George Leonard Lewis Franklin Fizer
Wow! What a long name. He is my great grandfather. Born in 1888 on August 27 to James Preston Fizer and Minerva Gordon Persinger. His draft card describes him with black hair and grey eyes. He is 6 feet tall and 148 pounds.
When he married Minerva her sister was married to his brother in a double wedding ceremony. The event made the paper.
He is married and has four children. He wants to be exempt from the world war I. When World War II came around he claims on his draft card that he has a crippled left leg. He works for Kelly’s Creek Colliery co. Kelly’s Creek Colliery Co . was one of the many coal mines that were in the state of West Virginia.
George died in 1963. I have no photos of him, and only know these few facts about him.
