I have searched my file and found Ellen RISNER born 8/25/1857 and died 12/18/1937 buried in the Rose Cemetery, Wolfe County. William RISNER born 10/15/1834 and died 4/30/1898 buried in the Risner Cemetery, located in the Calaboose area of Wolfe County. Other RISNERS found: were in the 1900 Wolfe County Census 1-224. Shelton age 26, Martha 23, Ella J. 5, Rose B. 4, Oliva 2, and Myrie E. 3/12. To answer the question about Ellen's parents being O'Hairs, it sound like she may have been married before she met William. Note: William RISNER had the only marked grave at that location, but several other graves marked with fieldstone were found. I have a photo of his stone. If I can be of any further assistance contact me thur my son's web site, or write to Kendel Culbertson P.O. Box 326 Stanton, KY 40380
