I am searching for information on the parents of my great grandfather. My great grandfather was William Griffin Mizell, 1883-1965. His father was Mathew Mizell 1854-1915. I beleive his mother was Julia Turner. I would appreciate any information you might have on this family. They lived in Coldsprings, San Jacinto Co. Texas.

There are some more Mizell families living around Cleveland Tx. I believe it is on the edge of San Jacinto Co. in Montgomery Co. Check the Mizell postings in Family.com you might find something there.

I am related to the Mizells through Sarah Mizell. I found there are many Mizells buried at Magnolia Cemetery. To get there from Evergreen on Hwy 945 So. go 6 mi. to Magnolia, East on a dirt road 3/4 of a mile to the Cemetery. Two names mentioned in your message: Emma E. b. 1/17/1855 d. 8/27/1923 at age 68 and a Loma, not Lona, is buried there but with no dates on her stone. I have a lot of material on the Mizells including some letters written from Wm. Mizell to his brother Griffin Mizell. William Mizell could speak Choctaw Indian.

Not sure there is any connection here but I am seeking information on a Sarah Jane Mizell. She was born 19 Apr 1860 in Recklaw, Cherokee County Texas. She married a John Francis Elijah Phillips in Rusk County Texas. It is believed her father was named Tom Mizell. Does this fit in with any of the Mizell family you are researching?

My great grandfather was Thomas Jefferson Mizell. He was Matthew Mizell's baby brother. I have a picture of William Griffin Mizell and his brother, John Wiley Mizell. I also have a picture of William Griffin Mizell's cabin in San Jacinto County, TX. Let me know if you would like copies of these pictures.

They all came to Texas from Louisiana around 1874 with John D. Mizell and Martha Jenkins Mizell, Matthew and Thomas' parents.

Thomas Jefferson Mizell married Mary Ann "Polly" Lilley. Her parents were Charity Ann Whitmire Lewis Lilley and James Allen Lilley, Sr. born around 1802.
