Dear Kathleen, My name is Leann Lang and my great-grandfather was Arthur Rizer, and he was from Allegany County, Md. He married Mary Ann Davis. I have been looking for any information on them. Maybe there is some connection with both of them being in Allegany County. Please e-mail me and maybe we can get a connection between the both. Thank You Leann Lang,
