BAKER (BECKER), UTZ, SUMMERS (SOMERS), and VENIS Families in the Shenandoah Vall
Posted by: JOHN OTT (ID *****9344) Date: March 11, 2011 at 11:01:35
  of 1702

I am in the process of writing a historical novel that describes the lives of my ancestors, and would be interested in receiving anecdotal stories, legends, etc. about events that took place affecting their lives. I am not looking for genealogical data per se regarding lineages, births, deaths, or marriages.

Specifically, my ancestry includes the Baker (Becker) and Utz families of Shenandoah County, as well as the descendants of Johann (Hans) Georg Somers (Summers) in Shenandoah and Augusta Counties, and Heinrich Finis (Henry Venis) In Rockingham and Augusta Counties in Virginia. My book also will include stories about members of these families who migrated to Floyd and Harrison Counties in Indiana in the early 1800s.
