I am looking for information on an Alexander Wyzard, who was born in April of 1852.He purchased land in Howell County, Missouri in 1890.There is some question as to where he was born.
1900 Hutton Valley, Howell County, MO census:
Wyzard, Alexander, Apr. 1852, 48, marr. 27 yrs, KY, KY, KY, farmer
Wyzard, Mary E., Nov. 1856, 43, marr. 27 yrs, 11 chil., 6 living, CA, IN, MO
Wyzard, Wilbern E., Sep. 1886, 13, MO, KY, CA, farm laborer

Wyzard, Otto, Nov. 1894, 5, MO, KY, CA

There was also a William H. Wyzard living in Hutton Valley, Howell County, MO in 1910, age 31, with wife Charlotte, and children William, Nora, Clara, and Roy.I believe that this is one of Alexander's and Mary's children, although I have nothing concrete on that right now.
In 1930, Otto Wyzard was living in Phelps County, Arlington Township, Missouri, with wife, Ella, and son, Kenneth E.Otto was a supply man for the railroad, according to the census.
There is a Kenneth E. Wyzard buried in the Riverside National Cemetery in Riverside, California.He was born 18 Sep 1925 and died 24 Dec 1985.The birth year fits the census record for Otto Wyzard's son in 1930 Howell County, Missouri.I believe that they are the same people.
Another of Alexander's and Mary's children was Ida B. Wyzard, who married John H. Willbanks 24 Aug 1892.Ida is my 2great-grandmother.She was born in January of 1876.She is listed in the 1900 Hutton Valley, Howell County, MO with her husband and children, Maud R., John W., and another son, whose name I couldn't make out.Ida died, I believe, between 1900 and the end of 1905, as John H. Willbanks married Essie H. Denton on 29 Jan 1906.
If anyone knows of this family, PLEASE contact me.I cannot find many Wyzards anywhere!
Thanks for the help.
