Butterfly you are correct Wash Messer is my great grandfather but his real name is George 'Wash'ington Messer Sr. Wash was just a nickname. The George Washington Messer (Junior) burried on the hill is Wash's son (my grandpa). I'm trying to figure out who was Wash's daddy?
Irene was grandpa's second wife. His first wife was Dorothy Seward Messer (the only wife he had children with). She passed away in Richmond VA many years ago.
Wife #3 or Grandma #3 as I call her (LOL) is Ella Mae. She's still alive and lives in Kermit. I'm coming up there to visit her this summer and gonna try and meet some of my kin folk.
Wash's dad is Johnny Messer and his mother is Nora Marcum. There children include L.B., Minus, G.W., Riley (W.R.) Sid, Noah and Lenora.

That is the George Washington Messer buried in the Carter Messer cemetery (1908-1988).

John Messer fought in the American Revolutionary War and was awarded land in Stinking Creek KY (Knox Co) from the government. That is why they moved from SC to KY.

My guess is Stinking Creek KY as it's name implies stunk so they moved to WV lol.

May God have mercy on your unworthy souls to get on here and try to degrade an entire family because of a few people that have made some bad decisions. I am sure none of the people that have posted these negative comments about the Messer name have lived perfect lives without sin. As for being uneducated I give you a quote from Forrest Gump - "Momma says, Stupid is as stupid does". So if you are posting negative, hurtful comments on here, well you figure it out (if you can). The Messer's are just like any other family there are good and bad in EVERY family. If you associate with the ones that make bad decisions well what does that say for you. Evidently you aren't making good choices either. God Bless.

You are not talking about the bad Messers. They all live in Messer hollow those are the inbreed drunks and drug heads. Yes the older Messers were good, but everyone I knew that lived in Messer hollow were no good.Sorry if I stepped on some toes, but you know I'm telling the Truth.
