The 1910 census showing Edgar Simon RIZER and wife Lillian also list a sister-in-law named Edith TRIMBLE. I don't know the surname of Lillian ______ Rizer. Was she Lillian Trimble? Lillian was born Jan 1881 in Penn. Edgar Simon RIZER was the son of Simon RIZER and Ellen Matilda BLUBAUGH. He was born Sep 1878. Edgar and Lillian RIZER are listed in the 1900 census in Somerset Co, Penn., 1910 in Mt. Savage, Allegany Co, Maryland and 1920 in Wellersburg, Somerset Co., Penn. When did Edgar and Lillian RIZER die? They apparently had no children.
