We're from Worsley, Alberta, Canada. Researching records for all trees - myself and my husband.

Josephine Somers: Father - Willis Raymond Dixon
Mother - Florence Fanny McAllister

Roy Somers: Father - William David Somers
Mother - Bernice May Patton

I have information dating back to before 1685 on the Dixon side:
back to Charles Dixon b: bef 1685, married Elizabeth Fogan b: bef 1685.

Alexander McCorest b: abt 1756, married Mary Davis in 1876 in London, England. Since then, the spelling of sirnames has changed many times: McCorest to McChorrister to McCorrister to McAllister and even McKarister.

James Somers 1798 - 1873, married Elizabeth Snow about 1823 in England. In 1861 Joseph spelled his name "Summers" and was a methodist. In 1871 he had changed to a Presbyterian and spelled his name "Somers".

Thomas George Patton died 1983 in BC, Canada; married to Ida Jane ? who died in Alberta in 1924.

I seem to be stuck on the Patton research!

I would love to hear from you if you can help me out in any way, or maybe I can help you out! Possibly together we can fill in some of the "Unknown" spots!
