Musser was my late mother's maiden name and I am just starting to enter the family history information she and her cousin (also a Musser maiden name) compiled over several years.
Very brief here is the links I found on familysearch.org by starting with my maternal grandfather JACOB (WILLARD) MUSSER b. 4 Oct 1886 in Holland, IL, d. 23 June 1943 in IL.
Family records agree with familysearch.org data that list his father as CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS MUSSER b. 16 Feb 1860 in IL, d. 4 June 1914 in IL. From there is agreement between the same two sources regarding, Christopher Columbus Musser's father being a Jacob Musser b. 1828 in Coshocton co., OH, married 14 July 1849 Knox co., OH. This Jacob Musser is listed as a son of Christopher Musser b. March 1799 in PA, d. 25 July 1871 in Holiday, IL. This Christopher Musser is listed as the son of CHRISTIAN MUSSER b. 19 Feb 1761 in Lancaster co., PA, d. 30 June 1840 in Coshocton co., OH. Married about 1783 to Mary Catherine Huffman.
I have recently corroborated the lineage of Jacob Willard Musser by talking with his niece and daughter of his brother Frank C. Musser. The familysearch.org record lists dates for both men correctly, but incorrectly list Jacob Willard Musser as Jacob "William" Musser and incorrectly list Frank C. Musser as "Francis" C. Musser.
There is less certainty about data on Christopher Columbus Musser's grandparents as listed in familysearch.org records when compared to Illinois Musser family records.
Several of these Mussers' in this lineage that died in Illinois are buried in cemeteries near Beecher City, IL.
