Illinois family located in Bloomington, McLean County

John A. Riser left Berkeley Co, West Virginia and went to McLean Co, Illinois.
His children included:
Amos Anna Riser married to Jasper Whiteman/Whitman

John Miller Riser married to Elizabeth Reichel


John Benjamin Riser left Berkeley co, West Virginia and went to McLean Co, Illinois. John married Florence Helen Whiteman. Their children included: Mary V. Riser married to Lafayett Frederic Heiner


There was also a Benjamin W. Riser b. 1839, married Sarah Elizabeth Mills. This Benjamin was born in Berkeley co., West Virginia, the son of George Riser and Elizabeth Potter. Benjamin W. Riser moved to McLean Co. Although I do not know if, or how, this George Riser fits into my Rizer family I have researched his children in both West Virginia and Illinois. I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has found the parents of the above George Riser.


Oliver Cromwell Rizer lived in Vermilion Co. Illinois in the 1900 and 1910 census. He is enumerated in 1920 at Kankakee Co, Illinois. He married Martha J. (Harper?) I am currently looking for more information on this line.
