I do not have much on the Kizziah families as they are not in direct lines, but William KIZZIAH (married Elizabeth Boyd b Oct 10, 1809 Mecklenburg Co., NC) and family settled in Tuscaloosa Co. He had lands adjacent to James and Sarah (Boyd) Newell, Robert Boyd, and Matthew Pitman. Some of this land was near Cedar Cove church. Robert Boyd, bc1781, of Mecklenburg Co. was veteran of War of 1812 and received Bounty Land Warrants for his service. He and several family relatives located in Tuscaloosa in early 1830s. From the Boyd Family Bible are listed grandchildren of Robert as; Anna Karline KEZAR born Oct 21, 1827 and John Alexander KEZAR born Sept 1, 1829. William Washington Boyd, a son of Robert, married a Sue KIZZIAH. From this, I would suspect the KIZZIAH families were in the Mecklenburg Co., NC area in the early 1800s. A W.M. KIZZIAH was an early pastor of the Cedar Cove Baptist Church.
