Hello Kira....been a while since I looked at Reser page. My father and Velan Alexander Reser were first cousins. Velan's wife was Cora Alice Newberry.Velan's parents were Abraham Alexander Reser and Missouri Alabama Morgan. Abraham Alexander "Dan" Reser and my grandfather John Jackson Reser were brothers. In early l900's they were in Hilltop, Boone County Ark.About 1915 or thereabouts they went to Douglass County Mo, around the Ava/Mountain Grove area.Dan died in l927...Velan and his family went to Exeter Calif.
Velan Alexander and Cora Alice had 12 children.
Please feel free to email me if need more infor....I've got quite a bit...I can remember meeting some of Velan Alexander's siblings, as well as his mother.
