find information on my grandfather, Loranza Dow Kizzia, aka Ranse Kizzia, and his ancestors. I think he was from Arkansas. His name was spelled on my father's birth certificate as "Ranse Kizar". I have come across a Lorenzo Dow Kizzia in the Arkansas land records, Arkansas marriage records to a Mary Dobbs 12/9/1855 and Texas Civil War pension applications, which were filed by his wife "Mary Kizzia". My grandfather "Ranse" was born 2/10/1884 and died 3/18/1956 in Okla.
