Bio

I have been using Find A Grave since Dec 6, 2009, and hope to contribute to the collection.
I will typically send suggestions for corrections and additions from using various documentation that I have obtained over the years.
NOTE: A lot of information from my Mama's research does not have a proper citation, because it was copied by hand from family Bible's and interviews of numerous family members. The ladies that assisted in this process did not make note of where the data was obtained.

My Mom worked almost continuously researching our Family Tree from her retirement from public work in 1979 to about 1995. Her idea was to be able to share the history of our family with others, as I continue to do today. It all started out to be a simple history of the direct line of her ancestors in the Somers Family, but as time went by it grew into much much more. Not only did she research the Somers and Summers families, but continued on to gather information and to research the Whitesell family as well. Both the Somers, Summers and the Whitesell families are related to each other at several branches of the tree. The amount of family information that Mom gathered inspired me to continue her work today. I give all the credit to her for taking the time to do the foot work collecting and recording the family genealogy information.
I cannot forget my Dad either. He was a very patient man when it came to Mom's work on the family tree. He always replied with his unique laugh when Mom told stories of her travels and findings.I continue today to add to the family collection that Mom started.

I hope you take a look at my family tree online and enjoy!
