Tennie Lore Messer was my grandmother. She was the daughter of John Lore and Laurie Staggs. Her grandparents were George Staggs and Mary Ann England. I'm stumped from there. Tennie married Charlie Messer and lived in Carter County, KY all of their life. Their daughter, Charlene and son, Charles reside in the old home place today. My father is Marvin "Tobe" Messer. We have been researching the Messer's for him. Any information you have would be appreciated. I have much information, as does my parents. Maybe I have something that you need. Let me know if I can help you out.
