I use my names in a different manner. MESSER was my married name and the research on the MESSER surname is done by my sister in law. I have asked her a dozen times for her MESSER work but she is too busy traveling. So I have no help for you except that my husband MESSER s/o H. D. MESSER m: M. E. FULLER in Minnisota about 1925. Both their families were dairy farmers there. But the depression drove them to CA.
