My grandmother's first marriage was to an Elick Alonzo Kizziah.Elick's parents were a James Alexander Kizziah from North Carolina and (Mary?) Lydia (Ann?) Hayes (b. 1855 Cumberland Co., TN).
Elick and his siblings: Elick Alonzo Kizziah b. 7/7/1884 Rockwood, TN Jack Kizziah, Rockwood, TN Joe Kizziah, Rockwood, TN James Andrew Kizziah, 8/6/1895 Rockwood, TN.
I am curious is this line is connected with the James Kizziah mentioned in other messages here in NC.
I would like to find out more about Elick, even though not my grandfather, he was my grandmother's first husband.Elick was part of a Medicine Show Company, I believe the U-Ta-Ka company.They were actually married at one of the shows on 8/22/1931 by Rev. Cadenhead.Elick was also known as "Arkansas Sam" and I believe he had a stage last name of Rogers.
I'd be interested in any information others may have and will share what I know.
