First Name:

Somers Family in Ogle County Illinois

Updated September 14, 2002

About Our Family Research

From the current generations back, our family contains members of the following surnames: Somers, Hinrichs, Hayenga, Alcock, Holmes, Gigous, Sturges, Stout, Austin, Downs, Bruns, Brink, Schier, Praetz...just to name a few. We've found branches of the family dating back to England and Germany. Stories of Canada, crossing the Atlantic on leaking ships, returning from Russia with Napolean to fight at Waterloo, hardships and joys of making a living farming in the United States after the 1840s all have been passed down to us from our ancestors. We're trying now to gather all the photos and letters and put the family story together with the help of our family here in IL and across the country.
