Although he was born in Abbeville, South Carolina, his family later moved to Edgeville.  By 1815, he and his brother Jeremiah were both of age and consenting to Philip's sale of their father's land before Philip moved to Alabama.  After his first son's birth, George decided that he should look to the future and joined a party of his friends and acquaintances who were moving to the Territory of Alabama.  George established a home in Conecuh County near the present town of Burnt Corn.  The settlers were protected from Indian attack by an early fort erected by Major Warren.  The Kyser family was among those who took refuge in the fort when necessary.  Due to this trouble or to the malaria sweeping the area, George moved his family northward to Wilcox County near Pineapple.  He seems to have been a successful planter and was rather well-to-do in later years.

George was evidently a trusting, generous person for he finally lost most of his property by "going security" for his friends.  Following the annexation of Texas, most of his children moved to Texas. Malachi remained near his father.  George was beyond his adventurous stage and lived the final years near Warrenton (now, Richmond) in Dallas County, Alabama, where he died.  He had been twice married and produced ten children. --April Bladh Kyle. KIZER KRONICLES, vol. 1, pp 50-51.
