(MEISER, MISER, MIZAR, MIZER, MYSER, MYZER)
January 10, 1929
Abraham Mizer was born in Holmes Co., Ohio December 28, 1838, and quietly departed this life at the home of his daughter, Mrs. E. E. Graichen of Ypsilanti, MI, January 10, 1929, at the age of ninety years and twelve days.
He was married to Magdalena Fretz of Holmes Co., Ohio December 10, 1863. To them were born seven children, five of whom survive their father: Henry A., of Mantua, Ohio; Ellen S. Wilmot of Bronson, MI; Olive A. Graichen of Ypsilanti, MI; Minta F. Zingery of Redlands, CA; Nellie B. Powell of Clarkston, MI; Carrie M. Milliken died at Magnet, TX in November 1912, and a son died in infancy. He leaves also thirty-three grandchildren and twenty-three great grandchildren.
He had been a member of the Church of Christ for a number of years. Another pioneer has gone to his reward. He and his wife came to Isabella county in February of 1864, and started their home on what is now the W. R. Davidson farm. Their first home was a log hut where they lived for several years. In 1871 the frame house was built which is still standing, but which has been re-modeled in later years. Here together they toiled for years until they sold the farm and moved to Mt. Pleasant. Later, in order to be near their daughter, they moved to Ypsilanti.
The busy toil worn hands are now forever still. Ever ready to do what he could for others, he faced many a storm to accomplish when he undertook, and to provide for those who were dependent upon him. He was never happier then when he had his family gathered about him, and in his last years, he loved to talk of the experiences of those early days. His memory was keen to the last. He leaves to his children a rich inheritance, that of a true, noble life.
