Hi Cousins! I am the great grand-daughter of William Samuel "Sam" Riley and Minnie Bell Menser. They are buried at Creekmur Cemetery in Dawson Springs,KY. I descend through their son Melvin Densel Riley and Viola Ollie Brummett. They lived in the Lantrip area of Christian County,KY before the goverment bought up all the land to make the Penneyrile State Park. This is where your Crofts, Hopper, Lantrip, Parker, etc. mostly married with the Mensers. Minnie Bell Menser Riley was the daughter of Solomon Marion Menser and Margaret Ann "Maggie" Parker. Solomon Marion Menser was the son of Noah "Doc" Menser and Louisa Jane Lantrip. Noah "Doc" Menser was the son of Solomon Menser born PA and Dorothy Croft born SC. Solomon Menser b. PA was the son of Daniel Menser and Catherine ?, Daniel Menser was the son of Johannes Jorg Maintzer born Germany and Catherine ? ... Does anyone have the maiden names of Daniel and Johnannes wives? Another question I have is Minnie Bell Menser Rileys father left KY and went to Arkansas and died there. Does anyone have Solomon Marion Mensers death date and where he was buried?
