ARCHIBALD WASHINGTON FIZER

Old Citizen Called

"Rev. A. W. Fizer died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. L. Daugherty, at about 12:20 p. m., Friday after an illness extending over several weeks at the age of 92 years and 21 days.

Rev. Fizer was born and reared in Robertson county, Tennessee, coming to Missouri in 1888 where he has since resided. He was married in Clarksville, Tenn. To Miss Minerva (Anne Elvira) Duke who succeeded him in death about 12 years. To this union eight children were born, three dying in infancy and two dying after reaching manhood and three daughters surviving as follows: Mesdames C. C. M. Gupton, P. H . Boyce and L. Daugherty, all of this place.

Rev. Fizer united with the church at the age of 10 years and not many years later was licensed to preach which privilege he enjoyed in the local ranks of the ministers. Rev. Fizer was a very devout Christian, and though unable to attend church services very regularly on account of his extreme age, though when occasion afforded he could be found among the worshipers, and last summer and the preceding summer he preached a sermon at the Methodist church and those present on these occasions will testify to the fact that both sermons were able ones and delivered almost with the vigor of youth. Aside from his church activities he was a valuable citizen and served his community in many ways.

Funeral services were had at the Methodist church Sunday at 2 o’clock conducted by Rev. H. P. Crowe at which a large congregation of former friends had gathered to pay their last tribute of respect to one most of whom perhaps had known him their entire lives. His mortal remains were laid to rest in the family burying ground in the Morley cemetery."

For all you do.....thanks!
THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY BY Thelma Greene Reagan
Today we alked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill,
Today we talked where others cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies,
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandpraents lay
In the last sleep of their time,
Lying under the trees and clouds
Their beds kissed the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot,
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay,
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend, preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

(Thanks again. I lost my 20 year old mother in Sikeston MO in childbirth. I never knew her. I finally got a stone on her grave about ten years ago. Ruby Prouty Twitty was her name. I was 16 months old.)
