Franklin M Bizzell
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 16, 1874
Death: May 28, 1930

Frank W. Bizzell, who originally came from Tate County, was a teacher in Tate for ten years before he came to Quitman. He came to Marks in 1909, and taught in the new school at this place, being the first teacher to have charge of the new and improved school. After teaching two years at Marks, he taught a year as principal at Lambert, and was prevailed upon to cover a broader field; he was elected county superintendent of education for three successive terms--1912 to 1924. He had the satisfaction and enjoyment of serving through a period when the schools of Quitman County progressed from mere cabins to handsome new brick buildings, with every modern convenience. At the close of this term as superintendent of education of the county, he went to work for the American Book Company, and was working for this concern when he was taken ill in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and died there in a hotel.

F. M. Bizzell opened a coffin factory in 1936, with six employees; the production averages five coffins per day, and marketing extends to all parts of the United States.
