Re: Captain George Washington Fitzwater
Capt. George Fitzwater was not the son of William Fitzwater. My Great grandmother Mildred Fitzwater Hicks Born June 21,1858 Nicholas County W.Va. Died April 17,1964 age 105 was Nicholas county's oldest citizen and mother of 13 children she was the daughter of John Fitzwater 2nd & Elizabeth Wiseman. Granddaughter of John Fitzwater 1st & Mary (Pollie) Koontz. John 1st & Twin Thomas Fitzwater pioneer settlers Nicholas County. Capt. George Fitzwater was their cousin. Mildred Fitzwater Hicks has one living child Margaret born Gad Nicholas County May 2,1901 she is now 99 years old. My Grandfather was Mildreds youngest son Cody Hicks Born April 15, 1896 At Gad. I Have Mountains of Fitzwater records plus Obits for Mildred - her brothers Clark- John 3rd - Lewis - Margaret plus photos of all including the graves of Mildreds father & Grandfather. Her grandfather John Fitzwater married Mary Koontz October 20, 1793 Greenbrier County Va./W.Va. -11 children John 2nd - Squire - Charles - Hannah - Catherine - Elizabeth - Miriam - Mary - Margaret - Jane - Charity. Squire Fitzwater in His will left Mildred's mother Betsy Fitzwater and her 5 children nearly everything he owned he listed her as his brother John Fitzwater's widow. Squire & Charles never married. So the only des. of the twin John Fitzwater to carry the Fitzwater name were the 5 children of his son John & Elizabeth (Betsy Wiseman) Fitzwater.
