James Preston Fizer
I love to share information about ancestors. There are some that I really just don’t have a lot of inform
ation to share. For one reason or another there just doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of facts out there to gather. It is most unfortunate when I can only find the dry details of the lives of my ancestors. Then again, there is always hope that someone out there will also be related to James Preston Fizer and they can help fill in the gaps. Give me a glimpse of what their life was like, their personality, some personal details.
James was born May 19, 1860 in Putnam County, West Virginia. He was married to Mariah Gordon Persinger at the age of 18 on November 23 1878. In 1900 the family lived in Curry, Putnam County, West Virginia. In 1930 the family moves to Elk, in Kanawha County, West Virginia. Nine years later he moves again to Cabin Creek, Kanawha County. He died in 1942.
