Notice you have lineages for Andrew and John Albright, sons of Joseph Albright and Barbara Basin. My lineage is through the sister of Andrew and John, Sarah Albright, who married James Nicholson IV. Working now on the proof of my line trying to fill in some blanks. Depending on my progress, I may want to submit it when more complete.

How did you find us? by accident, trying to find a Whitesell list/relationship list i am working on.
Comments:
I am not a professional Genealogist but am learning by doing my own family tree, I am working on both parent's history and so far it is growing by far more then I expected and loving every minute of the process. I only started this in June of this year and spend approximately 10 hrs a day on it. The Whitesell family is related to my family. I try to verify all information for accuracy, find a lot of misinformation as I search, and no verification on many sites. I just do my best to make sure my information is correct. I take it very seriously. I have not yet looked at your tree to see if any and how many are also in my tree. Thank you for sharing your history and I will share mine also.

My paternal Grandfather was William Gilbert Somers. My mother was Wilma Lee Somers of Greensboro, NC. My information goes back to Wendelin Faust 1510 Hessen, Germany. I had never heard of the Somers-Summers reunions in Altamahaw-Ossipee. I spent summers with my great aunt Callie Barber there. I am so happen to find this new information. Are there be anymore reunions planned?

I am a decendent of Hennis J James. His son was, as I have it written, William Noah James, you have Noah William James. I have found it both way in the different Census documents and it certainly does have Noah W. James in 1860. One of William Noah James', children was Walter Alvin James (married Mae Alice Snider), who had three children, Corress Turner James (also spelled Coris, Caress, and Caris), Porter C James, and Leatice (also spells Letus). Corress, or C.T., as everyone called him since he was never sure how to spell his name, had one son, Richard James, my father. Thought that might help complete your fabulous information. I am just beginning to do reasearch on my family. Hennis James was always a dead end, but I am finding all types of interesting things for Nancy Cornelia Summers James. Thanks for all the wonderful information.

How did you find us? googling Caswell County Family History
Comments:
I was googling around re: my Mama's (Helen Clayton Somers) and then tried to find out info on my Daddy's side of the family - Somers - regarding my Grandma. Her name was Lillie Mae Dawson Somers. She took on the first name of "Dewey". She used to tell me about her mother I think it may have been - Julia (or Julie)Ann (Terrell ?) and her first marriage which resulted in no children was to a man last name - Bowles. Grandma would tell me how her mother walked down to the gate to say good-bye to her husband who rode off on a horse to the Civil War and died during the war and never returned. I always wanted to find out about him - and his family but have never been able to learn anything.

Do you have family history information to share? I believe so.
Comments:
A friend of mine ( John Whitesell ) and I have discussed whether or not we are related, he seems to have the last name Gerringer in his family tree. I am not very good at the ancestry.com website yet, as it takes a whole lot of time. :) I appreciate the work you have already done and thought I could add to your "tree". Please feel free to contact me at my email address.

I am an amateur like you with about 10 years "experience" I am helping a friend research her Leath and Easter families of Grayson County, Va. If she allows me to share any additional information, I will give it to you. I know how important sharing the least little fact may be to someone else.

What did you like the most about this site? Very thorough
Do you have family history information to share? Yes, regarding my grandfather Cosmo Lindley Somers.
Comments:
Hello. My parents are Glenn Dale Miller and Elsa Ingrid Somers Miller. My mother's father was Cosmo "Jack" Lindley Somers (born 1903 in North Carolina, died 1979 in Mexico City). It was great to see all of us listed in your database.

Cosmo "Jack" Somers owned and operated a 270-room hotel in Mexico City's Zona Rosa district called the "Hotel Geneve" for many decades until his death. The Hotel Geneve was actually designed and built by his father-in-law, who moved from Canada down to Mexico City in the early 1900's. My grandparents "Jack" Somers and Marie Sinclaire Gore Somers had 4 daughters. Their main residence was in Mexico City and they also owned a very large estate in Cuernavaca, Mexico. I grew up in Mexico City and remember my grandparents well. My grandmother (Marie Somers) was also an accomplished pianist, who toured and performed concerts in the 1930's and 1940's. Her ancestors originally came from Ireland and later settled a town in Canada.

I currently live in the Los Angeles area and work as a computer manager at a law firm. I have more detailed information to add to your database (births, deaths, etc.) if you're interested. Thanks for including us in your family tree!
