In Reply to: Re: Jemima Somers b. 1825 Somers Point by Lauren de Moll of 799

Lauren - Jemimah Somers born 1792 married first Jonathan Doughty than George Washington Steelman. She was a daughter of Thomas Somers and Alice (Higbee) Somers. Jeremiah who married Sarah Endicott was a son of Thomas and Alice. Jemima Doughty Somers born 1825 is listed in the books in Atlantic County Historical Society as being a daughter of Robert Somers and Jemima Doughty (his first wife, he had 3). Robert was a son of Jeremiah and Sarah Somers, and a sister to your Elizabeth.
I am only saying it is a possibility that this Jemima D. could be yours - but it is a coincidence they were born the same year and in the same family. I do know that if there was any mention of illegitamacy the founding women of ACHS would not record the information. Recently the Overseers Poor Book was rewritten (the last 5 years)to include exactly how the records were originally written. That is when this record showed up.
I am not sure if gen forum will allow me to include my email address but if they do please contact direct - I can then send you an ancestor chart of Jeremiah Somers. Dottie
