Hello, my name is Marti Sommers. This is my married name. However, in researching my husband's familty for our Family Tree, I came across a Hattie Sommers on the 1900 Census for New York State, Town of Tonawanda Town in the County of Erie. Hattie L. was born Dec 1866. Husband's name was William J.Sommers Born August 1859. Daughter Laurie born July 1887, and a brother to William named Louis born May 1876. I hope this helps you. Lots of luck with your search.
